About Fritz Complete

Fritz Complete is a concentrated, one-step, full-spectrum water conditioner that detoxifies chlorine, chloramine, heavy metals, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate. Safe to use in fresh and saltwater, including reef and planted aquariums. Use when setting up new aquariums, performing water changes or to quickly alleviate high ammonia, nitrite and nitrate.

Directions & Dosage

Use 1 tsp (5 ml) per 50 U.S. gallons (189 L). For smaller volumes, use two drops per gallon.

  • For best results, add Fritz Complete to tap water in a separate container before adding water to aquarium.
  • No equipment restrictions necessary
  • No contraindications: can be used with all of our other products and meds
  • Easy measuring: the 4 oz, 8 oz and 16 oz bottle caps are approximately 5 mL volume
  • Make sure that there is plenty of water flow or aeration when dosing. The active ingredient can reduce the dissolved oxygen quickly when used in large amounts. Avoid overdosing or frequent dosing if possible.
  • Overdosed? Observe livestock for distress, perform small water changes if needed
  • Test with: chlorine test kit, salicylate-type ammonia test kit (those with yellow/green color charts) and avoid Nessler-type ammonia test kits (those with yellow/amber color charts)

NOTE: If treating aquarium for ammonia, nitrite or nitrate, base dose on total aquarium volume. For extremely high levels of chloramine or nitrite, dosage can be repeated or increased up to 5x within a 24-hour period.

    The dosage of Fritz Complete can be increased by up to 5x the recommended amount. If a higher dose is added to the tank, ensure the aquarium is well aerated and monitor the dissolved oxygen levels.

  • Does Fritz Complete remove chloramine? If so, where does the ammonia go?

    Fritz Complete works by first removing chlorine from the water, then binding with ammonia until it can be consumed by the nitrifying bacteria in your system.

  • Fritz Complete smells bad. Is that normal?

    Fritz Complete has a very distinct sulfur odor, which is completely normal.

  • If I remove all ammonia, will it harm the bacteria colony?

    Fritz Complete binds with ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate making them harmless to the inhabitants while still bioavailable to the beneficial bacteria.

  • What do I dose if my ammonia is extremely high?

    Dilute the ammonia concentration by performing a water change. Fritz Complete can be added up to 5x the recommended amount safely for high ammonia concentrations.

  • Does the ammonia or nitrite get released back after a certain amount of time?

    No, the water conditioner does not only temporarily bind the toxic ammonia or nitrite, and won't be released back into the water column after any period of time. The detoxified ammonia and nitrite are removed by nitrification or water changes.
