Every time you use our products you are buying into the Organic Aqua culture; a lifestyle that opts for products and solutions that are not only environmentally friendly but also play a key role in preserving our water resources.
Our researchers, Dave & Amanda Gaybba were at the very core of designing an alternative like this since 1977 and achieved great success in shaping this green innovative technology. Organic Aqua offers products that are natural, that preserve the water resources, assists with the rehabilitation of the sensitive aquatic balance, and as a bonus, it also reduces the use of water in ornamental fish keeping and aquaculture practices. Simultaneously, it increases the overall health of the aquatic life, fish, and the pivotal microscopic aquatic balance.
Fish and aquatic creatures are beautiful jewels of nature. The guardians of the water world reflecting the state of our direct environment and the water quality. It is impossible for them to survive in polluted conditions with a chemical overload. And if our aquatic friends cannot survive these conditions, we should take heed as well, as we all need healthy water to survive…
Perhaps only a few of us can grasp, (if you follow a hobby or career dependent on water quality – be it an aquaculture farmer, breeder, environmentalist, research and developer or hobbyist) but once you have entered the world of aquatic creatures, you will soon get to know the fact that there is so much more to water quality than that which meets the eye. From microscopic creatures to photosynthetic balances, key nutrients, minerals, the nitrogen cycle, pH levels – to name but a few – and external factors like atmospheric pollution, rain, temperatures, and a whole bunch more, are all key ingredients that influence water quality.
Mix this with the harmful chemicals used in households, farming practices, industries, and water purification plants to see that any unbalance not only changes the appearance of water but also negatively impacts the dissolved oxygen levels and the water quality and in return affects our aquatic friends. Besides this, we are currently facing challenges of a chemical overload in natural water resources that results in hypoxia, toxic algae bloom, Cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) – killing our fish and aquatic life.
Medicines like antidepressants are finding their way into lakes and rivers changing the natural breeding and behavioral patterns of fish and aquatic life
A study completed by scientists found this drug in the brains of more than ten different species of fish in the Great Lake regions. Not only does it impact the biodiversity of the fish but scientist from the University of Buffalo say that it can cause harmful changes to the behavior of the fish resulting in a lethargic state with no desire to eat or breed. The bird and wildlife are exposed to the dangers of this drug as well.
Harmful chemicals and drugs like these find their way into our natural water resources and in most cases, it is impossible to remove all the traces of chemicals and their side effects. Therefore we believe a natural alternative is the only long-term solution.
Think about it for a moment; every time we use chemicals in our aquariums, ponds, or aquaculture farming, it will find its way back into our rivers, lakes, and estuaries. Now, that is a huge responsibility! It means (let's spell it out) that we directly influence our rivers, lakes, and estuaries. You don’t need to be a scientist to become aware of the state of our earth’s water – read, research, and become aware of the impact that our choices have on nature.
So therefore we invite you to do your bit with organic fish keeping, to preserve our natural resources for the sake of human and animal existence, and to secure a future for our children.
I have been using Organic Aqua's Fish Care and Water Care for nearly three years now, and can honestly say these products are a part of my success in breeding and rearing fish at Knysna Aquatics. Great results and a great price too.
We are a South African-based company that is passionate about water, aquatic life, and the environment. Organic Aqua was backed by a passionate research team and the IP holders, Dave & Amanda Gaybba, for a period of 13 years - after an intensive research and development phase that stretched well over 20 years.
Introducing this disruptive technology in ornamental fish keeping and aquaculture practices, was not easy but withstanding the brand slamming of many chemical companies, we survived the onslaught and finally managed to launch the official Organic Aqua Pty Ltd in 2016.
The case studies include projects with respected institutions such as The University of Stellenbosch Aquaculture Department, the National Aquarium in Ireland, UVAS in Pakistan (with an endorsement from this university).
Organic Aqua products are designed with an innovative “green technology” that includes carefully selected plant materials, extracts, beneficial water-soluble oils & essential macro minerals.
The amazing results with these environmentally friendly products are backed by thousands of successful case studies & customer testimonials from the past 16 years.
The safety of our products is endorsed by Laboratory Reports & microbiological analysis from reputable Institutions in South Africa, including Biotox (managed by the SANAS standards) Bemlab & SGS.
We do not claim to have magical products even though some claim that our products offer magical results (not only on the aquatic environment but also on one’s conscience). But hey don’t take our word for it, experience it for yourself and give us feedback HERE.
Organic Aqua is truly grateful for every client, be it a small aquarium hobbyist, a pond lover, or the avid breeder or aquaculture farmer, we appreciate your support over the years. You are making a difference! We salute you! This journey of change will not be possible without you.
Organic Aqua supplies pet stores, nurseries, hobbyists, and aquaculture farmers. Exporting to: Great Britain, Ireland, and Namibia
We are not interested in growing corporately or taking over the world, as we love our niche company where we know our clients by their names and offer a personal touch to our service.
You will find us conducting business in a true “Capetonian” style with jeans, “plakkies” and a T-shirt with an Organic Aqua logo and a funny slogan on it. This reflects our true nature of loving things simple and practical.
