+ creates nature identical conditions in aquarium
+ supplies essentially strontium and carbon dioxide in natural and biologically-available form
+ do not disturb the ionic balance (in contrast to the single addition of strontium chloride)
+ only natural substances are formed when dissolved: no chelates, no phosphates, no nitrates
Application of Tropic Marin Bio-Strontium:
When using the enclosed dosage spoon, level the Tropic Marin Bio-Strontium with the spatula for a precise measurement. Sprinkle one level measuring spoon full of Tropic Marin Bio-Strontium directly on the surface of the aquarium or sump water, while stirring with your hand or a non-metallic object. Wait for each spoonful to dissolve completely before adding the next.
One level measuring spoon increases the strontium level of 10 US Gal./37 l by about 2 ppm (= 2 mg/l). The natural concentration of seawater is 8 ppm (= 8 mg/l). In a reef aquarium the concentration of strontium decreases quickly through biological processes, precipitation and the use in the calcareous animals. A basic dosage of 1 level measuring spoon per 50 US Gal./190 l every two weeks is recommended. In an aquarium with a high population, the dosage can be as much as 1 level measuring spoon per 50 US Gal./190 l each week. High strontium concentrations in the aquarium may damage corals. Always be sure to monitor the strontium concentration.
