Use and importance of trace nutrients


The correct dosage and application of trace nutrients is crucial for a healthy aquarium ecosystem. With Nutridrakon, we recommend a targeted dosage based on the size of the aquarium and the requirements of the plants and animals living in it. Regular addition of these nutrients ensures balanced growth and vibrant colours for the plants, while also promoting the health of the fish and microorganisms.

The role of trace nutrients in aquaristics

Trace nutrients are essential for the growth and development of aquarium flora and fauna. They play an important role in supporting bacterial activity in the tank and filter, which in turn ensures a healthy and stable ecosystem. A lack of these nutrients can lead to growth disorders and loss of colour in plants as well as health problems in the tank inhabitants. It is therefore important to use high-quality products such as Nutridrakon to ensure that your aquarium is optimally supplied with nutrients.

Product presentation Filter bacteria and nutrient solution for bacteria

Discover the revolutionary special filter bacteria and nutrient solution for bacteria from filtAS, which have proven themselves over many years of practical use. These bacteria, supplied in sterile glass ampoules, remain inactive and have an almost unlimited shelf life until they come into contact with aquarium water. This innovative approach ensures efficient colonisation of the bacteria on the filtAS filter media and guarantees outstanding biological filter performance. By adding the specially developed nutrient solution, these powerful bacteria, including nitrifiers and nitrate reducers, multiply and establish themselves in the filter at maximum speed, preventing the growth of inefficient foreign bacteria. The result is an efficiently colonised filter that contributes significantly to the health and stability of your aquarium.
