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

This Trace Elements Manganese 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 many important metabolic processes in your reef tank's inhabitants.

How do I use this Trace Elements Manganese 150ml?

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

In seawater, manganese concentrations typically fall between 1-2 µg/l. This is the recommended range that reefkeepers should aim for in their reef tanks.

To dose, add 1ml of manganese per 100L of saltwater. This will increase manganese levels by 2 µg/l. Manganese can be removed from your aquarium very quickly, so dose regularly to keep your levels within an appropriate range.

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

Manganese is an important component of many enzymes involved in several essential metabolic processes. A lot of the complicated, biological activities that take place inside your reef tank, and the bodies of its inhabitants, couldn't happen without manganese.

Your corals and their symbionts need manganese to photosynthesise. Without it, they'll struggle to grow and flourish. If your manganese levels are too low, then you may notice your corals grow pale and start to retract their polyps. Remedy this with a dose of manganese.
