TROPIC MARIN CARBO-CALCIUM 700G

After dissolving, one single solution can cover all the calcium and carbonate hardness requirements of a typical reef aquarium without undesirable additional compounds or excess carbon dioxide being produced. This ensures strong growth of corals, coralline algae and other reef organisms. 100 g (3.5 oz.) of Carbo-calcium Powder containing more than 30,000 mg of calcium and more than 4,000 °dH.

This high-yield product is suitable for all tank sizes and prevents the side effects of other methods of calcium hardness: the pH remains stable; there is no excess CO2 and there is no risk of unwanted phosphates being introduced through coral breakage. In addition, there is neither a creeping increase in salinity nor increased oxygen consumption through carbon compounds. After mixing, the resulting solution is suitable for both manual dosages and for dosing pumps.

Benefits:

• Extremely high yield: 700g Carbo-calcium contains 215 g calcium and > 30,000 alkalinity (°dH)
• The pH value remains completely stable
• No phosphates or surplus CO2 are added to the aquarium
• The salinity remains constant (no sodium chloride is created)
• No danger caused by oxygen depletion
• Suitable for all tank sizes
• After mixing, the resulting solution is suitable for both manual dosage and for dosing pumps

How to Use

The 700 g (1.5 lbs.) can of Carbo-calcium Powder is sufficient for 5 l/1.3 US-gal. liquid solution, the 1400 g (3 lbs.) can for 10 l/2.6 US-gal. liquid solution.

6 level measuring spoons (approx. 140 g/5 oz.) of Carbo-calcium Powder are dissolved in 1 l/0.26 US-gal. reverse osmosis water to create the liquid mineral solution. This solution has a long shelf-life and contains 43,000 mg of calcium and 6,000 °dH.

You can now start with daily doses of 5 ml of the mineral solution for every 100 l/26 US-gal. aquarium system volume. Monitor the alkalinity level as you increase the daily dosage by 2.5 ml for every 100 l/26 US-gal. aquarium system volume every week until you reach a constant alkalinity level of 7 to 9 °dH.

Maximum dose: 25 ml per 100 l/26 US-gal. aquarium system volume daily..

700 g/1.5 lbs. can (for 5 l/1.3 US-gal. liquid solution)
