Interpet Filter Aid No.3 100ml polishes aquarium water to make it crystal clear
However good your filtration system, there are always minute particles present which find their way through the finest filter media.
These particles irritate fish gill membranes, stunt plant growth by filtering out light and ruin the enjoyment of seeing your fish in their full glory.
Interpet No.3 Filter Aid acts rapidly, clumping the fine particles together so that the filter can remove them, producing crystal clear water.
For use in coldwater and tropical freshwater systems.
One 100ml bottle treats 500 Litres
Convenient and effective way to catch flatworms (planaria) without using chemicals
Equip trap with food bait (JBL NovoTab), use suction pad and cord to hang it at an angle over the bottom and empty trap the following day
Convenient emptying of the trap: open lower plug and upper screw top and rinse under running water
Completely non-toxic in freshwater and marine water
Package content: 1 complete planaria trap (13 cm long) with transparent cord and suction pad for slanted positioning
To this class of animals belong the unpopular planaria which sometimes massively reproduce in aquariums and then can become a disturbing pest. They mostly lead a hidden existence and appear only at night. After using a planaria trap many people are surprised how many flatworms were present in their aquariums! Since chemical means against planaria have mostly unwanted side effects, the JBL planaria trap is a very good alternative without harmful side effects!
Flatworms in marine water:
Flatworms in marine water can look very beautiful, such as slugs. But they can also cause problems for corals, when they increase alarmingly and infest the corals. There are Turbellaria which, extremely well camouflaged, even can’t be found on a closer look. This also includes e.g. the Acropora-eating flatworm which can infest stony corals and lead to serious damage. Through an iodine bath of the affected coral outside the aquarium (2 ml Betaisodona/l) the Turbellaria will be paralysed and can be flushed away with a strong water jet. The wrasse Pseudocheilinus hexataenia is considered as the recommended natural enemy of choice, as it can even recognise clutches of worms to eat them.
Helps stop your goldfish becoming unwell.
Stabilises water quality by removing ammonia and adding essential tonic salt.
• Removes harmful chemicals and waste for a healthier environment
• Freshens water and acts as a tonic to your goldfish
• Easy to use with simple to follow instructions
• Treat 57 litres (100 pints) - enough for about 10-12 doses
Don't let your goldfish suffer in a nasty, stale tank. It's no wonder that swimming around in their own waste makes goldfish very unwell and can even kill them. So fight back against the filth with Interpet Gold Fish Safe. Added just once a week, this little wonder freshens the water and acts as a tonic to your goldfish, giving them extra zing.
Fish Safe is very easy to use; measure the volume of your tank, bowl or orb and add the correct dose using the supplied pipette or cap.
One pipette treats 0.45 litres (1 pint) and one capful treats 2.05 litres (4.5 pints). Use 2 days after a weekly water change. 100ml will keep your goldfish in clean water for around 10-12 treatments.
EIHO Plant KH is formulated to increase and maintain carbonate hardness (KH) in planted aquaria. In natural plant aquatic environment, KH is often low (0-2dKH), However, in aquaria, with CO2 addition, it
is important to maintain carbonate hardness. The recommend KH is 2-5dkH
Under low KH conditions, with addition of CO2, pH can drop to dangerously low level. With a high KH level, the aquaria are buffered from major pH changes. This will create a more stable environment for plants and fishes. The recommend pH levels for planted aquaria are 6.4-7.0.
Use immediately after water change
1drop for 1L
1 cap (5ml) for 50L of water
This dosage will increase about 1dKH.
KH of different water source can differ greatly. First measure the dKH level of water source and add accordingly to increase the dKH.
Interpet Sludge Buster adds essential bacteria to the aquarium which rapidly breaks down solid organic waste for a cleaner, healthier aquarium. This sludge comes from fish excretion, excess food and dead plants. Without using Sludge Buster, solid waste will build up and make the aquarium look unsightly and harbour unwanted pathogens that will affect fish health. Organic sludge will also block the aquarium filtration system. Using Sludge Buster can minimise aquarium maintenance. Use Sludge Buster every 2 weeks to ensure optimum sludge breakdown. Sludge Buster can be used at the same time as any other Interpet aquarium treatment and will not discolour the water. Use the dosage table and pipette or measuring cup provided to treat the aquarium water. Ensure you follow the instructions provided in the Guide to Fish Health carefully.
Pure culture of safe, effective bacteria to break down aquarium sludge waste
Contributes to a healthy aquarium and improves appearance
Reduces aquarium and filter cleaning and levels of disease causing bacteria
Easy to use – dosage table, pipette and measuring cup included
The smarter way to treat algae.
Especially effective for BBA, hair/string/fuzz and most forms of filamentous algae.
Gently biodegrades completely.
Spot-dose up to 1ml per 10L every 24 hours.
AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE
While healthy plant mass is the #1 natural defence against algae, life is often unpredictable.
The filter or CO2 diffuser gets clogged. Grandpa overfeeds the fish. The auto-timer takes an unannounced holiday.
These shocks ( seemingly insignificant to us) weaken plants and give algae a window of opportunity to spawn.
APT Fix works to rebalance the system by targeting the fundamental weakness of algae- their comparatively less developed protective cell walls. When spot-dosed per the recommended dosage, it instantly arrests algae growth while allowing plants to recover.
This is the most effective approach, but be careful not to let the plants dry out. Avoid this method for treating algae on Mosses, Liverworts (Riccardia and Riccia etc.) and Vallisneria (Tape Grass).
This is our usual approach. To increase effectiveness, pause the filter before spot-dosing. And don't forget to turn the filter back on! The effect should be visible by the next day.
Most algae treatments use compounds that contain Copper, which is a powerful biocide.
The problem is that copper, like other heavy metals, accumulate over time and do long term damage to the tank's ecosystem.
APT Fix uses an active compound that biodegrades naturally within 24hours, with no nasty residues.
The best natural defence against algae is a healthy dominant plant mass. Tanks with alot of exposed, un-planted areas are far more susceptible to algae, in the same way that fertile open fields invite weeds to grow.
Aim to have at least 70% of the substrate planted. Plants are like trees in a forest. With the right conditions, they naturally outcompete algae.
The top algae trigger is organic waste and decaying matter. Never over-stock a tank in its early months. Livestock waste contributes significantly to algae issues in new tanks (< 3 months old).
Regularly change water the 2Hr Way and remove old/ decaying leaves. Stem plants require replanting of the healthy tops after trimming once or twice. Old deteriorating stems invite algae to bloom.
The above shows the result of a single dose of APT Fix via spot-dose method. By Day 2, the inactive BBA would usually change color to red and/or white. These would either decompose, or serve as food for algae-eaters and other microorganisms. By Day 7, the leaf is now mostly free of algae.
The above shows the result of a single dose of APT Fix via the drain-dose method. By Day 2, the hair-algae has lost some of its green color. By Day 5, all the hair algae has been deactivated. You can remove it completely using a fine brush.
