Instructions and Guidelines
Do not use in freshwater aquaria; instead, use Clarifī-FW. Extensive research in our facility has revealed that maximum performance in freshwater and saltwater aquaria is achieved with different active ingredients rather than with one ingredient that is compatible in both types of aquaria. The active ingredients in Clarifī-SW are incompatible with freshwater aquaria.
Shake bottle prior to use. Do not "free pour" into aquarium, which may result in excessive, persistent cloudiness. Replace or rinse mechanical filtration material prior to use; when filtration media nears capacity (signified by a significant decrease in water flow through the exhaust of the power filter, or pooling of water above horizontally-situated filter pad material), replace or rinse it, and repeat as necessary. Skimmate production may change during the time that the flocculant is active in the system; check protein skimmer waste receptacle periodically after dosing of Clarifī-SW and empty receptacle as necessary.
Recommended dosage is ~1-ml of Clarifī-SW per 10 US-gallons (37.9 L). Dilute up to 10-ml of Clarifī-SW per 8 fl-oz. or 250-ml of purified water and stir to disperse; gradually pour the resultant solution into the aquarium in an area of rapid water flow. Allow at least 12-hours for flocculation process to complete; re-apply in 24-hours if necessary. Maximum recommended usage is twice per 5 day period.
Reoccurrence of cloudy water after Clarifī-SW has been employed to satisfactorily clarify water is an indication that issues referred to in Technical Background (opposite panel) may need to be addressed. The long-term successful care of aquaria relies upon the employment of sound husbandry principles. Clarifī-SW is not formulated to remedy water discoloration (e.g. "yellow" tint) caused by dissolved organic material; instead, employ activated carbon (e.g. Brightwell Aquatics Carbonīt-P) and/or macroadsorptive resin (e.g. Brightwell Aquatics OrganītR) for this purpose.
Caution: Do not use in freshwater aquaria. Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption.
