View Full Version : Clarity quetsion
is it safe on scaleless fish?
i put some in a dwarf frog tank and they threw up i think
NO!!! Stay away from Clarity I just tried it and it killed four of my FISH. It seems to be way over-powered I would just go the natural way and use Purigen which is a natural chemical unlike Clarity

When dosed as directed Clarity is safe for frogs, scaleless fish and snails. Be sure to use plenty of additional filter fiber and pack it into your filter.
It is always a good idea to try to find the cause of your cloudiness prior to treating the symptoms. If its a biological bloom from a high ammonia or nitrite level than it is best to treat with a product such as Stability to add bacteria to help consume the waste and a product such as Prime to temporarily make it safe for the animals. You will need to dose Prime daily well the levels are high.
If it is a chemical precipitation the best course of action is usually a water change to get things back in to balance.
If the cloudiness itself is not the result of a harmful problem than Clarity should work well for you.
Meh, I used Stability with it but then switched to Eco-start (Eco start seems to have more in each dose) but Clarity as I said before I think it does what it says it does.. but just does it in an unsafe manner like other Clariier's such as Proquatics etc. I'm sticking with Purigen for a water cleaner MAN that stuff cleans EVERYTHING!

Water Clarifiers work well for clearing water short term. They do nothing to solve the problem that caused the cloudy water in the first place. If your water is cloudy because of a bacteria bloom and your ammonia and/or nitrate levels are high than Clarity will clump the bacteria and let the filter pull it out.
Purigen does remove nitrogenous waste and clarifies the water. It is a great product.
