Purple-Up™

Purple-Up™ is a new pink and purple coralline algae accelerator. Since Purple-Up™ is not a fertilizer, it does not promote the growth of nuisance algae. How does it work? Purple-Up™ uses a unique dual method approach to coralline algae acceleration. It contains ionic calcium which immediately raises dissolved calcium levels in your aquarium water. At the same time Super Sea Calcium™ (a 10 micron aragonite powder derived from natural seawater) targets the live rock surface. Super Sea Calcium™ dissolves in situ; delivering calcium, strontium, magnesium, and carbonate right where it’s needed. Purple-Up™ also replenishes iodine; an essential element for coralline algae tissues that quickly becomes depleted in closed systems. Purple-Up™ is an excellent addition to any aquarium with stony corals too! One bottle of Purple-Up™ replaces the typical multi product recipe for successful coralline algae growth favored by advanced aquarists.



Directions
Shake well before use! Add 1 capful (5ml) per 50 gallons no more than once daily. Place in the sump, near a powerhead outlet, or any high flow area of the system for rapid dispersal. Purple-Up will cause some temporary cloudiness. Check calcium levels regularly. Adjust dosage of purple uptm to maintain calcium levels between 380 ppm and 420 ppm (380 mg/l to 420 mg/l). Do not exceed 420 ppm on a regular basis or significant precipitation will occur. (important! Wait at least 1 hour after using purple up to test calcium levels or erroneously high calcium levels may be indicated.)

Comments: Gets coralline growth going quick. Have it on the back wall and rocks now within a week. I was getting the green coralline variety so this helped with the purple which is more appealing. Great supplement.

Comments: It should be called GREEN - UP. It only give me a green hair algae all over my tank in a few days. No purple or what so ever. I end up have to clean my tank and bought a new live rock, as the green is take over on pretty much everything. Enough said, I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone. After I did some research, I found that some people have the same issue as me. So waste time and money. I wish, that I never put this in my tank.

Comments: Just recently decided it was time to start up a new tank. CaribSea Purple Up is the best way to start your purple coraline algae growing and spreading rapidly. I use purple up in every tank I own, and recommend to all my clients.

Comments: This product is one of those products that does nothing that good husbandry and regular water changes with a good salt mix won't accomplish. It does not and will not raise calcium levels at all. The product is nothing but ground aragonite in a water solution. What it MAY do is provide a base for coralline to attach to once it settles on a substrate. For good coralline growth, all you really need is low PO4 & NO3, calcium levels of 420-460ppm and Mag levels near 1400. Use lighting high in an actinic spectrum and good water flow and make sure you have plenty of coralline already in the tank as starter cultures and you will grow coralline. This stuff is nothing more than your substrate, ground up so save your money and do things the right way. There are no magic products for growing coralline.
