Borneo Wild Planted

Balance:
100g bottle. $17.00

Balance is a substrate additive containing Tourmaline and more then 60 other types of trace elements and compounds. It improves the substrate environment, promotes beneficial bacteria activities and at the same time mineralizes the substrate.
When added to the water directly, Balance replenishes minerals and trace elements and is also capable of removing nitrogen compounds, glycerine, organic carbon, free radicals and heavy metals. It also improves health and growth rate of organism.



Boost P:
100g bottle. $19.00

Boost P is a substrate supplement containing 70 kinds of immediate and slow release macronutrients, nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium, that stimulate plant growth, ensure proper balance and improve nutrient uptake. Fine pumice powder promotes bacterial activities and aids in making nutrients available to the plants. Recommended for densely planted tanks with rosette and stem plants.



Bacter Crystal:
80g bottle. $15.00

Bacter Crystal is a substrate additive and water conditioner which improves soil condition, water quality, health and growth of the organisms and colonizes the filter system with beneficial bacteria. Unlike many other products which contain many species of dormant bacteria that may not get fully activated, Bacter Crystal uses only species which can survive in packaging, storage and be activated fully.
Bacter Crystal contains an extremely high concentration of bacteria in dormant state, approximately 1.5x10^9 CFU per 1gram. When laid beneath the gravel, the bacteria forms a microorganism layer which prevents the growth of anaerobic species. This allows aquatic plants to develop their roots properly and thus, grow healthily. It accelerates organic decomposition and supplies enzymes which activate the growth of other beneficial bacteria in the filter. It is able to remove organic C, NH3, NH4, NO2 and even NO3 which few other species of bacillus are capable of.
Bacter Crystal also contains a rich dose of natural, health improving, water polishing and conditioning additive which is made up of more then 90% calcium montmorillonite clay.
The special feature of the montomorillonite also allows Bacter Crystal to work in 2 ways: adsorption and absorption. Being negatively charged (-ve), Bacter Crystal attracts and binds with positively charged (+ve) matter like a magnet, including bacteria, toxins, wastes, chlorine, heavy metals, ammonium and other contaminants.
Apart from these benefits, Bacter Crystal also releases many essential minerals that benefit organisms, aiding them in digestion, growth and resistance to disease.


Bacter Energy:
70g bottle. $15.00

Bacter Energy is a substrate additive which aids the sustained growth of beneificial soil bacterial and microorganisms, thus speeding up the maturation and stablization of the substrate. Bacter Energy also helps to decompose organic waste and replenishes nutrients in soil, serving as a natural chelator which increases bioavailability of positively charged multivalent ions (Mg, Ca, Fe, Trace elements).


Boost:
20 Capsules. $7.00

Boost contains 70 types of immediate and slow release micronutrients, phosphorous, nitrogen, and potassium that rapidly stimulate plant growth.


Red:
20 Capsules. $7.00

Red is a substrate additive containing micronutrients and minerals with a high iron content. Prevents whitening of leaves and increases the redness of red plants.


Ferrum:
50ml Bottle. $14.00

Ferrum contains organic minerals, vitamins and micronutrients such as Fe-EDTA, and MN-EDTA that enhance aquatic plants' ability to absorb nutrients effectively.Prevents the yellowing of leaves and promotes vibrant growth. For best results, use with a macronutrient fertilizer. Can also be used to stimulate growth in small tanks without CO2 injection. Shrimp safe.

Do you have any sort of idea how much (even as a rough guess) substrate area one package of these additives would cover?

I noticed in the tank show and tell thread that you mentioned that you recently tested them out in a test tank.

I am considering using 3 of them (skipping the 'fertilizer' style one) in shrimp tank set-ups to improve bacterial growth/health and substrate health in conjunction with a UGF pipe system.

Thanks.

Each bottle is good for a 90cm aquarium except for Balance. That's good for a 60cm aquarium.

The test tank I set up was a standard 15 gallon and I felt I had plenty of each one. You might also consider Humic from the shrimp line if you're doing softwater shrimp. It's really nice if you use RO water. Sets the PH and GH for you.
