Kent Marine

Description:
Strontium & Molybdenum Supplement provides bio-available strontium for lush growth of purple, pink and green calcareous algaes, snails, hard tube worms and clams. Magnesium is added to make up for deficiencies in some of the newer brands of sea salt mixes. Potassium & molybdenum are added to assist the symbiotic algae growing in coral and other invertebrates tissues. 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. For best results, Use Kent Kalkwasser Mix, or Concentrated Liquid Calcium first.

Directions:
Add one teaspoon (capful or 5 ml) per 50 gallons (190 l) of tank capacity. Adding more than the recommended amount of Strontium & Molybdenum Supplement is generally very safe and can be beneficial in many cases, particularly when you have heavy animal loads. If you decide to increase the dosage, just read the cautions below, and cut back should any adverse reactions be noticed.

Considerations for use:
Excessive usage may result in rapid strontium compound precipitation and deposits which can possibly be destructive to pumps and other sensitive system equipment and can also deplete system alkalinity (although this is unlikely). This can endanger a stable pH, and pH may fall. Caution is therefore advised, and proper buffering via regularly measuring alkalinity (carbonate hardness or KH), and adjusting with Kent Marine Superbuffer-dKH or Kent Marine Marine Aquarium pH Buffer is absolutely necessary. For best results adjust system KH to 10 dKH with Superbuffer-dKH or Marine Aquarium pH Buffer. Use Kent Kalkwasser Mix, Concentrated Liquid Calcium or TURBO CALCIUM to keep proper calcium levels. Use Kent Coral-Vite to add important trace minerals and vitamins for corals!

Contents:
Deionized Water, and strontium, magnesium, potassium and molybdenum salts.

Precautions:
First Aid: If in eyes, flush with water for 15 minutes. If ingested, drink water. Call a physician immediately! Keep out of reach of children!

NO CONCENTRATION DATA

Read ANY review of marine water quality and supplementation and they will tell you that its critical that whatever supplement you use you need to be able to measure its concentration in your tank and calculate whats required to add to maintain levels. Its impossible to do that when a concentration is not provided on the supplement, as is the case with this supplement. I even called the company and they said it was proprietary! However other companies (e.g. SEACHEM) do state concentration which enables accurate dosing, on a specific tank by tank basis. I would stay clear of ANY company/supplement that doesn't feel comfortable telling you whats in their supplement!

A needed ingredient

I have a saltwater aquarium and use a number of additives for my corals and macro alqae. When a free bottle of Strontium got used up, I quit adding it to my regret. Many of the corals became translucent and my red macro algae turned white. I started up with the Kent Marine Strontium & Molybdenum and quickly saw an improvement in both. Clearly this can be a necessary additive for the health of a tank. I've been very happy with this product (some brands only add the Strontium) and highly recommend it.

Essential supplement

I have a rather heavily stocked aquarium, and it's not feasible to make weekly water changes. I use this and other supplements to provide selected elements to the fish and invertebrates (snails, shrimps, hermit crabs mostly). Fish are happy and healthy, and the invertebrates grow/molt and otherwise seem to be doing well.

great

Everything that I have read says I need Strontium & Molybdenum for my aquarium, 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.

I have only been using it for a week so I don't know the full benefits yet. My son has been using it for a while and really thinks it helps with growth.

This is a great product for soft and hard corals. My corals love this additive and it doesn't produce any unwanted algae growth like a lot of additives do. I would highly recommend this product to anyone. It is easy to use with great results. The price was excellent and very fast shipping.
