Brightwell Aquatics Calcion-P - Dry Calcium Supplement for Reef Aquaria Information




Use the Brightwell Aquatics Calcion-P - Dry Calcium Supplement for Reef Aquaria Pet Store to provide your saltwater tank with sufficient amount of calcium. This product is made of high grade ingredients that are safe for fish, aquatic plants, and other creatures. Its super fine granules dissolve in water easily. Calcium will reach its proper level when you use this product appropriately.

This helps corals, tube worms, and clams to flourish and develop better. Corals will have better lush growth and skeleton formation. They could double in size in just a couple of months. Insufficient amount of calcium will make your inhabitants weak. The Brightwell Aquatics Calcion-P - Dry Calcium Supplement for Reef Aquaria is easy to use. You will have no hassles with it because it comes with complete, detailed instructions written on the label.

Unlike competing brands, this dissolves easily while keeping clarity of your water the same. Use a reliable test kit to measure calcium level in your marine tank before and after using this product. It contains no nitrate and phosphate which are harmful to any saltwater tank. This product is a smart choice for any aquarist because it is convenient to use and affordable. Maintain calcium level at 412-450 ppm with this efficient solution. Grab one today.

Overview
  • High-purity powdered calcium.
  • Increases the concentration of calcium in marine aquarium water to provide corals and other reef-building invertebrates with one of the most important elements required for growth.
  • Stronger and more economical than liquid calcium solutions; created for hobbyists maintaining multiple reef aquaria.
  • Formulated by a marine scientist.
It is recommended that the calcium concentration in the aquarium be determined by using an accurate test kit prior to supplementing. Do not add this product directly to an aquarium containing live animals without first diluting in water as directed.

Technical Background
Calcium is required for the formation of aragonite, the skeletal material of reef-building invertebrates such as corals, clams, tube worms, and their respective allies. In reef aquaria, maintaining calcium within a range of 412 - 450 ppm will enable corals and other reef-building invertebrates to grow rapidly when all other physical and chemical requirements are met. [Magnesium, strontium, and carbonate ions are also complexed into aragonite, and their importance in a reef aquarium cannot be overstated.] The rate at which calcium is extracted from the water is determined by the stocking density of reef-building livestock, type of lighting, and other biological, physical, and chemical conditions; therefore, each aquarium will have different requirements for the rate of calcium supplementation.

Instructions and Guidelines
Basic : Dissolve 2 grams (~½ teaspoon) of product per 20 US-gallons of aquarium water in 8-fl. oz. of fresh water; add every other day or as needed to maintain the calcium concentration within a range of 412 - 450 ppm. When used in this fashion, 800 g treats up to 8,000 US-gallons (30,283 L).
Advanced: Create a stock solution by dissolving 10 grams (~5 teaspoons) of Calcion-P in 8-fl. oz. of fresh water (preferably purified); each ml of the solution will increase the calcium concentration (”[Ca2+]”) in 1 US-gallon (3.785 L) of water by 2.50 ppm. [Reference: Each g of Calcion-P will increase the [Ca2+] in 1 US-gallon (3.785 L) of water by 95 ppm.] If initial [Ca2+] in the aquarium is below 412 ppm, add stock sol’n at maximum rate of 10 ml per 20 US-gallons daily until desired concentration is attained, then dose daily or weekly as needed (see below). Maintain [Ca2+] within a range of +/-10 ppm. Once desired [Ca2+] has been acquired, measure aquarium`s [Ca2+] at the same time each day over a one- to two-week period to determine the daily rate of calcium uptake (i.e. the decrease in calcium). To determine daily dosing rate (preferable to weekly dosing): estimate volume of water in entire aquarium system (US-gal.); divide the daily decrease in [Ca2+] by 2.50; multiply this number by volume of water in system to obtain daily ml of stock sol’n required to maintain stable [Ca2+].

Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption.

Guaranteed Analysis (by weight)
Calcium (min - max) 33 - 37% (330,000 - 370,000 ppm)
