NEW Additives:


  • Seachem Products for Planted Aquaria:


Flourish Excel:

Flourish Excel is a simple source of carbon for aiding growth of aquatic plants. Designed to make plant-keeping easier without carbon dioxide injection. Use it alone, or if you choose, with carbon dioxide injection. Keeps iron in a reduced state that’s easily utilized by plants. 1 ml treats 10 gallons. Recommended for use on a daily to every other day basis.

Flourish Advance:

Experience overall aquarium plant health and development with this all-natural biologic growth enhancer. Seachem Flourish Advance Natural Phytohormone Supplement is an advanced liquid plant supplement that contains phytohormones, minerals, and nutrients that dramatically stimulate the growth of both roots and shoots in aquatic plants. Used regularly, it also enhances mineral absorption and improves disease resistance.

During the first ten to fourteen days after application, Flourish Advance works to stimulate root growth beneath the surface. After this initial induction period, significantly enhanced growth in the leaves and stems of the plants will occur. It is nontoxic and completely safe for all plant varieties as well as for fish and aquatic organisms.

250 ml (835 fl oz) treats 1,000 gallons.

Flourish Nitrogen:

Liquid nitrogen supplement for planted aquariums

Supplies nitrogen, one of the three main macronutrients required by plants, in both the nitrate form and the plant-preferred ammonium form. Does not release ammonia. 250 ml treats up to 5,000 gallons.

Flourish Potassium:

Flourish Potassium is a highly concentrated potassium supplement for the natural freshwater planted aquarium. 1 ml treats 10 gallons. Repeat 2-3 times a week, as needed. A 250 ml bottle raises the potassium level by 10 mg/l in 1,000 liters.

Flourish Trace:

An excellent source of important trace elements for aquarium plants. Seachem Flourish Trace replenishes important trace elements that can be rapidly depleted by various chemical processes and natural plant growth. Flourish Trace accurately supplies the trace elements truly needed for continued lush growth of freshwater plants. Flourish Trace does not add random trace elements to ensure proper aquarium plant health and growth. Allows for more frequent dosing without build up of more slowly used components often associated with broad-spectrum supplement use.

Dosage: One capful for every 20 gallons twice a week. 250 ml treats 50 gallons for 2-4 months.

Flourish Phosphorus:

This safe solution of potassium phosphate will enhance and accelerate the growth of aquatic plants without enhancing algae. Takes the guess work out of phosphate dosing. 250 ml treats up to 5,000 gallons.

Flourish Iron:

Give your plant growth an extra boost! Seachem Flourish Iron is a water conditioner that stimulates plant growth in your aquarium. Recommended for use with Flourish, Flourish Tabs, and Flourite. Free of phosphates and nitrates. Iron is an important nutrient in the planted aquarium. Flourish Iron should be used in planted aquariums where aquatic plants demonstrate signs of iron deficiency (such as short and slender stems or yellowing between veins).

Flourish Tabs:

Flourish Tabs provide time-released conditioning to planted aquarium substrate. Flourish Tabs are growth-stimulating tablets containing essential trace elements, amino acids, and vitamins. Flourish Tabs are rich in iron, manganese, magnesium, calcium, potassium, inositol, choline B12, biotin, and other factors beneficial to aquarium plant roots. Flourish Tabs contain no phosphate or nitrate that would promote algae proliferation. For best results, use in combination with Flourish. Each dose lasts 3 to 4 months. Use 1 tablet per 4 to 6 inch radius.



  • Other Seachem Additives for Freshwater Aquaria:


Discus Buffer:

Recreate ideal water conditions necessary to successfully keep Discus. Lowers pH and softens water by precipitating dissolved solids such as calcium, magnesium, and other metals. Very strong and stable buffering system maintains low pH level. Use with Neutral Regulator in fixed ratios to achieve a pH level between 5.8 – 6.8, depending on the amount used. 250 grams treats approximately 800 gallons. Not recommended for aquariums containing live plants.


Highly concentrated dry bulk conditioner makes large volumes of tap water safe for aquarium use – for less money! Seachem Safe provides a smart, cost effective way to remove chlorine, chloramine, and ammonia as well as detoxify nitrite and nitrate. Great for use when starting up a new aquarium or anytime you need to add or replace water. Suitable for marine and freshwater aquariums.

50 gram Seachem Safe treats 1,200 gallons.

Cichlid Lake Salt:

Allows your Rift Lake Cichlids to grow and thrive in your aquarium. This blend of inorganic salts is designed to replicate the natural waters of these cichlids. Contains all essential elements, such as magnesium, calcium, sodium, and potassium. Plus, includes trace elements such as iron, manganese, and iodide. Contains no harmful or unnecessary ingredients such as nitrate, phosphate, or arsenic.


Malawi/Victoria Buffer:

Seachem’s Malawi/Victoria Buffer is a specifically designed formula that enhances the natural environment of freshwater aquariums housing African Rift Lake cichlids. Water conditioner/buffer helps promote proper health by providing appropriate levels of carbonate salt for African cichlids. Freshwater aquarium additive increases water hardness, buffering capacity, and pH to replicate the natural Rift Lake Malawi/Victoria environment. Formulated to raise and maintain pH between 7.8 – 8.4 depending on usage; an essential product for owners of Malawi and Victoria cichlids. Recommended for use when making water changes or when setting up a new freshwater African cichlid tank. Available in two economical sizes; 300 grams treats approximately 800 to 1,600 gallons.


Convenient liquid water conditioner simplifies mineralization of pure reverse osmosis water. Reverse osmosis or de-ionizing filtration effectively removes dissolved solids, including minerals necessary for aquarium fish health (osmoregulation). This proprietary blend of salts replenishes these important minerals lost during the production of purified RO/DI water. Seachem Replenish restores General Hardness (GH) using a balanced blend of both “soft” (sodium, potassium) and “hard” (calcium, magnesium) salts. Restoration of mineral content is essential since a complete lack of minerals will result in osmotic stress. 250 ml treats 500 gallons



Cichlid Trace:

Cichlid Trace supplies a broad range of trace elements demonstrated to be necessary for proper fish health and growth. Unlike terrestrial animals, fish obtain nutrients from both their food and environment. Trace elements are normally depleted by utilization, oxidation and precipitation, thus it is important to restore them on a regular basis. Cichlid Trace™ contains only those elements actually demonstrated* to be required by fish.

Ingredients: calcium chloride, magnesium chloride, potassium iodide, copper sulfate, iron sulfate, zinc sulfate, manganese sulfate, sodium fluoride, selenium

Acid and Alkaline Buffer:
