Our aquarium complete fertiliser provides aquarium plants with important nutrients and supports vital growth. It is a good idea to buy an iron fertilizer to provide a basic supply for the aquarium plants. Fertilising the aquaria also ensures a particularly intense colouring of the leaves.
All advantages at a glance:
- Iron fertilizer as basic supply for aquarium plants
- Contains all essential nutrients
- Supports vital growth
- Intensive leaf colouring
- Less algae formation
Ferrdrakon full iron fertilizer as ready-to-use solution or as refill pack
Ferrdrakon complete iron fertilizer serves as a basis for fertilizing a normally planted tank without any other special features. The complete aquarium fertilizer contains all important and essential nutrients.
For fertilizing the water plants, however, supplementary fertilizer products such as Eudrakon N and Eudrakon P can be added to supplement the fertilization with macronutrients such as nitrate or phosphate as needed.
Extremely strong lighting and very dense planting produce strong plant growth. This and trickle filters or UV water clarifiers cause an increased consumption of certain micronutrients. In this case, a special fertilizer such as Daydrakon or + should be used in addition to the complete aquarium fertilizer.
Iron fertilizer for the aquarium - Ingredients [in mg/L]
Potassium 3 000, iron 1 000, magnesium 750, manganese 400, boron 60, copper 20, molybdenum 20, zinc 20, cobalt 10, nickel 10, iodide 4,6, EDTA, HEEDTA, DTPA, NTA or IDHA*, methyl paraben, ascorbic acid
* Please note package information
Weekly addition of Ferrdrakon at recommended dosage
Potassium 300, iron 100, magnesium 75, manganese 40, boron 6, copper 2, molybdenum 2, zinc 2, nickel 1, cobalt 1, iodide 0.46
10 ml per 100 l tank water each week (± 50 % depending on the plant growth)
Adding 1/7 of this calculated amount each day is beneficial.
When fertilizing the aquarium plants, start with the lowest possible dosage and increase slowly. The effect should be observed: if no improvement in growth can be observed or problems with algae occur, the dose should be reduced immediately.
A pre-requisite for this is that a minimum of 25% of the water is exchanged every 2 weeks. A greater exchange of water does no harm, rather is quite a sensible move.
Ideal iron content
0.05 - 0.1 mg/l
Store in a dark cool place (the metal chelate complexes are sensitive to light) - minimum storage life please see database.
The solution that is delivered normally has a light yellow to dark brown colour. After the entry of air, some time later, it can cause the colour to change to dark brown or eventually green-black, but it always remains clear. The effectiveness of the fertilizer is however not affected in any way by this colour change process.
