A few people have been asking a lot off questions about MKF organic water conditioner so i hope this clarifies few things.

MKF organic water conditioner

Ascorbic acid (non commercial), trade secrets apply. Ascorbic acid is used to neutralise chlorine and chloramines the basic verson off chemistry is this. Ascorbic acid + Chloramine = dehydroascorbic acid + Ammonium Chloride C6H8O6 + NH2Cl = C6H6O6 + NH4Cl so basically turns into fertiliser salt for plants(removed via gravel vac but not required to be removed , chlorine equation C5H5O5CH2OH + HOCL → C5H3O5CH2OH + HCl + H2O (chemical reaction happens almost instant upon contact . Not only does it helps make water safe but also provides better health benefits for aquarium and aquatic life.

zeolite trade secrets apply. sole purpose is to provide a general low ppm trace elements for vitality of aquatic life, this is necessary for all life forms to maintain long life span and growth, also helps with maintaining aquarium long after water changes by absorbing ammonia and nitrates and other heavy metals over longer period of time making water changes further apart (zeolite is NOT fast acting) .

barley straw extract was added to help aid in algae control after water changes breaks down within the water acts like hydrogen peroxide minimising new algae growth.

aloe vera added to minimise stress from water change on all aquatic life.

MKF chemicals designed and developed mkf organic water conditioner as an all in one taking into account right there and then (water change) the longer after care (zeolite) the vitality of aquatic life (vitamin c , aloe vera, ) and consideration off keeping aquarium clean by limiting nuisance algae growth. Last but not least added benefit off using a 100% chemical free water conditioner.

MKF reserves the right of trade secrets, but warning to any one tries using vitamin c from your local chemist will most likely have adverse effect on aquatic life, in this case we recommend using MKF normal water conditioner to counter act these issues.

MKF organic water conditioner took over several years to perfect with ongoing help from various chemist and Murdoch university.

Vit C is used on a commercial scale as it reduces water oxygen content less than hypo or the sulphur compounds. You cant promote it as latest and greatest....  and then try warn people if they try to DIY it could be disaster. Its a forum lol, you just handed out a recipe. May as well have been for european shrimp mix ;)

I found this quite useful. Tbh, wasn't really sure what organic meant and thus the water conditioner did. So on the customer pov for myself I liked the post.
