Red Sea Reef Foundation Pro Ca/Alk/Mg Multi Test Kit Information

Red Sea`s Reef Foundation Kit includes high accuracy titration tests for the accurate measurement of the elements calcium, magnesium and alkalinity (KH) which are the basic foundation elements of coral skeletons. All of these elements need to be available in balanced proportions for sustainable successful coral health and growth.

This test kit enables accurate dosing of the Red Sea Reef Foundation Supplements, which are part of the complete Red Sea Reef Care Program.

Specifications
Element Accuracy Test Type No. of Tests
Ca (Calcium) 5 ppm Titration 75

Red Sea Reef Foundation Supplement Information

A successful coral reef aquarium depends on how well you maintain the water parameters which are the key to a stable coral environment. All of the elements found in natural seawater play a role in providing optimal water parameters, but some are more significant than others. These elements, the foundation of the reef environment, include the three major elements: Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg) and Carbonates (CO3). All three have a major effect on water chemistry (pH stability, Alkalinity, ionic strength) and on many of the coral’s biological processes (skeleton formation, ions exchange, photosynthesis).

The foundation elements complement each other in the formation of coral skeleton. If not balanced correctly one of the elements will quickly limit healthy coral growth.

Maintaining balanced levels of the Foundation Elements (Ca, KH & Mg) creates optimal water conditions for promoting strong and healthy coral growth. Reef Foundation A is a Calcium & Strontium complex for balanced formation of Coral Skeleton.

Reef Foundation A: Contains Calcium, Strontium, and Barium according to the ratios found in coral skeleton. Concentration: 1ml will raise the Ca level of 100 liters (25 gal) by 2ppm.

Reef Foundation B (Alk): A complex of carbonate and other buffers present in seawater that maintain proper alkalinity and pH. Concentration: 1ml will raise the alkalinity of 100 liters (25gal) by 0.36 meq/l (1dKH).

Reef Foundation C (Mg): A blend of Magnesium salts. Concentration: 1ml will raise the Mg level of 100 liters (25gal) by 1ppm.

Great test kit

This test kit was a surprise to me. Comes in a plastic container with color coded syringes. Test vials are held in place in the lid. and there is a holder for the vials that also holds the syringe as you add and swirl the test and watch for color change. Very nice and easy to use.
