All plants need carbon to grow. Aquatic plants obtain their carbon through CO2 dissolved in water. With Liquid CO2 Boost, plants will grow more vigorously, removing algae-causing macronutrients such as nitrate and phosphate.
Use daily, or every other day, to provide plants with a regular and consistent supply of carbon.
reen water/algae caused by over feeding and fish waste is unsightly in an aquarium, and can be dangerous as it may alter the pH and oxygen levels. Algae Gone is a single-dose, plant-friendly treatment that will clarify the green or cloudy water in your aquarium. It works by clumping the minute particles together enabling your filter to strain them out.
Algae Gone will also help to lower algae- causing phosphate, thereby promoting a healthier aquatic environment. Use when the water has become green or cloudy.
Certain species of bacteria such as Pseudomonas, Aeromonas and Vibrio bacteria can infect fish internally, causing an array of symptoms.
Use when fish become lethargic, have clamped fins, stop eating and have red blotches on fins or under body.
Certain species of parasites such as Trichodina, Costia, Oodinium and flukes can cause fish to produce a whitish mucus layer, known as velvet or slime disease.
Use when fish appear to be covered in a whiteish film, have damaged fins, show signs of irritation or are gasping at the surface.
Certain species of bacteria such as Aeromonas and Pseudomonas cause fin, mouth and body tissue to be eaten away. Early diagnosis is essential to prevent the infection becoming fatal.
Use when fish have red wounds, ulcers, missing scales, red blotches, rotting fins or eroded mouth tissue.
White spot is a protozoan parasite; the adults live on the fish and appear as tiny white spots. The adult has a complex life cycle which results in hundreds of free-swimming juveniles looking for a host fish to infest.
Use when small white spots, like grains of salt, can be seen scattered on the body of the fish, if the fish are showing signs of irritation and rubbing on objects in the aquarium, fish have a grey, velvety film all over the body, or fish have white cotton wool-like growths on their body/mouth/ fins.
If left, fish waste will build up and become toxic. Filter Starter contains Bacillus megaterium, B. pumilis, B. licheniformis, Paenbacillius polymyxa, Nitrosomonas spp., Nitrobacter spp., and Nitrospira spp. These friendly filter bacteria break down fish waste, making the water safe for fish.
Add to a new aquarium to help kick-start the filter, when adding new fish, after a filter clean/water change, or after using a disease treatment.
When to use?
Symptoms of bacterial infections include: reddened wounds, ulcers, missing scales, eroded fins and/or mouth. White, sugar grain-sized spots covering the body indicate marine white spot (Cryptocaryon), while finer white spots are likely marine velvet (Oodinium). External parasites may also show scratching behaviour.
Anti-Bacterial contains powerful ingredients to kill bacteria. When used in conjunction with Marine Paratonical it is the best way of eradicating protozoan parasites in a reef aquarium where invertebrates are present.
When to use?
White, sugar grain-sized spots covering the body indicate marine white spot (Cryptocaryon), while finer white spots are symptoms of marine velvet (Oodinium). Both are protozoan parasite diseases and may cause the fish to rub themselves against rocks or other aquarium décor.
Anti-Parasite uses the tried-and-tested method of chelated copper therapy, boosted by the power of formalin to rapidly control these dangerous parasites. Anti-Parasite is a great choice for fish-only systems or hospital aquariums.
Stunted coral growth and the presence of unwanted algae is commonly an indicator of excessive phosphate in the water. Phosphate is a consequence of fish waste and while phosphate is essential for life, too much is detrimental. Phosphate is often also present in tap water, so can be inadvertently introduced during water changes.
Anti-Phos is a fast-acting, easy-to-use liquid formulation of lanthanum that rapidly detoxifies phosphate, removing it from the water. Anti-Phos should be used whenever high phosphate is detected and following water changes to remove phosphate found in tap water.
When to use?
Following use of Marine Anti-Bacterial, Marine Anti-Parasite or Marine Anti-Fluke & Wormer to support fish recovering from white spot (Cryptocaryon), marine velvet (Oodinium) or skin fluke infections (Gyrodactylus). Paratonical is also ideal for minor wounds and torn fins.
Paratonical is a unique blend of botanical extracts formulated to support the fish with their recovery. Marine Paratonical can be used in conjunction with other medications and can be safely used in the presence of invertebrates.
When to use?
Fish use their swimbladder for buoyancy and stability. When it becomes infected with Aeromonas or Pseudomonas bacteria, it can cause stress, which may result in death.
Use when fish become lethargic, have clamped fins, are unstable in the water, hanging at the surface or lying on the bottom.
Scratching behaviour without signs of white spot may indicate marine skin flukes. Symptoms may also include lethargy and reddened fins. Fish losing weight, giving a pinched in appearance, while still having a good appetite is an indicator of internal worms. Clear faeces from a fishs vent may also be present.
Anti-Fluke & Wormer contains the active ingredient flubendazole, which is exceptionally effective against internal worms and flukes whilst also being very mild on the fish. Marine Anti-Fluke & Wormer is an easy-to-use suspension for fish-only systems or hospital aquariums.
Fish (especially Discus species) are susceptible to internal worms. An obvious sign is when fish become very thin but still continue to feed.
Use when fish become lethargic, fins are clamped, thin looking, gasping and showing signs of rubbing/irritation.

Catappa leaves have been widely used in aquariums in Asian countries for a long time already. Owners and breeders of various fish and animals such as fighting fish, discus, shrimp, crawfish and pecostomus use the leaves for the treatment of bacterial ailments, and also to heal injuries of fish, such as bites or transportation wounds. The risk of wound infections is tremendously decreased when our catappa leaves are being used. The mucous membranes are strengthened.
It is remarkable that bacteria useful to the aquarium are verifiably not impaired when catappa leaves are being used.
When transporting fish, it is strongly recommended to add catappa leaves or a small piece of catappa bark to the water used. This decreases the susceptibility and stress significantly which the animals experience from high concentrations of bacteria.
When it comes to breeding, catappa leaves help promote the mating disposition of your fish, and reduce spawn fungi. By releasing humic acids and tanning agents, catappa leaves create a natural surrounding and increase the vitality and well-being of your aquarium occupants.
Whitespot, Oodinium, Benedenia, Trichodina and fungal infections are amongst the fastest killing organisms in seawater aquaria and therefore, once recognised should be treated immediately. With this in mind you are advised, when unsure of an ailments diagnostic background to automatically use Cuprazin as
directed. Cuprazins formula is designed to be low stress-inducing, gradually compounding doses
to effective levels. Once this level is achieved, addition of the product may be stopped. Cuprazin should be used to treat all newly purchased sea fishes except sharks, rays, Harlequin Tuskfish, invertebrates, live rock, algae and related species. In cases where these creatures are present use Octozin for
protozoa. Cuprazin should not be used in those systems which contain any invertebrates. This includes crustaceans. Suitable for seawater and brackishwater aquaria.
