Kordon AmQuel 8 oz bottle - Chlorine and Ammonia Remover
- is an instant water detoxifier that removes ammonia, chloramines, toxic pheromones and chlorine. For freshwater and saltwater aquariums.
Kordon AmQuel is completely unlike those dechlorinators that claim to "remove" chloramines. Those products only break the chlorine-ammonia bond of chloramines by simple dechlorination, leaving the toxic ammonia in the water. Using those other products, the resulting ammonia must be removed by bacterial action which can take days or weeks, or by adsorption on granular or powdered zeolites (clinoptilolites). In addition, AmQuel functions as well in salt water as it does in fresh water; whereas zeolites do not remove ammonia in salt water. For more information on Kordon AmQuel, visit the Kordon Web site
