NeoTiger KH + / GH + is a liquid preparation that treats water in shrimps and freshwater aquariums. Establishes the optimal mineral balance in the water. It is a source of calcium, potassium, sodium and magnesium. The offer is for 250ml of the preparation.
Purified water, sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium salts, secondary and trace minerals.
Establishes an optimal mineral balance in purified water (e.g. osmotic, deionized, etc.) or too soft water for use in freshwater shrimp tanks and biotope aquariums inhabited by fish naturally occurring in forested and / or river ecosystems.
It provides the optimal amount of ingredients such as potassium, calcium, magnesium and sodium, the key elements necessary for the maintenance of general health and the proper functioning of the osmoregulation process in fish, invertebrates and many aquatic plants.
It can be used to obtain water parameters conducive to the breeding of freshwater fish, plants and invertebrates in aquariums with purified water, as well as to replenish the deficiencies of elements in tanks where water changes are rare, and to restore favorable concentrations of elements in the aquariums where changing a significant amount of water.
The formula is based on data from extensive research on the ionic composition of river waters characteristic of many forest-tropical plant areas and shrimp regions, which are of great importance for aquarium breeding purposes.
Shrimps, other invertebrates and aquatic plants require the presence of certain elements in the water that maintain the osmotic balance and ensure the proper course of biochemical functions. The NeoTiger KH + / GH + preparation optimally meets the needs of organisms for these ingredients, and its composition is the result of work based on the results of the latest research on aquatic ecosystems.
Calcium is an essential element for the proper course of blood clotting, bone tissue formation and many other metabolic processes in fish. It is also a key component responsible for the proper operation of processes related to the stabilization of cell walls and their permeability, as well as enzymatic processes taking place in plants.
Potassium and sodium are also fundamental elements for aquatic animals – their presence in the body is required for the proper course of neurological and muscular functions. Potassium
in addition, it plays a key role in the processes of protein synthesis, maintaining a stable water and cargo balance and activating enzymes in plants.
Magnesium, in turn, is part of chlorophyll and is also used in the activation of enzymes.
Sulfur is one of the components of proteins and coenzymes responsible for the proper use of nutrients and the proper development of organisms.
Silicon in the form of silica is a very important component of plant cells, it helps increase plant endurance and accelerate root development. In addition, it has a buffering effect, preventing changes in water pH.
It should be borne in mind that parameters such as the amount of dissolved solids (TDS) and total hardness (GH) do not measure the concentration of ions in a solution in the same way, and thus it is not entirely possible to directly convert certain values between them. The total hardness (GH) is related to the sum of the divalent cations in the solution (mainly calcium and magnesium), while the amount of dissolved solids (TDS) reflects the concentration of conductive compounds in the solution. This information is for reference only. In general, aquatic ecosystems in wooded areas are characterized by a relatively low concentration of dissolved inorganic compounds, so the overall hardness and concentration of dissolved solids in this type of water are also low. Although NeoTiger KH + / GH + has been developed to regulate water chemistry in aquariums inhabited by fish and plants naturally occurring in almost all aquatic ecosystems, in order to remineralise purified water intended for aquariums for fish from East African rift lakes, it is recommended to use the preparation Rift Lake Chemie, which in turn was created exclusively for such an environment.
Instructions for use:
It is recommended to consult the relevant information on the water chemistry parameters required by shrimp, fish and / or plants in order to determine the optimal range of total hardness (GH) and / or dissolved solids concentration (TDS). Before using the preparation in an aquarium inhabited by living organisms, it is necessary to first establish an appropriate pH level and the right water temperature. Before starting the treatment of purified water with the preparation, its total hardness (GH) and / or concentration of dissolved solids (TDS) should be determined. Then follow the instructions. Shake the preparation well before each use. The preparation is designed mainly for Neo Caridina prawns and tiger prawns.
Increasing the GH / TDS level in a previously set up aquarium: Use up to 4 ml (two presses of the dispenser, if included in the set) of NeoTiger KH + / GH + per 38 l of water every hour until the desired GH / TDS level is reached. Changes in water chemistry (regardless of which parameter is adjusted) should always be gradual, not sudden.
Preparation of water for replacement: To increase the GH level of water by 1 degree and the KH level by 0.57 degrees, use NeoTiger KH + / GH + in purified or tap water in the proportion of 2 ml of the preparation (about one press of the dispenser) for every 19 l of water osmotic or deionized for replacement. Mix thoroughly.
Preparing the water for a new aquarium set-up: Before placing living organisms in the tank, you must establish the appropriate water parameters. When setting up a planted aquarium and placing plants in the substrate before the tank is completely filled with water, establish the desired total hardness (GH), carbonate hardness (KH), pH and water temperature in a separate vessel (e.g. large, clean bucket or bucket) before adding it to the tank. Do not pour large amounts of purified water into the tank and then change its chemical parameters, as such action may be stressful for organisms living in the aquarium. To determine the dose of NeoTiger KH + / GH + needed to establish the desired GH / TDS values for a given amount of water, please follow the detailed instructions below.
Detailed recommendations: 1 ml of NeoTiger KH + / GH + increases the total hardness (GH) and carbonate hardness (KH) of 10l of water by 1.0 dGH and 0.57 dKH, respectively. Pressing the dispenser once results in 2 ml of the preparation. To obtain a specific GH level: divide the number expressing the desired change in GH value by 2.5, then multiply the number obtained by the net water capacity of the tank (expressed in US gallons, where 1 gallon = 3.785 l). Example: If the GH value in 76 liters of water (20 gallons) is to be increased by 2 dGH, use 16 ml of NeoTiger KH + / GH + (2 ÷ 2.5 = 0.8 ml per gallon; 0.8 ml per gallon x 20 gallons = 16 ml). Shrimps need the right amount of iodine to maintain overall health and the moulting processes to take place. Brightwell recommends the use of Florin-I in all freshwater shrimp tanks.
