Another Company's product
There are a lot of aquarium products on the market, and while most of them will work perfectly fine together in the aquarium, some will not. We can't 100% guarantee any product that's not our own, but here's a few quick rules:
- Avoid using products that overlap in function. Either one works and so it's the one you should be using, both work and so it's a waste to use them both, or neither work and you should be looking for a third, better product. In the case of Flourish Advance®, using multiple phytohormone supplements could lead to abnormal growth patterns.
- Research the products you use carefully. Typically, if a product or medication is volatile enough to react with a plant supplement, the company will mention it on the label or website, or you can call in to check.
- When in doubt, wait a day. While there should not be any interaction between Flourish Advance® and another product, leaving 24 hours in between the doses will avoid possible fish stress from rapidly changing water parameters.
It's safe to use Flourish Advance® alongside any of the other Seachem® products that are recommended for freshwater planted systems. Keep in mind that not every product that is recommended for freshwater is also recommended for a planted tank - while Flourish Advance® will not directly interact with any of the following products, you will obtain the best results in your planted tank by using products intended for plants.
Here's some Seachem® freshwater products that are Not recommended for planted tanks
|Neutral Regulator®||Alkaline Regulator™||Arowana Buffer™|
|Acid Regulator™||Discus Buffer®||Betta Basics™|
|Replenish™||Medications (in water)|
As previously mentioned, it is perfectly fine to use these products alongside each other, but the products listed here are specifically intended for freshwater tanks without plants.
