Kent Lugol`s Solution provides a strong source of free iodine and iodide to reef inhabitants and macroalgae. Although it's very effective when used with stony corals, systems containing xenia and soft corals are particularly benefited by the use of Lugol's Solution.
Used as a dip for stony and soft or leather corals, Lugol's will help rid the animals of unwanted parasites and harmful bacteria. This product helps foster improved coloration and prevents bleaching of all corals due to changes in light intensity, and enhances coral polyp expansion. Kent Lugol`s Solution provides a key nutrient for marine invertebrates and fishes, and contains no phosphate, nitrate, gluconate, or other sugars.
Considerations for use:
Kent Lugol`s Solution is a very strong source of iodine, and must be dosed carefully, according to the directions. Lugol`s Solution is very useful for xenia, soft and stony corals, and other polyp cnidarians. This product is best applied to an aquarium by adding it to a strong current of water where it can be circulated into the aquarium over a prolonged period of time. Lugol`s Solution can also be diluted at a ratio of 1 drop to 4 oz. aquarium water in a separate cup and targeted directly up-current from xenia colonies or soft corals, but take care when using this method (not all corals will react the same; stony corals do not generally appreciate this target method of applying Lugol`s).
The benefits of using Lugol`s Solution with Concentrated Iodine Supplement and Tech I are that invertebrates are provided with continuous sources of iodine and iodide. When using Lugol`s Solution in conjunction with Concentrated Iodine Supplement, administer Concentrated Iodine at - the recommended dosage, and do not dose both products on the same day. When using Lugol`s Solution in conjunction with Tech I, administer either product at - the recommended dosage and allow 3-4 days between dosing Lugol`s and Tech I.
If you suspect that you have overdosed the aquarium with Lugol's Solution, add 1 drop of Kent Chlorinex or Ammonia Detox per 2 drops of Lugol's that was overdosed, to the aquarium. Do not dose Lugol's Solution within 24 hours of treating an aquarium with either Chlorinex or Ammonia Detox.

"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.

Compound granulated food for pond fish particularly suitable for Koi fish, it is enriched with ingredients that enhance the splendid colour of this kind of fish.
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.
