The other day I bought a bottle of Daro aqua flora. I was just wandering does it work.
ummm.. does it have the ingredients on the back?
I don't know this product, but Daro aren't known for quality products
DARO are importers and distributors of major quality brands, such as Eheim and Sera etc., but also have their own house brand, which I'm sure AdrianT is referring to.
I personally have never used any of their house brands (that I'm aware of) and I don't think many here would have experience with this particular product.
Being an importer of quality goods doesn't make your own product any better And yes, that's what I'm referring to.
The usual rule of thumb: You get what you pay for...
In all honesty...I'd rather go for Scape Complete or Tropica (if you can find it)
Thanks for the info
Im still interested in what is inside the bottle. Please take a pic of the ingredients list. Thanks,
Can you believe what is written on a label by Daro?
....Used it many many years ago...seem to remember it grew algae rather well...
It does not have a ingredient list.
From its colour I would think that it contains Iron chelate. By now we know that this is totally inadequate.
I think this "fert" is one that belongs in the aquarium museum......
My scientific 2 c worth.
Already started saving up for Scape Complete
That is a good choice, and will let you plants grow well!
Hi. Please expand
You need to do some reading up and try to find out about this yourself. Just have a look at all the fert calculators on this forum alone and do some searches on the forum. This is a major field and you need to work yourself into this, and then ask questions. As a university professor, I simply don't have the time now, with all the upset exams at the universities as they are.
Ok. No probs
@mik778866 ... think prof wrote a piece about it somewhere on APSA a while ago (I may be mistaken)...something about Fe2+ and Fe3+ ions, also why rusting nails actually aren't too helpful for iron uptake in plant roots, etc. I'm no chemistry expert, so I just stay with what works...and leave the experimenting to the guys with the knowledge...
Thanks. Found it - http://www.apsa.co.za/xenforo/threa...dding-fe-to-help-them-update.4856/#post-45671
