What is Seachem Reef Advantage Strontium?

Reef Advantage Strontium restores and maintains strontium to levels found in natural sea water. Strontium is utilised by corals in the same manner as calcium and holds a similar importance in maintaining a vigorous level of growth.

It is most useful in densely populated aquariums requiring a continuous supply of strontium. Reef Advantage Strontium is a highly concentrated (30,000 ppm), ionically balanced strontium supplement.

Unlike other strontium chloride products, Reef Advantage Strontium™ is formulated so that it can be added directly to the aquarium. Competing products require one to mix a separate solution before adding it to the system.

What is strontium and why is it important for a reef tank?

Strontium is an essential element that occurs in natural seawater at a concentration of about 8 to 10 mg/L. It is chemically very similar to calcium, and many organisms incorporate it in their skeletons along with calcium. Its addition to reef aquariums aids the growth of corals, coralline algae and other organisms that lay down a calcareous skeleton or shell, including tridacnid clams.

How do you use Seachem Reef Advantage Strontium?

Use 6g (1 level teaspoon) per 150L (40 gallons) twice a week. May be added directly to aquarium. For precise dosing, use the Seachem Digital Spoon Scale. Check strontium level, then follow the dosing regimen until strontium is adjusted to 8–12 mg/L. Each 6g/150L will raise strontium by about 2 mg/L. Amount or frequency can be adjusted as needed. Thereafter, use as required to maintain strontium.
