- Concentrated source of nitrogen, one of the most important plant nutrients, required for
growth and long-term health, and utilized primarily in the production of nucleic acids and
proteins, accounting for up to 2% of plant tissue dry weight.
- Nitrogen is present as nitrate, a form appropriate for use in aquaria (ammonium can
revert to toxic ammonia in aquaria with pH over 7.0; urea is a source of ammonia)
- Contains Kelp extract, which provides natural phytohormones found to encourage growth
- Formulated utilizing extensive research on aquatic plant nutrient requirements

Nitrogen is required by plants in the largest amounts of the three major (macro) nutrients: nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Nitrogen is a part of all living cells and is a requisite of the metabolic processes in which proteins, amino acids, coenzymes, and nucleic acids are created. It is an integral part of chlorophyll manufacture through photosynthesis, the process in which light energy is utilized to convert carbon dioxide into carbohydrates, which is in turn used to provide the energy for growth and development.
Shake product well before using. The most effective method of using any ion-specific supplement is to determine the ionic concentration in the aquarium prior to supplementing. Maintain the nitrate concentration within a range of 10 – 20 ppm; it is not recommended to exceed 25 ppm nitrate in planted aquaria housing fishes and invertebrates.
Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption.
