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

This Trace Elements Nickel 150ml is part of an extensive range of marine additives from industry experts Reef Zlements. It's an easy-to-dose supplement designed to improve coral growth and facilitate several important enzymatic processes within cell physiology and the formation of biofilms.

How do I use this Trace Elements Nickel 150ml?

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

Nickel is present in reefs across the world, typically at a concentration of 0.5-2 µg/l. A level of 2 µg/l is just the right amount for a reef tank. To dose, add 1ml of nickel per 100L of saltwater. This will increase nickel levels by 2 µg/l.

As is the case with other trace elements, it's important to test regularly to avoid overdosing. Too much nickel can cause your corals' tissues to flake. It can also increase their sensitivity to parasitic infestations.

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

Nickel is an essential trace element. It improves coral growth and enhances the colours of red and turquoise varieties. It has a particular growth-enhancing effect when ingested alongside various nitrogen compounds. Many corals also struggle to form basal discs if nickel content is too low.
