||Raise and maintain calcium and alkalinity levels in reef aquariums
||Provide vital calcium to hard and soft corals and other reef invertebrates
||Encourage healthy coral growth and lush growth of coralline algae
The original calcium supplementation method for reef systems. Supplies bio-available calcium for lush growth of purple, pink, and green calcareous algae, snails, hard tube worms, and clams. Contains no gluconates, EDTA, or other organics and is phosphate and nitrate free. With regular use, corals will open more and provide additional long-term results no other calcium supplement can offer. Use 1/8 (minimum) to 2 teaspoons (maximum) Kalkwasser Mix per gallon of fresh water for a stock solution. Use drip system or dosing pump to dispense into aquarium system.
For best results adjust system KH to 8 to 10 dKH with Superbuffer-dKH or Marine Aquarium pHoBuffer first.
Directions for Use:
Add 1/8 minimum to 2 teaspoons maximum powder per gallon of fresh water for a stock solution. Let stand for several hours.
Use drip method or dosing pump to drip into system on a continual basis to replace all water lost to evaporation.
Only mix enough to last a week. A white precipitate may form on the bottom of the container. Above this is the clear calcareous water that should be added SLOWLY to the aquarium. When added slowly, Kalkwasser Mix does not cause pH to rise significantly, but measure pH regularly to monitor pH level.
Contents: Calcium hydroxide.
Considerations for Use:
If you add a teaspoon or more of Kalkwasser Mix per gallon of water for your stock solution, a crust will probably form on the top of the water in your container. This is normal and it will act to impede the diffusion of carbon dioxide into the kalkwasser solution. This will assist in keeping the kalkwasser solution fresh.
Dosing: NEVER mix Kalkwasser Mix with any buffer. Kalkwasser Mix should be dosed alone. If you mix it with trace minerals, many of them may precipitate out of solution.
Kalkwasser Mix can be used with Kent Marine Concentrated Liquid Calcium or Turbo-Calcium for maximum results. Strontium addition via use of Kent Marine Strontium & Molybdenum Supplement or Turbo-Strontium is absolutely necessary, as well. Use of Coral-Vite, and Essential Elements are also beneficial for maximum results.
