I believe you are correct.In that case, my understanding is that it wouldn't be considered legal in the UK as it's an antibiotic.
I don't quite understand the above. How can oxidation remove O2 from the water column? It's just dawned on me - are you saying that the manganese itself oxidises thus taking oxygen from the water column?If this sounds like random guesswork take note that the Warning on this product is that it may/will ‘Increase Biological Activity’ resulting in an increase in oxygen demand causing available oxygen to fall, it may also adjust the pH. That’s just plain hilarious as this is exactly what happens when you add Manganese into an Alkaline environment, it oxidises (removes O2 from the water column) and adjusts the pH (down).
So it would be good to find a way not just to eliminate this from tanks but to keep it out by creating the environment to prevent it by feeding the tank the elements cyano doesn’t like and limiting the ones it does (or adjust the element to element ratios). Easy Peasy then
Is actually a substance made and used by certain plant species, the most common one is the willow tree. In ancient times it is/was extracted from the bark and put in ointments and drinks etc. It's the antiseptic bactericidal painkiller commonly know as Aspirin. Science can not really prove it yet but assumes that plants use this substance to prevent been nibbled at and rot from damage.
Yup and because of this they had to develop complex sequestration mechanisms to adapt to bathing in their own waste products which also happened to oxidise their metal food sources making them unavailable.No chance to eliminate spores of the Cyano from the tank, they are abundant on whole Earth, and because of them we can breath using oxygen.
OK, a couple of days late...I will add a few more details later today.
