Note: Low potassium levels have following characteristics:
- Montipora stop growing, colors are dull to grey
- Poccilopora and Stylopora with low potassium level look like they have been out of the water in the air, polyps are inside and color is light without depth and saturation
- Blue Acropora are also washed-out
- Seriatopora can show complete tissue necrosis within a few days
- Turbinaria Reniformis stops growing.
Dosing: 1 mL/25 gallons per day
Warning: Do not increase dosage given on the label. Product is highly concentrated. We recommend to check potassium level regularly like Ca or Mg.
K-Balance Strong is especially useful to increase the potassium level in big tanks.
great for maintaining potassium By reefer99 on 5/16/2015reefer99 would recommend this product to a friendAn excellent product for maintaining potassium. I add it a couple times a week and my potassium levels stay right where I want. Note: if you need to raise your potassium more than 20ppm use k-balance strong
Works as Advertised By David on 11/24/2014David would recommend this product to a friendthis is a low concentration potassium additive suitable for daily or regular dosing. It isn't very strong so it would be quite a waste to try to increase your pitassium concentration significantly using it. As a way to help maintain the level however, it works great.
Great for boosting colors By Lenny on 7/1/2014Lenny would recommend this product to a friendI noticed my acros were looking dull and my reds had a pale pink coloration. I sent my water for testing and found that calcium and most other parameters were right on but my potassium level was 210. I started dosing potassium with K Balance and almost overnight I noticed not only more red coloration but my polyp extension has never been so amazing. I highly recommend this product to any reef junkie, especially if trying to raise finicky acropora and montiora corals.
