Our world desperately needs an energy efficient way to produce H2 for energy production without producing waste pollutants. Catalytic cracking of molecules and newly developed fuel cells offer two possibilities. Wouldn't it be great if a reactant like water could be used for H2 production (without the use of electrolysis) or expensive metal catalysts? Nature may show the way. Bacteria (even E. Coli found in our GI system) can use simple metals like iron to produce H2 from H+ with electrons for the reduction of H+ coming from a donor (such as a reduced heme in proteins):
Effect on plants:
In a controlled test conducted with terrestrial plants; plants treated with magnetized water (basically Redox Balanced Water) reacted in a test, with a growth in the order of 20% to 40% bigger than the plants treated with regular water.
While no test has been conducted with planted aquariums, it is not rocket science to draw conclusions from this study and apply this to a planted freshwater aquarium and the effect of Redox Balance on plant growth!

Why excite electrons?
The ultimate purpose of exciting electrons from chlorophyll is toprovide the energy needed to transfer electrons from water to NADP+. Recallthat spontaneous electron transfers proceed from a carrier with a more negative redoxpotential to a more positive one.
Photosynthetic reaction centre - Wikipedia
Both the LHC and the reaction centers are membrane bound structures but there are no chloroplasts in the purple photosynthetic bacteria. The electron transfer processes occur within the cell membrane and the overall process is a cyclic one (i.e., there is no net oxidation-reduction). Protons are transferred across the membrane, from the cytoplasmic side to the outside, establishing a proton gradient whose dissipation drives ATP synthesis. A similar situation holds for the cyanobacteria and plants, but in these organisms, the process occurs in chloroplasts and the overall reaction is not a cyclic one.
A photosynthetic reaction centre is a complex ..
Maintaining a proper Redox Balance (or Potential) which includes the reducing side of the equation is a lot like having an anti-oxidant vitamin in the aquarium water (although a more accurate description would be magnetically charged water).
The Aquarium Redox is also just one more parameter towards good disease prevention and long term fish health and growth.

Simple Test to Understand Redox: Take an 8 oz. glass of water, then add enough Potassium Permanganate to change the color to a mild red, then take any aquarium water conditioner such as Prime or Start Right and slowly add drops to the water and watch the red be "reduced" (neutralized) to a clear brown color.
What you are observing is the reduction of an oxidizer (potassium Permanganate) by a Reducer (generally Sodium Thiosulfate is used in these conditioners).
Find out information about photosynthesis
We'll look at a simpler example of photosynthesis first, and use it as an introduction to photosynthesis in plants and cyanobacteria (blue-green algae). Although the primary reactions of photosynthesis take place at "photosynthetic reaction centers," the first level of interaction of light with an organism that carries out photosynthesis is at an assembly of chlorophyll molecules that "harvest" light (the "light-harvesting complex"). Such an assembly results in a greater chance that photons will be captured and, because of the strategic arrangement of the individual chlorophyll and other accessory light-absorbing molecules, the transfer of energy to the photosynthetic reaction center is very fast (-10 s) and very efficient (>90%).
