Neutro Combo - Low Tech is an ALL IN ONE kit for the Low Tech (non CO2) aquarium. You make a little saving too!!

Neutro T is a liquid aquarium plant fertiliser which provides all the necessary trace elements including iron for your low tech planted aquarium. Low tech means aquariums which are not using pressurised CO2.  The ingredients in Neutro T are special. They work quickly and effectively when dosed as recommended. Your plants will show the benefits of this product and reward you in no time.

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.

If you are using CO2, then you need to dose Neutro+ which contains trace elements and macro nutrients (it's an all in one solution). So Neutro T for low tech planted aquariums and Neutro+ for high tech planted aquariums.

However regardless of what type of planted aquarium you have, we recommend using Neutro CO2 which is a liquid carbon supplement (see related products for more information).

Bottle sizes: Small = 500ml

Neutro CO2 is a liquid source of carbon for the planted aquarium.

For those of you not familiar with it, carbon is essential for all healthy plant growth and can be provided via gas, or liquid. The liquid form is not as potent as the gas but is still very effective. It won't make your plants pearl (this is when you see O2 bubbles coming from the plant) but it will help them grow. Plants that have access to liquid carbon will do far better than those without.

In addition to this, if you over dose Neutro CO2, it can have a negative effect on algae (helps reduce it). However you need to take care when overdosing, and increase it slowly. Perhaps 25% extra, then monitor the results. We do not recommend more than double dose.

It is also possible to spot treat plants or wood that have algae growing on them. Simply by using a pipette and extracting some Neutro CO2, squirt the carbon onto the plant or wood when it is outside of the water. Wait for 10 seconds then put it back into the water. You can also do this when performing a water change (it's easiest that way). But if you leave liquid carbon on for too long you will kill the plant.

DIRECTIONS: Add 5ml per 250L every day. It doesn't matter what time of day you dose this product, but it does need to be added every 24 hours.

I use these products religiously, just a small amount in the tank, before I put the light on. They certainly make a difference to the plants .

Ask a question about this product
Neutro Combo - Low Tech Small not doing as well as I thought it would I have used Neutro Combo - Low Tech Small (which has now run out ) also before I used it I was doin water changes and still doing water changes. The plants are not doing as well as I thought they would. but since using Neutro Combo all algae on my gravel and glass is gone. algae is growing on the plants as strong as ever even though my water now stands at no2=0 no3=0 ph=6.5 to 7 kh=180 gh= 120 last thing to go down was the ammonia which now stands between 0 and 0.5 and has been this low for some weeks. I have stopped liquid plant food and using plant pellets at the roots to try and keep feeding down in the water column.


You still have to do water changes regardless if you use this product or not!

If algae is growing on your plants, it's for many reasons, none of which are as a result of fertilisers as they DO NOT cause algae.

What does cause algae is:

1) poor water circulation

2) excessive lighting (too bright and too long)

3) insufficient water changes

4) not enough plants

5) insufficient numbers of algae eating shrimp

6) not enough or no fertilisers

By stopping using plant feed you will make the situation worse.

Can you tell me if this is fish and snail safe please.



is this safe for clown and yo yo loaches?
