Vitamins in aquaristics
Many animal losses in the aquarium are attributed to all types of diseases, although their actual cause is due to avitaminosis. Aquarium fish are normally provided with sufficient nutrients, such as carbohydrates, fats and proteins in their food. This alone is not sufficient, there is normally a lack of sufficient vitamins, such as vital biochemical active substances, which ensure normal development of the fish and regular organ functions. Vitamins cannot be built-up by the organism but have to be supplied to it with the food if vitamin deficiency diseases (avitaminosis) are to be avoided. Reliable protection against high loss avitaminosis can be ensured by regularly adding hw multivit to the food. hw multivit contains a balanced amount of all necessary vitamins.
With the application of hw® multivit the reproductive capacity and fertility is noticeably increased, resulting in a higher number of healthy hatching fish larvae. By mainly use of frosted or freeze-dried fish food, it is highly recommended to use hw® multivit as additional vitamination to compensate the loose of vitamins during the freezing or freeze-drying process of the fish food.
The application of hw® multivit has been overall effective when it comes to the breeding of very delicate and sensitive fish larvae, lowering the mortality caused by vitamin deficiency.
hw® multivit encourages the good health, color and fertility of all ornamental fish, strengthens the natural power of resistance to disease and converts vitamin-deficient dry food into high-quality vital food.
Before feeding the dried or frozen food just add a few drops of hw® multivit on the food. Dried food (like little shrimps, mollusc flesh, etc.) should be moistened (approx for 5-10 Minutes) only to the grade that the applied hw® multivit would be nearly completely absorbed by the food.
Frozen food like pieces of shrimps, mollusc, mosquito larvae, freshwater shrimps, etc.) should be defrosted and shortly rinsed with clean tap water. After this you can proceed in same way like with dried food. Be aware that the frozen food will only absorb smaller quantities of hw® multivit. To improve the absorption you can let rest the so prepared food in your refrigerator for about 30 Minutes (max. 2 h).
hw® multivit encourages the good health, color and spawn of all ornamental fish, strengthens the natural power of resistance to disease and converts vitamin-deficient dry food into high-quality vital food.
Important: Shake bottle well before and between applications!
hw® multivit contains, beside other components, the following Vitamins and Vitamins forms:
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin B1
- Vitamin B2
- Vitamin B12
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D3
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin H
Description of the main components:
- Alpha tocopherol:
Vitamin E. Acts as an antioxidant; protects the fatty acids, retinol and enzymes against oxidation; also influences the absorption of cyanocobalamin and nuclein metabolism; antisterility vitamin.
- Ascorbic acid:
Vitamin C. Serves for the formation and maintenance of the collagen level; reducer in tyrosine metabolism; protects the organism against a deficiency of other vitamins, also encourages adrenalinogenesis.
Vitamin B12. Coenzyme, growth factor; encourages lipid and carbohydrate metabolism as well as the formation of blood.
Vitamin H. Growth factor, among other tings for nanoplankton; also synthesised in plants. Biotin is a coenzyme for CO2 fixation and transcarboxylation in the presence and involvement of magnesium ions.
Amino-acetic acid. Cell protein building substance; for blood pigment synthesis.
Amino-isocaproic acid. Cell protein building substance.
Constituent of every living cell; encourages cation transport through the cell membrane and stimulation of the nerves. Growth factor for numerous types of animal cell.
Constituent of the cell building substance NADP (nicotineamide-adenine dinucleotide). Particularly important for hydrogen transport in biological oxidation.
Vitamin A. Indispensable as a pigment for the retina, for reproductiveness, contributes to the stability of the lipoprotein membrane of the cell and subcellular particles.
Vitamin B1. Coenzyme function for degradation of carbohydrates.
Serves as a transmitter substance for the nerve ends.
Thyroid hormone; encourages pigment formation.
