Description

Neutro+ is a liquid plant fertiliser which provides trace elements and macro nutrients (NPK) for high tech planted aquariums. The definition of 'high tech' is injecting with pressurised CO2 with moderate to high lighting. This all in one solution makes dosing really easy. The results are impressive and plant growth is better, healthier, quicker and stronger - but only if you dose as recommended.

Dosage: This product needs to be dosed daily so that your plants have a steady stream of nutrients. There's little point in dumping a weeks worth of fertilisers in one go. Simply add 5ml per 100L every day. It doesn't matter what time of the day you dose, as long as it's every 24 hours. Over time as your plants grow, you need to increase the amount of Neutro+ you are adding. Larger plants need more food than they did, let's say a week ago. If you don't give them the food they need, the plant will struggle and algae will begin to take hold.

It's worth noting that regardless of what type of planted aquarium you have (i.e. low tech or high tech), we recommend using Neutro CO2 which is a liquid carbon supplement (see related products for more information). This will help all plants not only by adding another source of carbon, but also keeping any algae at bay.

Bottle sizes: Small = 500ml,  Medium = 1000ml,  Large = 2000ml

The bottle has a cap which measures 10ml. In order to dose you can pour directly into that or use one of our dispensing bottles (which is on the better together promotion on the right hand side of the screen).

FISH HAVE NEVER LOOKED SO HEALTHY SINCE USING THIS PRODUCT.

by Tom E. on 21/7/2017

As soon as I started using Neutro+ I noticed a change in my plants vigour, I have been dosing every day using a low tech set up (having changed from a CO2 injection and Tropica feed) and the growth has been steady and the plants look really great. I am new to the hobby and it is great to find something that can be bought in bulk, this means you don't worry about uping the dosage, which you will need to do as the plants grow. It is really quite econmoical, my regret is that I did'nt but the biggest bottle, which I will next time. I also reccomend getting the Neutro CO2, the combination of the two has boosted growth, where I am worrying about pruning not a system that is limping along. I use a calpol syringe for dosing, if something was provided that would be great, but it is still worth 5 stars. Tom Leeds

Every time i use Neutro the water in my tank goes a little bit cloudy its about 24 hous to clear is this normal Tank 120L co2 Neutro dose 10ml

 
Staff
No it's not normal. Are you using a buffering agent in your tank to stabilise ph?

 
Guest
Yes i use ro water and buffer with liquid ro right

 
Staff
It's the RO right that is causing the cloudiness - the phosphate buffering conflicts with the iron in this product.

 
Guest
Thanks

 
Guest
Do you think changing to a diffrent ro product would solve the problem

 
Staff
Yes. Try Seachem Replenish :)

 
Guest
hi. is it safe for shrimp? red cherry shrimp. thanks

 
Staff
Yes

 
Guest
Hi, When a tank is newly set up with a nutrient rich substrate such as ADA Aqua Soil Amazonia would you begin by dosing the recommended amount of Neutro or less?

 
Staff
Always start with the recommended amount :)

 
Guest
Will SeaChem Purigen remove any elements of the Neutro when added to the water?

 
Staff
No

 
Guest
I am living in soft water area. Do I need to use Seachem Equilibrium or other similar products with Neutro ?

 
Staff
Nope - you're good to go

 
Guest
Hi, does this contain iron?

 
Staff

Yep

Hi Richard.Many thanks for the advice you gave me recently on how much Caribsea Eco Complete to use in 200L planted tank on the telephone.I know you recommend this fertiliser along with neutro CO2.I run pressurised CO2 with drop checker and bubble counter and i have good flow rate in my tank as all plants seem to be swaying nicely in the current with no algae problems.I use Eco Complete as a substrate and dose daily with Easylife Profito and whilst my tropical community fish stock isn't overstocked it isn't understocked shall we say.I have a Java fern on wood,Anubias on wood,Amazon Swords and a few stem plants and a quite large blue stone rock aquascape.I'm noticing some light green leaves on my java fern with dark green tips.Could you tell me what is causing this please?If it's some sort of mineral imbalance i will switch to Neutro instead of Profito.Many thanks.Darren.

 
Staff

A nutrient dificiency is what's causing it. If you run pressurised CO2 and only add Profito, you have zero macronutrients in your tank (don't rely on fish to produce this as it doesn't work). If you don't fix this soon, the light green leaves will be the least of your worries.

Profito is for non CO2 tanks only.


 
Guest
Thanks.I'd read a review of Tropica Premium and Tropica Specialised in Practical Fishkeeping which was stating use Tropica Specialised if your tank is lightly stocked and planted not too heavy and vice versa with Tropica premium.Should have just gone with what you recommend in your flyers in the post when ordering plants.

 
Guest
Hi. Shall I use full dosage every day from beginning even though I've just started my tank and all plants are just taking off and there is not many of them?

 
Staff

Yes. Start with the dosage recommended and go from there.


 
Guest
I started with recommended dosage and wondered when and how much I should increase in ml per 100l? Can I do 12.5ml or even 15ml without worrying I will be feeding algae? Thanks.

 
Staff

Sure you can. 15ml is fine to increase. The dosage on the bottle is a starting point and you always have to increase as your plants grow. Bigger plants need more food etc.

Remember excess nutrients DO NOT cause algae. Excess light, lack of CO2, poor water movement and insufficient water changes do.


 
Guest
Thank you.

 
Guest
Hi. Would going for 30ml per 100L daily cause any problems to fish or shrimp?

 
Staff

Probably not. Just work your way up to it.


 
Guest
Does Neutro have Calcium and magnesium in it? I have just realised that my household water softner has been removing these and replacing with sodium ions. Trying to work out why the shrimp and rabitt snail died. Now using outside tap water but it will take time to get back to where it should be. Wondering if the fauna have been suffering a deficiency. The plants seem ok and look more vibrant since increasing dose Lol!! :)

 
Staff

Yes Neutro Plus has Calcium and Magnesium in.


 
Guest
Hi I have been using the recommended dosage and have noticed that this pushes my nitrate levels too high in my aquarium !! Obviously this is a concern as high nitrate levels are not good

 
Staff

That's exactly what Neutro + is meant to do. The misconception that high nitrates is a bad thing is a load of rubbish, marketed purely so manufacturers could sell you nitrate removing products. Nitrates are ESSENTIAL for all plants and in a high tech aquarium you need lots.


 
Guest
I was under the impression that high nitrates were harmful to your fish !!!

 
Staff

Makes no difference to fish


 
Guest
So there's no need to test for high nitrate levels

 
Staff

that's right


 
Guest
Hi, What do you recommend when away for a week. Will plants be ok without ferts . Tank is co2. Thanks

 
Staff

are you subscribed to our newsletter as this is a subject we cover

ideally someone will dose for you but if not, you need to double dose for a few days before hand


 
Guest
Yes subscribed

 
Guest
I have been to a number of fish shops and some of them are telling me my nitrate levels are too high and I should cut back on fertilizer which is in my case Neutro Plus. I have quizzed them about nitrates being bad for fish. They all say that high nitrates at a high level over a long period of time weakens the immune system of fish so they won't sell me fish. What would your understanding of this be? Thanks in advance for answering this question?

 
Staff

Unfortunately the fish shops are still in the dark ages! Not uncommon though. There’s no proof that nitrates have any effect on fish regardless of concentration.
