Tropica interzoo 2012 iannella massimo andersen christensen windelov

Translation: i thank Mr. Fabrizio Lattuca a lot for his productive and important translation work, that has maintained the original content and descriptions of the italian version of this article.

The stand of Tropica Aquarium Plants at Interzoo 2012 has been prepared with great care and attention, comprising of a wide set up made of neat white furnishing, in order to make the proposed tanks and products stand out. An important difference in comparison to the other stands was the fact that Tropica put on display aquaria set up in advance, rather than just made on the spot. Thus being able to offer a very different exhibit and a striking visual impact. All the tanks were very well maintained, with plants showing no mineral deficiencies and shining colors. There were some tanks where the names of the species were shown clearly and new species were presented (e.g. Alternanthera reineckii “Mini”, Hygrophila sp. 'Araguaia', Nymphoides sp. 'Taiwan', etc..)

Extremely interesting were the great display tank containing hundreds of well ordered potted plants and the small stand with the 1-2-Grow cups, consisting of species raised “in vitro” and ready to be introduced in the tanks just after the washing off of the culturing medium in gel form. Tropica at this time introduced a new line of products for setting up and fertilization made of just three items, revised and improved. We are talking about the base fertilizer “TROPICA PLANT NUTRITION”, the advanced “TROPICA PLANT NUTRITION +” (which also contains N and P as well as all the microelements) and the fertile substrate “TROPICA PLANT SUBSTRATE”, which is used as a bottom layer to be covered with plain gravel, sand or similar. With regard to CO2 fertilization, the company presented two brand new (and both very good) systems: “PLANT GROWTH SYSTEM NANO” for small aquariums, and “PLANT GROWTH SYSTEM 60” for larger aquariums (around 60lt but even more).

On this occasion I finally had the pleasure to meet personally all the managing staff of Tropica (which I cooperate with for the research on new plant species) and in particular the well-known Mr. Holger Windeløv (the founder of Tropica) and Mr. Troels Andersen (Development Manager ). I also had the honor to discuss with my friend (and internationally renowned expert) Mr. Claus Christensen, researcher and owner of the website www.aquadiscover.com, besides than former director of Tropica for more than 20 years. Thanks to my brother, who knows English very well, we could go through a very pleasant talk about several aspects of aquariology;  in particular those regarding the new plant species just introduced, those that could be interesting for the next future and the main issues regarding algae.
