    Triton method cost - Time to add up how much it costs to run a triton method reef tank - BRStv Reef FAQs

    One of the first questions we get when discussing the Triton Method with our customers is “How much does it cost?”. We came up with some clear figures to share with you in order to help you make the right choice for your tank and budget. To justify paying a premium for something, it needs to deliver results and deliver those results better than the rest. The Triton Core 7 is one of the only calcium, alkalinity and trace element solutions designed for use with a refugium or algae scrubber and the resulting uptake of elements and nutrients. When looking at total costs of running the Triton Method, outside of the Core 7 base elements, you also need to consider the individual element additives and ICP test kits. Then look at how all of this balances out with the reduction in salt mix costs as a result of less frequent water changes. Triton Method Core7 Base Elements A few weeks ago we looked at the cost of various two part solutions.

    Triton Method Reef Tanks - Eliminating water changes in your saltwater aquarium - BRStv Reef FAQs

    Keeping a healthy reef tank with regular water changes creates a significant demand for your personal time. Add in water testing, dosing and filter maintenance and your reef tank can quickly turn into a dreaded chore. The facts are, most aquariums depend on water changes to survive and nobody likes hauling around heavy buckets of water to perform them. In fact, outside of failing equipment, the number one cause of tank failure is the lack of necessary routine maintenance because of the burden and demand for time. The Triton Method of reefkeeping makes it possible reduce your tanks reliance on water changes and, therefore, the demand on your personal time. We can confidently say this is possible because of what we learned through the BRS160 video series in which we used the Triton Method to drastically reduce the tanks dependance on water changes. How The Triton Method works Water changes are necessary to prevent the toxic build

  4. Spotlight on Triton Core7 Reef Supplements for Other Methods - BRStv

    Spotlight on Triton Core7 Reef Supplements for Other Methods - BRStv

    In this BRStv Spotlight, Randy explains what the Core7 Reef Supplements are and how to implement them on your tank! If you aren't using the full Triton Method for your reef tank, Triton has created the Core7 Reef Supplements for Other Methods so that you can still get the benefit of concentrated major, minor and trace elements for your tank! Can't use the full Triton Method but still want to dose their 4-part solution of major, minor and trace elements? Then Reef Supplements for Other Methods may be for you! The major difference between the Triton Method and the Triton 4-part Reef Supplements, is that the latter does not include key elements for purposefully growing algae or using algae as a primary filter in your tank. This formula allows you to use the balanced major, minor and trace elements without a refugium as a primary filter. Stay tuned as we continue to provide you with Spotlights on your favorite reef gear and strive to go beyond the bullet points on the packaging

    Triton’s Founder Ehsan Dashti: Modern Practical Reef Keeping | MACNA Speakers 2017

    A lot has changed since the pioneering days of reef-keeping in the 1980s and 90s. Today the relentless growth of the hobbyist market drives our industry to develop the many new technologies and techniques that advance reef husbandry. While exciting, the pace and scale of this explosion in knowledge makes it difficult to understand and assess what best practice 21st Century reef-keeping actually means. Using insights culled from the world’s largest aquarium-testing database Ehsan Dashti will present a set of guidelines for the modern scientific reefkeeper. Practical examples will demonstrate: (1) how to be a better, science based aquarist, (2) how to recognize misleading marketing hype and save money, and, (3) how to be a better informed and more responsible aquarist. Ehsan is the founder and owner of TRITON Applied Reef Bioscience, founded in 2008 in Düsseldorf Germany and was the first company using cutting edge technology to analyze artificial and natural seawater for aquarium professionals an

    Update 4: Converting the BRS160 to the Triton Method | 52 Weeks Of Reefing #BRS160

    It has been over two years since we started the BRS160 and we have been using the ZEOvit method without fail. Everyday dosing blue bottles and pumping the media has undoubtedly produced high growth and even better coloration, but this being BRStv we cannot just ride one system from here on out! We honestly have no reason to change from the ZEOvit system, but we have wanted to try our hand at the Triton Method of Reefing, with a refugium being the primary source of nutrient control. With all the information and data we have on how effective a refugium is with proper lighting and flow, we know this system should not fail. We are also very excited not to have to do any more water changes too! The Triton Method is based on accurate ICP-OES testing that analyzes what elements are in your water and try to match the levels in natural seawater. The best part of Tritons ICP testing is if you have any issues, they tell you how to fix it! Changing the BRS160 over from ZEOvit to Triton did take

    Getting critical about water chemistry with the Triton Method By Ehsan Daskti | MACNA 2014

    This talk will focus on the exploration of chemistry and biochemistry of reef and aquarium ecosystems, their links and differences and their applicability to reef aquariums. The presentation will cover the high precision testing of seawater with a high throughput, Trace Elements in the Aquarium and their relevance, also compared to natural seawater of Flores Sea and Komodo. The conclusion will reflect on the changes to the point of view to reef keeping, regarding old and new techniques to mimic the natural habitat of corals.
