Establishes Proper K+, Mg2+ & Ca2+ in purified & Soft Water for all Planted Aquaria
Establishes an optimal mineral balance in water that has been purified or is exceedingly-soft for all freshwater planted aquaria, as well as for biotope aquaria housing fishes indigenous to forested and/or riverine habitats.
Supplies potassium, magnesium, and calcium, elements which are vital to the overall health of aquatic plants, in beneficial ratios. Has higher solubility than competing supplements.
May be used to establish beneficial water parameters in aquaria filled with purified water, to replenish depleted mineral concentrations in aquaria that rarely receive a water change, and to re-establish mineral concentrations following large water changes.
Provides trace chloride, a valuable plant nutrient, in a beneficial concentration.
Formulated utilizing extensive research on aquatic plant nutrient requirements.
Fishes and aquatic plants and invertebrates require that specific elements be present in the water to aid with osmotic balance and ensure proper biochemical function, contributing to overall long-term health and survival. Florin Delta GH+ fulfills this requirement with a formulation based on data compiled from up-to-date aquatic research.
Instructions and Guidelines
Consult a reference book listing the water chemistry requirements of the plants and/or fishes being maintained to determine the optimal range of GH and/or TDS. Remember to adjust alkalinity (KH or carbonate hardness), pH, and temperature of the water prior to adding it into an aquarium housing live organisms. Determine GH and/or TDS in the aquarium prior to treating purified water with Florin Delta GH+, then follow directions on opposite panel accordingly. Do not add this product directly to an established aquarium without first diluting in water as directed.
While Florin Delta GH+ provides the basis of good water chemistry for planted aquaria, addition of specific macro- and micronutrients may be required as a result of their absence from this formulation and/or enhanced rates of bio-uptake by aquatic flora and fauna. Brightwell Aquatics FlorinMulti, Florin-K, Florin-Fe, FlorinAxis, and FlorinGro may be employed to address these requirements. Florin Delta KH+ increases alkalinity (carbonate hardness).
When preparing water for a water change: For every 5 US-gallons of water to be changed, dissolve 2 grams of Florin Delta GH+ in purified water or tap water and mix thoroughly to dissolve. Assuming a starting GH and TDS of 0, this will result in an increase of ~1.9 dGH and ~104 ppm, respectively. When employed at this dosing rate, 500 g treats 1,250 US-gallons (4,732 L). See Advanced Instructions to adjust strength of solution.
When preparing water for a new planted aquarium set up: Always adjust the water chemistry prior to adding live organisms to the aquarium. If placing the plants into the substrate prior to completely filling the aquarium, adjust the GH, KH, pH, and temperature of the water in a separate vessel (e.g. in a large, clean pail or vat) before adding it to the aquarium. Do not add a large volume of purified water to the aquarium and then attempt to adjust the water chemistry afterwards, as this will be stressful to the plants. Do not use when replacing water lost to evaporation.
Use Advanced Instructions below to calculate the amount of Florin Delta GH+ that will be required to bring about the desired change in GH or TDS to the volume of water to be used.
Advanced Instructions: Each gram of Florin Delta GH+ will increase the GH and TDS in 1 US-gallon of water by 4.7 dGH and 260 ppm, respectively. To obtain a specific GH and/or TDS value, divide the desired change in GH by 4.7 (or if TDS is preferred, divide the desired change in TDS by 260), then multiply this number by the net volume of water (in gallons) in the aquarium. Example: if the GH in 15 US-gallons is to be increased by 5 dGH, then add 16 g Florin Delta GH+ (5 ÷ 4.7 = 1.06 g per gallon; 1.06 g per gallon x 15 gallons = 16 g).
Caution: May cause eye or skin irritation. If in eyes, flush with water for 15 minutes, get medical attention. If on skin, wash thoroughly with water. Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption.
Proprietary multivalent cation blend with appropriate anion ratios and trace minerals to provide GH to replicate natural waters
The Fluval FX series stands for high-performance and reliability. Made in Italy, the FX4 canister filter is a compact counterpart of the FX6. FX4 is suitable for those upgrading from Fluval 406. Fluval FX4 is recommended for both freshwater and saltwater aquariums up to 1000 L (250 US Gal).
Easy to Use & Maintain
$19.30Kent Zoe is a superior vitamin complex for Marine Fish, Invertebrates, and desirable algae. (Zoe does not contain phosphates as most competing vitamin supplements do, and will not cause unsightly algae growth!) It contains aquaculture grade vitamins, meaning that they are still active after one year in your aquarium! It is unique because it also contains natural minerals from spirulina and kelp sources. Competing products are preserved with glycerin, which is an alcohol and requires 50% concentration to preserve. Zoe is properly preserved, using less than ½% preservatives, yet has a 4 year shelf life with no refrigeration. Just smell the difference!
Features & Benefits
GENTLY MIXES YOUR CALCIUM HYDROXIDE
Kalk Stirrer (Nilsen Reactor) carries a high torque, low RPM and low voltage motor, that not only gently mixes your calcium hydroxide (kalkwasser), it is also one of the quietest in the market.
This method is not only ideal but is also the safest way of introducing the freshest kalkwasser to a reef system. Our Kalk Stirrer is designed to keep the undissolved particles at the bottom of the reactor chamber while always leaving the clear, highly saturated kalkwasser liquid at the top. Adding kalk powder is easy with just a few twists of the large thumb screws releasing the seal-tight lid for quick and easy refills.
NO NEED FOR PESKY POWERHEADS
With the built in Power Head, matched to the exact specification of our Kalkwasser Reactor, there is no need for frequent cleaning, and no more risky dosing with large vats of lime water which take up valuable space. There is no need for premixing or worry about clogging when using our innovative and efficient Kalk Stirrer (Nilsen Reactor) which are extremely easy to use and salt-water safe, making them simply the most economical and best kalk reactor in the market.
* Please do not run the Kalk Stirrer unit continuously.
For tanks up to 400L, maximum flow rate 880L/H, maximum head height 0.8m.

Our Bio Churn reactors are for those that demand the ultimate control over your Bio pellets solid carbon dosing. The superior “Churn” Style” design easily fluidizes large amounts of bio pellet media without blasting it with outrageous flow just to fluidize the media, which is a commonly found on other Bio Pellet reactors in the market today.
The unique motion these innovative reactors produce allow for much greater suspension of the media in a cyclone “churn” style motion created with our patent pending churn plate. Equipped with our very own Aquatrance recirculation pumps which features independent flow valves, so the user can independently control the flow of media within the reactor.
Our Bio Churn Reactors come in four Series including the in-sump, External/Recirculating and the Commercial line. For the ultimate control of PO4 & NO3 look no further than the Bio Churn.
