By far one of the easiest ways to dose balanced solutions calcium, alkalinity, and magnesium along with all other major and minor elements corals will need for health and vitality. The proportions are based on the Balling Method and can be dosed manually or through a dosing pump system.
- 5000 mL Component 1+
- 5000 mL Component 2+
- 5000 mL Component 3+
If you use a system like the Probiotic or Balling system, you will want to give the Component 1+, 2+, 3+ system a try for the addition of essential elements. It is by far one of the easiest systems to hook up to a 3 pump dosing system to maintain all major and minor trace elements in a reef tank. Each component contains a balanced mixture of elements that blend well together, and will not precipitate in the storage jugs.
**Must choose overweight shipping method**
Component 1+, 2+, 3+ can be used with:
- SPS corals
- LPS Corals
- Soft Corals
- Clams & other filter feeders
Dosing will vary per your aquariums demand for trace elements. For an average reef tank, the starting dose will be around 50 mL for every 100 liters (27 gal) of aquarium water (per component every day). We suggest testing your calcium, alkalinity, and magnesium levels for proper stability and adjusting accordingly.
Note: Dosing components too quickly together may cause precipitation. We recommend 1 hour between each components addition, helping prevent elements from falling out of solution.
Component 1+: Ca, Mg, Sr, Ba, Co, Mn, Cu, Fe, Zn, Ni, and Cr
Component 2+: NaHCO3, F, and I
Component 3+: Mineral salts, K, and Bo.
