Many nutrients required for healthy plant growth are not present in the aquarium. An aquarium is an ‘artificial’ environment and therefore differs from the conditions that plants and fish are used to in the wild. PRO-PHYLL is a unique combination of nutrients and fertilisers for freshwater aquatic plants, specially formulated to improve plant growth, colour and condition. PRO-PHYLL provides your plants with the nutrients they need and are used to in the wild and has been specially formulated for easy adsorption by plants through their leaves and roots.

PRO-PHYLL should be used regularly to prevent nutrient depletion and ensure quick growth of healthy green plants. Quick growing green plants such as Nomaphila stricta, Cabomba, Vallisneria, etc. can produce small, pale leaves. Use PRO-PHYLL to promote lush leaves and strong vegetation yet maintain rapid plant growth. PRO-PHYLL can also be used if your plants suffer from poor growth, lack of green leaf colour (chlorophyll), and pale or slimy leaves. PRO-PHYLL effectively raises new or young plants whilst maintaining healthy mature vegetation.

PRO-PHYLL provides your plants with the nutrients they need and are used to in the wild. PRO-PHYLL has been specially formulated for easy absorption by plants through their leaves and roots.

A summary of PRO-PHYLL’s benefits:

  • Quick growth of lush green leaves;
  • Prevents nutrient depletion;
  • Ensures fully formed leaves.
  • You can use PRO-PHYLL in freshwater aquariums with ornamental fish.
  • PRO-PHYLL is very well tolerated by fish, plants and filters.

PRO-PHYLL is safe for use with all freshwater aquatic plants, fish, snails, shrimp and filter media. It is nitrate free, so it will not encourage algae growth. It is beneficial to dose PRO-PHYLL after completing your regular water change.

Filtering
You may continue to filter over non-adsorbing materials such as filter-wool, sand, gravel, etc. Always remove chemical ‘active’ filter media such as (fresh) activated carbon, UV (lights), oxidisers, resins and protein skimmers, as these can have a negative influence on the action of PRO-PHYLL. Keep filters running day and night.

Overdosing
Overdosing is not recommended, however, PRO-PHYLL remains non-toxic (under normal conditions) if more than the recommended dose is accidentally added.

Other treatments (from other manufacturers)
Never combine treatments unless the manufacturer specifically states that it is safe to do so.

It is generally not necessary to do a water change before or after using PRO-PHYLL. However, there are a few exceptions where a partial water change should be carried out before treating the aquarium:

  1. In the case of poor water quality. Regular testing with eSHa AQUA-QUICK-TEST can identify water quality problems in time to take corrective action when needed;
  2. If you are close to your regular water change;
  1. For optimal plant growth it is recommended to use a weekly or – even better – a daily dose of PRO-PHYLL. It is beneficial to dose PRO-PHYLL after completing your regular water change. Calculate the volume of your aquarium (only the area occupied by water). You can use the Dosage Calculator to calculate the correct dosage.
  2. Add drops of PRO-PHYLL to your aquarium by holding the bottle upside down and squeezing the pipette (20 drops = 1 ml).

PRO-PHYLL can be used with all other eSHa freshwater products. We highly recommend using PRO-PHYLL with CRYPTO-PLUS and eSHa OPTIMA for excellent results!

You may notice a flake-like sediment forming in your bottle of PRO-PHYLL. This can form under certain conditions, because PRO-PHYLL contains no artificial preservatives. The sediment is a natural compound, is totally harmless and will not affect the performance of PRO-PHYLL. The sediment dissolves harmlessly in you aquarium.

A flourishing, planted aquarium looks beautiful and encourages your fish to display their natural colours. Your fish will be happier in a healthy planted aquarium, as many fish are used to plants in the wild. Plants provide them with essential ‘hiding-places’. Plants help maintain a healthy biological balance by producing oxygen and using up carbon dioxide (the bi-product of fish respiration) during photosynthesis. Plants also absorb ammonia / nitrates and help suppress algae, which would otherwise be detrimental for your fish.

Approximately 70% of aquarium plants draw their required nutrients directly out of the water through their leaves. The main function of the roots is to serve as an anchor in the soil. Plants need sufficient light (approx. 2 watt/dm2), minerals and salts to grow properly. The growth of plants is dependent on what nutrients are available and the lack of one or more nutrients leads to pale colours, insufficient leaf development and general poor health. Most plants need the same growth materials in similar proportions and PRO-PHYLL provides a comprehensive package of nutrients for a wide range of aquatic plants.

ATTENTION: BE AWARE!

In case you do not have a normal aquarium, you have to adjust the dosage accordingly. For example, if you have large amounts of rocks, stones or other deco material, the dosage needs to be decreased. If you have an oversized external filter the dosage needs to be increased.

ATTENTION:

Your aquarium is smaller than 30 liters, this is smaller than the average aquarium, please check your parameters. If your parameters are correct, you can continue calculating your dosage.

ATTENTION:

Your aquarium is larger than 300 liters, this is larger than the average aquarium, please check your parameters. If your parameters are correct, you can continue calculating your dosage.
