CARBON - THE BASIS OF LIFE
Carbon (carbon dioxide) is the most important nutrient for aquarium plants. About 40% of the plant dry matter consists of it, which, however, is in short supply in the aquarium. The result: poor plant growth. And when plants grow poorly, the unloved algae get their chance.
Carbo Elixier Bio quickly and effectively supplies all aquarium plants with readily available carbon.
All plants, from mosses to echinodors and cryptocorynes to fast-growing stem plants, become fuller and stronger. The leaves become significantly larger and more colorful. The success is already visible after a few weeks - pay attention to the shoot tips and young leaves.
The lush, healthy growth increases the plants' competitive power against algae. Unwanted algae will be pushed back as a result. The entire aquarium appears healthier, greener and more beautiful.
THIS IS HOW CARBO ELIXIER BIO WORKS
The basis of plant metabolism is photosynthesis. In this biochemical process, solar energy is "captured" and stored in energy-rich carbon compounds. One such energy-rich compound is sugar. These compounds are used by the plant (a) as a universal source of energy or (b) to produce other compounds. To stay with the sugar example: The plant can "re-burn" the sugar in its cells and use the released energy to drive other metabolic processes. Or it can process the sugar into cellulose, for example. Cellulose, also known as wood pulp, is the substance that gives trees their strength and consists of nothing other than long sugar chains.
How can the plant convert substances into each other?
The central hub in plant metabolism is the so-called citric acid cycle. The citric acid cycle is like a factory. Here, a wide variety of substances are introduced in order to produce the required substances. With the help of this metabolic pathway, the plant can produce all vital carbon compounds itself: Carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, secondary plant substances, etc.
And this is where Carbo Elixir Bio comes into play. The product contains selected active ingredients that are also found in plant metabolism in this or a similar form. The active substances are absorbed by the plant and used in the cells as building material for the construction of higher compounds or used as a source of energy. This additional supply enables the plant to grow faster and more vigorously.
In addition, there is another positive effect: all organic active substances based on carbon are bacterially degradable, because the numerous filter bacteria in the aquarium feed on them. In the end, only carbon dioxide (CO2) and water remain.
Carbo Elixier Bio therefore supplies the plants with vital carbon via 2 paths.
The effect is already visible after a few weeks of regular use: the plants grow faster, lusher and healthier, algae are pushed back.
