The Continuum advantage.
Flora•Viv Grow is a high quality, bio-available, fertilizer for freshwater planted aquariums containing nitrogen in a safe form for aquatic use. Flora•Viv Grow also contains kelp extract, known to accelerate freshwater plant growth. Whereas some companies use Urea as an inexpensive nitrogen source, Flora•Viv Grow utillizes only sodium nitrate because urea, the main source of nitrogen in urine, can release toxic ammonia into the aquarium, which may irritate fishes gills and cause sickness and death at pH values over 7.0. Flora•Viv products contain no polycycloglutaracetal or glutaraldehyde.
