Natural alkalinity and calcium concentrations are of special importance to ensure optimum growth and well-being of many invertebrates and calcareous algae in an aquarium. In many reef aquaria an increase of alkalinity and a decrease of calcium often occur. With Tropic Marin Alca-Balance, the alkalinity can be easily reduced to 6° to 9° dKH while the calcium concentration can be raised to a natural level simultaneously.
Application and dosage: one level spoonful (4 g) for each 100 l aquarium water equals a reduction of alkalinity of about 1.5° dKH or a rise in the calcium concentration by 10 ppm. With a reduction of the alkalinity, the corals and calcareous algae will utilize calcium effectively. Maximum recommended dosage is two level spoons of Tropic Marin Alca-Balance per 100 l of water per day.Do you have questions about this article ?
