Strontium

Supplement containing highly concentrated strontium. 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 eficiencies in aquarium water.

 

Dosage

10 ml of the product increases the strontium level by 1 mg/l (ppm) in 100 litres (27 US gal) of water. Recommended level: 6.00 – 10.00 mg/l (ppm). Recommended dosage: 0.5 ml/100 l (27 US gal) of water daily. Please remember, that maximum safe daily dose is 10 ml per 100 litres of water. If you need a higher dose, split it into a few days. 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.
