The Dutch plant aquarium



 

The so-called Dutch aquarium has been popular since the 1960s and was first used - where else? - in theNetherlands. To date aquaristics has concentrated heavily on caring for fish. However, with plant aquaria, fish are either done away with altogether, or just small shoal fish that do not burrow or eat plants are used. Typically grouped plants that are similar in growth pattern and colour are used. Visual highlights are created using flamboyant individual plants or root woods. Besides light and heated substrate, good carbon dioxide fertilisation is especially necessary for this type of tank. 

 

 

 
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.

 

 
pH-Set Delta
with Electrode

pH regulator for CO2 dosage. Consisting of Dupla pH Control Delta, gel electrode, plug-in power supply unit, pH4 calibration solution, pH7 calibration solution, Dupladest, measuring beaker.

 

 

High-quality pH glass electrode with calibration solutions (each of 10 ml pH 4, pH 7, Dest). Laboratory quality.

 
Thermik Set 240
40 W, 5 m

 

 

Ground convection heater for activating roots in aquariums up to 240 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.

 
Thermik Set 360
60 W, 7 m

 

 

Ground convection heater for activating roots in aquariums up to 360 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 instrument for regulating the temperature, complete with digital display. 230 V. Two circuits optionally for heating/heating or heating/cooling. Regulating range: from 0° C to 50° C. Breaking capacity: 2x1,000 VA / 230 Volt. Regulating accuracy: 0.1° C. Optical and acoustic alarm signals. Alarm limits: +/- 0 to 99.9° C deviation from set value. Processor-controlled switching delay. Control panel separate from control power supply. Low-voltage control panel, 9 V. Incl. temperature sensor.

 
CO2 Set 250
other sizes available...

 

 

Professional CO² system for aquaria up to 250 l. 

 

 

Controls the CO2 supply via a timer switch (semi-automatic regulation) or a pH-regulator (fully-automatic regulation).
