Makro Basic - Nitrat

In a strongly lit well-planted tank or in aquariums with few fish a lack of macronutrients may occur, which in turn can lead to poor plant growth. Makro Basic Nitrat brings the important macronutrients of nitrogen and potassium into your tank. Your plants can draw on plentiful resources again and will thank you with lush growth.

Weekly water changes of 25% to 50% are recommendable. The dosage can be raised or lowered depending on your requirements. If your tank water shows high readings of nitrate from the start, this fertilizer is not suitable for your aquarium, though. It has been designed to prevent the accumulation of large concentrations of macronutrients. If high levels of nitrate occur, please reduce the dosage.

Comes in packages with a volume of 500 ml, 1,000 ml and 5 litres.

1 ml Makro Basic Nitrat per 50 litres of tank water adds the following nutrients:
NO31.00 mg/l
K0.60 mg/l

The basic supply of macronutrients in a tank is provided either by our NPK fertilizer, the Estimative Index fertilizer or by single-nutrient fertilizers (Makro Basic Nitrat, Phosphat and Kalium). The aquatic plant fertilizer Aqua Rebell Makro Basic Nitrat is the most important component in the single-nutrient fertilizing system. It adds the essential nutrient of nitrogen to the aquarium and is also optimally suited for batch fertilization (larger fertilizer quantity given just once), for example after a waterchange. Hereby you can reach a very waterplant-friendly nitrate content of approx. 10–20 mg/l. Aqua Rebell Makro Basic Nitrat can of course be dosed by the day, too. Besides nitrogen, Makro Basic Nitrat also adds the important nutrient of potassium to the tank. Thus, Aqua Rebell Makro Basic Nitrat lays the foundation for healthy waterplant growth.

Dosage per 50 litres
Lots of light (≥0.5 Watt per litre) + CO21 ml per day
Little light (<0.5 Watt per litre) + CO20.5 ml per day
No CO2 supply1–2 ml per week
This dosage suggestion is just a guideline. The dosage may have to be raised or lowered depending on the conditions in your tank in order to give you good results.
