In a strongly lit well-planted tank or in aquariums with few fish a lack of macronutrients may occur, which in turn can lead to poor plant growth. Makro Basic NPK adds the most important macronutrients of nitrogen, phosphate and potassium to the tank. The plants can once again access plentiful resources, resulting in lush growth as an expression of gratitude.

Weekly water changes of 25 - 50 % are recommendable. The dosage can be raised or lowered depending on the requirements. If the aquarium water shows high readings of nitrate and/or phosphate from the start, this fertilizer is not suitable, though. It has been designed to prevent the accumulation of large concentrations of macronutrients. If high levels of nitrate and/or phosphate occur, the dosage should be reduced.

The basic supply of macronutrients in a tank is provided either by our NPK fertilizer, our Estimative Index fertilizer or by our single-nutrient fertilizers (Makro Basic Nitrat, Phosphat and Kalium). Our waterplant fertilizer Aqua Rebell Makro Basic NPK adds nitrogen, phosphate, potassium and magnesium and thus covers all the essential macronutrients, providing the plants with the prerequsites for lush growth. This fertilizer has been designed to prevent the accumulation of large concentrations of macronutrients, as a rule, however, the daily dosage should just cover the daily amount the waterplants use. The dosage recommendation is a very good starting point for the individual adjustment of the fertilization to the own aquarium. Especially with regard to macronutrient fertilization, a certain amount of personal effort is required when determining the appropriate dose, as the macronutrient input is additionally influenced by variables such as fish stocking and food input.

When fertilizing, however, it should generally be noted that a micronutrient fertilizer (complete iron fertilizer) is also required in addition to the NPK fertilizer.
