Pay in 3 interest-free Payments with PayPal

Just choose to pay with PayPal when you shop online, log into your PayPal account and, if it is an eligible transaction, you’ll see PayPal Pay in 3 as one of the available payment methods. After selecting it, you can apply for a PayPal Pay in 3 plan in a few simple steps, get an instant decision and finish checking out.

PayPal Pay in 3 is an interest-free loan that lets you split your basket into 3 payments, with the first due at time of purchase and subsequent payments due every month on the same date. It’s a great way to spread the cost of larger items or to cover emergencies, and is a helpful tool to manage your budget more effectively. Please note that Pay in 3 is a form of credit, so carefully consider whether you can afford the repayments and be aware of the possible impact of missing payments, including making other borrowing more difficult or more expensive.

Carbon (in the form of CO2 dissolved in the water) is one of the most important nutrients for optimal plant growth. If there is a lack of carbon, plants are not able to optimally assimilate and grow. As a result of this deficiency, plants stop growing and no longer compete with algae for the nutrients. If this carbon deficiency lasts for too long, then plants start to leak sugars and other nutrients which attract algae. As a result, leaves become covered in algae and look unattractive. 

After approximately two weeks of using our carbon, aquarium plants visibly grow better and look better. This is particularly true of swamp plants (Cryptocoryne sp., Echinodorus sp., etcetera). As a result of the increased competition for nutrients, algae find it very difficult to survive and, in most cases, they disappear altogether. 


Recommended daily dosage

Average planted aquarium: 1ml per 50L per day

Heavily planted Aqurium/ aquarium with algae issue: 2ml per 50L per day
