The addition of lime water is another method to increase the calcium in saltwater aquariums. The calcium hydroxide is dissolved in a separate tank by means of the water jet of the metering pump in the osmotic regulator(s). The lime water is then released into the aquarium in small quantities in regular intervals. The calcium dispenser is fitted between the metering pump and the infeed hose. All TUNZE Osmolator, Osmomat and osmotic regulator sets can be used. The calcium dispenser can also be installed in every water storage tank. The dispenser tank should be topped up with calcium hydroxide every one to two weeks.
The calcium dispenser and the calcium automat can be combined to greater effect. An especially stable pH is achieved during the day as well as at night. An increase in performance can be achieved for a larger consumption.
Delivery condition: Reactor, calcium hydroxide fill, holding device and connections to Osmolator, suitable for up to approx. 500 l aquariums with stone corals.

"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.
