Some photos from the aquarium of Wilm Thiere from Braunsdorf

Wilm Thiere has always tried to recreate Amano's aquariums.

After failures in the form of algae infestations, deficiency symptoms and stunted growth with products from other companies (and he had been through almost everything), he was about to give up everything.

His comment

Honestly, if you waste your money on some of the fertilisers available in specialist shops, it's your own fault if you're not satisfied with the results. I have repeatedly tried to recreate Amano aquariums. After failures in the form of algae plagues, deficiency symptoms and stunted growth with products from other companies (and I've tried almost everything), I was on the verge of giving up. But after I started using this complete fertiliser series, I was in for an absolute surprise. I was able to test the fertiliser extensively in a 120 cm tank and I think I can say that it is the best and at the same time most productive fertiliser series that I know, with an absolutely excellent price/performance ratio. At first I was also sceptical, but you notice a clear change in the growth of the plants even in otherwise less than ideal conditions. After these successes, I decided to set up a new aquarium and this is the result:
