FritzGuard® is a safe and effective pH-buffered water conditioner that neutralizes toxic chlorine, chloramines and heavy metals found in tap water. FritzGuard® promotes healing and reduces fish stress with aloe vera and vitamin E and provides necessary electrolytes. Naturally secreted by mucous glands, the slime coat is a natural defense system that protects fish from disease, aids in osmoregulation and reduces stress caused by sudden changes in the environment. FritzGuard® provides a replacement slime coat to aid fish that have lost theirs or have been injured due to stress, poor water conditions and handling. FritzGuard® enhances biofiltration by producing a slime coat over the filter media, aiding in the attachment of beneficial bacteria, like those in FritzZyme® biological products.
Directions & Dosage
Use 1 tsp (5 ml) per 10 U.S. gallons (38 L). For best results, add FritzGuard® to tap water before adding water to aquarium. For marine aquariums, turn off protein skimmer for 6 hours after adding FritzGuard® to reduce foaming if a concern. For areas with very high chlorine levels, dosage can be safely increased or repeated up to 5x.
Fritz products are very effective and reliable. I have been using them for years with consistently excellent results.
It works for me. My fish seem indifferent to it.
KG Tropicals is great, as always. This is by far the best water conditioner for my needs.
I keep peacock gudgeons who are known for having thinner slime coats. Sometimes after breeding(mine breed very often)or during an illness they can just not be quite right. I feel like using this has made a difference in their health and disposition. They seem more active and have better appetites using fritzguard. Maybe a fluke but I don't think so. It can cause minor foaming at first if using sponge filters or have a lot of surface agitation.
