CORALINE™

CORALine™ - Natural dramatic colors and textures combined with pH support characterize our Coraline™ and Seaflor™ products.

Consider the Coraline™ products in brackish or Cichlid aquariums (Central American or African). Seaflor™ Puka Shell substrates are great additions to fine sands in reef tanks where animals make their homes by burrowing in the substrate. Jawfish, blennies and burrowing crustaceans will especially appreciate the extra “construction material.” Our substrates are purposely engineered and free of impurities such as ash, metals, pesticides, and silica; which allows you to create a safe and beautiful environment for your fish and invertebrates. Precision grading makes system design a breeze!

Betta Leaf™ and Jungle Leaf™

BETTA LEAF™ AND JUNGLE LEAF™

Indian or Tropical Almond leaves, also known as Catappa or Ketapang leaves are used by fish breeders worldwide to recreate the natural environment of tropical fish and invertebrates such as bettas, tetras, corys, angelfish, discus, freshwater shrimp and other species that come from soft-water jungle or rice paddy habitats. The natural tannins released by these unusual leaves are touted for their many health and biological benefits, and the “soft cover” created by these leaves give your tropicals shelter similar to what would be found in their native ecosystem. These leaves can also be used as a forest floor substrate for arthropods, tropical reptiles and amphibians. Betta Leaf™ and the somewhat larger Jungle Leaf™ are the perfect addition to your tropical environment.

Betta Leaf™ is available as:
3 leaf packs; UPC: 0 08479 00650 9

BioMagnet™

BIOMAGNET™

Cloudy water is caused by fine suspended particles. BioMagnet™ imparts a positive electrical charge and quickly seeks out and encapsulates the suspended particles, enabling the positively charged particles to be drawn to the filter. Particles caught in the filter are broken down by bacteria, and suspended bacteria are now repositioned onto strata where they are most efficient. The result? Crystal clear water, fast… and a better biological filter!

Non-nutritive, no sugars, and no EDTA's

New CoralUp™ and CoralUp™ B are an innovative new way to grow and maintain a healthy and vibrant reef tank. The unequaled performance of the patented PurpleUp™ recipe, but with a trace element composition that includes ionic strontium and magnesium, in addition to 10 micron solid phase aragonite crystals meta-stable at a pH of 8.2, all specifically geared to scleractinian skeletal growth. And CoralUp™ B, used in a 2:1 ratio to CoralUp™, provides the alkalinity and pH support. Why 2:1? Because CoralUp™ is so concentrated with calcium it requires twice the alkalinity to balance. With CoralUp’s™ unique dual method approach to calcium supplementation, (both ionic and high surface area, highly concentrated mineral phase) this formula allows you to add nearly three times the calcium of other brands without over dosing, and while growing coral in a more natural , ocean-like pH, calcium, and alkalinity environment. The solid phase not only caters to the slime coat feeding method, but serves as a regulator and monitor of water chemistry by the continual dissolution and re-equilibrating of carbonate crystals as mandated by pH and ionic concentration. The days of unstable “on the edge” water chemistry are over. It’s time for something truly revolutionary in reef keeping, CoralUp™ and CoralUp™ B.

Instant Amazon™

INSTANT AMAZON™

Instant Amazon™ Blackwater Solution brings the jungle right to your aquarium. The natural tannins recreate the ideal and natural conditions found in the world’s tropical waters, created by slowing decaying vegetation such as leaves, peats, and soils. Blackwater conditions may be found in the deep jungle Amazon and Orinoco basins, the Congo River basin and its tributaries including the Oubangui, the Indian Subcontinent, Indonesia, including Borneo, ephemeral jungle ponds and puddles, and the southern United States in seasonally flooded forests and mangrove surrounded brackish tide pools and creeks. Consequently, Instant Amazon™ is ideal for those soft water inhabitants such as discus, bettas, tetras, corys, angelfish, gouramis, arowanas, barbs, and freshwater shrimp.

Instant Amazon™ is available as:
8 ounce bottles; UPC: 0 08479 08541 2

Betta Leaf™ and Jungle Leaf™

BETTA LEAF™ AND JUNGLE LEAF™

Indian or Tropical Almond leaves, also known as Catappa or Ketapang leaves are used by fish breeders worldwide to recreate the natural environment of tropical fish and invertebrates such as bettas, tetras, corys, angelfish, discus, freshwater shrimp and other species that come from soft-water jungle or rice paddy habitats. The natural tannins released by these unusual leaves are touted for their many health and biological benefits, and the “soft cover” created by these leaves give your tropicals shelter similar to what would be found in their native ecosystem. These leaves can also be used as a forest floor substrate for arthropods, tropical reptiles and amphibians. Betta Leaf™ and the somewhat larger Jungle Leaf™ are the perfect addition to your tropical environment.

Betta Leaf™ is available as:
3 leaf packs; UPC: 0 08479 00650 9
Jungle Leaf™ is available as:
3 leaf packs; UPC: 0 08479 00651 6

PurpleUp™

PURPLEUP™

 
Coralline Algae Growth Supplement

Non-nutritive, no sugars, and no EDTA's

PurpleUp™ - uses a unique dual method approach to coralline algae acceleration. This approach is so unique that PurpleUp™ has been awarded a US patent (US patent No. 7,565,883). It contains ionic calcium; which immediately raises dissolved calcium levels in your aquarium water. At the same time Super Sea Calcium™ (a 10 micron aragonite powder derived from natural seawater) targets the live rock surface. This dissolves in situ; delivering calcium, strontium, magnesium, and carbonate right where it’s needed. PurpleUp™ also replenishes iodine; an essential element for coralline algae tissues that quickly becomes depleted in closed systems. PurpleUp™ is not a fertilizer, it does not promote the growth of nuisance algae.

RhyzoMat™

RHYZOMAT™

Rhyzomats are a unique natural fiber mat perfect for aquariums with plants. Even a few plants in an aquarium make for a healthier and more beautiful tank environment, but troublesome “floaters” can make it difficult to maintain. Simply place a Rhyzomat down first, then add the substrate on top. The all natural fiber mat helps to anchor plants by their roots, and keep them in the substrate as intended. But Rhyzomats offer so much more. The area of the substrate that roots inhabit is call the “rhizosphere”. This complex system is essential to plant health and root vigor, and may contain minerals, bacteria, clays, fungal symbionts and more. Rhyzomats are easier to manipulate than organic soils, and become the essential core of these advanced subsurface microhabitats. Rhyzomats are pH neutral, can also be used as a biological substrate and, if left somewhat exposed, a natural “soft cover” for freshwater invertebrates. Rhyzomats can be used with any sand or gravel. Whether you have one plant or one hundred, a Rhyzomat makes it easy. Available in 12 x 24”, or 12 x 12”. (Rhyzomats do not necessarily need to cover the entire bottom of the aquarium. Simply place them where you intend to have plants, such as the corners, or across the back. They can be cut or torn to size.)

RhyzoMat™ is available as:
12" x 12" mats; UPC: 0 08479 00786 5
