Novaqua, 16 oz.
[2651]
$7.35

NovAqua is a unique combination of chemical compounds and inorganic salts that produce highly desirable effects in freshwater and marine systems. There are many imitations of NovAqua but none can compare with the original "Bandage in the Bottle" in composition and effectiveness. The advantages of using NovAqua are: 1. Provides a protective colloid coating on the fish's body during injury. NovAqua utilizes a unique system for supplying fishes with a protective synthetic film "slime coating" which forms rapidly on damaged areas. As the fish recovers, the natural slime layer is replaced and the synthetic coat is sloughed off the fish's body. The action of NovAqua results in a "bandaging effect" on the body of the fish. The action of this coat provides a barrier against serious loss of internal fluids and electrolytes and protects damaged areas of the body against external toxins and disease causing organisms. NovAqua also aids in concentrating certain drugs and antibacterials at the diseased or damaged site. 2. Neutralizes chlorine, iodine and chloramine. NovAqua contains a two-component system which reutralizes free and combined chlorine (chloramine) and iodine in water. NovAqua is designed to neutralize up to 3.75 ppm of chlorine (free and combined). As a dechlorinator alone, NovAqua out-performs the majority of the best selling dechlorinators on the market. 3. Buffers Fresh water. NovAqua contains a high capacity buffering system that is active in fresh water. This system tends to temporarily buffer fresh water near the neutral point. This temporary buffering action is designed to assist aquatic organisms in adapting to new environments and to prevent pH shock. 4. Detoxifies Heavy Metals. NovAqua detoxifies heavy metals that even in low concentrations can be toxic to many aquatic organisms. Toxic metal ions in water can come from various sources including home plumbing, medications, lead placed in the aquarium, etc. The detoxifying process of NovAqua precipitates the metal ions into harmless compounds rather than chelating them. NovAqua is fully capable of precipitating free copper ions (Cu++) from solution, up to 1.17 ppm. NovAqua forms a unique insoluble, polymeric salt with heavy metals that is stable under conditions of both high and low pH. This is a notable advantage over other products that rely strictly upon the chelation process. Such chelates are unstable, pH dependent, and can exchange their "bound" metal ion for another, releasing toxic ions into the water. 5. Increases available Electrolytes. NovAqua contains elements (cations and anions) that are required by freshwater fishes. Marine fishes obtain their required ions by "drinking seawater", however, freshwater fishes do not. Freshwater fishes selectively remove required ions from water via the gills. The need for certain ions is increased during times of stress. NovAqua provides the electrolytes needed during periods of damage and shock in freshwater fishes. 6. Reduces toxicity of nitrite Novaqua's special clorides help reduce the toxic effects of nitrite by blocking the uptake of nitrite by the animal. SPECIFICATIONS: Contains a buffering system, synthetic polymers, reducing agents (dechlorinators) electrolytes and product stabilizers. Dosage: Use 1 teaspoon (approximately 5 ml) per 10 gallons of water. When using at the recommended dose, 4 ounces of NovAqua will treat 240 gallons of water. ---KORDON
