    1078835_Fluval-Prism-Mutli-Color-Underwater-Spotlight-LED Looking to advance your aquarium lighting game? Fluval has plenty of customizable, high-performing options, in both Nano and larger tank sizes! LED lighting for aquariums has quickly become the preferred choice of many, if not most, aquarists and hobbyists. Energy efficiency, design advantages and controllability, along with a few other factors, drive the attraction - while on the tech side the quantity and quality of LED output and spectrum continues to advance.  Fluval's LED technology is also very interesting thanks to greatly increased light control of numerous parameters, such as light spectrum, dimming, and special effects! 

    fluval led lighting coverage In terms of quality, given the sensitivity and risks of an LED to water and humidity, IP67 has been made the water and dust ingress protection standard in the category. This degree of protection is achieved when the light fixture can be submerged to a depth of one meter for a minimum of thirty minutes - and ALL Fluval LED lighting systems carry an IP67 rating!
    Plus, each individual LED casts 120° of illumination for wider, uniform lighting without dead spots. 

    fluval light cycles 1078833_Fluval-SEA-Marine-Nano-LED-with-Bluetooth The light spectrum for the type of photosynthetic life you plan to keep is key, too; freshwater and marine systems require their own optimal spectral mix, for example. The Marine and Sea LEDs are designed to help you grow brighter, more robust corals, with intense lighting and adaptable spectrums ranging from sunrise, mid day, sunset to night. Some, such as the C.O.B. (Chip on Board) Nano LED or Prism LED lights, offer a hybrid spectrum for tanks that require lower light levels or conversely offer more powerful mood lighting for fun and dramatic effects too. 

    1078834_Fluval-Plant-Nano-Bluetooth-LED1078837_Fluval-Plant-Spectrum-LED-with-Bluetooth---24-36in The Plant LED's are designed to help you grow bigger, thriving, more vibrant plants in a planted aquarium.

    Seachem Flourish Treatments~

    seachem flourish tank Seachem Flourish is a comprehensive solution for plant supplementation in freshwater tanks! With essential micro-elements, trace elements, nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium and more - not only are these beneficial to aquatic plants but are safe for aquatic life like shrimp, snails, and other aquarium inhabitants too. If used as directed these should not alter pH levels or cause any problem algae either. 

    seachem-flourish-family Seachem's treatments are a multi-faceted line with various formulations meant to be used in conjunction for specific needs because some trace elements may be utilized more rapidly than other components depending on the rate of plant growth. (For example, Flourish Excel is a simple source of carbon for aiding growth of aquatic plants designed to make plant-keeping easier.) Other manufacturers try to include ALL necessary nutrients, leading to overdoses of micro-nutrients in an attempt to raise macro-nutrient levels. seachem flourish with plants and shrimp Flourish focuses on the five main parameters that need direct control, which are: Nitrogen (Flourish Nitrogen™), Phosphorus (Flourish Phosphorus™), Potassium (Flourish Potassium™), Carbon (Flourish Excel™), and Iron (Flourish Iron™). 

    Nitrogen is a component of proteins and nucleic acids, phosphorus is a component of ATP, NADP, nucleic acids and membrane phospholipids, and potassium is an enzyme activator and is involved in charge balance. Carbon is the backbone of all life and is thus essential for plant growth. Iron is necessary for the formation of chlorophyll and is involved in enzymatic electron transport and other oxidation-reduction processes.

    seachem-flourish-before-and-after-tank What's more, Uncle Bill's Pet Centers now carry new Flourish Advance in stores - a great addition to the Flourish line of products that can be easily implemented into your weekly dosing schedule. As Flourish Advance begins to work, you will see dramatic differences in aquatic plant growth as it stimulates roots and shoots of plants. It is 100% natural, safe and non-toxic to all aquatic life, and it enhances mineral absorption while improving disease resistance!

    seachem flourish corydora on plants Plus, Flourish Advance contains Phytohormones, which work to stimulate growth at many different stages of the growing process, while the minerals and nutrients help sustain these unbelievably high growth rates. It is great to use when adding new plants as well because it will establish the root zone quickly, and it’s also fantastic in established planted systems to promote accelerated growth.
