Hello Moin and welcome! I am the fat
Dirk and I am glad that you are mine Watch video!
I’ll show you today how you clear water in the aquarium and in the pond get and keep!
If you want to know how it works, stay tuned! How do you get and keep clear water
in aquarium and pond? You have to first know what makes the water cloudy.
Usually the water is clouded of algae and algae spores.
Through light and food they grow and multiply and become bigger and bigger
and thus become visible, disturbing maybe or even become a plague in the pond and aquarium. What can you do about it? There
are different possibilities and Aids. And a remedy of this is
our super natural algae killer: the hornwort! Hornwort or Latin:
Ceratophyllum Demersum is actually well known in the aquarium world and
also comes almost everywhere in the world in front.
But what does this hornwort do? Algae?
Nothing! But it eats away the food! Especially at Newly established aquariums can
help the hornwort, the biological Balance and maintain. And if
there is still light on it Hornwort falls during the day, then it
even produces oxygen. Very helpful, so long the actual plants in the
new aquarium maybe still are very small. And that’s also
the big weakness of the hornweed: It grows up to 10 centimeters a day!
That means you often get it out of the Pond or out of the aquarium.
But that is just one again Advantage, because it is very easy,
the hornwort from a defined place on Aquarium or out of the pond again.
This is not possible with Aigene so easy!
Hornwort does not form roots! That’s why Hornwort can also be used as a floating
plant in the aquarium or pond. However, if the hornwort
later grew a bit, it may be that it takes away the light from the other plants and therefore their growth impaired. That’s why I advocate
that hornwort on the ground too anchor.
And now I show you my method, how to anchor the hornwort on the ground!
Follow me! Here you see one of my pelvis, in which I let the hornwort grow for a while. I’ll take that out now and then it continues! I take the hornwort and find a bit of it. Why the top? Because on the top are the
little ones, let’s call them leaves, Therefore, it is more
interesting to take the top. Looks better! I now cut
the point between 10 and 15 centimeters above a wreath, leaving a lot of stalk. So!
Now we have the stem! Then I take a cable tie, put it through this
gypsum tube. The gypsum tubes one knows from the filter area. Pull it loose and cut off
the protruding part. So now we have a little loop here. I do
not know if you can see that well… Now we take the hornwort, stuck the stem through the small loop and pull the and the lowest wreath that, I called them leaves then the hornwort can not slip
out and I have an anchor! So! I’ll do that again! Now we have three hornwort
Plantlets and now we’re going to plant hornwort! Now just drop the hornwort with the anchor at the point where it should go. If you want, you can now bury the anchor if the look bothers you. I do that! So, now we have a little hornwort bed and looks good too! So, here we are again! Depending on your taste and need,
you can choose larger or smaller Build hornbeam beds pretty
fast and also in this way Rebuild back pretty quickly.
You just need the anchor again with exception. In the pond, of course, you
have to think bigger, use more hornwort. If the hornwort has grown
too long now, then take it just get out, take off the anchor
below, cut again a 10 to 15 Centimeters long tip and put them
back in the anchor, as I just and then back to the aquarium or pond!
