Shipping live animals and plants is a complex process, and temperature plays a crucial role in ensuring the safe and secure delivery of your order.

If the highest daytime temperature in your location and the lowest nighttime temperature here in Springfield, Virginia—where our facility is situated—fall below 40°F or exceed 90°F, we will proactively delay your order. This measure is taken to prioritize the well-being of the animals and plants.

For the safety of our living cargo and to protect your investment, we retain the right to suspend shipping as necessary due to extreme weather conditions. Our Splashy Fish team will assess the situation and determine if it is unsuitable to ship, considering the safety of the animals.

Can be used in any water temperature above 32°F (0°C). No smell and colorless in solution. The ONLY ammonia remover that has an FDA letter of determination. Can be combined with antibiotics and anesthetics.

NOTE: ClorAm-X should not be added to water containing active therapeutic dosages of dyes such as methylene blue, acriflavine or malachite green. ClorAm-X will interfere with their performance. ClorAm-X in combination with these products will not result in toxic chemical by-products.

Safer Than Other Neutralizers
You can over-dose 10x the recommended dosage amount safely. Tested with fish, shrimp, shellfish, aquatic invertebrates.

Ship Live Animals Without Toxic Ammonia Problems for 72+ Hours
Used around the world for bulk live transport of fish, shrimp, and shellfish. By reducing the amount of free ammonia in the water, transportation times can be significantly longer without injury to the animals.

Increases Rotifer Production
Ammonia toxicity is one of the biggest challenges with intensive cultures such as rotifer production. Rotifers have a very high metabolism and produce a lot of waste which change into ammonia and can quickly reach toxic levels. We use ClorAm-X in our rotifer grow-out tanks and achieve up to a 40% increase in productivity.

ClorAm-X is less expensive than other company’s products.

Effective Biofilter Replacement / Enhancement
ClorAm-X can completely replace the biofilter in a 90% recirculating system. It can be used to enhance biofiltration in any system since it will not disrupt the natural biofilter.

Fish Food Use
ClorAm-X may be used on fishes intended for human consumption. The United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has determined that the use of the chemical that constitutes ClorAm-X (sodium hydroxymethanesulfonate) in water with fishes, intended for human consumption, does not come under FDA jurisdiction. Click here for a pdf of the FDA's "letter of determination"

Use with Shellfish
As with fishes intended for human consumption, ClorAm-X may be used on shellfish intended for human consumption. In the FDA's "letter of determination", the agency states that the use of the chemical that constitutes ClorAm-X, in water with aquatic invertebrates (e.g. lobsters, shrimp, crabs, clams, oysters) intended for human consumption, does not come under FDA jurisdiction. Our double blind toxicology studies were conducted on Homarus americanus, American lobsters, by Dr. Paul Cheung of the Osborne Marine Institute (Brooklyn, NY) and by Leberco Laboratories (NJ). The results of these studies were a part of the materials submitted to the FDA when we requested a determination of the product's legal status with regard to its use on aquatic animals intended for human consumption. For a copy of the FDA's "letter of determination" please contact us.

MARINE INVERTEBRATES: During the development of ClorAm-X, successful shipping tests were conducted with a wide variety of marine invertebrates: shrimp (e.g. penaeids and Stenopus hispidus), Octopus bimaculoides, American lobster, Turbo and Conus snails, Aplysia, various squid species, tropical and cold-water sea stars and sea cucumbers, Metridium and Condylactis anemones, and hermatypic corals (e.g. Trachyphyllia geoffroyi). Additionally, over the years that ClorAm-X has been on the market, it has been used commercially by soft-shell crab distributors to prevent ammonia accumulation during the period the crabs are held before and during their molting.

FRESHWATER INVERTEBRATES: ClorAm-X has also been extensively tested with freshwater mollusks and crustaceans. These have included species of snails, shrimp and crayfish. The product is routinely used for ammonia control in the shipments of both freshwater and marine invertebrates intended for the aquarium and bait trades.

LIVE FISH FOODS: ClorAm-X is routinely used in the packaging and shipping of live aquatic invertebrates sold as live fish feeds. Brine shrimp (Artemia spp. ), glassworms, bloodworms, blackworms, Daphnia spp. , etc. , have been, and currently, are being held, shipped and packaged in water treated with ClorAm-X.

Academic and Research Use
ClorAm-X is used extensively by researchers doing remote field research where the collection, holding and transportation of live fish and invertebrate specimens is both necessary and difficult. When collected animals are held in water treated with ClorAm-X the effects of ammonia are eliminated. When used in shipping water the effects of ammonia and shipping stress are eliminated or mitigated. For shipping, the used of breathable bags greatly enhances the survivability (during and after shipping) of both fishes and invertebrates. For more information on the use of ClorAm-X on collecting expeditions please contact our scientific staff.

ClorAm-X is not a medication, chemotherapeutic agent nor an economic poison and is not indicated for the treatment or control of any specific or general disease condition in aquarium organisms nor for the control of any pests.

If used to remove large concentrations of ammonia (>1.0 mg/L as Nh2) in water with little (<50 mg/L as CaCO3) or no alkalinity the pH should be monitored. If the pH declines (by more than 0.3 units) simply add sufficient sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to boost both the pH and the alkalinity.

ClorAm-X is stable for an indefinite period if kept in its original container. ClorAm-X should be kept dry, but if the powder forms lumps from having been exposed to humid air, the lumps can be pulverized, as necessary, and the product can be used as before. Do not return unused portions to the original container; do not introduce any water or other chemicals into the container.

WITH OTHER WATER ADDITIVES: ClorAm-X is compatible with most other water conditioners. It is incompatible with strong oxidizing agents such as potassium permanganate (KMnO4) and its solutions. Due to its ability to reduce certain dyes ClorAm-X should not be used with treatments containing malachite green or methylene blue or related dyes. ClorAm-X is compatible with most antibiotics. ClorAm-X can be added directly to recirculating systems with active biological filtration; it will not interfere with, nor short-circuit, the nitrification process.

WITH TEST KITS: Water treated with ClorAm-X will give false (high), off-scale readings with ammonia test kits that use Nessler's reagents. Water treated with ClorAm-X is compatible with most salicylate and phenol/hypochlorite test kits. Contact AquaScience if there is a question about ammonia test kit compatibilities.

Water treated with ClorAm-X is compatible with all known nitrite and low-range nitrate test kits.

Water treated with ClorAm-X is incompatible with Winkler and modified Winkler dissolved oxygen (DO) test kits. These kits will give false, low, or zero, readings. However, water treated with ClorAm-X is compatible with indigo/carmine dissolved oxygen test kits and with dissolved oxygen meters.

WITH COLORIMETERS: Refer to the information above about test kit reagent compatibility. AquaScience has valuable information about ammonia testing using colorimeters and methods which require the use of a blank determination; please contact us for details.

WITH ELECTRONIC METERS AND ISE'S: When testing treated water with an ammonia ion-specific electrode (ISE) and electronic meter omit the step where 10N sodium hydroxide solution is added. Instead, dilute the electrode's picric acid filling solution with deionized water (to increase the electrode's sensitivity) at a ratio of 1 (filling solution) : 9 (deionized water), by volume, and measure the free ammonia directly. Refer to available charts to calculate the total ammonia from the free ammonia value determined and the known temperature, pH and salinity. Contact AquaScience for more information about how to do measurements with an ammonia ISE in water treated with ClorAm-X.

ClorAm-X is not known to be toxic to any fishes, amphibians, aquatic invertebrates or aquatic plants.

Solutions containing approximately 21% ClorAm-X have been shown to be nontoxic and nonirritating to humans. Acute mammalian toxicity tests were performed on rats and skin and eye irritation (Draize tests) were performed on rabbits. The tested solutions of ClorAm-X were found to be nontoxic at oral doses of 5,000 mg/Kg or less.

Double blind toxicities studies were performed on American lobsters to determine if toxic metabolites accumulated in the edible tissues of the lobsters. No significant differences were found, in aqueous and ether extracts of the lobsters' edible tissue, between exposed and unexposed (control) animals.

ClorAm-X is packaged in two convenient sizes: 1 lb and 10 lb tubs.
