Bio-Elite Anti-Chlorine contains Aloe Ferox as an extremely important addition in the formulation.
Chlorine, chloramines and heavy metals are extremely poisonous to fish. These chemicals and metals are found in our ordinary tap water from our municipality supply. These chemicals are much less harmful to humans than to fish. It is vitally important, with any brand of anti-chlorine, to de-chlorinate the water before the water is added to the aquarium or pond to reduce the chances of contact between the fish and these harmful chemicals.
Bio-Elite's unique formulation effectively removes chlorine and heavy metals, both of which are extremely toxic to fish and corals. The addition of Aloe further enhances the protection offered by Bio-Elite's Anti-Chlorine.
In Municipal water, chlorine and chloramines are added to the water to destroy the bacteria and to make the water safe for human consumption. The concentration of chlorine in this water, is approximately 0.5ppm. Concentrations as little as 0.05ppm are toxic to aquarium life. Not only does the chlorine damage the tissue of the fish’s gills, but it also has a detrimental effect on the biological filter. The combination of these effects is what cause fish deaths, after having introduced chlorinated water into the system, without using a formula to remove these toxins.
Heavy metals, although not directly added to the water, are present in water that is added to the system. These metals are released into the water in different ways. The most common being that the metal leaches from the pipes that brings water to our homes and the plumbing in our house/garden itself. Alternatively the metals are present in our air due to pollution and cigarette smoke and enters our water system. Heavy metals are toxic to fish and corals and it is necessary to remove these to prevent the build up of the metals to toxic levels.
