ALKAREEF+ | Reef Aquarium Alkalinity | Prodibio

1 review

ALKAREEF+ is a liquid solution that helps maintain alkalinity and pH at their optimum level in the reef aquarium by providing carbonate ions.

Description

The pH is one of the essential parameters to monitor in a reef aquarium, indeed significant variations in its level are dangerous for the organisms that live there. In this environment, carbonate and hydrogen carbonate ions are mainly responsible for the overall alkalinity and, through their buffering power, contribute to limiting these undesirable pH variations.

However, carbonate and hydrogen carbonate ions are also used by calcifying species, such as corals and encrusting algae, to form the calcium carbonate of their rigid structures. It is therefore essential to add these ions on a regular basis in a reef aquarium.

ALKA REEF+ provides carbonate ions to maintain the alkalinity level of your aquarium at its optimum. It works in synergy with CALCI REEF+, calcium hydrogel with progressive release of hydrogen carbonate ions. The combination of these two products generates an ionic balance close to that of natural seawater.

ALKA REEF+ does not contain gluconates

Use

It is important to regularly measure the alkalinity of your aquarium and readjust it between 2.5 and 4.0 meq/L (i.e. 125-200 ppm CaCO3 or 7.0-11.2 d°KH).

The quantity of ALKA REEF+ to be used must be adapted to each aquarium and cannot be generalized.

It is recommended to add 2 doses of ALKAREEF+ for 1 dose of CALCIREEF+.

Wait at least half an hour between adding ALKAREEF+ and CALCIREEF+.

Ready-to-use liquid solution. Shake vigorously before use.

To be poured into the flow of the current.

Dosing

2 ml of ALKAREEF + contain 21 mg of carbonates and raise the Alkalinity by 1°KH for 10 L of water.

We process orders Monday through Wednesday. In addition orders are shipped via FedEx though various services; FedEx Overnight, Fedex 2 Day Shipping, and Fedex Home Delivery or Ground for commercial addresses.

Our bottles are FDA approved for food contact, strong, lightweight, and completely recyclable. Rest assured keeping your reef adequately fed is environmentally friendly.

If you're not ready to use your tisbe or apo copepods once you receive them you can store them by removing the cap and storing them at room temperature out of direct sunlight.

For Rotifers, and Tig pods remove the cap and store them in the fridge until ready.

Tisbe copepods reproduce extremely well in a reef tank. Keep in mind that the ability to establish a population depends on reproduction exceeding predation. Therefore if you have a lot of predation based on your reef tank stock, it's important to introduce an adequate amount.

The best time to introduce copepods is once the tank inhabitants are not very active. This would be once the lights are off after they have been fed heavily. They can be introduce into the display, back chamber of an all in one, or in a refugium.

No problem, just here over here and reach out to us and we'll get back to you with the best approach to keeping your reef thriving.

Make sure to give us enough information about your tank.
