DISCUS TRACE ™ 250ml
Discus Trace ™ contains a bead series of minerals and trace elements that have been proven * to be necessary for optimal health and growth. Unlike terrestrial animals, fish get nutrients from both the feed and the aquatic environment. The trace elements are usually bound by oxygenation and water change, which is why it is important to add them regularly.
Discus Trace ™ contains exactly the minerals and trace elements that are actually scientific evidence for *, is a prerequisite for fish well-being in the softwater environment.
Discus Trace ™ is a well-rounded trace mineral supplement that does not contain table salt, sodium chloride (NaCl) and can therefore be used to replenish trace and ultra-trace minerals that are known to be necessary for fish health and growth.
Discus Trace ™ can be used as an additive in soaking freeze-dried feed products.
Some aquarists claim that the addition of table salt promotes the well-being of fish. However, this is a misunderstanding, which may be due to the fact that the English word "salt" is translated incorrectly and misinterpreted as Kitchen Salt. Table salt contains largely only sodium chloride or NaCl. Table salt can be used to advantage in disease control, but far from all fish tolerate a therapeutic daily use of table salt. Discus as a species often does not tolerate this elevated level of sodium chloride in the water. If you have plants in your discus aquarium, several plants will not tolerate it either.
Recommended dosage with Discus Trace ™ is 1 ml / 100 liters aquarium volume per week.
