Kent Marine Discus Essential 16 oz. Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

Invigorate your aquarium with the vital trace minerals and nutrients with a regular dose of the Kent Marine Discuss Essential from Pet Store. This formula contains biologically needed nutrients commonly found in the natural oceanic water of marine fish and plants. Since an enclosed type of habitat usually loses these important minerals and elements due to the regular absorption of aquatic inhabitants, it is crucial to replace them to avoid total depletion. This formula does that to prevent plant and fish diseases and death.

The vivid colors of your aquatic friends are often affected by the poor water condition of the tank. Keeping the water clean and clear are important but keeping it full of the elements that the body needs to survive is optimum. Instead of frequently changing water to ensure that your tank has good water quality, pouring this formula can cause a change in your current aquarium water. It energizes and rejuvenates your pets without the use of harmful hormones.

The Kent Marine Discuss Essential comes in a sixteen-ounce bottle. A capful of this formula can already treat thirty gallons of tank water every week, which is perfect for casual maintenance. With this formula, you will be delighted at the sight of the color and vigor of the aquatic life inside your tank.

Description:
Color and vigor of fish can be negatively affected by lack of trace minerals. Kent Discus Essential replaces biologically important trace minerals which are used by fish and plants and removed through filtration in discus aquaria. Discus Essential will provide color and vigor without use of dangerous hormones! It contains no detrimental heavy metals, phosphates, nitrates, or silicates.

Directions:
Add one teaspoon (one capful) per 30 gallons of tank capacity every week. Use Kent Freshwater Plant Supplement also, in heavily planted aquaria.

Considerations for use:
If using reverse osmosis, deionized or distilled water, first use Kent R/O Right to replace major and minor elements removed during purification process and create artificial river water. If using tap water, or after making artificial water with R/O Right, use this product, Discus Essential, to restore trace minerals lost due to carbon, resin and other filtration, and absorbed by fish and plants.

This product will not affect alkalinity, pH or water hardness. You must adjust pH separately, and use R/O Right to increase total dissolved solids (i.e. GH), if required. Kent pH STABLE will increase alkalinity (i.e. KH) and help maintain a stable pH.

A word about carbon use - carbon, resin products, and pad filters will remove trace minerals! (Contrary to information many companies claim!) We recommend you use carbon etc. for several days, then remove it. Then, dose the tank with Discus Essential to replace those minerals adsorbed. To conserve carbon, simply reduce your use to the amount necessary to clear the water. Use carbon again when water starts to turn yellow.

New Kent Expert Series Organics Adsorption Resin is a revolutionary soft snow white resin that turns dark brown as it adsorbs organics. Unlike any other filtration medium, it does not remove trace minerals, is regenerable over and over with common table salt, and can be left in the tank continuously!

Contents:
Inorganic mineral salts of aluminum, boron, bromine, calcium, chromium, chlorine, cobalt, copper, iodine, iron, lithium, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, potassium, selenium, sodium, strontium, sulfur, vanadium, and zinc in a base containing deionized water and EDTA.

Precautions:
Not for human consumption. For Aquarium/Ornamental fish use only. Not for fish used for human consumption. Keep out of reach of children!
