AquaVitro Mineralize™

aquavitro-mineralizetrade-874
  • Blend of divalent salts designed to restore or increase general hardness.
  • Standard dose raises GH by 1 meq/L (2.8 dGH)

Description: General hardness is the divalent metal cation content of the water. In most water this is comprised primarily of calcium and magnesium. Soft water has a low concentration of dissolved divalent cations, hard water a high concentration.

The native environment of some plants (Cryptocoryne, Aponogeton, etc.) is soft, whereas others (Sagittaria subulata, Riccia fluitans, etc.) are more acclimated to hard water. In order to replicate these environments it may be necessary to adjust hardness.

mineralize™ is a blend of divalent salts designed to restore or increase general hardness.

Directions: To raise mineral content/general hardness (GH) by 1 meq/L (2.8dH), use one inner capful (7 mL) for every 56 litres when setting up an aquarium or when making water changes (add to new water). Thereafter, use once a week (or as needed). This dose raises GH by 1 meq/L (2.8 dGH). Target a lower general hardness for soft water, a higher value for hard water. Target a lower general hardness for soft water, a higher value for hard water.

Note: The aquavitro cap offers multiple dosing solutions depending on the size of your system. Each inner cap thread is approximately 2 ml. The inner cap contains 7 ml, while the outer ring contains 28 ml (35 ml when both are filled to the level of the inner cap.) When filled to the top, the cap contains 49 ml.

AquaVitro Activate™

aquavitro-activatetrade-558
  • A concentrated (6,000 mg/L P) phosphorus source
  • Activates vital chemical reactions within plants
  • Enhances and accelerates the growth of aquatic plants without enhancing algae growth
  • Source of potassium

Description: Phosphorus is one of the three macro nutrients (NPK) required by plants. It is a component of ATP, NADP, nucleic acids and membrane phospholipids. Phosphorus is mobile in plants; this means that the plants divert these nutrients from older leaves to newer leaves. Thus, deficiency symptoms appear in older leaves first. Deficiency symptoms include dark, dull, or discoloured leaves. activate™ is a concentrated (6,000 mg/L P) phosphorus source. When used as directed, activate™ will enhance and accelerate the growth of aquatic plants without enhancing algae growth. For maximum benefit, use with synthesis™. activate™ is made with potassium salts of various phosphates, and is therefore a source of potassium as well. It contains 8,800 mg/L of potassium.

Sizes: 150 ml, 300 ml, 1 L

AquaVitro Propel™

aquavitro-propeltrade-852
  • A concentrated (10,000 mg/L) source of ferrous iron
  • Propels plant growth
  • Mixture of readily available and time-released iron
  • converts existing ferric iron into ferrous form

Description: Iron is immobile in plants; this means that plants cannot deliver iron from older leaves to new ones. Therefore, deficiency symptoms appear first on new or young leaves. Because plants use iron to produce chlorophyll, a lack of iron results in chlorosis, or yellowing, of the younger leaves. Stems may also appear short and slender. If the deficiency is severe and prolonged, each new leaf emerges lighter in colour than the preceding leaf.

propel™ is a concentrated (10,000 mg/L) source of ferrous iron. This ferrous iron is a mixture of readily available and time-released iron.

If iron is provided in the ferric form (Fe3+) then it must be reduced by the plant to the ferrous form (Fe2+) before it can be utilised. This process of conversion (known as reduction) requires the plant to expend physiological energy. propel™ provides iron already in the ferrous form thus enhancing iron utilisation. In addition, propel™ contains a reducing agent that helps convert any iron present (such as iron from substrate) into the ferrous form.

Directions: Use one inner capful (7 ml) per 280 litres of water three times per week, or as needed to maintain about 0.10 mg/L iron.

Note: The aquavitro cap offers multiple dosing solutions depending on the size of your system. Each inner cap thread is approximately 2 ml. The inner cap contains 7 ml, while the outer ring contains 28 ml (35 ml when both are filled to the level of the inner cap.) When filled to the top, the cap contains 49 ml.

Sizes: 150 ml, 300 ml, 1 L

AquaVitro Carbonate™

aquavitro-carbonatetrade-345
  • raises carbonate hardness (KH)
  • increases potassium
  • 2000 meq/L (5600 dKH)

Description: Carbonate hardness, (KH), is a measure of the bicarbonate & carbonate content of the water. Carbonate hardness contributes to pH stability and can also act as a CO2 backup reserve if CO2 levels fall too low.

carbonate™ is derived from potassium bicarbonate. It increases both carbonate hardness and potassium. The concentration of carbonate™ is 2000 meq/L (5600 dKH). In addition, it contains 78,300 mg/L potassium.

Directions: Add 49 ml (one full cap) to 95 litres of water once a week (or as needed). This dose raises carbonate hardness by 1 meq/L (2.8 dKH). For unbuffered water or in the absence of CO2 injection, use 1/4 to 1/2 dose to avoid impacting pH.

Plant preferences vary, but a good rule of thumb is about 1-2 meq/L (3-6 dKH). This dose increases potassium by 40 mg/L.

Note: The aquavitro cap offers multiple dosing solutions depending on the size of your system. Each inner cap thread is approximately 2 ml. The inner cap contains 7 ml, while the outer ring contains 28 ml (35 ml when both are filled to the level of the inner cap.) When filled to the top, the cap contains 49 ml.

Sizes: 150 ml, 300 ml, 1 L

AquaVitro Synthesis™

aquavitro-synthesistrade-750
  • a concentrated (32,000 mg/L N) nitrogen source
  • synthesis of ammoniacal, nitrate, and organic nitrogen
  • use with activate™ to provide nitrogen and phosphorus in a 5:1 N:P ratio

Description: Nitrogen is one of the three macro nutrients (NPK) required by plants. It is a component of proteins and nucleic acids. Nitrogen is mobile in plants. This means the plants divert these nutrients from older leaves to new leaves. Thus, deficiency symptoms appear in older leaves first. Nitrogen deficiency symptoms include chlorosis; slow growth; and small, stunted plants with large root systems.

Nitrogen comes in a variety of forms (nitrate, ammoniacal, urea). While plants can use all three forms the form that is preferred varies by species. Thus nitrogen supplements derived solely from just one form (nitrates) will not be as effective as a supplement that provides all three forms.

synthesis™ is a concentrated (32,000 mg/L N) nitrogen source. synthesis™ is unique in that it provides nitrogen in all three forms. Approximately 50% of the nitrogen in synthesis™ is derived from an organic source (urea), while the remaining nitrogen splits at about 25% each from nitrate and ammoniacal sources.

Directions: Use one inner capful (7 ml) per 950 Litres twice a week (or as needed). This dose increases total nitrogen by 0.24 mg/L. This is the same amount of nitrogen that would be present if all nitrogen were present in the nitrate form at 1 mg/L. Because not all nitrogen is in the nitrate form, you will measure a 0.25 mg/L nitrate increase immediately after dosing.

Note: For smaller dosing, use the included pipette. Filled to the base of the bulb, the pipette holds 1 ml.

The aquavitro cap offers multiple dosing solutions depending on the size of your system. Each inner cap thread is approximately 2 ml. The inner cap contains 7 ml, while the outer ring contains 28 ml (35 ml when both are filled to the level of the inner cap.) When filled to the top, the cap contains 49 ml.

Sizes: 150 ml, 300 ml, 1 L

AquaVitro Premier™

aquavitro-premiertrade-761
  • Conditioner specifically designed for the planted aquarium
  • Removes chlorine and chloramines
  • Raises potassium

Description: premier™ is a conditioner specifically designed for the planted aquarium. It removes chlorine and chloramines while adding potassium. premier™ is non-acidic and will not impact pH. Use at start-up and whenever adding or replacing water.

premier™ is a concentrated solution of potassium thiosulfate which removes both chlorine and chloramines. Although a thiosulfate-based conditioner is not recommended for saltwater aquaria because of the ammonia produced when it reacts with chloramines, it is perfect for the planted aquarium. The ammonia produced from chloramine by premier™ is predominantly in the ammonium form, and is thus rapidly scavenged by plants*. It also serves as a minor source of potassium.

Directions: Use one inner capful (7 ml) of premier™ for every 265 litres of water. premier™ may be added to the aquarium directly, but it is best if added to new water first. If adding directly to aquarium, base dose on aquarium volume. For exceptionally high chloramines concentrations, a double dose may be used.

Note: The aquavitro cap offers multiple dosing solutions depending on the size of your system. Each inner cap thread is approximately 2 ml. The inner cap contains 7 ml, while the outer ring contains 28 ml (35 mL when both are filled to the level of the inner cap.) When filled to the top, the cap contains 49 ml.

Sizes: 150 ml, 300 ml, 1 L
