4kg bag of Dymax Natural Black Sand offers a natural and stylish looking substrate for your aquarium. The grains are 2-3mm, making for a finer but not overly fine substrate. Sand substrates are great for a fish only aquariums, serving the purpose of providing a surface for the beneficial bacteria to build colonies. With todays filter technology, the size of the gravel does not really matter, but it is recommended to use a finer gravel if bottom feeders are home in the tank. The substrate should be about 5-6.5cm in height (or depth) 2 – 2.5 inches in the base of the tank (which is roughly 4kg of substrate for approximately 380 square centimeters of tank surface. Please note: deeper layers especially with finer gravel sizes can pose a danger, given that food particles will sink into a less oxygenated area. This will over time produce hydrogen sulfite (rotten egg smell), which is highly toxic for the fish. ALL Sand should be carefully washed before use.

Seachem PhosguardRegular price Dhs. 35.00 Save Dhs. -35.00
Seachem PhosGuard rapidly removes phosphate and silicate from marine and freshwater aquaria. Although PhosGuard is effective in both fresh and marine water, it will operate better in sea water and the need for it is better defined in sea water. It is not recommended for phosphate buffered freshwater (PhosGuard would remove the buffer until saturated). PhosGuard is highly porous and bead-shaped to promote easy water ﬂow through and around it, thereby increasing both its efficiency and capacity.
Directions: May generate heat on initial contact with water. Pre-wet by adding to a double volume of freshwater, followed by a rinse. For best results, PhosGuard should be rinsed before use and placed so as to maximize the flow of water through it but not so that it tumbles against itself in flow. It may be used in a canister filter, media chamber, box filter, or any high flow area of a trickle filter. Use of a filter bag is recommended. Use 85 mL (1/3 cup) for every 200 L (50 US gallons) saltwater or 400 L (100 US gallons) freshwater. Leave product in place for 4 days, then test phosphate or silicate concentrations with either MultiTest Phosphate or MultiTest Silicate. If the concentration of the component you are trying to decrease has not dropped to around 0.02 mg/L, then replace the PhosGuard, otherwise leave in place until levels begin to climb again. As long as concentrations remain under control, the product is not exhausted. Over treating is not recommended. PhosGuard is not an exchange resin and does not release anything into the water. It does not leach phosphate or silicate back into the water and may be removed, dried, and returned to service until exhausted. Continuous use of small quantities is better than intermittent use of larger quantities.
Seachem Gold Salt (300g)Regular price Dhs. 42.00 Save Dhs. -42.00
Seachem Gold Salt is designed to provide the optimal environment for all goldfish species. The use of Gold Salt also aids in the prevention of nitrite poisoning. The salt is also well suited for routine aquarium freshwater use. It does not impact pH or provide buffering. For pH control use Gold Buffer. For dechlorination use Gold Basics. For further goldfish environment enhancement, use Gold Trace to restore the proper level of trace elements and feed NutriDiet Goldfish Flakes for thriving, healthy goldfish.
Directions: Use 18 g (1 tablespoon) for each 40 L (10 US gallons). Use when setting up an aquarium and when making water changes. To add salt to an established tank, do so gradually. It is best to dissolve the salt in a small amount of freshwater before use. Avoid using salt when replacing evaporated water.
Seachem Flourish AdvanceRegular price Dhs. 50.50 Save Dhs. -50.50
Seachem Flourish Advance is an all-natural, biologic growth enhancer for aquatic plants. Its advanced formula contains phytohormones, minerals, and nutrients that dramatically stimulate the growth of both roots and shoots in aquatic plants. Phytohormones are a group of naturally occurring compounds that play crucial roles in regulating plant growth in a wide range of developmental processes, including cell division, formation and activity of shoot meristems, induction of photosynthesis gene expression, leaf senescence, nutrient mobilization, seed germination, root growth and stress response. Used regularly, it also enhances mineral absorption and improves disease resistance. It is non-toxic and completely safe for all plant varieties as well as for fish and aquatic organisms. During the first ten to fourteen days after application, Flourish Advance works to stimulate root growth beneath the surface. After this initial induction period, significantly enhanced growth in the leaves and stems of the plants will occur.
Directions: Shake well before use. Use 1 capful (5 mL) for every 80 L (20 US gallons). Dose daily or as required to maintain plant growth.
JBL Sansibar - Grey (5kg)Regular price Dhs. 60.00 Save Dhs. -60.00
JBL Sansibar GREY is an uncoloured grey, fine substrate for freshwater and saltwater aquariums and also suitable for aqua-terrariums with an approximate grain size of 0.2 - 0.6 mm. Vigorous plant growth: prevents the seeping in of sludge and other waste material with its fine granulation and density. Prevents injuries of the mucous membrane: fine, round-shaped natural sand is gentle on sensitive barbels. Ideal for grubbing fish, such as armoured catfish and loaches. Ideal for fish, invertebrates and plants: no unwanted pollutants released into the water. Not fully suitable for undergravel heating cables.
To Use: Rinse the substrate with tap water to remove any abrasion caused in transit. Put substrate on the nutrient substrate (JBL AquaBasis) to promote the plant growth (for vigorous growth about 6-8 cm).
Calculation formula: The right amount of substrate: length (cm) x width (cm) : 140 = kg substrate with 5 cm thickness.
JBL ProScape ShrimpsSoil - BrownRegular price Dhs. 226.00 Save Dhs. -226.00
JBL ProScape ShrimpsSoil - Brown is a brown colour aquascaping substrate for shrimp aquariums. Softening effect makes it especially suitable for shrimps and other animals which prefer soft water.Thriving plant growth: ideal oxygen supply and circulation in the substrate thanks to medium grain size. Immediate supply of nutrients and minerals.
Tropical water values: slightly acidic pH values and low carbonate hardness. Reduces water hardness – water becomes soft.
Rinse the substrate briefly under tap water to wash away any abrasion caused in transport. To avoid accumulation of minerals in the water, carry out a 50 % water change every 2 to 3 days in the first two weeks after filling. The softening effect decreases in the course of time because the influence of the water values depend on the input water values and the intervals between the water changes.

Seachem Flourish Potassium (250ml)Regular price Dhs. 42.00 Save Dhs. -42.00
Seachem Flourish Potassium contains 50,000 mg/L of potassium suitable for the natural planted aquarium. Potassium is one of several elements that are vitally important to maintaining a vigorous level of growth in a planted aquarium. Potassium can become depleted in a rapidly growing system or when the source water has a low mineral content. In these cases potassium could become the limiting factor to growth. Use Flourish Potassium to prevent potassium depletion (signs of which include yellowing in older leaves) and maintain the highest level of growth.
The most easily obtained sources of potassium are potassium nitrate and potassium phosphate. Both of these sources add to either nitrogen or phosphorus as well as potassium, making it virtually impossible to target a specific NPK ratio. Flourish Potassium is derived from potassium sulfate, allowing the user to adjust potassium levels without affecting nitrogen or phosphorus.
Directions: Use 1 capful (5 mL) for every 125 L (30 US gallons). This dose raises potassium by 2 mg/L. Repeat 2–3 times per week or as needed in response to signs of potassium deficiency in older leaves which include: chlorosis (yellowing), necrosis (death/browning), pinholes in leaves, and weak stems and roots.
Seachem Flourish Nitrogen (250ml)Regular price Dhs. 42.00 Sale price Dhs. 30.00 Save Dhs. 12.00
Nitrogen is one of the main three macro nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium: NPK) required by plants and can often become the limiting factor to growth in a flourishing system. Seachem Flourish Nitrogen is a concentrated (15,000 mg/L) blend of nitrogen sources. It provides nitrogen in both the nitrate form and the plant–preferred ammonium form. However, no free ammonia is released because the ammonium in Flourish Nitrogen is complexed and unavailable until utilized by the plants. Ammonium becomes available after conversion of urea (carbamide). Flourish Nitrogen also provides nitrate for those plants that can readily utilize nitrate as well. For maximum benefit, use with Flourish Phosphorus and Flourish Potassium. Flourish Nitrogen is safe for invertebrates such as shrimp.
Use 2.5 mL (half a cap) for each 160 L (40 US gallons) twice a week or as needed in response to signs of nitrogen deficiency (e.g. stunted growth, chlorosis). For smaller doses, please note that each cap thread is approximately 1 mL.
The beginner dose raises nitrogen by the same degree that 1 mg/L nitrate would. This dose is sufficient to provide approximately 4 g of growth (dry) or about 20 g (hydrated) over a 1 month period (assuming all other necessary nutrients are provided). For increased growth use proportionately more.
To target a specific nitrogen increase, dose according to the following formula: 0.25vn=m, where v= volume of tank in gallons, n=desired nitrogen increase (if using a “nitrate equivalent” value for “n” then use a factor of 0.05 instead of 0.25 in the formula) and m=volume of product to use in mL. For example to raise 20 gallons by 0.20 mg/L nitrogen you would use: 0.25*20*0.20=1 mL.
Because one-half of the nitrogen in Flourish Nitrogen is from nitrate you can get a reasonable estimate of nitrogen levels by doubling a nitrate reading.
