Filtration media for control of chloramines, ammonia, ammonium, and organic waste in ponds, water gardens, tap water, and fish transportation bags
Removes ammonium, ammonia, chloramines, and dissolved organic material, promoting water quality
Average particle size encourages optimal flow and effectiveness
Carbon features high capacity for organic removal, high Iodine number, and minimal dust
May be used as a transportation aid in bags used to ship koi and other pond fish; provides relief from ammonium, ammonia, and nitrite for up to 72 hours when used as directed
Prior to first use, rinse under a stream of fresh water. A mechanical pre-filter placed upstream of FlorinCarbonīt-Z will prolong effectiveness; rinse pre-filter every 3 - 4 days if leaving FlorinCarbonīt-Z in place in the pond for prolonged periods of time. The slower the flow of water through the media, the more efficiently FlorinCarbonīt-Z will perform. Begin with 500 g per 1,000 US-gallons in the system per week and adjust this ratio as conditions dictate. In high-nutrient ponds, replace after 4 days of total use; placement in lower-nutrient ponds may be extended up to 30 days of total use. Canister filtration: Load FlorinCarbonīt-Z into filter cartridge as directed by filter manufacturer. Passive filtration: Place FlorinCarbonīt-Z in an 800-micron mesh filter bag and locate in an area of low- to medium-flow. Turning bag over once during usage increases effectiveness of this method.
Instructions for Shipping Bag Use: Use 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon FlorinCarbonīt-Z per quart shipping water in bag. When shipping multiple specimens together, or when shipping particularly large specimens, use up to 3/4 teaspoon FlorinCarbonīt-Z per quart shipping water in bag.
Caution: Keep out of reach of children; discard empty bag to prevent choking hazard. Not for human consumption.
