The Söchting doser ensures evenly dosed fertilization of your aquarium plants. But why is the uniform fertilization for your aquarium plants so important?
Even aquarium plants need nutrients, they are absorbed by roots and leaf surfaces. Especially for the formation of the absolutely necessary for the photo-synthesis chlorophyll (green plant pigment) are essential in the water dissolved iron ions. Straight but they are precipitated quickly in necessary for fish oxygen-rich water. For this reason, iron ions must be fed continuously in a body of water in which both fish and plants are to thrive.
In fresh water may low oxygen levels can be caused by iron remaining in solution. In the aquarium, however, a constant dose of fertilizer is required. Since dissolved iron is harmful in high concentrations, it should be dosed as often and as evenly as possible.
This is achieved with the Söchting Dosator by automatically continuously and uniformly dosing a solution with iron ions. Even a small flow, as for example, is generated by the filter, aerators or heater, distributes the fertilizer throughout the aquarium. The Söchting special fertilizer contains, both iron and manganese ions, which are essential as catalysts for the formation of chlorophyll, as well as potassium and magnesium ions which are important building blocks of plant cells.
