  • Tropic Marin Bio-Calcium

    $18.00$45.00

    Benefits:

    Biologically ideal calcium supplement for reef aquariums using the Balling Method
    The crystalline form means there is only one component instead of the usual three
    Supply calcium and alkalinity without disturbing the ionic balance
    Contains all 70 trace elements found in natural sea water
    No unnatural by-products
    Exact dosages without prior dissolving
    Will not alter pH of aquarium water when used as directed
    Without phosphates and other pollutants

    How to use:

    Bio-Calcium increases both calcium and alkalinity at the same time. Calculate the total system water volume. Each level measuring spoon will raise the calcium level of 10 US gall./36 l by approximately 28 ppm and the alkalinity by 4° KH.

    Natural sea water contains approximately 410 ppm calcium and 6.5° KH alkalinity. You should not exceed a calcium level of 440 ppm and an alkalinity of 8° KH due to the possibility of super saturation and subsequent precipitation of calcium carbonate. Maximum recommended dose is one level scoop per 10 US gall./36 l of aquarium water per day.

    Sprinkle one measuring spoon full of Tropic Marin® Bio-Calcium onto the surface of the water, where it is being circulated by your pump. Take care not to allow a larger amount of undissolved Bio-Calcium to come into contact with invertebrates. Add the supplement slowly, to avoid a clouding from localised super saturation.

    Over time, the specific gravity of the water can rise slightly. Please therefore check the specific gravity on a regular basis.

  • Tropic Marin Bio-Magnesium 450g

    $20.00

    Benefits:

    Contains a combination of magnesium and carbon dioxide to promote essential biochemical processes in the aquarium
    Supplies magnesium for accelerated skeleton growth of corals and calcareous coralline algae
    Supplies carbon dioxide for zooxanthellae to promote photosynthesis and calcareous skeleton synthesis
    Maintains the natural ionic concentration and the pH value of the reef tank water
    No unnatural by-products
    No phosphates or nitrates
    Measured amount of Magnesium in a truly ionically balanced formula

    How to use:

    The natural concentration of Magnesium is 1280-1300 ppm. Calculate the total system water volume and begin by measuring the magnesium concentration of your aquarium water. One level measuring spoon increases the magnesium level of 30 US-gallons / 110 l of tank water by about 10 ppm. The recommended maximum dose is 2 measuring spoons per 30 US-gallons / 110 l of aquarium water per day!

    Sprinkle one measuring spoon full of Tropic Marin® BIO-MAGNESIUM onto the surface of the water, where it is being circulated by your pump. Take care not to allow a larger amount of undissolved BIO- MAGNESIUM to come into contact with invertebrates. Wait for each spoonful to dissolve completely before adding the next.

    Use the new dosing calculator for an easy determination of the required amount of dosage for your aquarium.

    Check the aquarium waters specific gravity on a regular basis as this may gradually increase over time with the addition of Tropic Marin® BIO-MAGNESIUM. This is easily counteracted with regular water changes. An excessively high magnesium concentration may have a negative effect on certain organisms. For this reason it is not recommended to exceed magnesium concentrations over 1600 ppm.

    Proper magnesium and calcium concentrations are important to a healthy reef environment. Monitor these concentrations in your reef aquarium with the Tropic Marin® Calcium/Magnesium-Combitest Professional and correct deficiencies with Tropic Marin® Bio-Calcium and Tropic Marin® BIO-MAGNESIUM.

  • Tropic Marin BIO-STRONTIUM

    $22.00

    Benefits:

    Biologically ideal strontium supplement for reef aquariums
    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

    How to use:

    When using the enclosed dosage spoon, level the BIO-STRONTIUM with the spatula for a precise measurement. Sprinkle one level measuring spoon full of 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.

    Safety advice:
    Keep out of the reach of children • Irritant • Irritating to eyes and skin • Do not breathe dust • Avoid contact with skin.

  • Tropic Marin Original Balling Liquid Set 3 x 1000ml

    $40.00

    Benefits:

    For a convenient and highly efficient liquid supply of calcium using the Balling method
    The set consists of three salt solutions A, B and C according to the well-known Balling method
    The separate solutions can be added to the tank either directly or by a dosing pump
    Creates highly efficient calcium supplementation to the aquarium while still maintaining the ionic balance
    Contains all 70 trace elements found in natural sea water
    No unnatural by-products
    Without phosphates and other pollutants
    Refill package available with three powdered salt mixtures A, B and C that get separately dissolved in water
    The solubility of these elements is insured by the use of pharmaceutical grade salts of the highest purity

    How to use:

    Original Balling Liquid Set consists of three salt solutions A, B and C according to the well-known Balling method. The three part method adds calcium chloride dihydrate (part A) and sodium bicarbonate (part B), while the addition of sodium chloride-free sea salt (part C) maintains the crucial ionic balance in the aquarium water. This balanced calcium dosage creates the best conditions for good growth of corals and coralline algae and avoids the inevitable decrease of important elements seen in two part methods.

    Separately add equal amounts of all three solutions to the tank water daily.

    First measure the carbonate hardness and the calcium content of the water. Calculate the total system water volume, taking care to take into account the volume of live rock, external filters and sump tanks present. The addition of 1 fl. oz. / 28 ml of each solution will raise the calcium level of 10 US-Gal. / 35 l by approximately 15 ppm. Maximum recommended dose: 2 fl. oz. / 60 ml per 10 US-gal. / 35 l of aquarium water per day.

    Quantity declaration:
    1 liter/0.26 US Gal. Original Balling Liquid A, B and Ccontain 20,000 mg of calcium and 2800 °dH (= 52 g/1,8 ounces calcium carbonate).

    Natural seawater has a calcium level of approximately 410 mg/l and an alkalinity of 6,5 °dH. In aquariums which are high in alkalinity and low in calcium the calcium concentration should be adjusted at first by only adding solution A.

    The Refill package Original Balling Refill Set consists of three powdered salt mixtures A, B and C that get separately dissolved in water. Completely dissolve the contents of the bags as indicated below: Dissolve the bags A, B and C separately in 5,000 ml / 1.3 US Gal. of water each. After mixing, the resulting solutions should be added to the tank water separately as described above either directly or by a dosing pump.

    To refill the liquid solutions, Tropic Marin® offers also the individual components of the Balling method in 1 kg/2.2 lbs. packagings for an individual dosage of calcium and carbonates to compensate possible imbalances in the aquarium: Original Balling Components.

    For adjusted trace element supplementation we recommend the Tropic Marin® K+ Elements and AElements.

  • Tropic Marin Pro-Reef 25kg / 750l

    $135.00

    Application and dosage
    To achieve a salinity level of 32-35 ‰ (psu), dissolve 35 ml (approx. 37-40 g/1.3-1.4 oz.) of Tropic Marin® PRO-REEF per litre or approximately ½ cup of Tropic Marin® PRO-REEF per US gallon water. Dissolve almost all of the salt in a clean container already filled with the full volume of RO/DI water at a temperature of 73-77°F / 23-25°C while circulating/stirring the water. Do not concentrate the mixture by adding the full amount of salt to a smaller amount of water.
    Note: Always add the salt to the water, never the water to the salt.  Making a concentrated mixture will cause a calcium carbonate precipitate to form.
    When you have added ALMOST all of the salt and the mixture is fully dissolved and clear, start measuring the specific gravity with a hydrometer or similar instrument. Keep adding small amounts of salt until the specific gravity is the value you desire. The specific gravity of the sea salt solution should range from 1.025 to 1.027 (at 73-77°F / 23-25°C) and the pH-value should be in the range of 8.0 – 8.4. If all parameters are correct, the salt water is ready to use.
    After setting up a new aquarium it takes a few weeks of water being circulated and correct lighting conditions to achieve the biologically stable environment required for the care and breeding of delicate marine organisms.
    A weekly, partial water change, replacing 10 % of the total water volume with Tropic Marin® PRO-REEF, will help to maintain the water quality that your livestock needs for good health.

The specific gravity of the sea salt solution should range from 1.025 to 1.027 (at 73-77 °F / 23-25 °C) and the pH -value should be in the range of 8.0 – 8.4. If all parameters ​​are correct, the salt water is ready to use.

    After setting up a new aquarium it takes a few weeks of water being circulated and correct lighting conditions to achieve the biologically stable environment required for the care and breeding of delicate marine organisms.

    A weekly, partial water change, replacing 10 % of the total water volume with Tropic Marin® Sea Salt CLASSIC , will help to maintain the water quality that your livestock needs for good health.

    Parameters: approx. 9-10° KH, calcium approx. 380 ppm, magnesium approx. 1260 ppm

    Application: For fish only tanks and reef tanks with soft corals with no special requirements. To maintain the alkalinity in a 9-10 °dH range.

    Use the new dosing calculator for an easy determination of the required amount of salt for your aquarium.
