Makro Spezial - N

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 Spezial N brings the important macronutrients nitrogen, potassium, magnesium and calcium 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. Use only with caution when your tank water pH is over 7, as the formation of ammonia cannot be totally avoided.

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

1 ml Makro Spezial N per 50 litres of tank water adds the following nutrients:
NO31.00 mg/l
K0.20 mg/l
Ca0.10 mg/l
Mg0.033 mg/l

The basic supply of macronutrients in a tank with soil-based substrate is provided by our waterplant fertilizers Makro Spezial Licht (nitrate, phosphate and potassium), Makro Spezial K (potassium) and Special N (nitrate). Our waterplant fertilizer Aqua Rebell Makro Spezial N is necessary to supply your tank with nitrogen. It is produced from several different nitrate salts and thus adds small amounts of potassium as well as some calcium and magnesium.

Especially aquatic plants like Hemianthus callitrichoides “Cuba” show a very positive reaction to the addition of Makro Spezial N. Your waterplants will attain more intensive colours and grow healthily. Of course, Makro Spezial N can also be used in tanks without a soil-based substrate, all waterplants benefit from the use of this fertilizer.

A fifth of all the nitrate contained in it consists of highly mineralised carbamide. Thus, 0.2 mg/l NO3 get into the tank through carbamide, which is first mineralised to ammonium and after that to nitrate. The plants can already use carbamide as well as ammonium, and for some species, these substances are even the preferred source of nitrogen. Thus, the nitrogen suppy is safeguarded by various sources, and your waterplants get their optimal provision of nutrients for healthy 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.
