Diatomix is a micronutrient solution, using nanotechnology to target and promote diatom algae growth. The micronutrient boost starts a strong diatom algae bloom, taking up nitrogen and phosphorus in the water. Reducing these macronutrients greatly slows the growth of undesirable algae and plants. All plants use micronutrients, but only diatom algae use silica. Diatomix contains ten micronutrients adsorbed onto nano-silica gels.
