Designed to restore & maintain calcium to levels found in natural seawater that supports healthy coral growth.

Calcium & carbonates are essential to all coral growth. If either becomes deficient, coral growth will cease, followed by a rapid decline in coral health.

Reef Advantage Calcium is a non-caustic (ph 8.3-8.6) optimized blend of ionic calcium. It also includes magnesium & strontium in amounts proportionate to typical utilization ratios (100:5:0.1, Ca:Mg:Sr).This allows one to maintain these two important elements while maintaining calcium. Unlike limewater (Kalkwasser), it does not have a caustic pH and will not deplete magnesium. Used as directed, it will not deplete alkalinity.

To prevent coral problems, you must provide Reef Advantage Calcium™ and carbonates in Reef Builder (below) or Reef Carbonate (below).

    DIRECTIONS:
  • BEGINNER: Use 1 level teaspoon per 150 L (40 gallons*) twice a week. Dissolve in at least one cup of freshwater. Check calcium every 2 weeks and adjust dose or frequency accordingly.
  • ADVANCED: Check calcium level, then follow dosing regimen above until calcium is adjusted to 380–420 mg/L. Each dose will raise calcium by about 12 mg/L. Size or frequency of dose can be adjusted, but do not exceed 25 mg/L per day. Thereafter, use as required to maintain calcium.
  • EXPERT: After determining the calcium consumption rate, set up a continuous drip system. Use the following formula to determine how much to add to your top-off water: t=0.002vc (t=teaspoons to add to top off water, v=volume of tank in gallons, c=amount to raise calcium in mg/L). For example, if you want to raise calcium by 25 mg/L in a 50 gallon* tank, then you would add 0.002x50x25=2.5 teaspoons into the top-off water.
  • HINTS: If used with Reef Calcium™, it is not necessary to exceed 380 mg/L total calcium.

DO NOT OVERDOSE: Excess calcium may enhance the loss of carbonate alkalinity. Do not directly mix with any

carbonate supplement. Best if calcium & carbonate additives are added on alternate days or at least 30 minutes apart.
