This time on BRStv Investigates we're taking on the question, "Will elevated levels of alkalinity, calcium and magnesium increase coral growth rates in a reef tank?" Follow along with us in this episode as Ryan shares our approach to finding the answer as well as some early speculations of what we might expect! Today on BRStv, we have a brand new episode of our series, BRStv Investigates. In this series, we explore popular reefing theories, products, methods, and what the manuals are missing, with a focus on putting them to the test! This week we aim to determine what effect elevated levels of major elements will have on coral growth by controlling two sets of tank's parameters and monitoring closely. For this experiment we'll have two sets of tanks, with the first set maintaining parameters at 430ppm Calcium / 1280ppm Magnesium /8dKH. The second set of tanks will maintain elevated levels at 465ppm Calcium / 1390ppm Magnesium / 12dKH.
