Seachem Reef Carbonate is a blend of carbonate and bicarbonate which restores and maintains the alkalinity levels of your reef tank perfectly. Reef Carbonate is a concentrated (4,000 meq/L) blend of carbonate and bicarbonate. Both calcium and carbonates are essential to coral growth and without them the health of your corals will suffer. The corals will stop growing and a decline in their health will follow. Reef Carbonate will not lower calcium, magnesium, or strontium levels, so you can be confident of the best results. Reef alkalinity should be maintained at 3-5 meq/L (8-14 dKH). Alkalinity should not be allowed to fall below 2 meq/L. The blend of salts results in Reef Carbonate make for a pK of roughly 9.0 in saltwater.
- Blend of carbonate and bicarbonate
- Maintains alkalinity levels
- Will not lower calcium, magnesium, or strontium levels
Use 1 capful (5 mL) per 80 L twice a week. Each dose will raise alkalinity by about 0.25 meq/L.
