Nutrient coated sticks with added iron which often becomes insufficient in an aquarium over time. Aquatic plants such as Echinodorus and Cryptocoryne are two species of aquatic plants which absorb their necessary nutrients from their roots. Insufficient nutrients in the substrate sometimes causes whitening or other growth problems.
Iron Bottom is an easily applied fertilizer supplement that provides the necessary elements for the proper growth. In the solid form of sticks, it contains various nutrients and is coated with trace elements, particularly iron. Slowly dissolving sticks of Iron Bottom maintain a gentle and constant supply of nutrients, which is especially important for long term care and to avoid deficiency symptoms.
Long type is for layouts with larger plants or thick substrate.
Excellent for sustaining healthy long-term growth of plants species such as Echinodorus, Crytocoryne, and Blyxa that derive more nutrition from the substrate.
RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PLANT ROOTS AND BACTERIA WITHIN THE SUBSTRATE
Silt gathers around plant roots and provides a good medium for bacterial colonization. Proper functions of bacteria, through their nitrifying processes, change ammonia to nitrogen compounds which are then consumed by aquatic plants through their roots.
Oxygen- Sufficient supply of oxygen is vital for aerobic bacteria. Insufficient oxygen prompts the activity of anaerobic bacteria which produce toxic substances such as nitrous acid.
Nutrients in Power Sand- Nutrients contained in Power Sand are slowly dissolved and absorbed by plant roots.
Fertilizer in the substrate- Organic matter in Power Sand or other bottom fertilizers such as Multi Bottom or Iron Bottom, can be absorbed by aquatic plants, only when they are broken down to inorganic matter by bacteria.
Fertile peat- Works effectively to stimulate the establishment of association between bacteria and aquatic plants.
The HydroTote™ is a collapsible jug that holds up to 20 L (5 gallons) in the new size. It's perfect for customers that get their saltwater, RO water, or DI water at their local fish store. When not in use, it easily folds up to take up less space. It pours easily and can withstand a drop of up to 3 meters while full.
Dealers asked for it, and Seachem delivered. HydroTote™ is the ideal space saving alternative for shops carrying current 5 gallon hard jugs that simply consume too much space in the home, office, or pet store.
20 L (5 US gallons)
Safe™ is the complete and concentrated dry conditioner for both fresh and salt water. Safe™ removes chlorine, chloramine and ammonia. Safe™ converts ammonia into a safe, non-toxic form that is readily removed by the tank’s biofilter. Safe™ may be used during tank cycling to alleviate ammonia/nitrite toxicity. Safe™ detoxifies nitrite and nitrate, allowing the biofilter to more efficiently remove them. Safe™ is non-acidic and will not impact pH. Safe™ will not overactivate skimmers. Use at start-up and whenever adding or replacing water.
Use 1.25 g (1/4 tsp.) for every 1,250 L (300 US gallons) as needed to reduce chlorine and chloramine or use 1.25 g (1/4 tsp.) for every 300 L (75 US gallons) for ammonia. For precise dosing, use the Seachem Digital Spoon Scale.
May be added to aquarium directly, but better if added to new water first. If adding directly to aquarium, base dose on aquarium volume. For exceptionally high chloramine concentrations, a double dose may be used safely. To detoxify nitrite and nitrate in an emergency, up to 4 times normal dose may be used. If temperature is > 30 °C (86 °F) and chlorine or ammonia levels are low, use a half dose.
