FritzGuard® is a safe and effective pH-buffered water conditioner that neutralizes toxic chlorine, chloramines and heavy metals found in tap water. FritzGuard® promotes healing and reduces fish stress with aloe vera and vitamin E and provides necessary electrolytes. Naturally secreted by mucous glands, the slime coat is a natural defense system that protects fish from disease, aids in osmoregulation and reduces stress caused by sudden changes in the environment. FritzGuard® provides a replacement slime coat to aid fish that have lost theirs or have been injured due to stress, poor water conditions and handling. FritzGuard® enhances biofiltration by producing a slime coat over the filter media, aiding in the attachment of beneficial bacteria, like those in FritzZyme® biological products.
Directions & Dosage
Use 1 tsp (5 ml) per 10 U.S. gallons (38 L).
For best results, add FritzGuard® to tap water before adding water to aquarium.
For marine aquariums, turn off protein skimmer for 6 hours after adding FritzGuard® to reduce foaming if a concern.
For areas with very high chlorine levels, dosage can be safely increased or repeated up to 5x.
