KORDON'S Pond NovAqua® is a unique and safe combination of chemical compounds that produce highly desirable effects in freshwater and marine systems.
Pond NovAqua provides a protective colloid coating on a fish's body when the natural slime has been removed due to injury, disease or rough handling. The coating acts like an invisible bandage, providing a barrier against serious loss of internal fluids and electrolytes and protects damaged areas of the body against external toxins and disease causing organisms.
Pond NovAqua aids in concentrating certain drugs and antibacterials at the diseased or damaged site.
Pond NovAqua detoxifies heavy metals and is capable of eliminating free copper ions from solution. NovAqua contains cations and anions that are required by freshwater fishes. Freshwater fishes remove these ions from water via the gills.
The need for these ions is increased during times of stress. Pond NovAqua also neutralizes chlorine (free and combined). Its buffering action is designed to assist aquatic organisms in adapting to new environments and to prevent pH shock.
The use of Pond NovAqua is suggested for the following conditions at the rate of 1 teaspoon per 10 gallons of water:
Use at recommended dosage. Add to the water when setting up a new tank, before the fish are added. Add to new water each time a water change is made. If water is suspected of containing chloramines (a complex of chlorine and ammonia) or ammonia, the following procedure should be used to protect your fish and invertebrates:(1) Add NovAqua to protect the fish from stress, add a protective slime coat and prevent shock; (2) Add Kordon's AmQuel® to remove ammonia and chloramines from the water.
Fish and invertebrate shipping/receiving.
Pond NovAqua can be added to the shipping water before fish or invertebrates are shipped and after receiving. The use of Pond NovAqua will reduce stress, osmotic shock and possible chemical poisoning. The use of Pond NovAqua also reduces the probability of infection and increases the chances of recovery. It is recommended that Kordon's AmQuel also be added to shipping water to reduce toxic effects of free ammonia during shipping.
Fish transport from shops.
The use of Pond NovAqua will reduce stress and osmotic shock. Use at the recommended dosage (10 drops will treat 1 gallon). Add to the water in plastic bags containing the fish before transporting from shop to home aquaria.
Transportation of Aquarium plants.
Mix a solution of Pond NovAqua as directed under "Suggested Usage". Dip each plant into the solution. Wrap for shipment. Pond NovAqua acts as a humectant, holding moisture in the plants over extended periods of shipment.
Fewer losses will be incurred due to stress, osmotic shock and chemical poisoning if newly captured specimens are transferred immediately to water pretreated at the normal dose with NovAqua.
