Aquavitro® seed™ will rapidly and safely establish the aquarium biofilter in freshwater and marine systems, thereby preventing the #1 cause of fish death: "new tank syndrome". seed™ is formulated specifically for the aquarium and contains a synergistic blend of aerobic, anaerobic, and facultative bacteria which facilitate the breakdown of waste organics, ammonia, nitrates and nitrites.
The bacteria used in competing products are inherently unstable. The conditions necessary for their growth and development fall into a very narrow range of temperatures, pH, organic loads, etc. When any of these parameters are not strictly within the proper range, the bacterial culture quickly crashes and dies. seed™ does not contain any of these short-lived bacteria. The species of bacteria in seed™ are a unique blend, specifically developed for hardiness and their ability to adapt to a wide variety of environmental conditions. The strains thrive in both fresh and saltwater.
Seed™ contains both nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria, a blend found in no other product. Additionally, seed™ contains facultative bacterial strains which are able to adapt to either aerobic or anaerobic conditions.
Shake well before use. Turn off UV/ozone. Use 5 mL for each 40 L (10 US gallons) on the first day with a new aquarium. Then use 5 mL for each 80 L (20 US gallons) daily for 7 days.
Fish and other aquatic species may be introduced at any time as long as dosage is maintained for 7 days. For optimum biofilter performance, use 5 mL for each 80 L (20 US gallons) once a month or with each water change and whenever introducing new fish or whenever medicating an aquarium.
Product shelf life is 4 years from date of manufacture.
The AP9X Mounting Arm is a sleek, low profile mounting option designed for the new Kessil AP9X Controllable LED Light. The AP9X Mounting Arm allows the fixture to be mounted with just a single arm, providing maximum light spread with minimum intrusion on tank aesthetics. The mounting arm also includes an integrated swivel joint, giving you the ability to easily adjust and orient your light to eliminate shadowing. The unit can be adjusted in height and from back to front (for 18" - 24" wide tanks) and features internal cable management to route power cords through the arm for a flawless finish.
The AP9X is also backwards-compatible with all AP700 mounting options, including the Hanging Kit and two standard Mounting Arms.
Seachem Reef Reactor Lg
Reef Reactor™ is a high-purity source of aragonite, which supplies all important elements for optimal ionic balance and robust coral growth and coloration in reef aquaria. It has a grain size of approximately 1-3 cm. (Reef Reactor™ Md is 0.5 - 1 cm). It is intended for use in calcium reactors where it is dissolved slowly with the addition of CO2. As it dissolves, it provides calcium, magnesium, strontium, potassium, and carbonates among other important elements for reef aquaria. It is excellent at increasing and stabilizing alkalinity, which also supports a stable pH and encourages the rapid formation of coral skeletal material. With high levels of both calcium and magnesium, it offers an excellent means of balanced supplementation for rapid growth and propagation of corals and calcareous animals in reef aquaria. It possesses the highest level of soluble potassium of all competing brands while exhibiting the lowest levels of both aluminum and phosphorus.
Rinse Reef Reactor™ prior to initial placement in your calcium reactor. The rate of water flow through the reactor in conjunction with the pH of the water inside the reactor will control the rate of media dissolution. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions furnished with the calcium reactor and adjust the rates of water flow and CO2 injection to attain the desired concentrations of calcium and alkalinity in the effluent.
Use Seachem’s Reef Status™: Magnesium and Reef Status™: Calcium test kits to measure alkalinity, calcium, and magnesium concentrations.
