Tetra PlantaMin is a high quality plant food which contains no nitrates or phosphates. The formula contains all the essential trace elements in a slow release format so that it can be dosed every 4 weeks.
Aquarium plants are the green “power stations” of an aquarium. They play several key roles at the same time. Aquarium plants produce oxygen and improve the quality of the water. As a result, aquatic plants help create an appropriate environment for fish. Tetra PlantaMin intensively nourishes aquatic plants with iron, potassium, manganese and other important nutrients, promoting healthy plant growth. The depot formula ensures an optimum supply over 30 days. This actively prevents signs of deficiencies such as perforated, pale or discoloured leaves or reduced plant growth over extended periods of time. The nutrients contained in Tetra PlantaMin are optimally absorbed by the leaves. The promotion of chlorophyll formation enhances the colouring of aquatic plants, Healthy plant growth is the best way to prevent algae as healthy plants use up excess nutrients such as nitrate and phosphate. Tetra PlantaMin is free of phosphate and nitrate and therefore does not contaminate the aquarium water.
