  AquaFertz.com: SUBSTRATE VITALIZATION SYSTEM

AquaFertz.com: SUBSTRATE VITALIZATION SYSTEM


 

Feed the roots, not the algae (like liquid fertilizers do).  Used as a complete system and/or with our exclusive: AquaDurt Freshwater Substrate, (and proper lighting etc), we guarantee total success of your planted aquarium.

(ask our tech guys if you have the proper lighting etc.) 

Aquarium plants require certain essential nutrients, besides a source of carbon dioxide, to produce and maintain green foliage and strong roots. Without proper fertilization, aquarium plants gradually turn yellow, drop leaves, and eventually die. AquaFertz.com: "Substrate Vitalization System"  is formulated to supply plants with Macro and Micro Nutrients at your plants root zone where they belong.
AquaFertz Substrate Vitalization System helps new plants get a vigorous start and keep established plants flourishing.   The Substrate Vitalizer System  can actually be used to replenish all of the nutrients in a worn-out substrate in place , making  substrate replacement  unnecessary.
 
EXTRA INFORMATION:
Here are some common
misconceptions or misguided theories about aquarium plants and nutrients:
-I don't need to add nutrients because I have fish in my tank and they produce adequate nutrients for the plants...WRONG
-I don't need to add nutrients because I am using "Eco-complete or Flourite or Laterite as a substrate...WRONG
-I don't need to add nutrients "at the roots" because I am using a liquid fertilizer in the water...WRONG
-Rooted Aquarium plants can absorb all the nutrients they need through their leaves WRONG
-Now that my tank is looking  the way Ive always wanted it to, my substrate is running out of nutrients so Ill have to break it down and start all over .WRONG

BASIC PLANT FACTS:  Why aquatic plants flourish in the wild and how we can cause them to flourish in our Aquarium Gardens

The feedback coming in has been incredible...
TESTIMONIAL:

"Just wanted to let you know your  system is the only  injectable substrate nutrient system that Ive ever tried.  WOW, it really works!!!!!  
Im ordering two more batches just to have them on hand. Between the great plants you sold me and this system, my tank is as close to perfect as I've ever had it.   NO algae. Lush growth.   The Hydrocotyle leucocephala you sold me is going nuts. I have some H. vulgaris doing the same. . Anyway, thanks for a product that works BETTER than I had hoped.   I've bought plants and supplies through just about very body on the net, and you guys are as good as it gets."

AquaFertz.com Substrate Pellets are specifically formulated and engineered to work as part of the AquaDurt.com Super Substrate System.    AquaDurt.com Super Substrate is a fired fractured clay substrate engineered specifically to work with AquaFertz.com Substrate Pellets.   Each substrate granule is covered with micro porous surface factures.    AquaFertz.com Substrate Pellets are engineered to expand between the substrate granules and also into the fractured matrix of the substrate granules surfaces after injection.    This adds natural chelation and holds the nutrients tightly in place at your plants roots for a gradual timed release.

  • SUPER CONCENTRATE (LIQUID)

Directions:   Depending on how heavily planted your aquarium is:  1-2 drops per 10 gallons of water 1-2 times per week.  If you see any signs of algae, then discontinue use.

  • IRON SUBSTRATE PELLETS

Iron Pellets provide essential Chelated Iron for accelerated growth and greening of tropical Aquarium Plants.  Iron is precision chelated to assure effective uptake by plants.   Use Iron Pellets when plants are observed to be growing in the meristem (growth zones) but dying in older parts of the plant or when general yellowing is observed.    

Directions:      Inject one pellet under a single plant or group of plants within an area of  3in by 3in square.     Inject no more than 1 pellet per each  3in by 3in area of aquarium bottom in 45 days.   Plants should be growing in at least 3in of substrate.   With the injector angled at least 30 degrees off vertical, inject pellets into the substrate to about 1/2in under the plant root area.   Periodically sample aquarium free water, if iron level goes over 3 ppm inject no addition pellets until iron level drops to 1.5 ppm or less.  

Chemically Active Ingredients:  Iron  (Chelating Agent: FeEthylenetiaminepentraacetic acid)  

Physically Active Ingredients:   Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3)   Magnesium Carbonate (MgCO3)   Calcium Carbonate Equivalent (CaCO3)   Calcium Sulfate (CaSO42H2O)

  • TRACE  PELLETS

Trace Pellets provide all essential micronutrients for luxuriant Aquarium Plant Growth.    Essential micronutrients are chelated to assure effective uptake by plants.   Apply Trace Pellets when plants are observed to be growing well but display transparency in the leaves, blotches, spots, deformed growth, ragged edges, sclerosis (dead or clear areas between leaf veins), or other hard to diagnose symptoms.   

Directions:      Inject one pellet under a single plant or group of plants within an area of  3in by 3in square.     Inject no more than 1 pellet per each 3in by 3in area of aquarium bottom per month.   Plants should be growing in at least 3in of substrate.   With the injector angled at least 30 degrees off vertical, inject pellets into the substrate to about 1/2in under the plant root area. 

Chemically Active Ingredients:   trace amounts of;  Cobalt EDTA, Copper EDTA,  Iron EDTA,  Magnesium EDTA,  Zinc EDTA,  Manganese sulfate,  Sodium Borate, Sodium Molybdate,   (Chelating Agent: Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid)

Incredible product at an amazing price. May 13, 2013
Reviewer: Larf Revonok from McHenry, IL United States  
I've been using the TOTAL pellets for a few weeks now and I'm shocked at the results. I've used SeaChem products for a long time and I truly love them, but this seems to be much more cost effective and functional. You will see almost instant improvements in your plants color, growth, and overall health. By the first week you will SEE the difference. I highly reccomend purchasing the pellet applicator as well, it's a simple tool but you will thank yourself for it.

Aqua Fertz Total Substrate Pellets March 23, 2013
Reviewer: Anthony Tartaglia from Medford, NY United States  
It's been one week since I used the Total Substrate Pellets and all I can say is WOW, this stuff really works well, my plants never looked so good. Everything is growing like crazy and I've never seen my plants so green before. I highly recommend this product, oh and definitely purchase the pellet applicator it makes it so much easier to push the pellets below the soil.

Stop searching! This IS the best ferts out there! November 25, 2012
Reviewer: Daniel Smith from Lexington, SC United States  
I recently started my first planted tank, and it's loaded with plants. They all came from aquariumplants.com, and when they arrived I have to be honest, I was a little disappointed in some of the plants, because they were either mush or just butchered up. BUT- after I trimmed the roots and pruned all the dead parts off of them and got them planted and put in the ferts, after a week the plants I thought that were sent to their graves literally shot up (like 5 inches!) and had SO much more color. Like my ludwigia- it was mush and not even green when I planted it. Now it has grown crazy and has so much red color! I am constantly trimming it! I use TOTAL, IRON, and PHOSPHATE. I use Flouish Excel for C02 also. Oh- and get a pellet applicator! I have a 2 foot tall tank and I would have punched myself if I didn't get one of those miracle workers. They are easy to use and I don't have to stick my arm up to my armpits in water to shove some pellets under the substrate. So yeah, it's great!!

Great stuff May 22, 2011
Reviewer: Huw Powell from Lee, NH United States  
My first batch of plants 4 months ago was showing signs of attrition - amazon sword growing smaller, lighter-colored leaves, jungle vals growing but lighter, almost yellow leaves.  So I knew I needed to give them at least some iron and probably more.  I started with a bottle of Total and one of iron, and a 24" insertion tool. put about 30 and 15 respectively in my 75g, and within two weeks I could see a difference - the sword was growing greener, longer, narrower leaves, and the vals were also greening up nicely. Here 3 months later the sword (and another I bought, and their babies) are still slowly getting bigger.

Moral of the story: buy  your fertilizer from the people who grow plants for a living!
