VIMI Reminamin – a balanced approach

vimi reminamin 250g

Depending on the type of aquatic plants that you keep, you may already be using Reverse Osmosis (RO) water and/or Deionized (DI) water. However, you should not overlook the need to add minerals back as plants (and even livestock) won’t do well otherwise.

One way of doing that is to use remineralisation powders – like VIMI Reminamin. This is a mixture of minerals ideal suited for RO (reverse osmosis) or DI (deionized) water to grow aquatic plants. Composition involves additional substances which increase aquarium plants resistance to stress when the conditions in aquarium change quickly. Safe for aquarium fish and invertebrates. Sodium (Na) salt free.

What are the advantages?

Its composition involves minerals, amino acids and other substances which increase aquarium plants’ resistance to stress when the conditions in aquarium change quickly, stimulates faster recovery after transplantation, cutting, fast change of aquarium conditions during the water change.

Calcium (Ca) to Magnesium (Mg) ratio is ideal for aquatic plants demand. Composition involves potassium (K) so there is less need of additional supplement of this element. Composition is Sodium (Na) free, which can stop healthy plant development.

The product has a balanced amount of carbonate hardness necessary for healthy plant growth. VIMI Reminamin composition involves essential micronutrients as well: iron, chloride (not chlorine), manganese and others.

Due to its special manufacturing technology, VIMI Reminamin is particularly readily soluble in water.

We got BALLS!

Yes we do and they come in different sizes from 2cm to a whopping 7cm.

Marimo Moss Balls are algae balls (although they are referred to as moss balls due to their visual look). They are interesting decoration suitable for smaller aquariums.

They are also available in larger sizes and in nature reach up to 20-30 cm. They are not demanding in terms of conditions, but they do better with medium light. Together with stones and roots, you can achieve an attractive aquarium design.

Interestingly, this algae usually forms carpet surfaces at the bottom of lakes in Japan and Northern Europe, but if a piece of it separates, it is carried away by waves, which eventually make it a ball. Even in the aquarium, it is good to turn them from time to time to maintain their shape. When they grow to a certain size, they can be split.

They grow at a rate of 0.5cm per year and are often used in shrimp tanks and are useful to control the growth of unwanted algae as they compete for the same food source.
