Product: Brightwell Aquatics Florin Delta 250gr - Establishes Proper K+, Mg2+ & Ca2+ in purified & Soft Water for all Planted Aquaria
Establishes an optimal mineral balance in water that has been purified or is exceedingly-softfor all freshwater planted aquaria, as well as for biotope aquaria housing fishes indigenous to forested and/or riverine habitats.
Supplies potassium, magnesium, and calcium, elements which are vital to the overall health of aquatic plants, in beneficial ratios. Has higher solubility than competing supplements.
May be used to establish beneficial water parameters in aquaria filled with purified water, to replenish depleted mineral concentrations in aquaria that rarely receive a water change, and to re-establish mineral concentrations following large water changes.
Provides trace chloride, a valuable plant nutrient, in a beneficial concentration.
Formulated utilizing extensive research on aquatic plant nutrient requirements.
Instructions and Guidelines
When preparing water for a water change: For every 5 US-gallons of water to be changed, dissolve 2 grams of Florin Delta GH+ in purified water or tap water and mix thoroughly to dissolve. Assuming a starting GH and TDS of 0, this will result in an increase of ~1.9 dGH and ~104 ppm, respectively. When employed at this dosing rate, 500 g treats 1,250 US-gallons (4,732 L). See Advanced Instructions to adjust strength of sol'n.
When preparing water for a new planted aquarium set up: Always adjust the water chemistry prior to adding live organisms to the aquarium. If placing the plants into the substrate prior to completely filling the aquarium, adjust the GH, KH, pH, and temperature of the water in a separate vessel (e.g. in a large, clean pail or vat) before adding it to the aquarium. Aquariumline suggest do not add a large volume of purified water to the aquarium and then attempt to adjust the water chemistry afterwards, as this will be stressful to the plants. Do not use when replacing water lost to evaporation.
Use Advanced Instructions below to calculate the amount of Florin Delta GH+ that will be required to bring about the desired change in GH or TDS to the volume of water to be used.
Advanced Instructions: Each gram of Florin Delta GH+ will increase the GH and TDS in 1 US-gallon of water by 4.7 dGH and 260 ppm, respectively. To obtain a specific GH and/or TDS value, divide the desired change in GH by 4.7 (or if TDS is preferred, divide the desired change in TDS by 260), then multiply this number by the net volume of water (in gallons) in the aquarium. Example: if the GH in 15 US-gallons is to be increased by 5 dGH, then add 16 g Florin Delta GH+ (5 ÷ 4.7 = 1.06 g per gallon; 1.06 g per gallon x 15 gallons = 16 g).
