    Kordon Pond AmQuel Plus removes chlorine, chloramines, ammonia, nitrates, and nitrites from pond water safely, easily, and in a single step. This concentrated formula is great for treating larger bodies of water and is often used to detoxify tap water or to clear fish waste and toxic pheromones that can build up in crowded ponds.

    AmQuel Plus is the latest development in state-of-the-art water conditioning technology and is the next step beyond the original AmQuel product. It provides even greater protection to pond fish and invertebrates by converting ammonia into a non-toxic compound that beneficial bacteria will quickly consume.

    AmQuel will not interfere with biological filtration or nitrifying bacteria and functions equally well in fresh water or saltwater. Usage will not affect pH levels and is compatible with all water conditioners, all Kordon medications, and other medications on which it has been tested. AmQuel is safe for all aquatic life including live rock and reef tank inhabitants and does not affect pH (acidity and alkalinity) or discolor the water.

    • 16 oz Treats 2,400 Gallons
    • 1 Gallon Treats 19,200 Gallons
    • 5 Gallons Treats 96,000 Gallons

    This is a concentrated version of AmQuel Plus best used in larger bodies of water; follow the label for proper dosing instructions.

    AmQuel Plus is recommended to be used with Kordon’s NovAqua Plus because they mainly do different functions that collectively are needed in pond keeping. NovAqua Plus is most important for treating tap water that comes from public water utilities that has accumulated toxic metals from water pipes, and in providing health aids to the fishes and aquatic invertebrates. See NovAqua Plus for further information. AmQuel Plus and NovAqua Plus are provided as separate products because they cannot be combined and stored together, without loss of efficacy. AmQuel Plus is compatible with all Kordon water conditioners (such as Kordon Fish Protector, EZ4U products, Instant Water Conditioners and Tabs, Tidy-Tank,Tidy Turtle,organic preventatives and treatments (including Kordon organic treatments Ich-Attack, Prevent-Ich, Rid-Fungus), and water clarifiers (Trans-Clear, Sea-Clear). As a general rule, when using tap water in which chlorine and chloramines are present, but not nitrites, nitrates or other organics — it is safe to use the less expensive AmQuel. If there is the possibility of nitrites, nitrates and other toxic organics being involved in the water, then AmQuel Plus is recommended. Instructions: Add AmQuel Plus to the water at the recommended dosages on the packaging. Since AmQuel Plus rapidly spreads through the water, no special agitation is needed. Its action on chlorines will be in seconds. Most of the reactions on other nitrogen compounds in the water will be over the first five minutes, and the slight remainder will be detoxified over the next 24 hours. Note that Amquel has an acerbic odor that will quickly dissipate after use.


    AmQuel Plus should not be added to water containing active, therapeutic dosages of chemical dyes such as methylene blue, acriflavine, malachite green, potassium permanganate, iodine, and acriflavine, since AmQuel Plus will interfere with their proper performance. Combining AmQuel Plus with these dyes will not result in toxic chemical by-products. AmQuel Plus can be useful in those instances when it is desirable to terminate a treatment with a chemical dye Use of AmQuel Plus with organic herbal treatments: responding to inquiries about the use of AmQuel Plus with Kordon naphthoquinone treatments Ich-Attack, Rid-Fungus, and Prevent-Ich, it is safe to use all organic herbal treatments with AmQuel Plus without interference with each other. Also see above under Compatibilities. Compatibility of AmQuel Plus with water test kits: since a significant number of water test kits for aquarium and pond keeping are inaccurate, this is an important issue for those trying to make water tests. AmQuel Plus is compatible to use with those water quality test kits on the market that are fully effective (see note below), except for the ammonia test kits that use Nessler reagents that read in shades of amber or yellow, and the oxygen test kits that use Winkler reagents. Residual AmQuel Plus and its reaction products are incompatible with the Nessler and Winkler type reagents, resulting in false, high ammonia and low oxygen concentration readings. Ammonia test kits using Salicylate-type reagents (reading on a colorimetric scale from yellow to green to blue green) are appropriate for accurate test results.


    AmQuel Plus is non-toxic when used as directed. Many hundreds of kinds of freshwater and marine fishes, aquatic invertebrates and plants have been exposed to multiple full doses of AmQuel Plus during extended test periods and general use with no toxic effects. AmQuel Plus does not reach toxic levels even in cases of accidental or purposeful overdosing. AmQuel Plus is non-toxic to humans and no special precautions are necessary in handling this product.
