Coral Essentials Cal, Alk, Mag Only




 

Part A Calcium

200,000 ppm highly concentrated
Coral Essentials, Part A Calcium is a concentrated source of liquid calcium, 200,000 ppm (mg/L). Calcium is an essential component in the formation of calcium carbonate skeletons, i.e. coral growth. The calcium levels in marine tanks need to be checked regularly to determine the take up in your system. How much calcium is being used can be calculated by testing at regular intervals to see how much the calcium level drops during the set interval. Then it is simple to calculate dosing requirements to suit the depletion rate. After you have determined this, a regular check of the calcium levels should be made. Your tank will change over time as coral grows, new pieces are added as well as invertebrates that also take up calcium. We have found ideal calcium levels to be at about 430-470ppm for most aquariums. Levels of 470+ ppm are desirable if you want to maintain high levels of growth in a SPS and hard coral dominant system.

Part B Carbonate

200,000 ppm highly concentrated
Coral Essentials, Part B Carbonate is a concentrated liquid solution of carbonate and bicarbonate salts, 200,000 ppm (mg/L) or 11,200dKH. Carbonate is also an essential component in the formation of calcium carbonate skeletons, i.e. coral growth. The alkalinity levels in marine tanks need to be checked regularly to determine the carbonate take up in your system. How much carbonate is being used can be calculated by testing at regular intervals to see how much the KH level drops during the set interval. Then it is simple to calculate dosing requirements to suit the depletion rate. After you have determined this, a regular check of the KH levels should be made. Your tank will change over time as coral grows, new pieces are added as well as invertebrates that also take up carbonate. We have found ideal KH levels to be at about 8-9 dKH for most aquariums. Levels of 8.5 – 9.0 dKH are desirable if you want to maintain high levels of growth in a SPS and hard coral dominant system.

Part C Magnesium

100,000 ppm highly concentrated
Coral Essentials - Part C Magnesium is a concentrated source of liquid magnesium, 100,000 ppm (mg/L). Coral take up magnesium into their calcium carbonate skeletons. It is important to maintain adequate magnesium levels as this is essential in maintaining correct calcium and alkalinity levels. Poor magnesium levels usually result in the need for addition of much higher levels of calcium and carbonate than would normally be required. It serves to prevent the excessive precipitation of calcium carbonate from aquarium water. The magnesium levels in marine tanks need to be checked regularly to determine the take up in your system. Magnesium usage can be calculated by testing at regular intervals to see how much the level drops.  Then it is simple to calculate dosing requirements to suit the depletion rate. After you have determined this, a regular check of the magnesium levels should be made. Your tank will change over time as coral grows, new pieces are added as well as most other aquarium inhabitants also take up magnesium. We have found ideal magnesium levels to be at about 1350-1400ppm for most aquariums.
