Aquaforest KH Plus Lab 1l & 2 Litres

The highest concentrated solution for raising carbonate hardness in marine aquariums. KH Plus was created for maintaining sudden carbonate hardness drops and restoring the ionic balance in the aquarium. The proper value of carbonate ions is necessary for healthy coral growth and for building skeletons. Due to the presence of carbonate ions, maintaining stable pH level is possible.

Dosage: 10 ml of KH Plus solution raises carbonate hardness by 0.5 dKH in 100 l (27 US gal) of water. Carbonate hardness in a reef aquarium should be about 6.5 -8.5 dKH. Do not raise dKH more than 0.5 dKH per 24 hours.
Please ensure your magnesium level is within the recommended range before attempting to raise or adjust your calcium and alkalinity levels.

Aquaforest MG Plus Lab 1l & 2 Litres

The highest concentrated formula for raising magnesium levels in marine aquariums. Mg Plus is created for managing shortages and sudden drops of magnesium levels. Magnesium is necessary for healthy and balanced growth of corals. The appropriate level of magnesium in the tank water provides corals better absorption of calcium. A reduced level of magnesium may cause an inability to maintain proper calcium levels and a lowered pH. The recommended magnesium level in reef aquariums is 1180 – 1460 mg/l (ppm).

Dosage: 10 ml of the product increases the magnesium level by 10 mg/l (ppm) in 100 litres (27 US gal) of water.

Dosage should be based on magnesium consumption. Note, that each aquarium is different and final dosage depends on the coral cast and individual aquarium needs. Both, deficiency and excess micronutrients will affect aquarium inhabitants, therefore dosage should be selected and modified on the basis of regular Aquaforest Lab water tests.

Aquaforest Strontium Lab 1 Litre

Supplement containing highly concentrated strontium and barium. Strontium, after calcium and magnesium, is one of the most important elements needed for growth of hard corals. Strontium supports the formation of hard coral skeletal tissue and significantly improves the calcium absorption. It also supports the growth of soft corals. In a closed aquarium system, skimmer and filtration media remove strontium deposits from the water, therefore its supplementation is necessary.

In order to ensure that the aquarium conditions are as close as possible to the natural ones, the preparation was enriched with the addition of barium, which is also present and significant in seawater. Thanks to the appropriate proportions, Strontium effectively complements the strontium and barium deficiencies in aquarium water and guarantees the perfect ratio of these elements.

Dosage: 10 ml of the product increases the strontium level by 1 mg/l (ppm) in 100 litres (27 US gal) of water. The recommended level of strontium in aquarium water is  6.00 – 10.00 mg/l (ppm).
