Used in large quantities by aquatic plants, Phosphorus is one of the three main nutrients (called macro nutrients) central to plant growth. It is usable by aquatic plants in the form of Phosphate.
Phosphorus is a component of nucleic acids and adenosine triphosphate, which are involved in the vital process of enzyme synthesis and energy transfer. Its compounds play a basic role in the mechanisms of photosynthesis which is essential for plant growth. Phosphorus is released by decaying waste, food and plant rests but often in amounts that are insufficient for planted aquariums, with supplementation via fertiliser usually required.
Phosphorus is often in short supply in planted aquariums and frequently overlooked. It has been inaccurately thought to cause algae. In reality, it is often the least available macronutrient, making it decisive for the amount of biomass produced.
SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE
Use 1 pump (2ml) per 100L, 3x per week with 50% weekly water change.
• For HIGH LIGHT tanks with injected CO2, dense plant mass and good flow - instead use 3 pumps per 100L, 3x per week (maximum dosage) with 50% weekly water change.
• For LOW LIGHT tanks, dose the normal amount but only 1-2 times per week.'
*Amounts above are for reference only. Your planted aquarium may need more or less depending on many factors
WARNING: 3 PUMPS PER 100L IS THE MAXIMUM DOSAGE. DO NOT OVERDOSE
3 pumps (6ml) in 100L yields
Phosphorus (P) 0.84ppm
Potassium (K) 1.10ppm
Phosphate (PO4) 2.60ppm
Target ranges in parts per million (ppm) from low light to high light planted tank respectively.
Nitrate (NO3) range 7.5-30 ppm
Potassium (K) range 7.5-30 ppm
Phosphate (PO4) range 2.5-6 ppm
Iron (Fe) range 0.5-1.5ppm (or higher in some cases)
**It's important to note that these are equivalent weekly doses. For example, to achieve 20-30ppm nitrate you would dose All-in-One Fertiliser 3-4x per week.**
