Instructions and Guidelines
FlorinAxis will help create an environment conducive to long-term plant health and growth; it is part of a complete system for planted aquarium husbandry and is most beneficial when used in conjunction with supplements that provide other necessary nutrients. Water care products that provide a full range of nutrients, such as Brightwell Aquatics FlorinMulti, Florin-K, Florin-Fe, and FlorinGro, should be used as plant requirements in individual aquaria dictate. Shake product well before using.
Basic: For the first 3 - 5 weeks of use, add 5 ml (1 capful) of product per 50 US-gallons (189.3 L) of aquarium water once each week; increase dosage thereafter depending upon perceived nutrient needs of plants. Densely-planted aquaria and/or those that enjoy rapid plant growth (such as aquaria with intense lighting and CO2 supplementation) may benefit from more frequent supplementation. When used in this fashion, 250 ml treats up to 2,500 US-gallons (9,464 L).
Advanced: Daily, rather than weekly, dosing is recommended; daily dosing maintains a more stable and natural environment than dosing weekly, in which nutrient concentrations spike just after dosing and then gradually decrease throughout the course of the week. To dose daily, add 6 drops per 50 US-gallons per day; adjust dosing volume after 3 - 5 weeks in accordance with appearance of plants and perceived need for nutrients. Carbon supplementation is something that most hobbyists maintaining planted aquaria are interested, if not already engaging, in. The source of carbon in FlorinAxis is taken up by plants as required, which is in contrast to broadcasting CO2 gas throughout an aquarium to act as a carbon source. Because of this, it will take some experimentation on the hobbyist’s part to determine how much carbon in this form is required by their plants. Hobbyists already employing a CO2 system will see benefits from the addition of FlorinAxis, due to the positive influence it has on the Krebs cycle and on other aspects of plant growth. Because carbon availability is often the limiting factor in plant growth, dramatic results are more likely to be seen in planted aquaria in which no form of carbon supplementation is already employed; regardless, all aquaria can benefit from the formulation and science behind this supplement.
