Dennerle Carbo Care Pro is an active carbon for accelerated plant growth.
Carbon (carbon dioxide) is the most important nutrient for aquarium plants. Around 40 % of the plant dry matter consists of this, which is, however, in short supply in the aquarium. The result: poor plant growth. And when the plants grow poorly, the unloved algae get their chance.
All plants, from mosses to echinodors and cryptocorynes to fast-growing stem plants, become fuller and stronger. The leaves become much larger and more colourful. Success can be seen in the shoot tips and young leaves after just a few weeks. The lush, healthy growth increases the plants' competitive power against algae. Unwanted algae are thus pushed back. Every plant in the aquarium appears healthier, greener and more beautiful.
How Carbo Care Pro works:
Photosynthesis is the basis of plant metabolism. In this biochemical process, solar energy is "captured" and stored in energy-rich carbon compounds. One such energy-rich compound is sugar, for example. These compounds are used by the plant (a) as a universal energy source or (b) to produce other compounds. To stay with the sugar example: The plant can "burn" the sugar again in its cells and use the released energy to drive other metabolic processes. Or it can process the sugar into cellulose, for example. Cellulose, also called wood pulp, is the substance that gives trees their strength and consists of nothing other than long sugar chains.
How can the plant convert substances into each other?
The central hub in plant metabolism is the so-called citric acid cycle. It is like a factory. The citric acid cycle is a factory. A wide variety of substances are introduced here to produce the required substances. With the help of this metabolic pathway, the plant can produce all vital carbon compounds itself: Carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, secondary plant substances, etc.
And this is exactly where Carbo Care Pro comes into play. The product contains selected active ingredients that are also found in plant metabolism in this or a similar form. The active ingredients are absorbed by the plant and used in the cells as a building material to build higher compounds or as a source of energy. This additional supply enables the plant to grow faster and stronger.
In addition, there is another positive effect: all organic agents based on carbon are bacterially degradable, because the numerous filter bacteria in the aquarium feed on them. In the end, only carbon dioxide (CO2) and water remain.
Carbo Care Pro therefore supplies the plants with vital carbon in two ways. The effect is already visible after a few weeks of regular use: the plants grow faster, lusher and healthier, algae are pushed back.
