How to Add Water to Aquariums Effectively

Water division – the problem is not new for players at the semi-professional level and above, but for those who are new, it is like a gamble. You can win with a healthy, thriving aquarium or lose with a moss-covered pond.

In order to effectively add water, we must know the following characteristics:

Characteristics of the tree

Leaf: The leaves of shallow plants can absorb nutrients directly by spraying fertilizer on leaves and branches. But in aquatic plants it is not so, the leaves of aquatic plants do not absorb nutrients directly, but only have the task of photosynthesis and osmosis of ions. Underwater leaves are very thin, but when you absorb nutrients, you will rot the leaves, because you know how hot the fertilizer is, this is basic knowledge.

Roots: This is the main part of the plant that absorbs nutrients. All nutrients are directly absorbed by the roots and converted to feed the stem and leaves. So, if you don't have roots, you will see that the plants stand still for a long time, when they take root, they will start to grow again, or the bucep stems and roots without roots for a long time will be old and old. because there is no supplementary nutrition.

Understanding these 2 properties will make it easier for us to add water

Water feces

Micronutrients: In the background there are a lot of microelements, most of the background sets have bones, then if playing bucep, nana seems indispensable.

In the old days, you guys never had to add water to the plug, cutting the plug has such a terrible attraction, but it took a year for the background to start to lose color, why do you play bucep and wax again? quality, ironing of all kinds while bucep and wax are weak nutrient absorption lines.

Multi-quantity: This is the substance that is often lacking in the aquarium because plants need macronutrients, when the plants fully absorb the macronutrients, they will begin to absorb the medium and micronutrients. If the plant does not absorb enough macronutrients that we add micronutrients, the plant will not be able to eat it and will eventually cause poisoning.

Back to the problem of properly filling water, we start:

Observing the tree

First we have to look at the roots of the plant first because the roots are the main suction, everything we put into the tank is effective or not, it depends on this root system.

If the plant has no roots, stop adding all water fertilizers. At this time, we must stimulate the roots or give oxygen to the plant to wake up. When we start to have roots, we just start adding macronutrients, but inching slowly because the roots are still few and weak and can't absorb much (ignoring the micronutrients, you don't need to care about it because there's a lot in the background. but worry)

You can aerate oxygen 24/24 so that the healthy microflora can process nutrients more easily and add 1ml of excel per 100 liters of water every day to dissolve heavy metals that are difficult for plants to absorb into substances that are beneficial to plants. easier for plants to absorb. This helps the plant absorb the micronutrients better.

Note: For the many micro- and macro-enriched lakes that you add, it is a ball of water. There's a little trick like this. When filling in such a large amount, one day later, you will have to absorb 80-100% water, so you will see that there are people who change the water once to dry the lake.

The reason is that after 1 day, the amount of water fertilizer has started to seep into the background, then the background will release back for the plants to absorb. So the excess amount in the water will be dangerously toxic to the plant, need to be sucked out. That's the trick when adding a lot of water.

As for the lakes with little water change, the micronutrients in the background released are enough for the plants or you need to add a few micronutrients every once in a while in case a lot of water changes are released or the inert substrate is not enough. add a little.

But one rule is the tree must be healthy, right full of macros, strong roots Just think about the quantity. If these elements are not complete, then micro useless.

Understanding the function of leaves and roots is very easy to use fertilizer properly, right?


Above is a picture of my lake with 90% as bucep noid after 20 days of development. If you are healthy first, the car will be beautiful. But the stalk with 1-2 leaves looks boring

Hopefully after this article you can understand more about how to use water fertilizers effectively.

Seachem's NPK Mixing Guide

Nitrogen: 500ml

Phosphorus: 250ml

Potassium: 250ml

Mix together

Refer: What Is New Tank Syndrome? How to fix

Dosage: 1ml / 100 liters of lake water per day (because seachem is 2 times more concentrated than jbl, only 1ml is used)

Changing the water does not need to be refilled

Attention: Remember to effervescent oxygen 24/24 so that the metabolism in the plant takes place more efficiently and the micro-organisms are healthier.

Formula for 100 liter tank

• 2ml macronutrients per day

• 1ml excel per day

• 1ml flourish per week (because the background is inert, so 1ml of synthetic micronutrients must be injected every week, there is no need for the background) to start adding micronutrients in the 3rd month.

How to know a healthy microbiome

You look at the oxygen in the tank:

When the microflora is healthy, the water will not be foamed when it is oxygenated. In this case, anyone who has played shrimp for a long time will know when using effervescent bio

The surface of the water pulls a lot of foam, even if the water is still clear, it is not certain that the clear water will be healthy

Note: This is basic knowledge not everything. It just helps you understand when to and shouldn't. As for the coloring for the tree, it depends on the type of background, the type of fertilizer, the conditions of the lake, etc., and each person has a different way of playing, so they will also produce different colors.
