|Rich in valuable trace elements|
|•||Protects from dangerous drop in pH|
|•||Reduces algae growth|
|•||Strengthens the immune system of the aquarium inhabitants|
|•||Binds ammonium and ammonia reduces the risk|
|•||It has a very high cation exchange activity and binds heavy metals|
|•||Acts as a natural chelator and thus obtain the reduced form of micronutrients and iron|
|•||Improves growth and stimulates reproduction in eg bee shrimps|
|•||Replaces the buffering capacity at lack of Karbonatpuffern and is irreplaceable in soft water if you want or have to do without carbonate completely|

The effect of humic acids
are responsible for the effect, especially polyphenols, quinones and stable radicals. They promote immunity and multiple resistance to stress. It is known that humic substances on the activation of white blood cells boost the immune system and lead to further cellular defense mechanisms. The influence of humic acids shown to increase survival in Prachtgrundkärpflingen (Nothobranchius furzeri) by about 15%. Gene expression analysis in Caenorhabditis elegans (nematode) showed that the genes are activated specifically encode the prolongation of life. In particular, various gentle stress proteins (HSP) are expressed, which have proven to be beneficial to the life extension and resistance.For heavy media (Xiphophorus helleri) was in experiments by use of humic acid to determine a multiple Stressimunität.Also in zebrafish (Danio rerio) became apparent that even a slight Huminsäurekonzetration yielded a positive effect on egg development. For black water fish survive without humic substances in acid and mineral-poor waters is even completely excluded. The pH even plays a humic acid-enriched water then no matter anymore. However, the mechanism of action is not fully deciphered. What is certain is that humic surfaces make adherent (adhesive) and cohesion (connection strength) of the water is removed. Deposited in fish or shrimp on the Kiemenepithel that provide enriched with bases humic improved osmoregulation with less energy expenditure against a strong gradient of the water. Less energy required for osmoregulation means better use of resources for growth and development. Is also used externally for fishing passive immunization, since the cell membranes are tanned by protein excretion and thus an indirect defense against invading pathogens is encouraged.
Instructions to use
Appropriate amount simply spread on the water surface. Blackwater Powder is readily soluble in water under all pH conditions. Please note that there is a temporary brown turbidity of the water, but passes within a short time in crystal clear water. If the water turbidity persist for several days, please check the filter or if necessary, reduce dosage.dosage depending on stocking rate weekly about 1 g per 50 liters of water. scoops mark 1ml = 0.5 g / 2ml = 1g.scoops included.
|50 g||(Enough for about||2500 l aquarium water)|
|130 g||(Enough for about||6500 l water)|
