Red Sea Reef Foundation ABC+ Supplement (Ca/Sr/KH/Mg/K/Br) Information
A successful coral reef aquarium depends on how well you maintain the water parameters which are the key to a stable coral environment. All of the elements found in natural seawater play a role in providing optimal water parameters, but some are more significant than others. These elements, the foundation of the reef environment, include the three major elements: Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg) and Carbonates (CO3). All three have a major effect on water chemistry (pH stability, Alkalinity, ionic strength) and on many of the coral’s biological processes (skeleton formation, ions exchange, photosynthesis).
The foundation elements complement each other in the formation of coral skeleton. If not balanced correctly one of the elements will quickly limit healthy coral growth.
Reef Foundation A: Contains Calcium, Strontium, and Barium according to the ratios found in coral skeleton. Concentration: 1ml will raise the Ca level of 100 liters (25 gal) by 2ppm
Reef Foundation B (Alk): A complex of carbonate and other buffers present in seawater that maintain proper alkalinity and pH. Concentration: 1ml will raise the alkalinity of 100 liters (25gal) by 0.36 meq/l (1dKH)
Reef Foundation C (Mg): A blend of Magnesium salts. Concentration: 1ml will raise the Mg level of 100 liters (25gal) by 1ppm.
**Please Note** This reef supplement simplifies daily dosing by combining Reef Foundation A, B & C in to one powder.

Comments: I use this stuff for supplementation of lps,sps corals. It is perfect for balancing out my water parameters I buy damaged or sick corals from lfs and bring them not only back from the dead but get them to thrive and multiply. I would not be able to do so well without Red Sea abc+ foundation . If your a beginner or expert I would recommend all aquarists use this product for a happy and healthy coral reef ecosystem.

Comments: This product is worthless! All of the supplements that are listed are included however that are all combined into one powder!! This means that you cant adjust your levels independently of one another. I cant see any scenario that this product would be worth using because a reef aquarium doesnt use all the elements at the exact same rate.
