Kent Marine Strontium & Molybdenum 16 oz. Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

Natural saltwater doesn't contain just salt and water. Saltwater is actually a rich mix of different elements and compounds dissolved in water. Each component of saltwater is essential because it supports the lives of fish, corals and plants. All these elements and compounds work together to create an environment suitable for aquatic life. This is the reason why untreated tap water, though suitable for human use, is not suitable to be used as it is in an aquarium. Aquatic creatures will not thrive without the presence of the saltwater components they need. This is also the reason why a lot of different solutions for different kinds of treatment for aquariums are available in the market.

An example of a water treatment solution is Kent Marine Strontium & Molybdenum from Pet Store. Both molybdenum and strontium are chemical elements found in natural saltwater, and both are essential to the growth of snails, clams, hard-tube worms, calcareous algae and other organisms with a distinguishable exoskeleton.

Aside from molybdenum and strontium, this solution also has magnesium and potassium, which are also important elements of seawater but are lacking in other brands of commercially produced sea salts.

With regular use of Kent Marine Strontium & Molybdenum, you will notice that your corals will be able to attach to their exoskeletons much better than ever before.

Description:
Strontium & Molybdenum Supplement provides bio-available strontium for lush growth of purple, pink and green calcareous algaes, snails, hard tube worms and clams. Magnesium is added to make up for deficiencies in some of the newer brands of sea salt mixes. Potassium & molybdenum are added to assist the symbiotic algae growing in coral and other invertebrates tissues. Corals will open more and stay attached to their skeletons better, with regular use. Phosphate & nitrate free! Contains no gluconates, EDTA, or other organics to raise DOC levels, as many competing products do. For best results, Use Kent Kalkwasser Mix, or Concentrated Liquid Calcium first.


Considerations for use:
Excessive usage may result in rapid strontium compound precipitation and deposits which can possibly be destructive to pumps and other sensitive system equipment and can also deplete system alkalinity (although this is unlikely). This can endanger a stable pH, and pH may fall. Caution is therefore advised, and proper buffering via regularly measuring alkalinity (carbonate hardness or KH), and adjusting with Kent Marine Superbuffer-dKH or Kent Marine Marine Aquarium pH Buffer is absolutely necessary. For best results adjust system KH to 10 dKH with Superbuffer-dKH or Marine Aquarium pH Buffer. Use Kent Kalkwasser Mix, Concentrated Liquid Calcium or TURBO CALCIUM to keep proper calcium levels. Use Kent Coral-Vite to add important trace minerals and vitamins for corals!


Specifications

Directions:
Add one teaspoon (capful or 5 ml) per 50 gallons (190 l) of tank capacity. Adding more than the recommended amount of Strontium & Molybdenum Supplement is generally very safe and can be beneficial in many cases, particularly when you have heavy animal loads. If you decide to increase the dosage, just read the cautions below, and cut back should any adverse reactions be noticed.

Comments: I have a saltwater aquarium and use a number of additives for my corals and macro alqae. When a free bottle of Strontium got used up, I quit adding it to my regret. Many of the corals became translucent and my red macro algae turned white. I started up with the Kent Marine Strontium & Molybdenum and quickly saw an improvement in both. Clearly this can be a necessary additive for the health of a tank. I've been very happy with this product (some brands only add the Strontium) and highly recommend it.

Comments: I have a rather heavily stocked aquarium, and it's not feasible to make weekly water changes. I use this and other supplements to provide selected elements to the fish and invertebrates (snails, shrimps, hermit crabs mostly). Fish are happy and healthy, and the invertebrates grow/molt and otherwise seem to be doing well.

Comments: Everything that I have read says I need Strontium & Molybdenum for my aquarium, then every pet store I went to sales Kent. I'm a beginner and want the best I can afford for my aquarium, which isn't very much just getting started. I really look into things before I buy them and every review about Kent was good. The price isn't bad at all. Buying online saves alot of money.

Comments: This is a great product for soft and hard corals. My corals love this additive and it doesn't produce any unwanted algae growth like a lot of additives do. I would highly recommend this product to anyone. It is easy to use with great results. The price was excellent and very fast shipping.
