When fish are reared in self contained water systems the problem of unacceptably high levels of ammonia usually arises. Studies have shown that even ammonia concentrations of a few parts per million can be extremely toxic to many varieties of fish and result in stunted growth, gill diseases, brain damage, sterility and ultimately death. Ammonia can result from feces, natural life processes, overfeeding, decaying organic material, and breaking the chloramine bond in municipal water supplies. Ammonia can quickly build up to dangerous concentrations if left untreated. Even when water recycling systems are employed in fish farming to maintain water quality, problems with high ammonia levels can be encountered during transportation. AmmoSorb™ Ammonia Removal Granules were specially developed to solve the problem of toxic ammonia levels in the aquaculture industry and aquariums . AmmoSorb™ will trap ammonium ions on contact and thereby reduce toxic ammonia concentrations. AmmoSorb™ is capable of removing up to 99% of ammonia from water and result in a safer and healthier environment for fish. Removal of ammonia results in improved growth and appetite as well as lower stress and disease.
