With water conditioner you can make dangerous chlorine and chloramine, which is also added unannounced by the waterworks for disinfection of the pipes, as well as harmful heavy metals such as copper permanently harmless for your aquarium inhabitants. Application takes place with new aquariums and with the water change according to manufacturer recommendation on the appropriate quantity fresh water.
Bacteria and filter care products
To ensure that pollutants such as ammonia / ammonium and nitrite do not stand a chance, a good accumulation of beneficial bacteria is important. These are substrate-bound and, depending on the species, are found in oxygen-rich and oxygen-poor areas in the substrate, on plants and furnishings, and in the filter. Recommended in new aquariums, after filter cleaning, major interventions as well as after treatments with medications and anti-algae agents.
Liquid filter medium, water clarifier and pollutant remover
Fine turbidities, natural and chemical discolorations, proteins, unpleasant odors, drug residues, heavy metals and other pollutants in water are naturally attracted and bound by microfine minerals similar to magnets. This results in clean, clear water without the use of chemicals. The aquarium is visibly revitalized and the well-being of the inhabitants is significantly enhanced. Even minor injuries such as abrasions, bites and the like heal much faster. The application takes place in the weekly rhythm preventively and as required. The whitish cloudiness that occurs during use is completely normal and completely harmless and disappears after a few hours to about a day, depending on the load on the aquarium water.
Tip: The use of a microfiber fleece in the filter helps with particle turbidity. For general use, we recommend the use of a layer of filter wadding in the filter in the first place, which is replaced regularly, thus permanently removing flocculated, collected substances from the aquarium circuit.
Water additives for tropical aquarium water
Water additives based on extracts from the well-known sea almond tree, from alder cones, oak bark, peat and the like offer significant advantages in many respects. So-called black water fish such as various tetras, cichlids, labyrinth fish and so on depend on near-natural water conditions due to humic acids and tannins, and other soft water inhabitants - including many shrimp species - also benefit from them. With regular use, the ingredients have a vitalizing effect, reduce stress, strengthen the mucous membrane, increase spawning activity, increase the body's own defenses, the well-being and hatching rate of clutches, facilitate the acclimation of black and soft water inhabitants, reduce germ density and filter out algae-promoting light components.
However, these extracts also have a positive healing effect on various diseases such as bacterial infections, fin rot, fungal infections, ecto- and endoparasites, stomach and intestinal diseases, mucous membrane damage, goggle eyes, gill worms and much more, as well as on bite wounds and injuries.
We also recommend our natural products, which are not only nutritional supplements, but also have a positive effect on the gastrointestinal tract.
Minerals, trace elements and vitamins
For a healthy and long life, strong defenses, excellent condition, intense colors in fish and co. as well as for smooth moulting in shrimp and crayfish, as well as for a strong shell and housing structure in all invertebrates, a targeted supply of minerals, trace elements, vitamins and vital substances is very beneficial. These are often present in the aquarium only in small quantities or are missing completely, are consumed quickly and, in addition, vitamins are not stable for long. The added vitamins in feeds slowly disappear after opening, which means that the supply is no longer sufficient after just a few weeks. Therefore, we recommend a regular supply and not only for already puny or sick animals.
Water lowering and hardening additives
In order to raise or lower the water hardness and / or pH value as required, various water additives such as GH+, GH/KH+, KH+, pH Minus or pH Plus are available. With them you can easily adjust and stabilize the necessary water values. We recommend to make changes only slowly, so that the stock can get used to it and to control the values regularly by water tests, furthermore please always follow the application and dosage recommendations of the manufacturers.
If your tap water is well contaminated with pollutants, if your water values deviate enormously from what your charges need or if you want to use absolutely pure water, we can always recommend our offered osmosis systems in combination with appropriate mineral salts.
