Instantly "Ages" Water
* Detoxifies Nitrite
* Removes Ammonia
* Destroys and removes chloramines
* Removes Chlorine
* Detoxifies heavy metals
* Adds a multi-part skin-slime replacer
* Adds essential electrolytes
* Boosts alkalinity

MICROBE-LIFT/XTreme has been formulated with buffers to help stabilize the treated water's pH and alkalinity (acid-neutralizing capacity). It removes both ammonia and chlorine by chemically reacting with them.

Essential electrolytes not only assist in buffering, but also assist in preventing osmotic shock often caused by new water. MICROBE-LIFT/XTreme detoxifies heavy metals (e.g. copper and lead) by both chelation and precipitation.

Perform regular water changes to keep the alkalinity (acid-neutralizing capacity) and pH stable. Use MICROBE-LIFT/XTreme, at the standard dosage rate, to eliminate and control each measured 1 mg/L, or fraction thereof, of total ammonia (= 0.85 mg/L total ammonia-nitrogen). Use a salicylate (indolphenol) type total ammonia test kit. For dissolved oxygen testing use either a DO meter or an indigo carmine test.

Do not use with permanganate-based or chlorite-based treatments. Nessler's total ammonia tests will give false, high (or off scale) readings. Winkler dissolved oxygen tests will give false, low (or zero) readings. The MICROBE-LIFT/Ammonia test strips are salicylate based and work well with this product.

Shake well before using.

To fully condition water for (1) new aquariums or ponds, (2) before, after or during water additions, or (3) before adding new fishes, amphibians, invertebrates or plants, add 1 teaspoonful (5 mL) of MICROBE-LIFT/XTreme per 10 gallons (38 L) of water. For larger applications use the following measurements: 1 fl.oz./60 gal. (227 L).
