Brightwell Aquatics Shrimp Blackwater Clear

Blackwater Clear
Provides humic substances for all shrimp & freshwater fish planted biotope aquaria with much less color
Overview
  • Shrimp safe and copper free.
  • Establishes similar water conditions to those found in blackwater rivers, many of which are home to important aquarium shrimp, fishes and plants without heavy darkening of the water.
  • Detoxifies copper and heavy metals.
  • May be used to help simulate the onset of the rainy season for encouragement of spawning.
  • Provides humic substances (humic and fulvic acid), complex bio-organic molecules known to increase the availability of important nutrients (such as iron, calcium, magnesium, molybdenum, manganese, zinc, cobalt, and nickel) to plants, potentially enhancing the effectiveness of plant nutrient solutions in aquaria.
  • Formulated utilizing extensive research on aquatic plant nutrient requirements and riverine water chemistry.
Instructions & Guidelines
Chemical filtration media that aggressively absorb organic material (such as macroporous resins) will quickly extract humic substances from aquarium water, which is useful when trying to eliminate these substances but is otherwise to be avoided when dosing this product. Activated carbon has limited effectiveness for this purpose, so it can remain. Basic: Add 2 ml (1 pump, if equipped with a pump, or 2 threads on cap) of Shrimp BlackWaterClear per 6 to 10 US-gallons of aquarium water twice each week; increase dosage thereafter depending upon perceived nutrient needs of shrimp, fish and plants. When used in this fashion, 500 ml treats up to 2,000 US-gallons (7,571 L). If desired, dosage may be increased to provide increased bioavailability of certain nutrients (see opposite panel); see comments regarding spawning below. In general, daily, rather than weekly, dosing is recommended; daily dosing maintains a more stable and natural environment than dosing weekly, in which nutrient concentrations spike just after dosing and then gradually decrease throughout the course of the week. To dose daily, add 6 drops per 20 US-gallons per day; adjust dosing volume after 3 - 5 weeks in accordance with appearance of plants shrimp and fishes, and perceived need for nutrients.
