CaribSea A.R.M. Aragonite Reactor Media 50 lb (Fine) Information




CaribSea A.R.M. Calcium Reactor Media—A complete reactor media containing not only calcium and carbonate, but essential trace elements as well. In fact CaribSea A.R.M. Calcium Reactor Media has nearly 50 times the strontium of other brands (7,390 ppm). CaribSea A.R.M. Calcium Reactor Media is processed for immediate use, no rinsing required, and has double the surface area of regular aragonite. Precision grading (2-3mm) allows for maximum carbon dioxide penetration, and the exclusion of gastrpod shells insures the lowest phosphate and silica (about 1/2 that of other brands) content. This grading also carries in the heighest concentration of Halimeda incrassata, an aragonite so pure it has been used as a laboratory standard. A.R.M. has the highest solubility of any reactor media available (metastable at 8.2) so CO2 consumption is much lower. CaribSea A.R.M. Calcium Reactor Media, its what your corals are made of. Bulk 50-pound bag.

Comments: This stuff is the best by far for magnesium addition via a calcium reactor. The other media's I've tried have always led to me eventually having to monitor and adjust my magnesium, now I am pretty confident using this media it's a non existent problem. Never have any p04 issues and the media melts at a higher pH so less swing for the Dt.

Comments: I love it. I bought the coarse media. There is no way it will be picked-up in my Calcium reactor pump again. When I took my Korralin calcium reactor apart, there was media in my Eheim pump intake from over the past year. This will eliminate that problem from reoccuring. I strongly recommend this media size in reactors.

Comments: This media is by far the best I've used; does not turn to mush like others I've used. To be clear I use ONLY the course media not the original.

Comments: This is the first course media I've went with and I love it! I use it with a pH controller and have a mid point of 6.5 with it dropping to around 6.45 and the rate of usage is amazing. I'd recommed this to all of my friends if they had SW tanks. ;)
