What is this Trace Elements Lithium 150ml from Reef Zlements?

How do I use this Trace Elements Lithium 150ml?

It's important to first check your reef tank's Lithium levels prior to any dosing. In seawater, lithium levels typically fall between 0.1-0.2 mg/l. This is the recommended range that reefkeepers should try to maintain in their reef tanks.

To dose, add 1ml of lithium per 100L of saltwater. This will increase lithium levels by 15 µg/l. Make sure you test regularly to avoid overdosing; it's unknown exactly what too much lithium can do, but it's thought that it may boost the growth rates of certain algaes.

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