and 15ml Amtra Pro Nature
The water quality in Germany and Europe has changed significantly in the last 20 years, but the traditional water treatment facilities in the hunting have remained the same in its basic composition. They mainly consist of chemical complexing agents that bind heavy metals and other toxic substances in the water fishing.
Above all, the complexing agents are no longer required to the same extent for water treatment in the aquarium. So we now know z. B. that excess complexing may interfere with the biological system Aquarium by able algae growth include favoring.
Amtra per nature is the first water purifier for the hunting and wearing these changing water conditions consistent statements by waiving a purely biological nature extract in any form of admixture chemical agents. So form in natural waters, dissolved carbon compounds (DOC) by far the best protection against overfishing harmful substances, such as heavy metal compounds or toxins. In tap water that DOC compounds occur not only in traces. With amtra ProNature bring these valuable natural products in concentrated form back into the aquarium, creating stable living conditions for the entire aquarium habitat.
For me, an unbeatable product. Have previously always uses Easy Life fluid filter medium and it was already getting excited.
But Amtra Pro Nature is once again a plan. Immediately after use all the fish and rays are much more active. And my Scalar catch every time after that to lay eggs immediately. Can only recommend it any real.
