Flora Viv Blackwater is designed to simulate conditions of color and content of Amazon and similar forested river regions of South America, Southeast Asia and Africa.

It is particularly useful as an aid to induce spawning and hatching of certain species of fishes native to those areas.
It will tint the water a light yellow to a light brown color, depending on the amount used, reducing stress and improving color and vigor of fishes.
Flora Viv Blackwater contains naturally chelated iron, other minerals, and vitamins that will stimulate biological cycles in fishes and plants, without causing unsightly algae growth.

Flora Viv Blackwater contains no gluconates, or dangerous polycycloglutaracetal, or glutaraldehyde as some competing products do.

Directions and Protocol:
Remove carbon and resin filtration because it may remove the Blackwater. Shake well prior to use. Add 1 capful (5 ml) per 20 US-gallons (200 L) of freshwater aquarium water once or twice per week, as needed to support blackwater conditions. Dosage may be divided and added more often to suit your particular needs.

Expert Use:
Remove carbon and resin filtration because it may remove the Blackwater. Shake well prior to use. Add 1 capful (5 ml) per 20 US-gallons (200 L) of freshwater aquarium water once every other day as needed to provide the level of coloration that you are looking for. Consult texts on spawning habits for the species of fishes you are keeping to determine their requirements for blackwater and gradually increase color, as needed until spawning and hatching is complete. Gradually reduce dosing over several days to return the aquarium to normal.

Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption. If ingested drink water, contact a poison control center. If in eyes flush with water.
