Nano tank substrate

PROH2O - the bioactive nano tank substrate consists of ground expanded clay. The grain size between 0,1 and 1 mm gives aquatic plants excellent support and enables a good flow through it due to the low density at high porosity. The circulation around aquarium floors inhibits rotting of aquatic plant roots, whereby the trace elements from the clay provide the roots with micro fertilisers via natural means over the years - ideal conditions for profuse vegetation.

PROH2O - the bioactive nano tank substrate is produced by heating clay to around 1200C and is fine-grained, open-pored and sterile expanded clay which was ground and sieved. The microporous structure within the granules creates an ideal habitat for anaerobic, denitrifying bacteria, whereas, the well-bathed surface of the granules allows nitrifying, aerobic bacteria to colonise. This aquarium substrate also functions as an excellent biological filter.

PROH2O - the bioactive nano tank substrate not only has a positive influence on fish and water plants through its filtration effects and micro fertilisation, but also the warm reddish brown colour is equivalent to the colouring of the substrate of many tropical biotopes. As a result, it provides a great feel-good effect for aquatic animals.

Aquarium substrate

PROH2O - bioactive aquarium gravel is made from granulated clay. The grain size between 1 and 4 mm allows aquatic plants sufficient foothold and at the same time enables a good flow through it. Circulation in aquaria floors inhibits rotting of aquatic plant roots, whereby the trace elements from the clay provide the roots with micro fertilisers via natural means over the years - ideal conditions for profuse vegetation.

PROH2O - bioactive aquarium gravel is produced by heating clay to around 1200C and is fine-grained, open-pored and sterile expanded clay with a relatively high density. The microporous structure within the granules allows anaerobic, denitrifying bacteria an ideal habitat, whereas the well-bathed surface of them allows nitrifying, aerobic bacteria to colonise - this aquarium substrate functions additionally as an excellent biological filter.

PROH2O - bioactive aquarium substrate does not only have a positive influence on fish and water plants through its filtration effects and micro fertilisation, but also the warm reddish brown colour is equivalent to the colouring of the substrate of many tropical biotopes and thus provides a great feel-good effect for aquatic animals.

Peat granules

PROH2O - peat granules are compacted under high pressure at 250 degrees Celsius, so that the extremely tightly meshed plant fibres are naturally granulated under the water vapour. This took place without a binding agent, which as a result means the structure of the material is highly varied in form and grain.

PROH2O - peat granules have been developed for fishkeeping as a humic matter deposit with long term efficacy. Its high compaction inhibits a short term washout of water soluble substances such as humic acid, micro fertilisers, trace elements, biocatalysts, etc., which on the one hand can inhibit an abrupt change to the water parameters, and on the other hand provides a constant and lasting care of the aquarium water and its inhabitants with respect to the above-mentioned substances.

PROH2O - peat granules should be used above all in aquaria with fish fry from Blackwater habitats. Humic matter contains things such as alder cones, Indian almond tree leaves, and oak bark, which has been used long by aquarists, ornamental fish breeders and ornamental fish exporters, in order to directly or indirectly positively influence the quality of life of fish and aquarium plants. Directly, the humic matter, among other effects, works by diminishing certain pathogens that may even be toxic, such as the so-called fish mould, Saprolegnia parasitica. Indirectly, the humic matter has an effect through strengthening the immune system, improvement to the growth process or spawning readiness, faster healing of mechanical injuries, higher hatching rate of the clutch and many other effects.

PROH2O - Peat granules are inappropriate for use in salt water aquaria!
