|Description: Provides calcium for Hard and Soft
Type: Marine Water Conditioner
Available From ROL In: 236ml
Part Numbers: KMLC
Description: Concentrated Liquid
Calcium provides bio-available calcium for lush growth of
purple, pink and green calcareous algaes, snails, hard tube
worms and clams. Corals will open more and stay attached to
their skeletons better, with regular use. Phosphate &
nitrate free! Contains no gluconates, EDTA, or other organics
to raise DOC levels, as many competing products do.
Concentrated Liquid Calcium alone can provide all the calcium
your reef will need, but for maximum results, use Kent
Kalkwasser Mix first, then raise calcium level with
this product. Strontium addition via use of Kent Marine
Strontium & Molybdenum Supplement is absolutely necessary.
Use of CoralVite, and Essential Elements are
beneficial, as well.
Directions: Add ¼ to 1 teaspoon (1/4
to 1 capful or 1.25 to 5 ml) per 50 gallons (190 l) of tank
capacity each day, based on animal load. Since animals use
calcium, and gallons do not, regular testing of calcium level
by a good calcium test kit (HachTM brand is recommended) is
advised. Adjust amount of addition of the product to achieve a
calcium level of about 400 mg/l. A higher level may result in
rapid calcium compound precipitation and deposits which can
possibly be destructive to pumps and other sensitive system
equipment. It is recommended that you regularly check
impellers and other delicate equipment for calcium deposits if
you run higher (above 400 mg/l) system calcium levels! For
best results adjust system KH to 8 to 10 dKH with
Superbuffer-dKH or Marine Aquarium pHBuffer.
Calcium Testing Suggestion: Calcium
testing in marine systems is fraught with difficulties. Test
kits generally dont work well in the ranges that we run in
reefs and many ions in marine water interfere with the kit. If
your calcium level does not make sense, try diluting the
aquarium water sample 50/50 with distilled, deionized or R/O
water and testing. Multiply the result by 2. This will both
save on valuable reagents in your kit and generally give a
more accurate reading. (You may want to consult with the kit
manufacturer to determine that doing this will give valid
results with your brand of kit).
