Dymax Natural Black Sand GravelRegular price Dhs. 20.00 Save Dhs. -20.00
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 de-nitrateRegular price Dhs. 42.00 Save Dhs. -42.00
Seachem de❊nitrate is an economical, natural, porous material with a pore distribution and geometry that promotes both aerobic nitrification within the first few millimeters of depth and anaerobic denitrification at the core. The material has a high surface area and supports a high density of bacteria. Although de❊nitrate has capacity to trap nitrate, this, as with other nitrate retaining materials, such as certain zeolites and synthetic resins, is quite limited and the primary mechanism of nitrate removal is anaerobic. “Live” rocks or reef rocks remove nitrate by anaerobic denitrification. de❊nitrate removes nitrate by the same process. Efficiency is magnified several folds by forcing the water to filter through the porous de❊nitrate. As with reef rock, anaerobic conditions are achieved by the porosity and the depletion of oxygen by the aerobic process at the surface. Excessive flow rates should, therefore, be avoided, as they may impede development of an adequate anaerobic environment to support denitrifying bacteria. de❊nitrate is also an excellent media for aerobic nitrification and it makes an ideal biological filter in drip trays, canister filters, sumps, or even box filters. At high flow rates (greater than 100 US gallons per hour), it will function solely as an aerobic filter. At slow flow rates (less than 50 US gallons per hour), it will function as both an aerobic filter and an anaerobic denitrifying filter.
Directions: For best results, de❊nitrate should be placed to assure the flow of water through it, such as in a canister filter, chemical filtration module, or box filter. Flow rate should not exceed 200 L (50 US gallons) per hour. If higher flow rates are unavoidable, use Matrix or Pond Matrix. It is best to rinse off dust before use. Once de❊nitrate has been in use for several days, nitrate concentrations should start to fall and level off gradually at a concentration of about 4–5 mg/L as nitrate. As long as nitrate concentrations remain under control, the product is not exhausted. Each 500 mL of de❊nitrate treats about 100–200 L (25–50 US gallons), depending on initial nitrate concentration and the current biological load. Enough should be used to remove nitrate at a rate at least as fast as the rate of formation. If very high nitrates are initially present, they should be brought down to less than 20 mg/L with water changes.
Seachem SafeRegular price Dhs. 72.50 Save Dhs. -72.50
Seachem Safe is the complete and super-concentrated dry conditioner for both fresh and salt water. Safe removes chlorine, chloramine and detoxifies ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate. It is non-acidic and will not impact pH. A further bonus for the reef hobbyist—Safe will not over-activate skimmers. Safe may be used during tank cycling to alleviate ammonia/nitrite toxicity. It contains a binder which renders ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate non-toxic, allowing the biofilter to more efficiently remove them. Use at start-up and whenever adding or replacing water. When transporting or quarantining fish, use Seachem StressGuard. When adding new fish, use Stability. Both are ideal for use with Safe.
Use 1.25 g (1/4 tsp.) for every 1,250 L (300 US gallons) as needed to reduce chlorine and chloramine or use 1.25 g (1/4 tsp.) for every 300 L (75 US gallons) for ammonia. For precise dosing, use the Seachem Digital Spoon Scale.
NOTE: These directions supersede all other prior packaging. May be added to aquarium directly, but better if added to new water first. If adding directly to aquarium, base dose on aquarium volume. For exceptionally high chloramine concentrations, a double dose may be used safely. To detoxify nitrite and nitrate in an emergency, up to 4 times normal dose may be used. If temperature is > 30 °C (86 °F) and chlorine or ammonia levels are low, use a half dose.
Dymax Crystal Lily Pipe with Surface SkimmerRegular price Dhs. 319.00 Save Dhs. -319.00
This Dymax Crystal Lily Pipe with Surface Skimmer is made of high quality, super clear crystal glass. The transparency of these glass lily pipes is a favourite among aquarists as they gives superb appearance to the planted aquarium (they can hardly be seen in comparison to their stainless steel counterparts. These Dymax Crystal Lily Pipe with Surface Skimmer feature a 360-degree inflow design which allows water flow through from all directions without clogging and provides convenience in cleaning. The surface dirt is also effectively removed by the surface skimmer. The package includes 1x Crystal glass surface skimmer inflow, 1x Crystal glass outflow pipe, 2 x Acrylic suction holders for mounting to the side of the tank. Lily pipes were designed to provide increased water movement in the lower parts of the aquarium where water can easily become stagnant. The reason lily pipes are especially loved by aquarists is their ability to aerate the surface film on the water with a simple whirlpool effect; all this without causing excessive loss of Co2.
Seachem PristineRegular price Dhs. 31.50 Save Dhs. -31.50
Seachem Pristine uses bio-augmentation, a non-chemical and natural method, to improve water quality. It provides bacteria that break down excess food, waste and detritus in freshwater and marine systems. It will also reduce excess nutrients (e.g. ammonia, nitrates, and nitrites) that may fuel the growth of nuisance and disease-causing organisms. Pristine increases water clarity and promotes overall better health for the aquatic environment.
The species of bacteria in Pristine are a unique blend, specifically developed for hardiness and their ability to adapt to a wide variety of environmental conditions.
The bacteria species in Pristine thrive in fresh or salt water and can utilize a wide range of organic compounds, including fats that can cause unsightly films. Unlike traditional nitrifying bacteria, this bacterial blend can adapt to harsh or low oxygen environments and continue to multiply and improve water conditions. Biopolymers produced by established bacterial colonies trap particulates and increase water clarity.
Directions: Shake well before use. Turn off UV/ozone. Use 1 capful (5 mL) for each 40 L (10 US gallons). Then use a maintenance dose of 1 capful (5 mL) per 80 L (20 US gallons) with additions of livestock or the disruption of the biofilter through cleaning or medications. Antibiotics should be removed with fresh carbon and a water change before adding bacteria. Allow 2 or 3 days for the bacteria to become established before using UV sterilizers or ozone. Recurring problems with high nutrients can indicate overstocking, overfeeding or inadequate filtration.
Product shelf life is 4 years from date of manufacture.

Dymax CO2 Glass AtomizerRegular price Dhs. 41.00 Save Dhs. -41.00
Dymax CO2 Glass Atomizer is made of highly crystal clear material with a high quality ceramic disc to provide optimum diffusion of CO2. It is a durable atomizer and compact in size and thus easy to install. It should be place at the bottom of the tank in order to obtain its optimum result. When the ceramic disc is blocked, simply soak it into bleach water for 3 to 5 minutes then rinse with tap water and re-use again. This is the most conventional type of in-tank diffuser; effective if used properly. Ideally, you should aim to achieve a fine stream of mist. Requires more servicing than inline devices due to exposure to tank environment. It has more weaknesses compared to other methods. Atomizers require higher working pressure regulators to work.
Seachem PhosguardRegular price Dhs. 48.50 Save Dhs. -48.50
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.
