Onyx Sand is a specially fracted, stable porous gravel for the natural planted aquarium. Being carbonate rich, Onyx Sand provides an advantage to any plants able to utilize bicarbonates. Although ideally suited to planted aquaria, it may be used in any aquarium environment. Onyx Sand is most effective when used alone as an integral substrate bed, but it may be mixed with other gravels. Gravel modifiers such as laterite are not necessary. Onyx Sand is not chemically coated or treated but does have a slight buffering capacity that may raise pH by 0.1 - 0.5 pH units (depending on source water characteristics).

Brightwell Aquatics 2 fl. oz. Garlic Power Concentrated Garlic Supplement for Marine Fishes, 60 mL
Manufacturer: Deepwater Aquatics Distribution
Brand: Brightwell Aquatics
Brightwell Aquatics Garlic Power consists solely of the preserved extract of raw garlic. In aquaria, the use of garlic is often associated with improving the health of fishes, particularly in systems experiencing difficulty with parasites. Garlic has also been shown to motivate newly-added and/or finicky fishes to feed; this is accomplished by soaking food in a small amount of garlic extract for several minutes and then feeding, and the results are often very gratifying.
Brightwell Aquatics 17 fl. oz. Koralle-VM Vitamin and Mineral Supplement for Corals and Clams, 500 mL
Manufacturer: Deepwater Aquatics Distribution
Brand: Brightwell Aquatics
Overview Unique vitamin and minor and trace element complex for establishing and replacing substances important to marine invertebrates, including corals, clams, and their allies; these substances are particularly important to biological reactions. Does not contain minor or trace elements notexpressly known to be utilized by marine organismsor take place in chemical interactions. Vitamins are present in ratios found in the tissues of filter-feeding marine invertebrates. Minor and trace elements are present in natural seawater ratios. Composed of purified water and ultra-high purity materials. Formulated by a marine scientist.Technical BackgroundKoralle-VM provides a host of minor and trace elements found by oceanographers to exhibit non-conservative behavior in seawater (meaning that they are depleted by biological and chemical reactions taking place within the photic zone) and that are safe for human handling. Elements are present in natural seawater ratios (i.e. the ratios in which they are present in seawater). Since they are not depleted by biological nor chemical interactions, no minor or trace elements that are not expressly needed by aquatic organisms are present in this product; this includes unnecessary elements such as lithium, rubidium, and molybdenum. Additionally, a full-complement of vitamins are present in the same ratios found in the tissues of filter-feeding marine invertebrates, organisms that extract plankton from the surrounding water and gain their nutritional benefit, and which are in turn consumed by many reef inhabitants. This logical blend of vitamins and minerals is of benefit to all marine aquarium inhabitants.Of the detectable elements in seawater, 11 are minor elements and 52 are trace elements. Between the two groups, at least 13 elements appear to be expressly-required for the growth of primary producers such as algae, and an additional 18 are either incorporated into living tissue/skeletal material or undergo chemical interactio
â€¢ Complex of carbonate-bound, non-conservativemajor, minor, and trace elements in aragonite ratios,as well as marine-derived proteins and lipids in coraltissue ratios.â€¢ Simultaneously delivers appropriate inorganic andorganic nutrients required by stony corals, bothzooxanthellate and azooxanthellate soft corals,gorgonians, clams, tube worms, sponges, tunicates,and other suspension-feeding invertebrates forgrowth of both soft tissue and skeletal material.â€¢ Ideally fed at night when most corals extend theirtentacles for prey-capture.â€¢ Does not require refrigeration.â€¢ Formulated by a marine scientist.Liquid250-ml
Nitrate Profi-Test When there are insufficient areas of a tank which are deprived of oxygen (anaerobic zones) or denitrification is not taking place properly, nitrate will build up. This can also happen in an aquarium where the biological loading on the system is causing an imbalance e.g. if there is excessive livestock for the aquarium volume or over feeding is occurring. The build up of nitrate can result in unwanted algae growth and the slowing down of coral growth. The nitrate concentration in a reef aquarium should be lower than 1 mg/L, although fish only aquariums would usually have a higher concentration. Just as with nitrite, many nitrate test kits are prone to amine interference which can make the levels of nitrate appear much lower than they actually are. The Salifert test kit does not suffer from such interference and gives accurate and quick results with a total testing time of less than 3 minutes. The test kit's range goes from a very low to a very high nitrate concentration (approx. 0.2 - 100 mg/L as total nitrate). Sufficient for 50 tests. This test offers two ranges:Low range: 0.2 - 10 mg/L (ppm) as nitrate.Medium range: 2 - 100 mg/L (ppm) as nitrate.Clean test vial and scoop after use. Store this kit in a dry place.Warning!KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
