——————————————————————————–[PRODUCT] ADA’s original oil film remover, VUPPA-I

Oil, organic matter, or dust sometimes forms a thin film on the surface of an
aquarium. Having such oil film on the water surface spoils the allurement of an
aquascape. VUPPA-I developed with ADA’s original structure eliminates such film
effectively. And all hand-crafted stainless body does not spoil the appearance
of the aquarium. It can be installed to the frame-less tanks with thickness
from 4~15mm, and it produces excellent oil-removing performance from small to
large tanks.

105-801  VUPPA-I
*It is designed based on the Japanese electrical standard with 100VAC input.

——————————————————————————–[KNOW-HOW] Here, we introduce tips and technical how-to about NA based on FAQs.

Q) I’m using four NA Lamps for my 60cm aquarium. I sometimes see in shops that
one of the fluorescent lamps used for aquariums with aquatic plant layouts is a
red fluorescent lamp and it is situated at the front side of the aquarium. Will
this enhance the natural feel of the layout? Should I use a red fluorescent lamp?

A) You may feel that reddish aquatic plants look more attractive under a red
fluorescent lamp, but it is merely a color rendering effect produced by the
fluorescent lamp. When focusing on a natural feel, the healthy growth of aquatic
plants, regardless of species, is a matter of critical importance. To make the
red color of reddish aquatic plants appear more attractive, do not rely on the
color rendering effect of the fluorescent lamp but focus on enhancement of leaf
color by supplementing with iron using a nutrient such as ECA. The ultimate
natural look should be obtained by precisely reproducing the leaf color of
healthily grown plants and the fluorescent lamps used in aquatic plant layouts
are expected to bring this out. For this reason, there will be no problem if
only NA Lamps are used. Rather, this arrangement can make growing aquatic plants
look more natural than introducing a red fluorescent lamp among ordinary
fluorescent lamps. The NA Lamp is the first fluorescent lamp designed
exclusively for aquatic plant growth and has excellent plant growing as well as
color rendering effects.
