The task of the oxydator is to continuously produce oxygen. Oxygen is essential for the survival of our aquarium inhabitants. Although it is also produced by the plants and brought in by gas exchange at the water surface, it can happen that the amount of oxygen is not sufficient. Especially at night, it tends to get crowded in well-planted aquariums - although the plants produce more oxygen in the light than they consume for their metabolic processes, in the dark they only consume and do not produce. Oxygen can also become scarce in the aquarium when it is warm. The water's ability to absorb oxygen decreases as the temperature increases. Especially in shrimp aquariums this can become critical - especially shrimp from stream biotopes like bee shrimp and tiger shrimp and their variants like taiwan shrimp / shadow shrimp need a lot of oxygen and do not tolerate a lack of oxygen well. Increased bacterial activity with high nutrient density can also cause oxygen deficiency. Bacteria oxidize nutrients and consume oxygen in the process, which is then no longer available to the other aquarium inhabitants.

A warning sign is when the shrimps or even the trumpet snails move to the upper areas of the aquarium - then they suffer from oxygen deficiency and try to move towards the water surface, because that is where the more oxygen-rich water layers are.

In addition to all the other measures such as feeding less, cooling the aquarium or moving the water surface more, an oxydator can introduce the decisive extra oxygen into the system. Here, with the help of a catalyst, hydrogen peroxide is broken down into oxygen and water.

An oxydator for the aquarium consists of several parts. First, it has a container for the hydrogen peroxide, which, by the way, you can also buy in our online store. Then you need to put one or two catalyst stones into the hydrogen peroxide. The container is then closed with a lid. If you look closely, you can already see the first oxygen beads forming on the catalysts.
The last and one of the most important components of the oxidizer is then the base made of special ceramics, which also has catalytic properties. The oxygen that forms in the container forces tiny amounts of hydrogen peroxide out through the lid. Catalysis also takes place at the ceramic base. There, the escaping hydrogen peroxide is decomposed into oxygen, active oxygen and water. The active oxygen is a free oxygen radical with an extremely high binding capacity. It binds to everything possible and thus oxidizes pollutants such as ammonia or nitrite, but it can also eliminate pesticides by oxidation and even destroy bacteria and algae spores. Of course, this happens mainly in the immediate vicinity of the oxidizer. If you want to extend the effect to the whole aquarium, you should place the oxydator in a place with a good flow.

One filling lasts depending on the temperature approx. 4-6 weeks. After that it is simply refilled. The amount of oxygen released by the Mini Oxydator can be regulated by placing one or two catalyst stones in the Oxydator.
