Cynobacteria is usually encouraged with the presence of nitrate and ammonia, which are both fixed forms of nitrogen. Chemi-clean helps clean and remove this problem algae through its own unique process. Most other red slime removers use purely antibiotics, namely erythromycin to take care of the algae. The use of such substances with in your aquarium can have disastrous effects upon your nitrifying bacteria and cause your tank to crash, killing the inhabitants of your aquarium.


The use of chemi-clean not only as a problem solver, when red slime is present, but as a regular maintenance procedure will help keep your water crystal clear and your tank free of unwanted cynobacteria.

For best results, turn off UV sterilizer or Ozonizer and Protein Skimmer. Remove Chemi-Pure or Carbon Filtration for 24 hours following each treatment.

It is advisable to do at least a 20% water change after full treatment.

You must use an air stone when using Chemi-Clean. Place airstone in the aquarium prior to and during treatment.

I had a problem with red slime that would not go away with water changes and cleanings. I used Chemiclean Red Slime Remover and after two treatments over seven days, it was completely gone.

Worked as advertised. Had to remove with carbon before I could turn the skimmer back on. Some of my SPS corals lightened a bit when I dosed it so take your coral's health into consideration when deciding whether this treatment is right for you. 24 hours later, not much cyano disappeared. at 48 hours 75% of it was gone. at 3 days 95% of it was gone and I did the 20% water change and turned the carbon back on.

I can't say enough good things about this product . I had been battling with green cyano for well over 6 months and I tried everything. All my prameters were in check so I tried more frequent water changes while siphoning out all of it but it just kept coming back . Less frequent feedings , different types of to water ,. Increased flow . It lets came back about 2 days later. Not even 24 hrs after i used this product it was completely gone . I don't mean big chunks floating around my tank for letting to scoop out . I mean gone! Amazing product.

I recently moved my tank to a new house and upon getting it set up and going again had a really nasty red hair algae develop. This is a 3 year old tank that has never had an algae problem so it was very frustrating, I even lost a couple of corals due to the algae smothering them. I tried everything I knew how to do (more frequent water changes, adjusting flow, turning down lights, cutting back on feeding) and was at my wits end until someone suggested chemiclean. I followed the instructions and within 48 hours all of the algae was completely gone. I used carbon and a water change to remove the chemiclean and months later it has not come back. Super happy
