I am wondering if the Rubidium, Nickel and Vanadium in Seachem Flourish Trace is just collateral from the water source or impurities in the major elements they are adding
I'm pretty sure they are impurities. I assume when they ran the sample through an <"ICP / MS"> these came up as "present" so they added them to the label.which is like 2.5 Parts Per Trillion .. I'd say shake well before use!
@X3NiTH might be aware of some places that sell it
I'm pretty sure they are impurities.
I wonder why they didn't list Gold as well... In freshwater Gold is typically available at around 2-5 parts per trillion (much more in seawater) and have been found in plant leaves ... Imagine a Flourish Trace bottle with Gold letteringt’s a convenient way to differentiate your product with all the others, it’s a plant available nutrient so mention it and it makes your compound ‘more’ than the others and also becomes harder to clone because sourcing these elements individually may be problematical or way too much of an expense.
Just don't suggest it to them, pretty soon it will appear, no doubt with the endorsement of several Youtubers.Imagine a Flourish Trace bottle with Gold lettering
Not gold (Au), but we have been detoured down the <"diamond route before">.I wonder why they didn't list Gold as well.
Speaking of diamonds, I once saw a womens shampoo advertising that it contained "real diamond extract"..
You can also get <room sprays infused with gemstones> (whatever that means). But in this case there more than gemstones in the bottle…Speaking of diamonds, I once saw a womens shampoo advertising that it contained "real diamond extract"..
They were selling it for about 3.5 pounds a bottle, which I found especially impressive 😏
Good to know it’s not just me that could not find it locally!I sourced my Nickel Sulphate from eBay, came all the way over from Poland, it was the only cost effective source I found.
(Originally I posted Nickel Chloride, I forgot it’s the sulphate I’m using so I edited the post)
Yes that should be fine as well.Would ammonium nickel sulfate be useable? it is the only nickel powder I could find available in 100g or less.
Ammonium Nickel Sulfate crystals
I realise the ammonium part could potentially be an issue but wonder if the tiny amounts I would be adding would discount that risk?
