Brightwell Aquatics Ferrion - Liquid Iron Supplement for Reef Aquaria and Refugia 500ml / 17oz Information




Do you plan on giving your saltwater reef tank a makeover? You might like to have a reef tank that has more organisms that help in photosynthesis or the natural production of oxygen. Reef tanks often contains corals and other life forms to give you a small picture of the complex relationships that occur in the natural environment.

The saltwater or marine kind of reef aquariums also contains macroalgae, helpful organisms which can produce oxygen and help the other aquarium life forms to continue functioning properly. There are many brands of iron solutions which you can put in your reef aquariums to help your macroalgae grow, but you should check out Brightwell Aquatics Ferrion - Liquid Iron Supplement For Reef Aquaria And Refugia Pet Store. It contains a concentrated iron solution stronger than other brands currently in the market.

It also contains purified water and other pure substances. Besides the helping in the growth of the photosynthetic macroalgae, the solution can also be used in mud systems or refugia that uses algae to filter the harmful substances that can accumulate in aquariums. It is formulated by Brightwell Aquatics, a world leaders in coming up with high quality scientific products that can help in the care of aquarium water. To help in the growth of algae and other photosynthetic organisms that will help keep the water in your marine reef aquarium clean and healthy, look for Brightwell Aquatics Ferrion - Liquid Iron Supplement For Reef Aquaria And Refugia.

Overview
  • Highly-concentrated and stable iron solution for supplementing aquaria containing hermatypic organisms (i.e. “photosynthetic” or zooxanthellate corals, clams, and their allies), macroalgae, coralline algae, mangroves, marsh grasses, and other desirablemarine algae and plants.
  • Particularly suited to systems outfitted with a refugium or mud system.
  • Stronger than most competing products.
  • Composed of purified water and ultra-high purity materials.
  • Formulated by a marine scientist.
Technical Background
Photosynthesis is carried out within cell bodies known as Chloroplasts. Iron is utilized in the electron transport chain within the chloroplasts, and is therefore required by photosynthetic organisms for continued functioning and health. In marine aquaria, these organisms include macroalgae (such as Caulerpa, Halimeda, and Penicillus spp.), marsh grasses and mangroves, encrusting calcareous algae, and the symbiotic zooxanthellae and zoochlorellae that reside within the tissues of hermatypic corals, clams, and their allies, as well as in some sponges. In effect, the availability of iron becomes a limiting factor in the rate of photosynthesis, and hence the rate of nutrient uptake and growth, for these organisms. While each aquarium will require different concentrations of iron, a good place to begin is within a range of 0.05 - 0.10 ppm; this will generally provide sufficient iron for the photosynthetic organisms present in the system. Some aquaria may require, or benefit from, iron concentrations greater than 0.10 ppm, however greatly exceeding this level is not recommended. The best method of determining the optimal iron concentration for an aquarium is to begin at 0.05 ppm and then gradually (i.e. over a period of weeks) increase the concentration as warranted by the appearance of the aquarium. Phosphate is a substance that encourages growth of algae under the environmental conditions commonly found in marine aquaria, and overdosing iron in the presence of excessive phosphate may result in algal proliferation; for this reason, the concentration of phosphate in a marine aquarium should be maintained as close to immeasurable as possible.
The rate at which iron is extracted from the water is determined by the stocking density of photosynthetic organisms, type of lighting, and other conditions. Once the rate of iron uptake in the aquarium has been determined, the proper dosing rate of this product can be easily calculated.

Instructions and Guidelines
Basic: Shake product well before using. Add 5 ml (1 capful) of product per 50 US-gallons of aquarium water every other day or as needed to maintain the iron concentration within a range of 0.05 - 0.10 ppm. When used in this fashion, 250 ml treats up to 2,500 US-gallons (9,464 L).
Advanced: Determine the iron concentration in the aquarium using an accurate test kit before supplementing. Shake this product well before using. Each ml of Ferrion will increase the concentration of iron (“[Fe3+]”) in 1 US-gallon (3.785 L) of water by 1 ppm. It is advisable to ensure that the concentration of phosphate not exceed 0.05 ppm in the aquarium to be dosed with an iron supplement; see opposite sidebar for additional information. If the initial [Fe3+] in the aquarium is below 0.10 ppm, add this product at the maximum rate of 10 ml per 20 US-gallons daily until the desired concentration is attained, then dose daily or weekly as needed (see below). Always attempt to maintain the [Fe3+] within a range of +/-0.02 ppm. To determine the dosing rate of this product once the desired [Fe3+] has been acquired, measure the daily rate of iron uptake (i.e. the decrease in iron) in your aquarium by measuring the aquarium`s [Fe3+] at the same time each day over a one- to two-week period. To determine the daily dosing rate (preferable to weekly dosing) for iron maintenance: estimate the volume of water in the entire aquarium system; multiply this numb

Comments: My goniapora was not expanding, thought I was going to lose it. Read about iron supplement and thought I would try. It's been two weeks, so a bit early to confirm, but so far, the goniapora as well as the other corals appear to be responding in a positive manner.

Comments: Very pleased with this iron suppliment as I have after a year or two finally been able to grow cheato algae in my refugium. I tried I don't know how many times ordering over and over half pounds of the cheato but always after a couple of weeks the algae would die. I started useing the ferrion and now the algae grows wild. Would highly reccomend this product to anyone interested in setting up a refugium.

Comments: In a few days after first use I noticed a vibrant difference to the good of my macro algae in my reef tank but the down side is that the few colonies of bubble algae are aslo showing a marked improvement. This is the case with any manufacturer's iron additive however.

Comments: An often overlooked ingredient for many of your reef tank organism. I have only been using this brand a short time, so the jury is still out, but so far so good! In general, Brightwell makes some of the highest quality stuff around!
