Aquaforest Component 1+ 2+ 3+
Everything you need for the Balling method
- A set of aquarium treatments based on the Balling method
- Includes three separate treatments
- Supports soft corals, clams, LPS coral and SPS coral
The chemical composition of Component 1+2+3+ is based on the method developed by H. Balling. The formula has been fine-tuned in our lab and enriched with trace elements that are fundamental for maintaining marine aquarium organisms. As a result, we have composed 3 fluids that are intended for dosing in equal amounts on regular basis. Component 1+2+3+ is designed to fulfil coral demands not only in terms of magnesium and calcium but also in terms of other elements which require careful and systematic dosing but are notoriously difficult to assess. In order to maintain an adequate amount of trace elements in aquarium water, both magnesium and calcium levels need to be within the recommended range (Ca 400-440 mg/L, Mg 1280-1350 mg/L)
A typical aquarium with an average number of hard corals requires approximately 50ml of each component per 100l (27 US gal) of water daily. The dosage needs to be adjusted according to the consumption of macro-nutrients and based on critical water parameters like calcium, magnesium and KH. If one or two parameters are still not balanced we recommend continuing with administering equal doses of each component and taking advantage of one of our additives (calcium, magnesium, KH buffer) to restore desired levels.
Component 1+ contains: Ca, Sr, Ba, Co, Mn, Cu, Fe, Zn, Ni and Cr. (50ml dissolved in 100 l/27 US gal raises Ca by 9 mg).
Component 2+ contains: NaHCO3, F, I. (50ml dissolved in 100 l/27 US gal raises KH by 1,3 dKH (Alk: 0,46 meg/l)).
Component 3+ contains: Mg, reef mineral salt, K and B. (50ml dissolved in 100 l/27 US gal raises Mg by 0,6 mg).
