Many competing buffers for reef aquaria are simply sodium bicarbonate. Such buffers have a pK or only 8.0 in saltwater and simply are unable to maintain a pH above 8.0. The low buffering pK is a function of the low carbonate/bicarbonate ratio.eight.four supplies a properly balanced (carbonate/bicarbonate) buffer system that yields an industry le...
fuel is a comprehensive carbohydrate, vitamin, amino acid, polyunsaturated fatty acid, and trace element supplement developed to address nutritional requirements commonly associated with corals. Fuel contains ascorbic acid in a base of chlorella, which contains a rich assortment of amino acids and vitamins. The health benefits of chlorella are w...
A frequent occurrence in reef systems is low pH, while calcium and alkalinity are at optimal levels. Raise one and other may fail. One of the primary reasons for this is an improper carbonate/bicarbonate ratio. The buffer ratio changes as a natural consequence of the buffer's ability to counteract acidifying sources such as organic acids (produc...
Seapora Snail Zap eliminates nuisance snails in freshwater aquariums. Remove any activated carbon from your filter, add 1 drop of Snail Zap for every gallon of aquarium water. When the snails drop to the bottom (or after a period of three days), do a thorough gravel cleaning and 10-25% water change. Replace the activated carbon filter upon compl...
Like calcium and strontium, magnesium is used in the calcification of skeletons of reef organisms. In many cases, magnesium is used in place of calcium for calcification. In addition to its role in calcification, magnesium is used by organisms ranging from bacteria to coralline algae to fish.If you've determined that your magnesium levels are lo...
Kent Marine Reef Salt is the perfect foundation for demanding enclosed reef aquariums. Compared to natural seawater, Kent Marine Reef Salt contains elevated levels of Calcium, Magnesium, Strontium, and other elements to provide the essentials required for healthy and proper coral growth, skeletal structure development, and reef vitality. Only th...

Iodide is a critical element for the health and formation of soft tissue in invertebrates (such as gorgonians, sarcophytons, etc.). It has also been shown to be critical for the developent if pigments in corals, corallimorpharia, and anemones, both the golden brown of zooxanthellae and the green and red colors of accessory pigments.Most iodide s...
Freshwater ornamental fish that are living in closed system housings have many nutritional requirements. Seachem Nourish provides the vitamins, amino acids and trace elements to support their health in this type of setting. Added Spirulina and Chlorella provide these nutritional elements as well as the nutrient potassium iodine. This is extremel...
calcification is a concentrated (140,000 mg/L) optimized blend of ionic and bioavailable gluconate-complexed calcium designed to restore and maintain calcium levels found in natural seawater, without affecting pH. These two forms of calcium are combined in calcification to provide the hobbyist with a convenient way to ensure peak coral growth an...
Carbonate hardness (KH), is a measure of the bicarbonate and carbonate content of the water. Carbonate hardness contributes to pH stability and can also act as a CO2 backup reserve if CO2 levels fall too low.Carbonate is derived from potassium bicarbonate. It increases both carbonate hardness and potassium. The concentration of carbonate is 2000...
Nitrogen is one of the three macro nutrients (NPK) required by plants. It is a component of proteins and nucleic acids. Nitrogen is mobile in plants. This means the plants divert these nutrients from older leaves to new leaves. Thus, deficiency symptoms appear in older leaves first. Nitrogen deficiency symptoms include chlorosis, slow growth, an...
