- 250mL Reef Foundation Package (Ca/Alk/Mag) - Red Sea
Dosing trace elements cannot get any easier than the Reef Foundation System. Red Sea uses a very easy to follow, systematic approach to maintaining what your corals need to grow.
250mL Reef Foundation A (Ca,Sr)
250mL Reef Foundation B (Alk)
250mL Reef Foundation C (Mg)
Red Sea's Reef Foundation system has been designed to help promote coral growth and coloration while maintaining the health of the coral.
When corals grow, amounts of calcium, alkalinity, and magnesium will be consumed by the coral to create its calcium carbonate structure. With just a couple small corals the amount of elements that will be consumed can be replenished by water changes, but after corals start growing, or you add more the need to supplement and replenish the elements being consumed will arise. Calcium, alkalinity and magnesium will be consumed the quickest and the Red Sea Reef Foundation System uses high quality components letting you replenish the basic trace elements that are being consumed.
Reef Foundation A: 1 mL will raise the Calcium level of 25 gallons by 2 ppm.
Reef Foundation B: 1 mL will raise the alkalinity of 25 gallons by 0.036 meq/l (0.1dKH).
Reef Foundation C: 1 mL will raise the Magnesium level of 25 gallons by 1 ppm.
5 stars - using for 3 years now By Michael on 4/6/2019Michael would recommend this product to a friendI have used Red Sea foundation elements on my 24g tank since 2017, and it has been great! Very easy to get the right dose every time, and the concentration is high enough to only need a few ml daily.

Convenient By Jonathan on 7/17/2018Jonathan would recommend this product to a friendIt's convenient for me because I have a 30 gallon reef and it's pre-mixed and easy to use.
Essential additives By Cpuuser123 on 3/11/2018Cpuuser123 would recommend this product to a friendI have a 75 gal display tank. My readings were very low. I have not set up a dosing station yet, but in the meantime I am using this kit. It took a lot of product to get the readings right but after the system leveled out, it hasn't been so bad. Corals are growing much faster and are much healthier now.

Works as Advertised By Charles on 3/9/2017Charles would recommend this product to a friendI have a small 24g AIO aquarium and I didn't want to deal with mixing two part etc. I had gone for 5 years with only monthly water changes of 25% and some of my elements were way off as my LPS has grown huge in the tank. One note: I would only use this on 50g or smaller, ideally 30g or smaller. Especially if you need to raise magnesium a lot like i did. It took almost a whole bottle of mag over a month to get the magnesium up from 1060 (which is admittedly super low). I dose once a week in an LPS and softie tank and everything is very happy. Red Sea also sells a three in one test kit for all of these elements. I bought both and the test kit is nice and easy to use. It also gets the same readings as my Salifert test kits
For how long you can have this product after buying ?
This item has no expiration date. Have a great day!
Are these a liquid or powder?
Is it normal for the calcium bottle to sound like it has gravel shaking around in it?
Have a great day!
