CARBOCALCIUM POWDER

Product description:

Ultra-concentrated crystalline calcium and carbonate hardness to be dissolved in water

Tropic Marin ® Carbocalcium Powder is ultra- concentrated crystalline calcium and carbonate hardness to be dissolved in reverse osmosis water to produce the well-known Carbo-Calcium solution. With this unique solution, the entire calcium and carbonate hardness requirements of a typical reef aquarium can be covered, and it ensures vigorous growth of stony corals, red calcareous algae and other reef organisms. 100 g carbocalcium powder contains more than 30,000 mg calcium and more than 4,000 ° dH.

The highly productive product is suitable for all pool sizes and avoids the side effects of other methods of lime hardening: With Carbocalcium powder, the pH value remains stable; there is no excess of CO 2 and there is no risk of unwanted phosphates being introduced via coral breakage. In addition, there is neither a creeping increase in salinity nor increased oxygen consumption due to carbon compounds. The solution produced is suitable for both manual dosing and dosing pumps.

The advantages at a glance:

Extremely high yield: 700g carbocalcium contain 215 g calcium and> 30,000 ° dH
The pH value remains absolutely stable
Does not bring phosphates or excess CO 2 into the aquarium
The salinity remains constant
No risk of oxygen depletion
Suitable for all pool sizes
Manufactured solution suitable for manual dosing as well as for dosing pumps

 

Recommended use:

The 700 g can of carbocalcium powder is sufficient for 5 liters of dosing solution, the 1400 g can for 10 liters of dosing solution.

To prepare the liquid mineral mixture, 6 level measuring spoons (approx. 140 g) of carbocalcium powder are dissolved in 1 l of reverse osmosis water. This solution has a long shelf life and contains approx. 43,000 mg calcium and 6,000 ° carbonate hardness.

Then start with a daily dosage of 5 ml of the mineral solution per 100 l aquarium volume. Increase the daily dosage - while checking the carbonate hardness - weekly by 2.5 ml per 100 l aquarium volume until you achieve a constant carbonate hardness of 7 to 9 ° dH.

Maximum dosage: 25 ml per 100 l aquarium volume daily.
