  • Removes chlorine, chloramine & ammonia
  • Detoxifies nitrite & nitrate, heavy metals & more
  • Most concentrated conditioner on the market

A paramount factor in the proper maintenance of an aquarium is the dilution of accumulated waste by scheduled water changes. This requires the removal of chlorine or chloramine or both from the new water. With the advent of chloramine, thiosulfate has proven inadequate, causing the release of ammonia. At acid or neutral pH, this is not of serious consequence. However, at alkaline pH it can be devastating, particularly if the tap water is heavily treated with chloramines.

alpha™ is a concentrated conditioner for saltwater. It is 50% more active than our Prime® and 375% more active than the next closest competitor. alpha™ removes chlorine, chloramine and ammonia. It converts ammonia into a safe, non-toxic form that is readily utilized by beneficial bacteria and reef inhabitants such as clams. alpha™ may be used during tank cycling to alleviate ammonia/nitrite toxicity. alpha™ detoxifies nitrite and nitrate, allowing the biofilter to more efficiently remove them. alpha™ also promotes the production and regeneration of the natural slime coat on fish. alpha™ is non-acidic and will not impact pH, nor will it over activate skimmers. Use at start-up and whenever adding or replacing water.

Sizes: 150 mL, 350 mL, 1 L, 4 L

Use 5 mL for every 300 L (75 US gallons). This removes approximately 1 mg/L ammonia, 4 mg/L chloramine, or 5 mg/L chlorine. May be added to aquarium directly, but better if added to new water first. If adding directly to aquarium, base dose on aquarium volume. Sulfur odor is normal. For exceptionally high chloramine concentrations, a double dose may be used safely. To detoxify nitrite in an emergency, up to 5x times normal dose may be used. If temperature is >30°C (86°F) and chlorine or ammonia levels are low, use a half dose.

So, we have had a DOA policy that has always been very generous. But lets just KISS, I mean “Keep it Simple Stupid”.

- If you have an item that unfortunatly arrives at your door in it’s bag dead, its covered.

- If you put a coral in your tank and within 2 hours of delivery it is dead, it’s covered.

- If your shipment is delayed by UPS and your corals arrive dead, they’re covered! (photos must be send within 2hrs of delivery even if shipment has been delayed)

DOA coverage means you will receive store credit for the item you purchased to use either for a like replacement item or on a totally different item! We do NOT cover the cost of shipping if you have a DOA item. DOA credit may be used only once. DOA credit may not be used to pay shipping fees nor counted towards the amount spent required to reach free shipping.

All DOA corals must be photographed within 2hrs of delivery, whether they’re in the bag or tank.

We do work with each customer on a one on one basis as each situation is unique! We care about you and our corals, and most importantly we want a good experience for everyone!
