AmQuel Plus rapidly detoxifies toxic organics, which is very important in overcrowded aquariums and ponds where waste products from the fishes, etc., quickly collect.
Another purpose of AmQuel Plus is to detoxify nitrogen compounds that accumulate in the aquarium and pond water over time, including noxious pheromones released by fish and aquatic invertebrates to signal and repel each other. This is specially important for reducing the frequency of needed water changes. Many larger freshwater and saltwater aquarium fishes release toxic pheromones to establish territoriality and repel other fishes. This is particularly true in fresh water for larger cichlids, and for larger marine plectognath fishes (triggers, filefish, puffers, boxfish) in salt water.
Among the benefits of AmQuel Plus are that it is easy to use and equally effective in fresh and salt water. AmQuel Plus does not affect the beneficial bacteria of the biological nitrogen cycle. AmQuel Plus is compatible with all water conditioners and all Kordon non-chemical medications and other non-chemical medications on which it has been tested, including organic herbal medications, and with all aquatic life – including live rock and reef tank inhabitants. Other benefits are that AmQuel Plus does not affect pH (acidity and alkalinity), and does not discolor the water. AmQuel Plus has a long indefinite shelf life at full effectiveness that is expected to be many years.
