Key Features

  • Increases the bioavailability of the calcium
  • Provides a rich source of metabolic energy
  • Maintains peak coral growth
  • Prevents calcium precipitation/alkalinity depletion
  • Will not lead to algae growth in a properly maintained reef system
  • i500 mL / 17 fl. oz. (Treats 8000 L (2115 US Gallons))

Reef Calcium is a concentrated (50,000 mg/L) bioavailable polygluconate complexed calcium intended to maintain calcium in the reef aquarium without altering pH. Polygluconate complexation confers several benefits: it increases the bioavailability of the calcium, it provides a rich source of metabolic energy to help maintain peak coral growth, and it prevents calcium precipitation/alkalinity depletion. Polygluconate contains no nitrogen or phosphorous, thus it is biologically impossible for it to lead to algae growth in a properly maintained reef system. Guaranteed Analysis (Amounts per 1 g): Calcium (min) 50 mg, Calcium (max) 52 mg, Ingredients: calcium gluconate

DIRECTIONS: Add 1 capful (5 mL) per 80 L (20 gallons*) twice a week. You can increase the dose or frequency based on growth response but do not exceed 3 capfuls per 80 L (20 gallons*) per day. Each dose will raise calcium by about 3 mg/L. HINTS: Use the Reef Status: Calcium test kit to measure calcium. It is not necessary to exceed 380 mg/L total calcium when using this product. Color and clarity may vary between lots.

Description

Seachem Reef Calcium 8.5 oz

Reef Calcium is a concentrated (50,000 mg/L) bioavailable polygluconate complexed calcium intended to maintain calcium in the reef aquarium without altering pH. Additionally, polygluconate contains no nitrogen or phosphorous, thus it is biologically impossible for it to lead to algae growth in a properly maintained reef system. Reef Calcium utilizes a chained organic calcium rather than an ionic calcium. When a coral absorbs a molecule into its tissue, it uses the same amount of energy regardless of molecular size. However, charged molecules require more energy. When an uncharged molecule of Reef Calcium is absorbed, the coral acquires multiple calcium atoms as well as an easily metabolized carbohydrate with less energy expended than it uses for ionic calcium uptake. Therefore, at lower calcium levels, corals can still take in as much calcium through our organic chains as they would at much higher levels of ionic calcium.

Directions: Add 1 capful (5 mL) per 80 L (20 US gallons) twice a week. You can increase the amount or frequency based on growth response but do not exceed 3 capfuls per 80 L (20 gallons) per day. Each capful will raise calcium by about 3 mg/L.
