Triton Core7 Base Elements is an ionically balanced, super concentrated dosing system for reef aquariums of all kinds and have been specifically developed for the Triton Method of reefing. The Triton Method utilizes accurate ICP-OES testing to analyze what elements are in your tank and their concentrations along with specific filtration requirements like sumps and large refugiums. With ICP-OES testing Triton has been able to monitor what elements are consumed during coral growth and metabolic functions. Taking that data they have developed their ultra-pure line of Core7 Base Elements, that include all major and minor trace elements that your corals are going to need.
Core7 Base Elements comes in two different sizes, 1000mL bottles, which is the perfect size for nano tanks, or if you are just starting the Triton Method. Then they also have the 10L kit and is ideal for larger systems and comes in 10L jugs.
Dosing Core7 Base Elements
We highly suggest using Triton ICP-OES testing to establish a baseline, and for dosing recommendations. Prior to dosing your aquarium's alkalinity should be adjusted to 8 dKH. As a baseline starting dose, Triton recommends 2mL of each component every day per 26 gallons of system water volume. Alkalinity testing should be done on a daily basis for the first couple weeks so that consumption can be adjusted for accordingly. It is recommended not to exceed 2mL per 26 gallons of system water volume per dose, and if more solution is required then multiple doses per day can be administered.
- Core7 Base Elements uses a 1:1 ratio - for every 1mL of Part 1 you use, you should be using 1mL of Part 2, Part 3A, & Part 3B.
- Periodic testing with Triton Labs is highly encouraged to help fine tune your water chemistry.
- Dosing in smaller tanks can be done by diluting each bottle with RO/DI water but we do recommend using the standard Base Elements Additives since they are diluted and easier to distribute to smaller aquariums.
Use with Dosing Pumps
It is highly recommended to use an accurate dosing pump. Due to the super concentrated nature of the elements, it is required to dose into a high flow area of the sump ideally right before the refugium or display tank with a minimum of 5-minute intervals between solutions being dosed. It is also recommended to not dose more than 2mL per 26 gallons of water volume in a single dose.

Hope they can do better in future By DK on 1/21/2018DK wouldn't recommend this product to a friendMy first order arrived leaking,. and I did not received a core7 2 only two of the core7 3A.. So total total shipment unusable..
BRS did refund my money. but the worst part was I went to so much effort and cost to get everything set up to start the Triton Method and then could not complete.
BRS still does not have the core7 Base elements in stock. WHY.
Unavailable By randy on 1/17/2018randy wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI switched to triton from zeovit because i wanted to get away from blue bottles. I went all in but as others have said my 1st set of core 7 came leaking badly. So I've purchaced the triton sump and everything else needed but now i have no triton additives because of out of stock which is 99 percent of the time.How can you run triton without triton..just sayin not complainin.
Packaging sucks By Tim on 1/7/2018Tim wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI am able to keep parameters stable but the milk carton packaging and lack of availability are a problem. How can I continue to use if it is not available
Why this milk carton? By Vinny on 12/24/2017Vinny would recommend this product to a friendWhy does a company as smart as Triton put concentrated caustic solutions in cardboard milk containers? Not only can you not dose from these, but my last 2 shipments came with a slight leak. Both from the 3a containers. I would gladly pay a couple dollars more for the plastic bottles again.
Godd but cheap packaging By Brian on 12/17/2017Brian wouldn't recommend this product to a friendTriton Core 7 isca good product and system.....but....the cheap milk carton style conrainners they switched to will leak. I'm not sure why they switched containers, I wish they would switch back to their original plastic containers. I could buy a dosing container but I am not.
Paper Cartons LEAK! By Mark on 12/5/2017Mark would recommend this product to a friendI would rate the product a full 5 stars with ease. But they switched to paper cartons (similar to milk cartons) and they leak. BRS refunded for lost product, but really wish that they had stayed with the plastic bottles which were even good for making DIY dosing containers out of. Because of the change in the container I have to rate a four star total. 5 stars for the product, 2 stars for the new containers, and as always BRS gets 5 stars for excellent customer service,,, averages out to 4 stars.
Great method By Craig on 12/4/2017Craig would recommend this product to a friendI was doing Automatic water changes and was tired of making salt batches. Running this method my only real maintenance is changing out the skimmer cup, cleaning glass. Noticed nice polyp extension and growth out of my sps. Also if I didn't send my water sample in i wouldn't have known a clamp rusted off and fell into my sump. The test found high levels of Tin in my system and that was the cause.
Awesome system By Wolfman on 11/25/2017Wolfman would recommend this product to a friendOnly thing I don't like is the paper cartons they tend to leak

I have a 120 gal mixed reef tank currently dosing dyi 2 part about 160 ml per day. Alk 11 Ca 400, Mg 1300.
Tired of water changes!
The monthly cost for this and any system is going to be specifically relative to each individual tank. Unfortunately there really isn't a way to calculate a monthly cost because each tank and their consumption is different. :-)
Thanks for the question!
