Purposes & Benefits

AmQuel Plus rapidly detoxifies toxic organics, which is very important in overcrowded aquariums and ponds where waste products from the fishes, etc., quickly collect.

Another purpose of AmQuel Plus is to detoxify nitrogen compounds that accumulate in the aquarium and pond water over time, including noxious pheromones released by fish and aquatic invertebrates to signal and repel each other. This is specially important for reducing the frequency of needed water changes. Many larger freshwater and saltwater aquarium fishes release toxic pheromones to establish territoriality and repel other fishes. This is particularly true in fresh water for larger cichlids, and for larger marine plectognath fishes (triggers, filefish, puffers, boxfish) in salt water.

Among the benefits of AmQuel Plus are that it is easy to use and equally effective in fresh and salt water. AmQuel Plus does not affect the beneficial bacteria of the biological nitrogen cycle. AmQuel Plus is compatible with all water conditioners and all Kordon non-chemical medications and other non-chemical medications on which it has been tested, including organic herbal medications, and with all aquatic life - including live rock and reef tank inhabitants. Other benefits are that AmQuel Plus does not affect pH (acidity and alkalinity), and does not discolor the water. AmQuel Plus has a long indefinite shelf life at full effectiveness that is expected to be many years.


AmQuel Plus is harmless to plants, fishes, invertebrates (including corals and sea anemones), and other aquatic life forms. This product is safe for use in aquariums and ponds and will not interfere with biological filtration or its bacteria. When AmQuel Plus detoxifies ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, and other organic compounds, it breaks the links of molecules apart. The nitrifying bacteria do not know the difference and eat the parts, just as they would the whole original compounds.

Where AmQuel Plus is particularly useful is in its detoxification of all nitrates in the water. There are not sufficient bacteria in the aquarium (fresh or salt water) and pond water to do this. In the past the only way to get rid of nitrates from aquariums and ponds was by water changes. Now this can be done in a few minutes with AmQuel Plus. This leaves the main reason for making water changes (now needed less frequently) to replacing trace elements in the water.

AmQuel Plus is recommended to be used with Kordon's NovAqua Plus because they mainly do different functions that collectively are needed in aquarium and 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).
