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.

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?

      Fantastic photos and great that the RO water unit and pen arrived so promptly! It is always exciting when you get a batch of shrimplets - something I am looking forward too! Simon

      Springs here, so maybe the shrimp are more active for breeding? Hope you are collecting the waste RO water for watering your plants.

      Bought an RO DI unit from FSA. Free postage and it arrived in 2 days. Very happy. The TDS pen arrived today so I got busy. For reference, I’m about 2 hours North of Sydney. Tap water: TDS 155-157. PH 7-7.2 RO water: TDS 0-1 (Remineralised to 150). PH 6.6 CRS tank water: TDS 198. PH 7-7.2 I siphoned a vey small amount of tank water and am in the process of drip feeding the RO water into the tank. I’ll do this method during water changes until the tank water PH is at 6.6 I guess.  Also found new born shrimplets yesterday and two more berried females. I haven’t seen any berried in about a month so I’m happy.

      But the shrimp will be thinking otherwise. Look at all that yummy brown diatom!
