Aquaforest Component 1+ 2+ 3+ (3x5L Tubs)
Chemical composition of Component 1+2+3+ is based on the method developed by H. Balling. The formula has been fine-tuned in our lab and enriched with trace elements that are fundamental for maintaining marine aquarium organisms in good form. As a result, we have composed 3 fluids that are intended for dosing in equal amounts on a regular basis. Component 1+2+3+ is designed to fulfil coral demands not only in terms of Magnesium and Calcium but also in terms of other elements which require careful and systematic dosing but are notoriously difficult to assess.
Dosage: needs to be adjusted according to the consumption of macro-nutrients, and based on critical water parameters like Calcium, Magnesium and KH. If one or two parameters are still not balanced- we recommend continuing with administering equal doses of each component and take advantage of one of our additives (Calcium, Magnesium, KH Buffer) to restore desired level(s).
In order to maintain an adequate amount of trace elements in aquarium water, both Magnesium and Calcium levels need to be within the recommended range (Ca 400-440 mg/L, Mg 1280-1350 mg/L) Typical aquarium with the average number of hard corals requires approximately
Typical aquarium with an average number of hard corals requires approximately 25ml of each component per 100 l (27 US gal) of water daily.
Component 1+ contains: Ca, Sr, Ba, Co, Mn, Cu, Fe, Zn, Ni, Cr. (25ml dissolved in 100 l/27 US gal raises Ca by 4,5 mg).
Component 2+ contains: NaHCO3, F, I. (25ml dissolved in 100 l/27 US gal raises KH by 0,65 dKH (Alk: 0,23 meg/l)).
Component 3+ contains Mg, Reef Mineral Salt, K and B. (25ml dissolved in 100 l/27 US gal raises Mg by 3 mg/l).
