Preparation Instructions

It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. To be used only in established aquariums. Before applying, it is recommended you first remove as much algae as possible by cleaning the glass and decor. This will allow Tetra AlgaeControl to be its most effective at reducing the remaining algae and inhibiting new algae growth. Remove activated carbon filters for 6 - 8 hours after dosing. Be prepared to clean out additional algae as it is killed to prevent deterioration of water quality. Add 1 ml of Tetra AlgaeControl for every 12 gallons (45 L) of aquarium water. For smaller aquariums a well rinsed test vial from a Tetra test kit can be used or use the dropper applicator at a rate of one drop / gallon (3.8 L). Do not overdose. Adding Tetra AlgaeControl in areas of high water agitation or by pre-diluting Tetra AlgaeControl in a cup of aquarium water will help to distribute the active ingredient. Ensure the aquarium is well aerated. Dosage may be repeated if needed every three days for up to three total doses, then clean the aquarium of dead algae. For regular maintenance, use as algae starts to reappear.
