hw hydrokoll

from 13,79 

Broad-spectrum care for seawater

hw hydrokoll protects fish and corals from possible infections in mucosal and tissue injuries. Mitigates irritation effects on tissue injuries and has a stress-reducing effect. The acclimatization period of new fish and the acclimatization to changed care conditions are much less problematic. hw hydrokoll replaces the natural protective colloids present in natural seawater and counteracts irritation as well as poisoning, which can be caused by heavy metals, phenols and bacterial toxins often found in tap water.

Water conditioner for marine reed aquarium

hw® hydrokoll is a combination of organic colloids, similar like present in natural marine water, for the biological treatment and stabilization of artificial prepared marine water.
It replaces the protective colloids contained in natural sea water and counteracts intoxication caused by heavy metals, phenols and bacterial toxins.

These protective colloids, contained in hw® hydrokoll, are not contained in freshly prepared artificial sea water and can only form very slowly in an aquarium filled with this water.
The consequence is in some occasions a high loss of otherwise completely healthy animals; one of the most frequent causes of initial losses in newly prepared aquariums. The losses occurring when changing the aquarium water are often due to a related reduction of the contained protective colloids.

  • hw® hydrokoll protects fishes and corals against possible infections when the mucous membrane of the fish skin is injured or the organic tissue of the corals has been damaged.
  • hw® hydrokoll also acts as stress reducer and shortens the „setting-in-phase“ of new animals in the aquarium and the time the animals need getting accustomed to the new environmental conditions.
  • hw® hydrokoll renders heavy metals, phenols, bacterial toxins, coloring matter and fats detectable for the protein skimmer and greatly increases its efficiency.
  • hw® hydrokoll also acts as an optimal protection and stress reliever for all maritime life forms when these have to be transported or placed in another aquarium.
  • hw® hydrokoll provides the easily injured mucous membranes with an additional protection, which helps to minimize the otherwise not inconsiderable risk of injuries and infections.

Recommendation of use / Dosing instructions:

These protective colloids, contained in hw® hydrokoll, are not contained in freshly prepared artificial sea water and can only form very slowly in an aquarium filled with this water.
The consequence is in some occasions a high loss of otherwise completely healthy animals; one of the most frequent causes of initial losses in newly prepared aquariums.  The losses occurring when changing the aquarium water are often due to a related reduction of the contained protective colloids.

hw® hydrokoll renders heavy metals, phenols, bacterial toxins, coloring matter and fats detectable for the protein skimmer and greatly increases its efficiency.

After the addition of hw® hydrokoll, an increased activity of the protein skimmer can be expected.  This increased foam formation is unavoidable, since only on this way the bonded contaminants can be captured by the protein skimmer and removed from the aquarium water. Other products on the market use a simply encapsulation of contaminants without being able to remove them from the aquarium water. Therefore they remain in the water and can be released under unfavorable conditions .

Dosing recommendation:

When first time added to the aquarium a dosing of 5 ml hw® hydrokoll per every 10 liters of aquarium water is recommended (10 Liters = 2,64 US gal). When the live stock consist mostly of delicate marine organisms like invertebrates and corals, a dosing of 2 ml per 10 Liters of aquarium water every 14 days should be maintained.

Important: After dosing hw® hydrokoll the protein skimmer must be observed and regulated down if necessary for the next 24-48 hours. Otherwise the skimmer cup of the protein skimmer can totally overflow do to the enhanced foaming ability.
