Brightwell Aquatics

Supplement for Increasing Growth Rates of Sponges & Gastropods Overview

Ionic silica solution for enhancing growth rates of sponges and gastropods.

1 drop per gallon of water increases ionic silica concentration by ~0.20 ppm.

May be employed in silica-limited systems stocked with sponges to improve water quality by increasing the rate of natural latent organic material uptake by these organisms.

May be used to increase the rate of sponge growth in marine systems housing spongivorous fishes such as marine angelfishes, butterflyfishes, and their allies, providing them with greater access to their natural foods.

Formulated by a marine scientist.

Silica Supplement

So, I recently purchased a Blue Sponge. I noticed it wasn't doing so well. So, I read that dosing my aquarium with silica could help. It's been about a week and I've noticed that my sponge is doing much better. I've even noticed other sponges in the aquarium slowly growing as well. Just make sure you test your silica before using this product. It's very concentrated and can cause an algae bloom if you add too much.
