CaribSea A.R.M. Aragonite Reactor Media 50 lb (Coarse) Information




Get the best reactor media in the market. Try the Caribsea A.R.M. Aragonite Reactor Media, and see the difference in your aquarium in just a few days.

The Caribsea A.R.M. Aragonite Reactor Media from Pet Store is deemed complete by professionals because it contains essential elements like calcium and carbonate. It provides your tank with almost fifty times more strontium that any other brands. This reactor media provide you with everything that you will ever require to maintain a tank, and you will not need anything to add into it to improve its performance.

The Caribsea A.R.M. Aragonite Reactor Media is equipped with aragonite that has twice the surface area of any other brand and thus, it can absorb more dirt and harmful substances in your tank. A 2-3 mm grade is calibrated precisely so that the carbon dioxide can totally penetrate the surface. It does not have any gastropod shells so that the phosphate remains at a low level of less than 1/10 of a ppm, and the silica is only half of that of other levels. It is highly soluble and very pure that it becomes a standard of excellence.

The Caribsea A.R.M. Aragonite Reactor Media comes in a coarse, fifty-pound bag, which is all you need to treat reactors for a long period of time.

A complete reactor media containing not only calcium and carbonate, but essential trace elements as well. In fact A.R.M. has nearly 50 times the strontium of other brands (7,390 ppm) A.R.M. is processed for immediate use, no rinsing required, and has double the surface area of regular aragonite. Precision grading (2-3mm) allows for maximum carbon dioxide penetration, and the exclusion of gastrpod shells ensures the lowest phosphate (less than 1/10 of 1 ppm) and silica (about 1/2 that of other brands) content. This grading also carries in the highest concentration of Halimeda incrassata, an aragonite so pure it has been used as a laboratory standard. A.R.M. has the highest solubility of any reactor media available (metastable at 8.2), so CO2 consumption is much lower. A.R.M., its what yoru corals are made of.

Calcium reactors have evolved into several types that require different media sizes. We now offer our original ARM™ fine for downflow, slow upflow, and fluidized bed type calcium reactors and our ARM™ coarse for rapid upflow type reactors. No matter the reactor, CaribSea has you covered.

Comments: This stuff is the best by far for magnesium addition via a calcium reactor. The other media's I've tried have always led to me eventually having to monitor and adjust my magnesium, now I am pretty confident using this media it's a non existent problem. Never have any p04 issues and the media melts at a higher pH so less swing for the Dt.

Comments: I love it. I bought the coarse media. There is no way it will be picked-up in my Calcium reactor pump again. When I took my Korralin calcium reactor apart, there was media in my Eheim pump intake from over the past year. This will eliminate that problem from reoccuring. I strongly recommend this media size in reactors.

Comments: This media is by far the best I've used; does not turn to mush like others I've used. To be clear I use ONLY the course media not the original.

Comments: This is the first course media I've went with and I love it! I use it with a pH controller and have a mid point of 6.5 with it dropping to around 6.45 and the rate of usage is amazing. I'd recommed this to all of my friends if they had SW tanks. ;)
