The original Mironekuton® from Japan, only found in a single region there, is exceptionally rich in natural minerals and trace elements.
Due to its manifold beneficial characteristics it is highly popular with Japanese shrimp breeders and plant tank keepers, especially in combination with soil subtrates, as it significantly enhances the all-important microbiology (bacteria, accompanying fauna).
Mironekuton® is used as mineral supplement and water conditioner during the cycling phase of the tank and thus can benefit the development of the important microorganisms in the filter and the ground from the beginning. When the tank runs, Mironekuton® gives off minerals constantly and thus provides the inhabitants and the useful helpers in your tank with the minerals they so desperatly require.
In addition to all these positive characteristics, Mironekuton® stabilizes the pH value and thus prevents dangerous pH plunges. It sustains total hardness (GH), improves the water quality as well as the ion exchange capacity and provides for better plant growth and root formation, enhancing photosynthesis and the formation of oxygen. It absorbs noxious substances, makes the water crystal clear and removes odours.
Mironekuton® Mineral Stones are simply placed in a tank and serve as mineral depot always avaiable for all the aquarium inhabitants. Alternatively, the stones can be put into the filtering tank or in the external filter.
The outer loose layer of the stones comes off in water. If you hold the stone in your hand in the water you can easily rub it off and thus spread the powder evenly in the water to increase its positive effects. Should you not want this, you could just rinse the stone under running water.
Approx. 100 - 150 grammes of Mironekuton® Mineral Stone to 10 litres of tank water.
The stones give off their minerals far more slowly than the powder so the dosage has to be higher.
