What is seneye FLORA?
seneye monitoring devices were giving strange results when used in aquariums where customers were using plant fertilisers. We decided to look into the cause of this and found that the readings were being effect by the unnecessary fillers and in one part fertilisers. We also discovered that a number of the elements in a good fertiliser are better kept, and added to the aquarium separately. In light of this we decided to develop our own fertiliser working with an international team that is completely compatible with the seneye device and results in superb aquarium plant growth. The result is a two part fertiliser called seneye FLORA.

Seneye Flora Instructions:
There are two individual pump dispenser bottles in the pack - Seneye FLORA Mix & Seneye FLORA Plus. Between them, they provide all the micro and macro nutrients your aquarium plants need to thrive.
Normal use in a heavily planted healthy tank:
The dosage for optimum results in a heavily planted aquarium is 5ml (two pumps) per 100ltrs of water once a week of each bottle. The dosage of each bottle should be done on different days as it helps to encourage plant growth as opposed to algae.
You can calculate the required number of pumps of each liquid required for your aquarium by dividing the aquarium volume in litres by 20. This gives you the millilitres required of each liquid. The number can then be divided by 2.5 to give the number of pumps. An example is give below:
Divided by 20 gives ml needed
Divided by 2.5 gives pumps needed
First use of Flora:
If your aquarium is not heavily planted or you have small algae issues we recommend a soft start period of 6 – 12 weeks to allow the plants to recover, adjust and start growing again.
For this period spread your normal weekly dose worked over alternative days. The example below starts from a Monday:
Mix Monday, 1/3rd calculated weekly dose
Plus Tuesday, 1/3rd calculated weekly dose
Mix Wednesday, 1/3rd calculated weekly dose
Plus Thursday, 1/3rd calculated weekly dose
Mix Friday, 1/3rd calculated weekly dose
Plus Saturday or Sunday 1/3rd dose with a water change on your aquarium.
Algae Problems – Algae problems in your aquarium usually occur when plants are weak and are not using the nutrients up with growth. Always ensure that you buy healthy plants and make sure that CO2 / light levels are correct.
We suggest that you log details of water parameters at the beginning of use along with regular pictures of the aquarium. Then if you have an issue we can advise.
