Söchting oxidizer

Recommended Posts

Sprae

Looking at Söchting oxidizer on BossAquaria. Does anyone have any experience with it? Certainly looks like a great addition to my nano tank, improving oxygen levels for my shrimps.

Definitely an addition ! My order is placed with the Bee Shrimp Mineral.....must thank Dean into the research and getting these product to our shores !

Sprae .... You must have plans for more nano tanks, breeding tanks ..... LOL, I was once contented with having 1 tank, then 2, and swore my 3rd was the last. Now I have 10 !!!

Just added the oxydator into my nano. Initial reactions;

- This mini oxydator fits well into my tank but need to make sure it's accessible from the neck of the Edge.

- Only using one catalyst as my tank is under 30L. Very easy to set up.

- First few minutes, there were lot's of mini bubbles. Probably mostly from the ceramic letting air out. As the Edge has enclosed top, I had to place it so these bubbles to the top of the neck.

- Once settled, the micro oxygen bubbles very slowly seeps out and I place it into it's permanent spot.

- The shrimps are very curious at this and quite a few are crawling over it. They are feeding now and seems fine.

That's it for now. Certain has no adverse effects that I can see to my shrimps so far. As it's only 4.9% H2O2 solution, even if it's all split/leaked I think it's mostly harmless. I will monitor my algae conditions and activity of my shrimps.

After a day there's it's certainly h2o2 being used. There's about 5-7mm gone.

Let's hope that's normal operations :)

Can you overdose? Is using the D in an undersized tank going to cause problems?

there can never be to much oxygen mate :) using the D is not going to be a problem.

Very very nice Sprae! How will this work if I have CO2 running in the tank? Will it cause disharmony with the PH?

I don't think so, but I've got a low tech tank without the need for CO2 injections.

Just Recieved mine today, I set them both up and put 1 with 1 catalyst in my 36L and 1 with 2 catalysts in my 180L rack. Looking good... The shrimp jumped straight onto it ;)

My question is, does the catalyst wear out over time? Or is it simply a case of using solution and that's the only thing you have to replace.

The catalyst does wear out of effectiveness. But not sure how long it lasts.

over time yes it will wear out, but not for a very very long time :)

Mine is almost half empty in less than a week. I'm thinking the catalyst is new and reacting too much. Either that or my nano tank lack oxygen quite severely.

Do you have lots of surface aggitation? The edge dosent look like it would get much filled to the top?

      Traps don't work on hydra. Even with planaria, it is slow and it doesn't catch them all.

      Very wise as once they start breeding your population may sky rocket anyway, as they have with the CBS! I'm sure you should get some really nice surprises/colours when they start cross breeding too! Simon

      I will stick with the present shrimps, give it another month or so before I add some more shrimps.

      More fantastic pictures love the blue shadow panda and the 2 red pinto galaxy. Great to hear all is going so well! If you have a lot of CBS then they will breed when they are old enough so losing the 'mother' isn't too bad at this stage and they only love max 2 years anyway. Glad you still have 2 blue bolts as well - those will probably be my next purchase when they are in stock? The putting spinach in my tank has brought a few of my shrimps out but bizarrely they aren't touching the actual spinach? Seen 2 black and 3 red (of the 8 total I bought) so far today? Simon

      update my new tank is becoming stable, the shrinps are growing, I have seen many of the shrimps shread it's shell.   My old tank is infested with black CRS, but the mother had just died yesterday, I still have two blue bolts and a few CRS.
