Manufactured by Aquarium Pharmaceuticals .. For Green Water and String Algae
Treats up to 2400 gallons per 16 oz.
Pond Care AlgaeFix™ will clear up those nasty strands of algae safely and with little fuss. When used in conjunction with barley bales you end up with a total String Algae and Blanket Weed solution. Pond Care AlgaeFix™ clears up String Algae that is already present in the pond but has little preventative effect to keep the algae from returning. As pond water runs through barley bales the barley begins to break down and releases enzymes into the water that retard the growth of any new algae. Treat the water immediately with Pond Care AlgaeFix™ according to the instructions on the label. It takes several weeks for the enzymes in the barley to begin working properly so additional treatments of Pond Care AlgaeFix™ may be necessary during this time. Remember that Pond Care AlgaeFix™ is a temporary fix. Barley bales should be used in conjunction with Pond Care AlgaeFix™ to offer a total solution to the String Algae problem.

Add 1 teaspoonful (5 ml) of Pond Care AlgaeFix™ for every 50 US gallons (190 L) of pond/fountain water. Thoroughly mix Pond Care AlgaeFix™ into the pond/fountain water by adding it near the pump outflow, waterfall, or aeration device. Pond Care AlgaeFix™ can be mixed in a bucket of pond/fountain water and dispersed evenly around the pond/fountain. Repeat dose every 3 days until algae is controlled. Be prepared to siphon out dead filamentous algae. Once algal growth is under control, add one dose per week. Weekly doses of Pond Care AlgaeFix™ will control algal growth and reduce pond/fountain maintenance.
When algae dies it consumes great amounts of the ponds supply of dissolved oxygen. Killing all the algae at once with Pond Care AlgaeFix™ can be disastrous if proper precautions are not taken. Aerate the pond heavily when using Pond Care AlgaeFix™. Never use Pond Care AlgaeFix™ at dusk or at night when oxygen levels are low. Do not treat the pond with Pond Care AlgaeFix™ and leave. Keep an eye on the fish during treatment with Pond Care AlgaeFix™ and if the fish come to the surface as if gasping for air make an immediate water change to dilute the treatment!
