Blyxa (bly-za) aubertii is a true aquatic plant found throughout Southeastern Asia, Africa, Japan and Australia. It is found in a wide variety of habitats from rice paddies to swiftly-flowing streams. Although it has been in the hobby for quite some time, it has inexplicably not become very commonly encountered. At present, it is usually only available through trade or through specialty retailers. Blyxa echinosperma was previously considered a species unto its own but is now recognized as a variety of B. aubertii.
Growing B. aubertii is not especially difficult. While it does appreciate high light the conditions found in ‘high tech’ tanks, it is rather forgiving and not prone to any particular deficiencies. As long as it is given abundant carbon dioxide and subjected to a well-balanced fertilization program, it should do well. When given an open and unobstructed location along with a great deal of iron, B. aubertii can take on a rather strong maroon coloration. One thing that should be kept in mind is that this species is somewhat delicate and should not be subjected to overly strong currents or boisterous fauna. Otherwise, it can become rather tattered.

"The Whale pump" by Roman J., McCarthy JJ (2010) :
A study in 2010 has attributed to whales a positive influence on the productivity of ocean fisheries, in what has been termed a "whale pump."
Whales carry nutrients such as nitrogen from the depths back to the surface. This functions as an upward biological pump, reversing the assumption of some scientists that whales accelerate the loss of nutrients to the bottom.
They note that this nitrogen input in the Gulf of Maine is "more than the input of all rivers combined," some 23,000 metric tons each year.

A liquid high concentrate of non-toxic bacteria (40 million bacteria per ml) carefully selected for their capacity in breaking down organic matter and for transforming ammonia in aquariums. This product can be used in new or existing fresh and saltwater aquariums to transform highly toxic ammonia into nitrites and nitrites into nitrates. NITRIDAC actually causes the rapid degeneration of organic compounds reducing the build up of sediment or mud, restores aquarium walls and beds preventing the formation and growth of algae and also prevents an increase in nitrites.
