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.

IT'S INSTOCK NOW By Chi on 3/5/2018Chi would recommend this product to a friendHurry before it's gone again, anyway great product and easy to implement, just dose them with a doser and forget about it.
If Only It was In Stock By Travis on 3/2/2018Travis wouldn't recommend this product to a friendWorked great for four months while i had it. Sadly the containers leaked and its never in stock. I was forced to move back over to 2 part in order keep my system alive.
Full Tritoner By urban reefer on 2/22/2018urban reefer would recommend this product to a friendBeen running full Triton method on a 26 gallon nano mixed reef for a full year now and absolutely love the stability of this system. Please go back to the old containers Triton.
Availability is key to success By Rick on 2/22/2018Rick would recommend this product to a friendTriton's only drawback is it avalibility and its a big one.
Great Product-Bad Distribution By Brian on 2/19/2018Brian would recommend this product to a friendI have seen improvements to my coral health since switching over. I would recommend establishing a decent size refugium BEFORE making the switch though. Due to the addition of algae boosting nutrients in the product I had a bad outbreak of hair algae in the first month. After everything settled down things look great. Very concerned about product availability. If I run out I will be forced to switch to a different system! Bummer.
Good prodcut Horrible company By Nairb on 2/14/2018Nairb wouldn't recommend this product to a friendproduct works well whenever it is in stock. The company however is a joke. I wish someone would take over this company who know a thing about customer service and how to keep their product stocked up.
Triton Method Works By Benson on 1/30/2018Benson would recommend this product to a friendThe Core7 has done well in my tank. The corals are looking excellent. With that said, the availability of the product is a major concern. Once they are available at the online stores will there be a mad dash by all to grab some?? I hope the stability in having product available is worked out soon.
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.

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!
