AMC500 | Amino Acid Complex for Pond Water Treatment

SKU: H521-000-20L
Type: SFS

For use in low- or high-density aquaculture farming, AMC500 amino acid complex is designed to degrade organics in pond water where excess agitation, aeration or turbulence exists.

Through this natural biodegradation process, AMC500 controls the excess nutrient load and minimizes the malodors associated with it.

Is AMC500 effective at reducing pond scum and sludge? + -

Yes, AMC500 limits the accumulation of sludge by accelerating the digestion of uneaten feed & feces.

Is AMC500 effective at reducing toxic ammonia and other toxic gases? + -

Yes, AMC500 accelerates the reproduction of beneficial bacteria limiting the build up of toxic gases such as ammonia.


AMC500 is a concentrated formula that employs non-bacterial broad-spectrum amino acids, trace minerals and select low foaming surface tension modifiers for use in water treatment where excess agitation, aeration or turbulence exists. The proprietary amino acid complex in this product emulsifies organics in the substrate without excessive detergency.

This enables the natural biodegradation process of excess nutrient loading, other organics and the malodors associated with them. AMC500 is designed for low- or high-density aquaculture farming.

Special Instruction - Aquaculture

  • Dosages based on a one hectare pond one meter deep.
  • Adjust accordingly based on the depth or size of the pond.
  • Deteriorating water parameters may require more frequent treatments than weekly.
  • Apply only when culture animals are healthy and are not being medicated.
  • Maintain maximum aeration for 4 hours and regular aeration for the next 24 hours.
  • Monitor oxygen levels at all times.
  • Maintain healthy water and soil conditions; use LWT, LWTB or DWTB, IRB, DTM or LTM
