Brightwell Aquatics Elemental - Dry Reef-Building Complex for Corals, Clams, etc. Information




Want to make sure that your aquarium can sustain your corals and reefs? Then here's a product that can offer you the perfect solution! The Brightwell Aquatics Elemental - Dry Reef-Building Complex for Corals, Clams, Etc 400 g / 14.1 Oz from Pet Store provides you with a high-quality supplement that contains the trace elements need by your marine rocks to stay healthy and strong. Very effective and easy to apply, this is the best item your money can get.

The solution is created from a special concoction, and it contains substantial amounts of calcium, magnesium, and strontium, which are all present in the ocean and essential for your marine rocks' well-being. It also contains other elements that can give the water in your tanks and ponds a balanced alkalinity level. It does not have any preservatives that might leave an unpleasant taste and color in your aquaria. And it also does not have any harmful elements like phosphates, silicates and nitrates.

The Brightwell Aquatics Elemental - Dry Reef-Building Complex for Corals, Clams, Etc 400 g / 14.1 Oz is a very effective product; 1 teaspoon is enough to treat a gallon of water. With this product, your corals and reefs will be healthier and stronger, giving you a more beautiful marine ecosystem to enjoy.

Overview
  • Contains calcium, strontium, and magnesium in the same ionic ratios found in aragonite. This unique feature increases the usefulness of Kalk+2 to reef-building invertebrates such as corals, clams, calcareous algae, etc.
  • Provides temporary alkalinity and helps maintain pH within the desired range when used as directed.
  • Adds no conservative elements, such as chloride, to the aquarium.
  • Improves upon the industry-standard powdered calcium supplement over the past three decades.
  • Formulated by a marine scientist.
Technical Background
Calcium, magnesium, and strontium are required for the formation of aragonite, the skeletal material of reef-building invertebrates such as corals, clams, tube worms, and their respective allies. Brightwell Aquatics Kalk+2 provides these elements and may also be used to help regulate pH in reef aquaria. Kalk+2 does not contain chloride salts, which is a strong point for some hobbyists. The use of kalkwasser-type products remains very popular with many seasoned hobbyists, regardless of innovations in calcium-delivery methods.

Instructions and Guidelines
Kalk+2 is intended for use by experienced hobbyists who are familiar with kalkwasser (calcium hydroxide-based) products. The calcium concentration (”[Ca2+]”) and pH in the aquarium should be determined by using an accurate test kit prior to supplementing. Do not add this product directly to an aquarium without diluting in water as directed, and do not overdose; it must be added in a controlled fashion with a dosing device. Create a stock solution by dissolving 6 grams (~1 tsp) of Kalk+2 in 1 US-gallon of fresh water (preferably purified) and allowing at least one hour for any settling to occur; each ml of the saturated sol’n will increase the [Ca2+] in 1 US-gallon (3.785 L) of water by 2.3 ppm, strontium concentration by 0.04 ppm, and magnesium concentration by 0.06 ppm. This solution must then be dosed/dripped into the aquarium at such a rate that salinity does not fall below 1.021 g/cm3 and pH does not increase by more than 0.1 every hour, nor is it ever allowed to exceed a value of 8.5. Dosing at night when pH in a reef aquarium is naturally depressed is often performed to avoid exceeding the maximum allowable pH value. If the [Ca2+] in an aquarium is gradually dropping despite using this product as directed, the rate of evaporation may be insufficient or pH may be too high to dose sufficient calcium to compensate for the rate of removal by reef-building aquarium inhabitants and/or undesirable chemical reactions. In this case, a secondary calcium supplement may be needed to occasionally re-establish the natural seawater concentration of calcium in the aquarium.

Caution: Calcium hydroxide is a caustic material; if inhaled, remove to fresh air, and in case of contact flush skin and/or eyes with fresh water for 15 minutes. Drink 16-oz. fruit juice if swallowed and seek immediate medical attention. Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption.

Guaranteed Analysis (by weight)

Comments: I used to buy all of these products from different makers seperately. This product does make it easier to dose once and cover most of the important elements at a very good price. Its keeping all of my levels in check just as did the dosing seperately so. I do dose weekly when my lights go down in the evenings being it does cloud up the tank like "purple up" does for a few hours at least. I have noticed my corals and coralline algae growing much more rapidly since using this product the past few months...
