Seachem Reef Carbonate,

Seachem Reef Carbonate,

Seachem Reef Carbonate is a concentrated (4,000 meq/L) optimized blend of carbonate and bicarbonate salts designed to restore and maintain alkalinity in the reef aquarium. Reef Carbonate is made with a blend of carbonate and bicarbonate salts, and will not deplete calcium, magnesium, or strontium, which usually tend to precipitate with increasing alkalinity. Features: Raises carbonate alkalinity (KH) Concentrated (4,000 meq/L) Made with a blend of carbonate and bicarbonate salts Intended For: Aquariums Instructions: BEGINNER: Use 1 capful (5 mL) per 80 L (20 gallons) twice a week. Best if diluted into a cup of freshwater, then added. Check alkalinity every 2 weeks and adjust amount or frequency accordingly. ADVANCED: Check alkalinity, then follow addition regimen above until alkalinity is adjusted to 45 meq/L. Each mL contains a minimum of 4 meq of alkalinity. Each 5 mL/80 L will raise alkalinity by about 0.25 meq/L. Amount orfrequency can be adjusted, but do not exceed 20 mL/80 L per day. Thereafter, use as required to maintain alkalinity. EXPERT: After determining the alkalinity consumption rate, set up a continuous drip system. Use the following formula to determine how much to add to your topoff water: m=va/4 (m=mL of product to add to top off water, v=volume of tank in liters, a=amount to raise alkalinity in meq/L). For example, if you want to raise alkalinity by 1 meq/L in a 200 liter tank, then you would add (200x1)/4=50 mL into the topoff water. [For reference: 1 gallon=3.8 L]. NOTES: Best to pour in gradually near strong water movement. Do not add to a sump or other area of slow water exchange. Use MultiTest: Marine pH & Alkalinity to measure total alkalinity or Reef Status Magnesium, Carbonate & Borate to measure carbonate alkalinity. DO NOT OVERDOSE: Excess alkalinity may enhance the loss of calcium, magnesium, and strontium. Do not directly mix with any calcium, magnesium, or strontium supplement. Best if calcium & carbonate additives are added on alternate days or at least 30 minutes apart. Size: Large.
