Seachem Reef Builder raises carbonate alkalinity without immediately impacting on pH. Carbonates and calcium are essential to all coral growth. If either becomes deficient, coral growth will cease, followed by a rapid decline in coral health. Seachem Reef Builder helps prevent this with essential minerals to maintain reef environments. It contains calcium, magnesium and strontium, which usually tends to precipitate with increasing alkalinity.
Seachem Reef Builder 300g
Directions for use:
Use 3g (half a level teaspoon) per 40 gallons twice a week. Dissolve in at least 250 mL (1 cup) of freshwater. Check alkalinity every 2 weeks and adjust amount or frequency accordingly. ADVANCED:
Check alkalinity, then follow addition regimen above until alkalinity is adjusted to 4–5 meq/L. Each 3 g/150 L will raise alkalinity by about 0.25 meq/L. Quantity or frequency can be adjusted, but do not exceed 12 g/150 L per day. Thereafter, use as required to maintain alkalinity.EXPERT:
After determining the alkalinity consumption rate, set up a continuous drip system. Use the following formula to determine how much to add to your top-off water: m=0.08va (m=grams to add to top off water, v=volume of tank in liters, a=amount to raise alkalinity in meq/L). For example, if you want to raise your alkalinity by 1 meq/L in a 200 liter tank, then you would add 0.08x200x1=16 g into the top-off water. [For reference: 1 gallon=3.8 liters, 6 g=1 teaspoon].
