Does API TRIPLE SULFA™ fish remedy affect water pH?
None of our fish remedies affect the pH to any appreciable amount in the normal aquarium environment, as therapeutic levels of the fish remedies are measured in ppm amounts (we are adding very little for the volume of water). That said, if a pH change does occur, that means that there is actually a different issue in the aquarium: that of low KH. Low KH in the aquarium will cause pH swings when any acidic or basic material (no matter how small) is added to the aquarium and is an inherently dangerous situation for the fish. If you are concerned with pH changes, make sure that your KH is above 40-50ppm (around 3 DKH). This will ensure that no pH swings occur.
Will API TRIPLE SULFA™ fish remedy help swim bladder disease?
No, API TRIPLE SULFA fish remedy is not intended to help swim bladder disease.
Should I remove my filtration media before dosing with API TRIPLE SULFA™ fish remedy?
Products that are designed to remove things from your aquarium, such as filter media, will also remove dosed fish remedy from your tank. For best results from fish remedy, remove your filtration media as you dose.
