Creating a true-to-nature bed structure in an aquarium

DeponitMix Professional is ideal for creating a humus-rich mineral nutrient medium in an aquarium. Authentic nutrient seepage springs can be generated using a Dennerle Bodenfluter cable. A Bodenfluter cable is a heating cable that becomes very slightly (!) warm. It is laid in loops on the bed of the aquarium. Its gentle warmth generates a slow circulation of water around the bed. This creates the optimum conditions for humus bacteria to convert nutrients into a form that plants can absorb. And not only that, but the tropical warmth of the bed helps promote root growth. What’s more, the circulation of the water transforms the entire bed of the aquarium into a giant bio-filter.
