Tips for usage of Easy-Life Filter Medium in reef and marine aquariums
A single full dosage = 10 ml per 30 litres
Overdosing: no problem!
When Easy-Life Filter Medium is added to a reef aquarium with a double dosage, then its capacity of removing contaminants has doubled as well. This means that Easy-Life works quicker and more efficiently at an overdosage. However, one never needs more than a triple dosage for certain purposes, like the removal of medicine residue. For most purposes a single dosage will suffice. Because the product is 100% natural and safe, overdosages have no detrimental side-effects. On the contrary, the fish, the useful bacteria, the biofilter, the plants or corals, welcome Easy-Life in the water. Furthermore, the product is also safe for children and is therefore far ahead of current legislation.
Damage of the slime coat
When fish have a damaged slime coat, then use a double or triple dosage. The slime coat will heal within days and bacterial infections are avoided. When the fish was already infected, then Easy-Life will cure this infection by neutralizing the harmful bacteria that caused it. Easy-Life thus fights the cause of infection, thereby saving the lives of many fish.
Shy fish, dark colours
A single dosage is enough to make the fish much less shy. This shyness often finds its root in poor water quality. The fish don't feel very well and colours fade, and a kind of stress gets hold of them. Easy-Life improves the water quality immensely, which results in vital, bright colouring fish.
Growth enhancement of corals
When you are using the product for the first time, then add a dosage of Easy-Life two times (day 1 and day 7). Then add a normal dosage monthly. That way you will see improved growth of your corals.
Fast maturing of new fresh water and marine tanks
Add a single dosage at the beginning and again after 3 weeks. The aquarium will mature very rapidly, usually without a nitrite peak.
Growth of live rock / corals
When you are using the product for the first time, then add a dosage of Easy-Life two times (day 1 and day 7). Then add a normal dosage monthly. That way the live rock will grow like never before. If you have a problem that corals are growing slowly or not at all, this doesn't mean that you can't do anything about it. On the contrary. This problem can have several causes, like e.g. the presence of copper traces in the water. Easy-Life improves the water quality immensely and removes all kinds of growth-inhibiting contaminants. The product really boosts your marine tank.
Copper in the water
A single dosage of Easy-Life Filter Medium binds copper and other heavy metals in relatively large quantities.
Purchase of fish, lower animals: stress
Use normal dosage to prevent stress and bacterial infections. In case of heavy stress, to prevent the death of fish and lower animals : use a double dosage. This way, bacterial infections and stress are prevented and wounds will heal very fast. Problems like sticky fins are easily solved by Easy-Life.
Use with medication
Do not use medication in conjunction with Easy-Life Filter Medium. Easy-Life Filter Medium will (partly) neutralize the proper working of the medication. In cases whereby the water is already treated with Easy-Life, do the following : - Change about half the water - Add the medication That way the medical residue will be removed, the water quality will improve rapidly and the fish recover quickly.
Use a single dosage of the product. Keep an eye on the important water parameters (nitrite, ammonium). Easy-Life actually works similarly during power failure as it does during relocation. Animals can someti-mes be on the way for 24-48 hours during import and export. How Easy-Life works to keep the animals healthy and alive, read this : Transport.
Transport - Quarantine - Import - Export
