Elemental Nitrogen is a concentrated supplement for freshwater planted aquarium containing one of the main macro nutrient “Nitrogen”. It’s deficiency results in shunted growth as it is important part of photosynthesis. Containing nitrogen in nitrate and ammonium form, it allows precise and controlled dosing of nitrogen in planted aquarium.
WHY ELEMENTAL NITROGEN?
Aquatic plants need nitrogen for the formation of amino acids which is building block of plant protein. This results in the development of cells and tissues for overall growth and development of the plant. Yellowing of the leaves, particularly the older ones and smaller new leaves indicate nitrogen deficiency.
Typical concentrations of nitrogen in the form of nitrate equivalent should be maintained between 10 to 25 mg/L in a planted aquarium.
As some plant species prefer the ammonium form of nitrogen while the others nitrate. Elemental Nitrogen by Aquatrition® provides nitrogen in safe ammonium and nitrate form. Moreover, ammonium nitrogen lowers the pH thus promoting nutrient uptake.
Use 5mL of the solution per 60 liters of water to raise the nitrogen concentration equivalent to 8 mg/L nitrate. For best results, use in combination with Elemental Phosphorus and Elemental Potassium by Aquatrition®.
