With Tropic Marin Carbo-Calcium, the total calcium and carbonate hardness needs of a typical reef aquarium can be covered with a single solution, without any additional unwanted compounds or excess carbon dioxide being created.
- The calcium and carbonate supply is possible with only a single solution.
- Suitable for all aquarium sizes.
- No formation of by-products.
- The salinity and the ion balance are not altered.
- No formation of excess carbon dioxide.
- Easy to apply – suitable for manual and dosing pumps.
Minerals are consumed through the growth of organisms and other processes in the aquarium and must therefore be supplemented regularly. These include mainly calcium and carbonate hardness elements for the growth of the calcareous skeletons of stony corals, red coralline algae and other reef organisms. The special co-ordinated components in Tropic Marin® Carbo-Calcium provide excellent care conditions in only a single solution.
Tropic Marin Carbo-Calcium prevents all the side effects of other methods of calcium hardness: the pH remains stable; there is no excess CO2 and there is no risk of unwanted phosphates being introduced through coral breakage. In addition, there is neither a creeping increase in salinity, nor increased oxygen consumption through carbon compounds.
Complete mineral supply in only one component. The most important trace elements are already included (all elements of the Tropic Marin® K+ Elements & A- Elements). No formation of by-products (e.g. sodium chloride); the salinity and the ion balance are not altered. No formation of excess carbon dioxide. Suitable for an aquarium stocked with soft corals, LPS, SPS, other filter feeders and/or crustaceans. Easy to apply – suitable both for manual dosing and for dosing pumps after dissolving.
With these components and balanced in its concentration ratio, Tropic Marin® All-For-Reef creates the best care conditions with just one solution. There are no additional compounds (e.g. sodium chloride) that alter the salinity or ion balance.
Start with a daily dose of 5 ml of Tropic Marin® Carbo-Calcium per 100 litres (26 US-gal) of aquarium system volume. Increase the daily dosage – by continuous control of the alkalinity – weekly by 2.5 ml per 100 litres (26 US-gal) of aquarium system volume, until a constant carbonate hardness of 7 to 9 °dH is reached. At the same time, check the calcium concentration in the aquarium – it should be between 400-440 mg/l.
Do not exceed a maximum daily dose of 25 ml of Tropic Marin® Carbo-Calcium per 100 litres (26 US-gal) of aquarium system volume. 1000 ml Tropic Marin® Carbo-Calcium contain 40,000 mg calcium and 5,600 °carbonate hardness. Use the new dosing calculator for an easy determination of the required amount of dosage for your aquarium. To refill this solution we recommend the new product Tropic Marin® Carbo-Calcium Powder which has to be dissolved in reverse osmosis water.
Tropic Marin® CARBOCALCIUM contains organic calcium salts. 1000 ml CARBOCALCIUM contain 40,000 mg calcium and 5,600 °carbonate hardness.
To refill this solution we recommend the new product Tropic Marin® Carbocalcium Powder which has to be dissolved in reverse osmosis water. To further intensify the colour of the corals, we recommend the trace elements solutions K+ ELEMENTS and A- ELEMENTS from Tropic Marin®.
