Kent Marine

Description:
Concentrated Liquid Calcium provides bio-available calcium for lush growth of purple, pink and green calcareous algaes, snails, hard tube worms and clams. Corals will open more and stay attached to their skeletons better, with regular use. Phosphate & nitrate free! Contains no gluconates, EDTA, or other organics to raise DOC levels, as many competing products do. Concentrated Liquid Calcium alone can provide all the calcium your reef will need, but for maximum results, use Kent Kalkwasser Mix first, then raise calcium level with this product. Strontium addition via use of Kent Marine Strontium & Molybdenum Supplement is absolutely necessary. Use of Coral Vite, and Essential Elements are beneficial, as well.

Directions:
Add ΒΌ to 1 teaspoon (1/4 to 1 capful or 1.25 to 5 ml) per 50 gallons (190 l) of tank capacity each day, based on animal load. Since animals use calcium, and gallons do not, regular testing of calcium level by a good calcium test kit (HachTM brand is recommended) is advised. Adjust amount of addition of the product to achieve a calcium level of about 400 mg/l. A higher level may result in rapid calcium compound precipitation and deposits which can possibly be destructive to pumps and other sensitive system equipment. It is recommended that you regularly check impellers and other delicate equipment for calcium deposits if you run higher (above 400 mg/l) system calcium levels! For best results adjust system KH to 8 to 10 dKH with Superbuffer-dKH or Marine Aquarium pH Buffer.

Contents:
Deionized water, calcium chloride.

Precautions:
Keep out of reach of children! Product gets very hot when dissolved in water. Wear rubber gloves when handling. Not for human consumption.

I like Kent Products

I've been using this product for several years now and really like the ease of use, the quality of the product, and the way it works in my tank.

Not effective

I've dosed this several days in a row with no measurable increase in calcium. Not sure what's supposed to be in this stuff. The directions indicate the desired level of calcium for a reef tank but it doesn't detail how much each dose should increase calcium levels per gallon. That makes it hard to dose. I've doubled and tripled the dose and got no increase in calcium. Don't think it works at all!

Does what it's supposed to do

I dose Kent liquid calcium in conjunction with Kent's kalkwasser and super buffer dkh daily to maintain levels in my aquarium. Pretty happy with the whole Kent line including magnesium and strontium/molybdenum.

Liquid Calcium

I use liquid calcium in place of calcium reactor, and it does just the same. I recommend using Liquid Calcium with Pro Buffer dKH and Kalkwrasser as it keeps the pH, KH, and CA levels at a constant. The mixture of the three has exploded growth throughout my tank. But remember do not over dose, test often!!

Great

Everything that I have read says I need Calcium, then every pet store I went to sales Kent. I'm a beginner and want the best I can afford for my aquarium, which isn't very much just getting started. I really look into things before I buy them and every review about Kent was good. The price isn't bad at all. Buying online saves alot of money.
