alpha is a concentrated conditioner for saltwater. It is a least 50% more active than competing water conditioners. alpha removes chlorine, chloramine, and ammonia. It converts ammonia into a safe, non-toxic form that is readily utilized by beneficial bacteria and reef inhabitants such as clams. alpha may be used during tank cycling to alleviate ammonia/nitrite toxicity. alpha detoxifies nitrite and nitrate, allowing the biofilter to more efficiently remove them. alpha also promotes the production and regeneration of the natural slime coat of fish. alpha is non-acidic and will not impact pH, nor will it over activate skimmers. Use at start-up and whenever adding or replacing water.
Keywords: conditioner, dechlorinator, detoxifier

Review Date: Mon January 26, 2009 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: $12.50 | Rating: 10 

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Inexensive, lasts a long time, a little does a lot
Cons: no found

I have excellent tap water that allows me to simply use a dechlorinator before using the water in my reef. alpha, from the aquavitro line by Seachem is the best dechlorinator I have found yet for use with marine environments. Like many of the products in the aquavitro line, it is winning fans in the marine hobby more and more.

1mL of alpha removes0.8 mg/L of ammonia, 1.2mg/L of Chloramine, or 3.3mg/L of Chlorine.
