Food Allergies Under Investigation
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Dogs | Dog Food | Cats | Burgess Sensitive
What’s the difference between a food allergy and food intolerance? And how can you tell if your dog or cat is suffering from one or the other? Itchy skin, upset tummy, weight loss? These can all be symptoms caused by diet – although there could be many other reasons why your pet is out of sorts and you should always ask your vet for advice. But if you suspect food could be the issue, where do you start?   Food allergies and food intolerance are two different conditions which often have similar symptoms. While they are both examples of adverse food reactions, food allergies involve the animal’s immune system while food intolerances do not. Food allergy or hypersensitivity This occurs when a particular component of food (usually a protein) triggers the susceptible animal’s immune system to react, for example, cells may release histamine which causes itching. Food or dietary intolerance This occurs when something in the food doesn’t.. [More] dogallergies.jpg

Blue Life Introduces New Kind of Resin Reactor
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Aquatics | Tropical Aquariums | Aquarium Filters | Marine Aquariums | Filter Media | Marine Additives | Water Treatment | Blue Life
Resin reactors are a brand new concept in reef aquarium water treatment being promoted by Hmahli Marine Life Support Systems, specially designed for use with the Blue Life USA line of resins. Chemical medias such as activated carbon, granular ferric oxide and aluminum oxide are an important tool in the control of unwanted substances and nutrients in the reef aquarium.   More recently, a new class of chemical absorption and adsorption resins are pushing the envelope of nutrient removing performance, and some of them have the added benefit of being regenerable. Over the last several years Blue Life USA has grown to become one of the country’s leading supplier of water conditioning medias. With the FX Advanced Regenerable Resins line, Blue Life is making it both cheaper and easier to condition your water while reusing media resins for removing phosphates, nitrates and general organics. The Nitrate FX, Phosphate FX and Organics FX are high capacity resins for removing s.. [More] BlueLifeMediaResins.jpg

Do you know what the term “Internet of things” means? It is a concept according to which clearly identifiable objects can directly or indirectly collect, process or exchange data by means of the KNX smart electrical installation or a computer network. It also includes the increasingly popular solution for controlling and steering individual devices using mobile phone applications.    AQUAEL, keeping abreast of the times, introduces the world’s first aquarium lamp meeting these requirements, called the LEDDY SLIM LINK. LEDDY SLIM LINK is a remotely controlled, universal LED lamp designed to illuminate open freshwater and marine aquariums. Fixed on the side edges of the tank panes, it constitutes an elegant alternative to the classic aquarium lid. Its use allows for obtaining a unique decorative effect.

AC Controllable Pumps From Italy
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Aquatics | Marine Aquariums | Controllers | Rossmont
Rossmont is a new company out of Italy that has been plugging away at making a new line of propeller pumps called Movers for aquariums. What makes Rossmont so revolutionary, is that they have designed a product called Waver that provides WiFi control of their AC pumps, a first in the aquarium hobby which is dominated by DC water pumps.   Besides the fundamental difference in how the Rossmont Movers are operated, resulting flow and functions are roughly the same as most water flow bundles containing two pumps and some kind of controller functions. But what is really different about the Rossmont Waver/Mover combo is that the user experience is wildly different, and the up-front cost is radically more affordable. To get this kind of flow from other manufacturers you’d have to spend quite a lot more. Rossmont’s new Mover & Waver combos is a completely new value proposition when it comes to controllable, high quality propeller pumps. Keep in mind we’re no.. [More] rossmontperfectcouple.JPG

What Is A Natural Aquarium?
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Aquatics | Aquael | Tropical Aquariums | Fish | Aquascaping
So-called natural aquariums, also known as Japanese aquariums or Amano style aquariums, are all the rage in modern aquaristics. The father of this concept, late Takashi Amano (1954-2015), was a Japanese nature photographer and aquaristics enthusiast.   When taking pictures of natural landscapes, such as the Amazon forest or the steppes, he wanted to try to transfer these behind the glass walls of the aquarium. Using natural decorations such as rocks, wood and roots as well as living plants, he began to create underwater forests, meadows and other landscapes. This trend was quickly adopted by many followers and enthusiasts all over the world. Takashi Amano developed several basic styles of natural aquaristics. These include: - ryuboku – an underwater forest. Using roots, wood and plants (mainly the so-called „epiphytes”), an image reminiscent of the primeval pristine forest flooded with water is reconstructed in the aquarium; - mizube – a kind..

Kamoer X1 A Flawless Bluetooth Dosing Pump
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Kamoer | Dosing Pumps
The Kamoer X1 is a wirelessly controlled single channel dosing pump and the natural evolution of what these standalone dosers should be. Without any button, screen or any kind of physical way to interface with the a Kamoer X1 pump, all interactions are performed through the Kamoer bluetooth app.   The pump itself is hardly more than a small box with a tiny peristaltic pump head, an input for power, a power output for daisy chaining multiple pumps, and just one single indicator LED to display connection status. The quick-disconnect peristaltic pump head is a must for keeping dosing pumps like these in working order so it will be a great convenience for user of the Kamoer X1. The world of reef aquarium products has reached a level of level of refinement across many different devices but usually the software and wireless connection is the part that suffers. Thankfully, we are happy to report that the Kamoer X1 connected to the app near instantaneously and the app is streaml.. [More] kamoer-x1-dosing-pump-770x504.jpg

Why Mice Are Really Nice Pets
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Pet Care | Rats and Mice
Pet mice are epic explorers and there’s hours of fun to be had watching them as they nimbly scale ropes, pause and scent the air, nibble on tasty treats that they hold delicately in their front paws and dash recklessly through tunnels. However, these compact pets have quite a long list of requirements when it comes to helping them lead their best mouse life.   On the run The first thing you need to know about having mice as pets is that they need plenty of space to exercise, forage, play, climb, investigate and interact with their cage mates. In the wild, mice are extremely active animals, travelling many hundreds of metres in one day. Their ideal enclosure needs to be a large, narrow-spaced barred cage, with gaps no more than 9mm so they can’t squeeze through them. Glass or plastic enclosures aren’t suitable for mice because they don’t have very good ventilation, which can cause breathing problems. The accommodation needs to be lined with lino an..

The Mother Of All Calcium Reactors
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Marine Aquariums | Deltec
Reefbuilders recently reviewed the new Deltec Twin-Tech Calcium Reactor and called it the “Mother of all Calcium Reactors.” The CR Twin-Tech is a new automatic calcium reactor from Deltec with a lot of bells and whistles, like all of them. At first look the CR-Twin Tech is a lot for the eyes to take in, but there’s a nice serving of German engineering with each and every piece.   The first big difference between the CR Twin-Tech and other automatic calcium reactors is the inclusion of an extra tube which is separate from the mixing chamber itself. This allows the water level to remain more stable even as the CO2 mixing chamber has aggressive water flow moving through it. Some other innovative features include a special venting tube on the topside of the main calcium dissolving chamber, pH control for more precise control of dissolution rate and a high quality solenoid valve specially chosen for this application. The system itself is not fed by a peristal.. [More] twintechreview.jpg
