Aqua Rebell Makro Basic - NPK
In a fully planted aquarium that is strongly illuminated and in which few fish swim, a shortage of important nutrients can quickly occur. As a result, plant growth does not function optimally. With Makro Basic NPK, the aquarium plants are supplied with the most important nutrients such as Nitrogen (N), Phosphate (P) and Potassium (K). This will help your plants grow back vigorously with even fuller crowns and a lush, vital appearance!
A water change of 25-50% per week is recommended. The dosage can be increased or decreased depending on the conditions in the aquarium. This fertilizer should not be used if the Nitrate and/or Phosphate value in the aquarium is high. This liquid plant fertilizer for aquarium plants is formulated in such a way that large quantities cannot accumulate in the aquarium. If too high a nitrate or phosphate value is measured after adding this plant food, the dosage must be reduced.
Available in 500ml and 1000ml
| 2 ml Makro Basic NPK per 50L Aquarium water adds the following nutrients:
| NO 3
| 1.00 mg/l
| PO 4
| 0.10 mg/l
| 1.30 mg/l
| 0.10 mg/l
| Dosage advice per 50L aquarium water:
| Strong lighting (>0.5 Watt per Liter) + CO2
| 2 ml per day
| Low lighting (<0.5 Watt per Liter) + CO2
| 1 ml per day
| without CO2 fertilization
| 2-4 ml per week
The dosage advice is a guideline. The dosage can be reduced or increased depending on the type of aquarium for optimal results.
The standard supply of macro nutrients in the aquarium is provided by the NPK fertilization, the Estimative Index fertilization or by the loose fertilization (Makro Basic Nitrat, Phosphat and Potassium). The NPK fertilization adds the most important macro-nutrients; Nitrogen (N), Phosphate (P), Potassium (K) and Magnesium (Mg) and therefore serves as a complete fertilization of macro nutrients for aquarium plants. The result is beautiful, healthy plant growth. The liquid fertilizer is designed to prevent accumulation of large concentrations of nutrients. Nevertheless, the dosage should not be higher than the plants consume per day. The dosage advice is a very good starting point for the individual situation in the aquarium. Especially in the case of macronutrients, the situations in each aquarium are variable with regard to the fish stock and therefore the feeding regime.
In addition to adding Aqua Rebell Makro Basic NPK plant fertilizer, it is advisable to also add a Mikro plant fertilizer (iron fertilizer) :
