Biotec Super Peat will soften your water by binding the calcium and magnesium ions while simultaneously releasing tannic and Gallic acids into the water. These acids then attack the bicarbonates in the water, reducing the water’s carbonate hardness and pH. It contains organic humic and tannic acids that simulate slightly soft acidic fish water found in Amazon, SE Asia, W Africa – ideal for : Angelfish, Barbs, Cichlid, Discus, Gouramis, Loaches, Rainbows, Tetras, Oscars, and all other soft water fish by converting hard tap & tank water into fish friendly river water.
Biotec Super Peat promotes breeding in many fish species, enhances fish colours & improves water quality, which in turn reduces stress and disease. Hummins & tannins have some anti-bacterial and algae suppression properties. Helps reduce ammonia toxicity at lower pH, a natural chemical produced by fish and other living things in an aquarium. Non-phosphate & non-sulfuric/hydrochloric acid based. Contains Barley Straw Extract to help suppress new algae growth & Biosuper microbes for waste degrading action.
