CaribSea A.R.M. Aragonite Reactor Media Information




A complete reactor media containing not only calcium and carbonate, but essential trace elements as well. In fact A.R.M. has nearly 50 times the strontium of other brands (7,390 ppm) A.R.M. 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 ensures the lowest phosphate (less than 1/10 of 1 ppm) and silica (about 1/2 that of other brands) content. This grading also carries in the highest 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. A.R.M., its what yoru corals are made of. 8 lb.

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. ;)

Comments: What you wish for! The concentration of Calcium is great! I filled my reactor waited two days and tested. Calcium coming out of the reactor is above 500ppm. Needless to say I now have to reduce the amount of media used in the reactor and dial the dosage to a lower setting . :) What a great problem to have.
