The aquascaping aquarium



  

More and more people successfully attempt to design their aquarium in a new style.


Plants and decorative elements such as natural rocks or roots arranged under water are at the centre of aquascaping. The aim is to create in extremely confined spaces a landscape that resembles nature as closely as possible. Plant nutrients and CO2 must be added to the water for everything to retain this initial charm.

Sufficient light must be provided in the form of special fluorescent tubes and LED lamps available from specialist retailers.  For those who do not wish to dispense with animals, there is a wide range of fish as well as shrimps and crustaceans that harmonise perfectly with aquascaping.

Many of them keep algae growth in check and bring new life into the tank. Various water snails in many different colours and shapes are not only eye-catchers but real helpers as well.

 

 

 
Ground
3 l
other sizes available...

 

 

Ground is a lime-free, water-neutral substrate. It ideally supports plants and has a highly decorative effect. Its grain size of 1 - 4 mm aids circulation in the aquarium bed, while its round form is ideally suited for ground dwellers such as catfish and loaches.

 
Thermik Set 120
20 W, 3 m
other sizes available...

 

 

Ground convection heater for activating roots in aquariums up to 120 l. The  Thermik Set warms the substrate material alone. The resulting temperature difference causes oxygen-rich water to circulate into the lower substrate layers and nutrients to circulate into the upper layers. For aquarium heating an additional regulated heater is necessary. Supplied with safety isolating transformer.

 

 

Microprocessor-controlled Dual-circuit-temperature Controller with Timer function. Two temperature sensors, two independently of one another controlled temperature circuits.

• six programming combinations of water temperature, substrate temperature, water cooling or timer switch on two program positions
• two aquaria can be controlled independently
• temperature control possible in 0.1 °C increments
• timer switch with seconds and interval function
• for temperatur night reduction with 2 on/off switching times
• adjustable visual and audio alarm
• blue illuminated display showing all target and actual values
• separation between operating element and power supply by USB connector
• power supply with 2 slots and LED status indication
• socket slots feature manual on/off switch function
• memory function avoids loss of data during power cuts
• includes 2 temperature sensors with USB connector

 
Duplarit G
250 g
other sizes available...

 

 

Natural iron-active tropical laterite for setting up new aquariums. Basic bottom fertilizer for all aquarium plants. Enhances growth and appearance and prevents deficiency symptoms. Contains soil bacteria that, in symbiosis with the roots, unlock the nutrients. 250 g are sufficient for the bottom of a 100 litre aquarium.

Optimum results in combination with Plant basic and Plant 24.

 
Duplarit K
10 balls, Ø 25 mm

 

 

Natural tropical laterite in pellet form for subsequent use in existing aquariums. Iron-active soil additive for all aquarium plants. Enhances growth and appearance and prevents deficiency symptoms.

Viscous adhesive for secure fixing of plants and mosses on decoration materials within seconds.

 
Scaper's Juice Eisen 24
10 ml
other sizes available...

 

 

Eisen 24 is an iron complex fertilizer and contains not only iron that can be utilised by plants but also trace elements such as: manganese, copper, nickel, zinc, tin and iodine. A daily dose of Eisen 24 ensures strong and healthy plant growth, prevents deficiency symptoms and plant leaf deformation.

 
Scaper´s Juice Kalium 24
10 ml
other sizes available...

 

 

Potassium is one of the macronutrients and is essential for photosynthesis. A regular dose of potassium is necessary for lush and healthy plant growth. A potassium deficiency is indicated by plant deformation and yellow discolouring of the leaves.

 
Scaper´s Juice N/P 24
10 ml
other sizes available...

 

 

Relatively large quantities of phosphates and nitrogen compounds are required for adequate plant growth. The highly active core nutrients nitrogen and phosphate in
N/P 24 are effective immediately, balance nutrient deficiencies and support healthy and strong plant growth. One drop of  N/P 24 contains 16.5 mg nitrate and 1 mg phosphate.

CO2 Diffusor Set, S, 26,5 cm
other sizes available...

 

 

The Dupla CO2 Diffusor Set consists of a CO2 diffusor with sucker fixture, a CO2 bubble counter with sucker fixture, a safety valve and 1,5 meters of CO2 tube for the connection to your CO2 fitting.

 

A sufficient supply of CO2 in the aquarium is absolutely necessary for water plants, as CO2 delivers carbon dioxide, the most important nutrient for plants. Through the Dupla CO2 Diffuser, sufficient CO2 is released for aquariums up to 160 liters. Via the CO2 diffusion disk, CO2 is released in tiny little CO2 gas bubbles. These small CO2 bubbles diffuse in the aquarium thus guaranteeing an optimal assimilation by the plants. Please note that the diffusion disk, in order to function properly, needs a certain initial pressure from the accumulating CO2 bubbles; in the beginning, once-only, it will emit a larger quantity of CO2 into the aquarium. Wait and see this effect without increasing the bubble quantity, as otherwise you will have to reduce the blister quantity again afterwards.

Check the CO2 content of the aquarium water with the help of a CO2 permanent test . Regulate the CO2 to fit your aquarium’s demand by increasing or decreasing the CO2 bubble quantity.
