GlasGarten Liquid Humin+ adds important humic and fulvic acids to the aquarium water and thus creates species-appropriate conditions for your aquarium inhabitants. Humic substances are present in almost every natural river / stream and are found in high concentrations especially in the habitats of ornamental shrimp and ornamental fish.
Humic substances promote vitality, colourfulness and well-being, stimulate reproduction, increase the survival rate of offspring and ensure healthy growth. They strengthen the immune defenses of aquarium inhabitants and improve aquarium biology. They reduce algae growth, inhibit harmful germs, bind pollutants and have a preventive effect against diseases, as well as fungal infection. In addition, humic substances stabilize the pH and thus protect against a dangerous pH fall.
Humic substances should not be missing in any aquarium. Their positive properties have been proven by new scientific research and since they are missing in tap water, osmosis water, etc., we must add them. Humic substances contribute to the species-appropriate attitude, they are present in almost every habitat and for the health of the animals and their immune defense very important. The organisms have adapted to this and even in low concentrations, which hardly color the water, humic substances use their positive properties.
In scientific experiments with crustaceans (water fleas) even the smallest and invisible concentrations of humic substances were enough to make the animals feel more comfortable and show a better reproduction rate. We have been using humic substances in our farm for several years now and have been able to detect this in our shrimp as well, so we support the recommendation for a regular addition of humic substances in the aquarium.
Further scientific investigations confirm the positive properties of humic substances and eg. Christian Steinberg (Department of Freshwater Ecology at the Humboldt University in Berlin), who was intensively occupied with humic matter, even considers it indispensable in an aquarium. So far, in the classical ecological literature, it has been assumed that humic substances only have an indirect influence on the animals. Now it could be shown that humic substances have a direct influence on the organisms and are even vital, says Professor Dr. med. Christian Steinberg.
