The cool part of reefing. Calcium, alkalinity & growing corals in the aquarium - A beginner's guide
As corals grow inside your reef tank, they will synthesize various elements from the seawater in order to grow and build a skeleton. You need to replenish these elements to maintain suitable water chemistry and continue providing what the corals need to survive. Calcium and Alkalinity are the two most important parameters to monitor and supplement because these elements are consumed by corals in the greatest amount and at the fastest rate.
In episode #19 Ryan presents an easy, effective and economical method for major element supplementation using the highly popular Bulk Reef Supply 2-Part Pharma Calcium and Alkalinity supplements.
