|ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 1400-50x is a completely reformulated two-part product. Part A contains ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 1100-50x, super concentrated ammonia nitrifiers. Part B contains three specialized strains of non-pathogenic, saprophytic Bacillus endospores, to degrade fish wastes and feed. When diluted 1 part concentrate with 49 parts of water, this formula will provide an improved environment and reduced stress for the transport and transfer of fish, eggs, and larvae. While our ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 1100, used alone, has been proven to enhance survival rates by 25 to 95%, we believe that the new ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 1400-50x will prove even better. Now approved for sale in Canada|

For each US gallon of working strength ALKEN CLEAR-FLO 1400 desired, measure 75 ml of CF 1400-50x Part A into 3.71 Liters of distilled or filtered water (no chlorine or other biocides or antibiotics) in a clean pail. Measure 2.1 grams of the powder from the attached packet (part B) for each US gallon of working solution to be made. Use some of the diluted part A to hydrate Part B, the dry portion of the formula, a little at a time, to wet the powder thoroughly, making a paste. Continue adding small amounts of the liquid to the paste, while continuing to stir, until it could be poured easily: the consistency of a gravy. Then add all of the resulting mixture to the diluted part A in the pail. The reconstituted mixture has a three month shelf life, at room temperature. If stored refrigerated, the mixture can be kept viable up to six months, following reconstitution. Prior to reconstitution, both parts have a minimum one year shelf life, if kept refrigerated.
If you choose to make a stronger solution, reduce the dosage by the same factor that you increase the concentration. This is a very powerful formula, therefore very little is needed to cure water pollution in transport bags or tanks. Be sure to include an air space in the bag or tank.
ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 1400-50x is packaged
in single pint bottles and 1.2 gallon jugs inside a cooler with cold packs
and an STP media vial, to verify survival of liquid portion of product.
The 1.2 gallon jug is 12 inches tall, 7 inches wide and 4 inches deep. Five
to seven jugs can be stored on their sides, next to each other, on the standard
refrigerator shelf. The concentrated product must be stored in a refrigerator
to maintain a one year shelf life. Diluted product has a three month
shelf life, if stored in pail that has a vented lid. Store the diluted
product in a cool dry place. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, or open wounds.
