What is this Trace Elements Cobalt 150ml from Reef Zlements

This Trace Elements Cobalt 150ml is part of an extensive range of marine additives from industry experts Reef Zlements. It's an easy-to-dose supplement designed to facilitate important biological processes in marine animals, such as DNA replication.

How do I use this Trace Elements Cobalt 150ml?

It's important to first check your reef tank's cobalt levels prior to any dosing. This is best done with a professional ICP test. These tests will not only tell you whether your cobalt levels need adjusting, but your levels of other trace elements too.

In nature, cobalt concentrations vary, from 0.002 µg/L in the north central Pacific Ocean to 0.39 µg/L in the Indian Ocean. The optimal level of cobalt in a marine aquarium is between 0.1-1.6 µg/L, depending on its inhabitants.

To dose, add 1ml of cobalt per 100L of saltwater. This will increase cobalt levels by 2 µg/L. It's recommended you test regularly while dosing cobalt. This will ensure your levels stay within their optimum range and don't start to negatively affect your fish, corals, and other invertebrates.

What is cobalt and why is it important for my reef tank?

Cobalt is an integral part of vitamin B12 and an important factor in many DNA and cell processes. It's also an essential nutrient for macroalgae. By maintaining cobalt levels inside your reef tank, you'll ensure the health and stunning colouration of your animals.
