In a well-lit and well-planted aquarium or with little fish stock, the macronutrients are sometimes insufficient to maintain good plant growth. Makro Basic NPK supplies your aquarium with the most important macronutrients such as nitrogen, phosphate and potassium. This allows your plants to draw on their abundance again and grow well.
Water changes of 25% to 50% per week are recommended. The dosage can be increased or decreased depending on the pool. This fertilizer should not be used if there are high nitrate and / or phosphate levels in the aquarium. The fertilizer is designed so that no macronutrients accumulate in large quantities in the aquarium. If the fertilizer results in high nitrate and / or phosphate values, the dosage should be reduced.
A basic supply of the aquarium with macronutrients is realized either via the NPK fertilizer, Estimative Index fertilizer or via single nutrient fertilizers (Macro Basic nitrate, phosphate and potassium). The aquatic plant fertilizer Aqua Rebell Macro Basic NPK adds nitrate, phosphate, potassium and magnesium to the aquarium. Aqua Rebell Makro Basic NPK therefore covers all essential macronutrients and thus ensures healthy plant growth. The NPK fertilizer is designed in such a way that no high nutrient concentrations can accumulate in the aquarium, but only as much should be dosed per day as is consumed by the aquatic plants in one day. The dosage recommendation is a very good starting point for individually adapting the fertilization to your own aquarium.
When fertilizing, however, it should be noted that in addition to the NPK fertilizer, a micronutrient fertilizer (complete iron fertilizer) is required.
|Dosage per 50 liters
|Lots of light (> 0.5 watt per liter) + CO 2
|2 ml per day
|Little light (<0.5 watt per liter) + CO 2
|1 ml per day
|Without CO 2 supply
|2-4 ml per week
The dosage recommendation is only a guideline. The dosage of the fertilizer can be reduced or increased depending on the aquarium in order to achieve optimal results.
|2 ml Makro Basic NPK in 50 liters of aquarium water add the following nutrients:
|1.00 mg / l
|0.10 mg / l
|1.30 mg / l
|0.10 mg / l
