Alder cones
Benefits of alder cones in aquatics
Several test series on catfish eggs have shown that the Verpilzungsrate has been significantly reduced with the use of alder cones in the aquarium.
Tannins and tannins, which are delivered through the alder cones to the water, reduce the spread of fungi. Some of the mushrooms are even killed.

Also in the rearing of young fish to alder cones have proven.
The fish that were regularly fresh alder cones into the water, were less ill and vulnerable, as the fish that did not get any pins in the interface.

Thus is also proved that certain active ingredients are germicide in the journal.

Dennerle CO2 long-term test Correct
Depending on the CO2 content of the special CO2 indicator reacts with a color change from
Blue = not enough CO2 through
Green = CO2 optimally by
Yellow = too much CO2.
At the six-color scale can be read directly in milligrams per liter of CO2 in the aquarium. Thus, the correct CO2 amount added easily and safely be adjusted.

Removes quickly and reliably greenish (floating algae) and white (bacterial) cloudiness by UV-C radiation.
