The JBL Test set PO4 sensitive -Phosphate- is designed fro measuring and routinely controling the phosphate content in saltwater and freshwater within the range of 0.05-1.8 mg/l (ppm). The compensation method developed specially by JBL allows precise and reliable results to be obtained even in moderately discoloured aquarium water e.g. caused by peat filters and disease treatment.
Through the high sensitivity of the JBL test PO4 sensitive the impending danger of excessive phosphate levels can be recognised at e very early stage and suitable preventative measures to be taken in good time. In the natural enviroment phosphate, a vital plant nutrient, only occurs in very low concentrations.
The average levels are about 0.01 mg/l in freshwater and about 0.07 mg/l in saltwater. In an aqaurium, the main sources of phosphate in the water are digestive processes of the fish and food residue. Under unfavourable circumstances phosphate levels can reach up to 100 times or more above the natural levels.
This inevitably leads to an explosive increase in undesirable algae. This danger can be identified by measuring the phosphate level in time using the JBL Phosphate Test set PO4 sensitive and appropriate remedial action can be taken. It is important to know that algae can store considerable aquantities of phosphate, enabling them to continue to grow even after the level of phosphate in the aquarium water has been reduced.
In a freswater aquarium, levels of up to 0.4 mg/l are acceptable. In marine aqaurium, the phosphate level should be as close as possible to the natural level.

Dennerle CO2 Night Cut-off Valve Comfort
For magnificent plant growth, DENNERLE recommends a CO2 content in the aquarium of approx. 20 mg/l.
As certain correlations apply between CO2 content, carbonate hardness (CH) and pH value, the CO2 content in the water can be calculated according to a simple procedure:
Measure the carbonate hardness of your aquarium water.
Read the pH value which corresponds to the desired CO2 content from the table. You should set this pH value +/- 0.1 by adjusting the number of bubbles accordingly. Example: Carbonate hardness 4 °d, recommended pH 6.8 +/- 0.1.
The procedure is even simpler with the DENNERLE CO2 long-term test Correct + pH.
$18.00Dymax Base Soil series decreases the hardness of the water and lower the pH level to the degree at which most aquatic plants can consume nutrients and comfortably grow. The soil granules maintain the shape and density underwater security good circulation of water oxygen through the substrate. With Dymax Base Soil, growing difficult plants become easier and it is ideal for fishes demanding soft water.
