Reef Advantage Strontium restores marine tank strontium levels to the levels found naturally in seawater. This concentrated, dry saltwater supplement replaces the strontium depleted by filtration and heavy coral stocking. Helps replicate a more natural environment for your saltwater tank inhabitants and maintains optimum water quality. Ionically-balanced, no pre-dissolving necessary. 1.2 kg bottle treats 8,000 gallons.
BEGINNER: Use a level teaspoon per 150 L (40 gallons) twice a week. May be added directly to tank. ADVANCED: Check strontium level, then follow dosing regimen above until strontium is adjusted to 8–12 mg/L. Each dose will raise strontium by about 2 mg/L. Size or frequency of dose can be adjusted. Thereafter, use as required to maintain strontium. EXPERT: After determining the strontium depletion rate, set up a continuous drip system. Use the following formula to determine how much to add to your top-off water: t=0.02vs (t=teaspoons to add to top off water, v=volume of tank in gallons, s=amount to raise strontium in mg/L). For example, if you want to raise strontium by 8 mg/L in a 50 gallon tank, then you would add 0.02x50x8=8 teaspoons into the top-off water.
DO NOT OVERDOSE: Excess strontium may enhance the loss of carbonate alkalinity. Do not directly mix with any carbonate supplement. Best if strontium & carbonate additives are added on alternate days or at least 30 minutes apart.
