King British De-Chlorinator is an easy-to-use water treatment to instantly make tap water safe for fish. All tap water in the UK contains a certain amount of chlorine and/or chloramines, which make it safe for us to drink but are toxic to fish and cause damage to the fish’s skin and gill membranes.
King British De-Chlorinator removes chlorine, chloramines, heavy metals and excess ammonia, and should be added to any new water you put in your fish tank. In addition, King British De-Chlorinator also contains Aloe vera to help protect and repair your fish’s slime coat, which is their defence against infection and disease.
When to use King British De-Chlorinator:
• Setting up a new aquarium
• Following partial water changes or topping up the fish tank with tap water
• When new fish are introduced to help soothe and calm them during their acclimatisation to their new environment
Suitable for use in coldwater and tropical aquariums.
ALWAYS FULLY READ THE PRODUCT LABEL AND PACKAGING BEFORE USE.
Use 1ml of King British De-Chlorinator per 9 litres of water.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT USE IN MARINE AQUARIUMS
1. If you are setting your aquarium up for the first time, you will need to calculate the size of your tank. If you are unsure how to do this then please follow the instructions below. Alternatively, if you are carrying out a partial water change, you will only need to treat the new tap water that is to be added to your tank.
2. Select a suitable container which is free from any contaminates and has been thoroughly washed out.
3. Gently invert the bottle before use.
4. Using the pipette provided, which dispenses 1ml, or the cap of the bottle which holds 4ml, measure the required amount of King British De-Chlorinator.
5. Dispense the treatment into the container and mix with the new tap water that is to be added to your tank.
6. Pour the solution evenly around the aquarium.
Repeat the treatment each time you add tap water to your aquarium.
Formulas to calculate the volume of water in your aquarium
Square and rectangular aquariums: Average Length (cm) x Average Width (cm) x Average Height (cm) ÷ 1000 = Volume (L)
Circular aquariums: Surface Area (cm²) x Average Depth (cm) ÷ 1000
If you are unsure what the surface area of your circular aquarium is you will need to calculate this using (R² x π) or by using the following steps.
1. Measure the radius of your aquarium. This is the centre of the aquarium to the edge. The easiest way to do this is to measure across the entire length of your aquarium across the middle and divide by 2: Length (cm) ÷ 2 = Radius (cm)
2. Then multiply the answer by itself: Radius x Radius (or R²)
3. Next, multiply the new answer by 3.14 (or R² x π) = Surface Area (cm²)
4. You are now ready to calculate the volume of water in your aquarium
5. Multiply the new answer by the average depth of your aquarium: Surface Area (cm²) x Average Depth ÷ 1000 = Volume (L)
