ADA Black Water recreates the water of the tropical rainforest because it contains humic acid which is naturally found in tropical river water. It helps to keep fish healthy and reduces stress.
Keep your fish happy by replicating nature… in the tropical jungle there is a large quantity of leaves on the ground, so much that they cannot all be decomposed by bacteria. Humic acid from these fallen leaves leach into river water creating a blackwater river.
Fish species that live in these water conditions are used to water high in organic acids such as humic and tannic acid. You can lower their stress levels in your aquarium by adding ADA Aqua Conditioner Black Water, especially effective for newly added fish.
*Take note- we don’t recommend it for regular application in planted aquariums because it reduces the light intensity.
