AF Natural Substrate

AF Natural Substrate is a nutrient rich, peat and clay based substrate base for aquascapes and planted aquariums. Readily available micronutrients and plant food within it create a fertile, nature-like environment, ideal for long-time plant support and growth. AF Natural Substrate is well suited for the development of a healthy root system, and to help aquatic plants thrive. Micronutrient contents have been supplemented under laboratory supervision to make sure that aquatic plants have an abundance of trace elements, while the chemical balance of the tank stays in check. AF Natural Substrate is rich in micronutrients, so for the first three months Aquaforest do not recommend the use of fertilizers containing micronutrients, unless the plants show visible signs of deficiency.

AF Lava Soil

AF Lava Soil is a natural substrate based on volcanic lava, which is enriched with essential minerals for plant growth. When used, it slowly releases the substances contained within it, feeding the plants. The substrate is pre-rinsed, but aquarium water may become cloudy for up to 12 hours after the product is added. This is natural and does not cause any side effects. After approximately 12 hours has passed, the turbidity should subside. Because Lava Soil is rich in minerals, we recommend that you carefully dispense other fertilizers for the first six months after being added. This will help to control an over accumulation of Micronutrients.

AF Iron Boost

Professional easily absorbable iron fertilizer for aquatic plants. Iron takes part in a variety of metabolic processes, and above all, it plays an important role in the synthesis of chlorophyll – green pigment. Its presence conditions efficiency of photosynthesis. Iron absorption is dependent on the macronutrient and micronutrient content, as well as the pH and the iron itself. A common problem in aquariums is iron deficiency because its form may not be absorbed by plants. Iron deficiency leads to disappearance of chlorophyll, and consequently development of chlorosis manifesting as leaf yellowing and necrosis. Optimal concentration of iron in aquarium water should be 0.1-1 mg/l. AF Iron Boost contains a concentrated dose of easily absorbable Fe2+ iron chelate for aquarium plants

AF K Boost

Professional easily absorbable potassium fertilizer for aquatic plants. An important building block, potassium participates in many biochemical reactions, where it acts as an enzyme activator. Also responsible for osmotic regulation and transport of compounds in the plant. Potassium deficiency is manifested by yellowing of edges and tops of the leaves, leading to necrosis in the later phase. Potassium concentration in the aquarium should be 10-20 mg/l. AF K Boost fully replenishes deficiencies of potassium, needed for aquatic plants. The formula is very quickly absorbed by the plants, thus the effects are visible within a short time of the application.

AF Macro

Highly concentrated formula containing macroelements essential for plants. This is a carefully selected and balanced composition containing nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium. Macronutrients are basic building blocks. They participate in formation of many cellular structures, proteins, and enzymes. In addition, they act as conveyors and accumulators of energy and form part of nucleic acids. Symptoms of deficiency, or excess of a particular ingredient depend on the specific function played in the plant. Normally, a deficiency of some macronutrient is manifested by inhibition of growth, growth of weakened shoots and discoloration of plant parts. The excess results in excessive growth, dark green leaves (in case of too much nitrogen), while the entire plant is weak and prone to damage. AF Macro is the basic fertilizer necessary for proper growth of aquarium plants. Description: Highly concentrated fertilizer containing macronutrients intended for aquarium plants. It is a composition of macronutrients necessary for proper growth and development of plants. Regular application ensures abundant growth, strong root system and proper appearance of the leaves.

Specially formulated preparation provides plants with essential elements such as copper, manganese, iron, molybdenum, zinc, and boron. Micronutrients participate in the process of chlorophyll formation, protein biosynthesis, and in many biochemical transformations. Deficiencies are manifested by disturbed photosynthetic activity, chlorosis and leaf deformation, and contribute to inhibition of growth and development. AF Micro is a perfectly absorbable composition of bioavailable elements which ensures healthy appearance of aquarium plants.

AF N Boost

Professional easily absorbable nitrogen fertilizer for aquatic plants. Nitrogen is one of the most important macronutrients necessary for plants. The presence of nitrogen influences growth of the plant, its propagation and green coloration of leaves. Proper supplementation of nitrogen is essential as both deficiency and excess may be detrimental to plants. Nitrogen deficiency causes growth inhibition, chlorosis and yellowing of the leaves, and further browning. The excess, on the other hand, is manifested by excessive growth, dark green leaves, while the plant is very delicate and less resistant to mechanical damage. The appropriate level of nitrate in the plant aquarium should be 10-20 mg/l. Nitrogen is absorbed by plants mainly in the form of nitrate and ammonium. AF N Boost contains mineral nitrogen forms that are well absorbed by aquatic plants.

AF PO4 Boost

Professional easily absorbable phosphorus fertilizer for aquatic plants. Phosphorus is a particularly important element for plants. A component of many types of proteins and enzymes, it also helps to build DNA. It is the main battery and energy conveyor in processes occurring within the cells. Phosphorus deficiencies are manifested by hindered plant growth and development, as well as leaf discoloration. The appropriate level of phosphates in the plant aquarium should be 0.5-1.5 mg/l. AF PO4 Boost is a formula which ensures the correct level of phosphate content in the aquarium.
