Trace elements for the freshwater aquarium
Trace element solution for fresh water supplies the aquarium water with all the positive trace elements that are consumed by metabolic processes.
In comparation to the natural environment (rivers and lakes) where trace elements are available in abundancy the animals and plants in a closed aquarium system quickly consumes the relatively small amount of available trace elements. This is easily to understand when you simply compare the water volume per fish or plant in a aquarium to the water volume of a lake or river.
Therefore, in the closed aquarium system the pool of trace elements has to be “refilled” frequently to avoid well-known deficiency symptoms like:
- disturbed well-being and behavior of fishes
- pathological short stature
- low and/or faulty pigment formation
hw-tracevit contains all vital trace elements as present in natural aquatic environment and constantly consumed by metabolic processes in a closed aquarium system.
Regularly added to the aquarium water, they reliably prevent the usual upraising deficiency symptoms.
As a maintenance and maintenance dose, add 5 ml of hw-tracevit per 100 liters of aquarium water every 7 days. In the case of a very high livestock with aquatic plants, like in plant dominated aquarium, the dosage can be increased to up to 10 ml hw-tracevit per 100 liters of aquarium water.
Follow-up dosing to be carried out when changing water
When carrying out a water changes, proceed with the replacement water in the same way as with the regular dosing. Dose 5 ml hw-tracevit per 100 liters of replaced or replacement water. When using demineralized water or water from a reverse osmosis system, it is advisable to increase the dosage to 10 ml hw-tracevit per 100 liters of replaced water.
When using demineralized water or water from a reverse osmosis, the additional use of hw-ReMineral is recommended.
