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...
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...

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...
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...

Microbe-Lift Special Blend helps to break down decaying organic matter and cycle elements like nitrogen and sulfur to prevent them from building up in your aquarium. This formula will reduce water changes and cleaning maintenance with chemical free ingredients, by lowering ammonia levels and nitrates while removing odors, clarifying water and br...
Iron is immobile in plants; this means that plants cannot deliver iron from older leaves to new ones. Therefore, deficiency symptoms appear on new or young leaves. Because plants use iron to produce chlorophyll, a lack of iron results in chlorosis, or yellowing of the younger leaves. Stems may also appear short and slender. If the deficiency is ...
Aquavitro phosfiltrum is an ultra high capacity (GFO) phosphate and silicate remover. It is harder and less fragile than other GFOs, and offers the highest binding capacity of any phosphate remover per gram! Phosfiltrum has a distinctive dark brown color.
Envy is a comprehensive carbohydrate, vitamin, amino acid, and polyunsaturated fatty acid supplement that addresses the micro and trace nutritional requirements of plants. Envy contains ascorbic acid in a base of chlorella that contains a rich assortment of amino acids and vitamins.Chlorella is a unique algae that grows in fresh water. It is ext...
A paramount factor in the proper maintenance of an aquarium is the dilution of accumulated waste by scheduled water changes. This requires the removal of chlorine and chloramine or both from the new water. With the advent of chloramine, thiosulfate has proven inadequate, causing the release of ammonia. At acid or neutral pH, this is not of serio...
