Instructions and Guidelines
FlorinMulti will help establish water chemistry conducive to long-term plant health and growth; specific nutrient requirements may be addressed with other Brightwell Aquatics supplements. 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 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: FlorinMulti provides nutrients in the following ratios: 133.3 K : 0.02 B : 1.8 C : 46.7 Ca : 131.6 Cl : 0.003 Co : 0.01 Cu : 1.0 Fe : 0.3 I : 16.7 Mg : 0.07 Mn : 0.003 Mo : 0.005 Ni : 54.7 S : 0.13 Zn. Daily dosing is recommended, as it 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. If, through continued dosing, the concentration of elements in an aquarium is in excess of that required by plants for continued health, some amount of enrichment may occur; this does not negatively impact the plants. Enrichment is minimized by ensuring that none of the nutrients becomes limiting to plant production, and in many cases the limiting nutrient will be carbon; in such instances, adding a carbon source can dramatically increase the rate of plant growth, and the growth rate itself may be controlled to some extent by regulating the amount of carbon made available. In this manner, the rate of plant growth may be made more manageable by the hobbyist if such rapid growth is unwanted.
