            Rapid Grow Aquatic Plant Fertilizer



               This 10-5-14 aquatic plant fertilizer is the answer to paying too much to keep plants going in a multitank 
               fishroom. For photos of what it has done for the plants here, see Keeping Plants. In 2008, I noticed that
               hydroponic fertilizers were designed to fertilize large quantities of water in greater concentrations
               than we normally use to treat the plants within our aquariums. They would be dramatically cheaper than
               currently available aquarium plant fertilizers for a large fishroom, but would they work?

               And would these fertilizers be toxic to the fish or invertebrates that we keep in an aquarium?

               After 3 years experimenting with different types of fertilizers, consulting with their manufacturers and using
               them at various dosages, a mix and a measure was agreed upon in 2011 that creates amazing growth in plants,  
               and is totally non-toxic to the fish, invertebrates, and anything else living in the aquarium. The fertilizer is now
               packaged by Select Aquatics. This fertilizer costs only a fraction of what a conventional fertilizer costs
               to use. Each 6.0 oz. container will treat up to 44,000 gallons!

               This fertilizer, however, has not been tested in salt water aquaria, and if you are considering using it in
               a salt water aquarium, you can contact me at  for more information on its

               The Dosage: 1.5 teaspoons of the powdered mix is simply added to a gallon of water. 1.5 oz. (a turkey
               baster full) will treat a 30 gallon tank. Treat 2x monthly. The water mix can be stored for up to a month
               without problems, and the beneficial effect it will have on your plants can be seen within just a couple days.
               This fertilizer does not contribute to or encourage algea growth.

               This mix has been tested here at up to twice the concentration recommended without any ill effect on the
               fish, their breeding, etc. Plants take off in that they are sturdier, greener and grow quickly. All of the
               Amazon swords here have sent off reproductive branches covered with new young plants. One customer
               told me that a carpet plant that he had thought was long gone, and that he had even forgotten about, crept
               back up through the gravel after starting the use of this fertilizer!

               As of January 2017, over 300 containers have been sold to individual customers through this website,
               with many repeat customers - Give it a try!

      Bolbiitis ferns have been grown here with single plants
      that would fill a 55 gallon aquarium, using this fertilizer,
      60 watt equivalent CFL bulbs, water changes, filtration
      and some water movement. In this tank are Alfaro cultratus
      swimming over a bolbitis fern on the left, and Java fern
      on the right. Water movement is provided by 3 air driven
      box filters sitting against the back of the aquarium. This tank
      is bare bottom with a single layer of 1/4 inch pea gravel over
      1/2-1/3 of the bottom.  No CO2, soils, etc. are used.
      Water here is 7.4 pH and 90ppm hardness.
