Calcium, magnesium, strontium and carbonate are the basic foundation elements of coral skeletons. All of these elements need to be available in balanced proportions for coral health and growth.

Red Sea’s Reef Foundation B is a complex of carbonate and other buffers present in seawater that maintain proper alkalinity and pH, and is part of Red Sea’s complete Reef Care program.

Liquid supplement: 1ml will raise the alkalinity of 100 liters (25gal) by 0.036 meq/l (0.1dKH)

Comments: The products do not list converting to gallons, and doing so yields different numbers of containers of A, B, and C. For instance you need multiple Calciums but only one 2.2 lb Alkalinity buffer. Also although you can't be accurate for every tank, a starting daily dose for different tank types and sizes would be nice. I'm going back to B Ionics. If I can return these confusing boxes I will.

Comments: I love the Red Sea line. Everything from the test kits to the supplements is very well thought out. I like that there is the convenience of liquid, as well as the concentrated powder for those with large or multiple tanks seeking a more economical option. The liquids have dosage charts on the back so you don't have to do so much math to dose your tank. Which is always a plus. The liquids are also a great concentration, high enough that you can dose an average size tank without needing buckets, and low enough that you can easily dose a nano without trouble. The Alkalinity will actually keep your pH up unlike some competing products that are mostly bicarbonate and do not support higher (8.3-8.4) alkalinity without additional chemical intervention.

Comments: I have a 29 Gal. BioCube with SPS coral. My corals were sucking the calcium/alkalinity right out of the water. Even after water changes the corals looked fine for a week or 2 but color seemed faded. I started using the Red Sea series and noticed a BIG difference after only a week! Especially after using the Foundation B. The colors became more vibrant and areas that were damaged healed VERY fast. Growth rate has increased and polyp extension is to the MAX! I have a birdsnest coral that literally grows before my eyes now! Highly recommended !

Comments: This is my second time purchasing this product. This time ordered 2 bottles instead of one. Overall good product. Now only usin the Red Sea line of additives and salt mix. Have noticed great coloration in both my corals and fish. But the growth rates of my frags have increased since using the product over the last 3-4 months. The reason not a perfect 5 of 5 stars is wish the product was a bit more concentrated and the fact that you must dose the product in small twice a day doses (if using included measuring cup) in order to keep a stable pH and to prevent water cloudiness. I will be adding these bottles to my new apex run dosing pumps to make them more effective this time around.

Comments: I've recently begun using the full Red Sea Pro Coral program and while its too early to tell, I'm generally happy with the results. After burning through a bottle of Foundation B (alkalinity) supplement in about 10 days I went ahead and ordered the powder supplement to mix up my own stock solution. The powder is crap. First, its very difficult to get it to properly dissolve and secondly the stock solution created is 1/3rd the concentration of their liquid product. The combination of these two problems has me looking for a different manufacturer of Alkalinity additive.
