Chemiclean Review

If you are looking into buying chemiclean, you have come to the right place. I am going to go into detail about the effect Chemiclean has on fish, corals, and cyanobacteria. This is my Chemiclean review.

Before I get started, let me just say I have used this product twice in my 29 gallon reef tank with great success.

As always, make sure you try to get rid of the bacteria using a more natural approach first as described in our how to get rid of cyanobacteria article. If all else fails, then try chemiclean.


This product is fairly easy to use, given the instructions on the packaging. Two very important steps to remember is to add some sort of aeration to the water using an air stone and to do a water change 48 hours after you add the chemical to your water. If you forget to do the water change, you may be risking the health of your fish and corals.

Effect on Corals and Fish

There were no noticeable effects on any of my corals, fish, and inverts when I used this product. I have an aquarium filled with corals (ranging from LPS to SPS), 2 clown fish, 1 six line wrasse, 1 blood shrimp, and the usual cleanup crew consisting of assorted hermit crabs and snails.

Effect on Cyanobacteria “Red Slime”

When I dose, I dose at 12pm so that I can do a water change at 12pm on the second day following the dosage. This just helps me keep track of the 48 hour time limit the directions say not to pass. During the first day of dosing, there was only a little effect on the cyanobacteria (not very noticeable). The second day is when I saw Chemiclean really going to work. The cyanobacteria was mostly gone and whatever was left was barely hanging onto the rocks. At the end of the 48 hours, I barely saw any of the cyanobacteria that once covered most of my live rock. I did the water change on the 48th hour, and on the third day, my tank was clean of cyanobacteria. This stuff really works great.

All in all, if you are having trouble with cyanobacteria, then I would definitely try Chemiclean.
