Out of all elements corals need, calcium is the one they need the most. Corals use up calcium during the formation and succeeding growth of their exoskeletons. Aside from that, corals also depend on calcium for maintaining their health. Without calcium, corals simply would not thrive for very long. Their health will decline fast.
Because calcium levels vary in aquariums without outside influence, it is essential to have a product that keeps the calcium levels high. Such a product is the Seachem Reef Advantage Calcium from Pet Store
, a solution that contains a great and optimal blend of calcium used to restore depleted calcium levels in coral tanks.
Aside from calcium, the Seachem Reef Advantage Calcium also has strontium and magnesium in the right ratios to calcium to ensure that alkalinity will not be depleted while calcium is being replenished. This product does not have caustic pH levels that could harm the ideal pH levels of aquariums
Use one teaspoon for every 150 liters of water twice in a week. Make sure to dissolve it in a cup of freshwater. From there, check calcium levels for two weeks and adjust the amount of the product according to need. Once you reach the desired level, use the product for maintenance.
Seachem Reef Advantage Calcium ™ is equivalent to dry Reef Complete™. It is a non-caustic (pH 8.3-8.6) optimized blend of ionic calcium designed to restore and maintain calcium to levels found in natural seawater. Calcium and carbonates are essential to all coral growth. If either becomes deficient, coral growth will cease, followed by a rapid decline in coral health. Reef Advantage Calcium™ also includes magnesium and strontium in amounts proportionate to typical utilization ratios (100:5:0.1, Ca:Mg:Sr). This allows one to maintain these two important elements while maintaining calcium. If either usage or precipitative loss results in a more rapid loss of either magnesium or strontium, then Reef Advantage Magnesium™, Reef Advantage Strontium™, or Reef Strontium™ may be employed. Unlike limewater (kalkwasser), Reef Advantage Calcium™ does not have a caustic pH and will not deplete magnesium. Used as directed, it will not deplete alkalinity. 500 g treats 16,000 L (4,000 gallons).
