ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 1100 Features and Benefits

  • Promotes a healthy aquatic environment for aquariums and small ponds.
  • LOWEST DOSAGE OF ANY AMMONIA NITRIFIER ON THE MARKET
  • Reduces or eliminates loss of valuable fish and other species due to toxic ammonia concentration.
  • Effective in BOTH fresh and seawater.
  • Effective even at relatively high BOD/COD (under 200 ppm)
  • Effective over a wide temperature range (49 degrees F to 149 degrees F).
  • Effective over a wide pH range (6.5 to 8.5). Performs best at 7 to 8 pH.

Aquariums and water feature ponds - ammonia nitrifier

ALKEN CLEAR-FLO 1100 is a liquid blend of nitrifying bacteria designed to control ammonia and nitrite in aqauriums and small garden ponds. ALKEN CLEAR-FLO 1100 is particularly popular for intensive cultivation of valuable decorative fish, where high buildup of excess nutrients leads to proliferation of excess algae and other problems. Where BOD/COD is also high, it is recommended that ALKEN CLEAR-FLO 1002 ,soluble dry water cleaning formula be applied to break down excess organics and suspended fecal matter and solids, without sticking to glass-walled aquariums. .Fish hatcheries, fish farms, lobster pens, prawn farms, natural lakes, ponds and rivers usually use our extra concentrated Alken Clear-Flo 1100-50x instead of this single strength product.

For startup, apply 1.8 to 2.5 cc or ml for each 100 liters (26 gallons) of water. Weekly follow up for the next three weeks is 0.9 cc or ml per 100 liters of water. Maintain with 0.5 cc (ml) once a week thereafter. There is no lower dosage aquarium Nitrifier on the market. Application with a syringe makes dosage measurement easier for aquariums and small garden ponds.

Nitrifiers consume 7.2 ppm of alkalinity for each ppm of ammonia oxidized to nitrate, so adjust alkalinity if necessary to stay within that range. Avoid using algaecides, herbicides, and antibiotics when using any ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® product.

Aquaculture

ALKEN CLEAR-FLO 1100-50x is a liquid super-concentrate of nitrifying bacteria designed to control ammonia and nitrite in fish hatcheries, fish farms, lobster pens, prawn farms, natural lakes, ponds and rivers. ALKEN CLEAR-FLO 1100-50x is particularly popular for intensive cultivation of aquatic species, where high buildup of excess nutrients leads to proliferation of excess algae and other problems. Where BOD/COD is also high, it is recommended that one of the ALKEN CLEAR-FLO 1000 series dry products be used to degrade excess organics and suspended fecal matter and solids. ALKEN CLEAR-FLO 1100-50x was created to save transportation costs and to allow shipment in coolers with cold-packs to maintain low temperature.

Bacterial species

The microorganisms used in this product include one strain of Nitrosomonas europaea, and one strain of Nitrobacter winogradskyi, which are both BioSafety Class 1 microorganisms, as defined by the Centers for Disease Control as unlikely to cause disease in healthy humans or animals. However, persons with compromised immune systems should avoid contact with open wounds and/or breathing dust or mist from manufacturing processes.

Large Aquarium and Pond Dosage Chart

Once a Week Dosages for Clear-Flo 1100 and 1200. Note that at the higher volumes, it is more economical to switch to the concentrate, ALKEN CLEAR-FLO 1100-50x, which has a different dosage chart.
