Tropic Marin Bio-Calcium 64oz Information




Enables the addition of biologically ideal calcium to the reef aquarium:

All calcareous animals, especially corals need calcium and carbonates to grow and flourish. However the growth rate of corals depends mostly on the zooxanthellae (algae) that live symbiotically within them. These algae present the coral with precious carbohydrates of their own metabolism. As they photosynthesize, they use carbon dioxide from the water, which enables the coral to precipitate calcium carbonate in its skeleton. Only when calcium and carbon dioxide are available together can this symbiotic relationship work. Tropic Marin Bio-Calcium is the ideal source of both calcium carbonate for the corals and carbon dioxide for the zooxanthellae.

Many calcium supplements add undesirable by-products to the water, or like Kalkwasser, influence pH. When Tropic Marin Bio-Calcium is dissolved in the aquarium, all 70 trace elements are added and no unnatural by-products are formed. Tropic Marin Bio-Calcium will not alter the pH level if used in accordance with the instructions.

Natural sea water contains on average 400-410 ppm of calcium and is typically saturated at this level. It is important not to exceed 450 ppm, as super saturation can result in the calcium surplus precipitating out of the solution, taking desirable trace elements with it. We recommend the use of a Tropic Marin calcium test kit and Tropic Marin Bio-Calcium to ensure these proper calcium levels.

Tropic Marin
Tropic Marin: A strong foundation in science and hobby: The successful methods and techniques of today`s marine aquarists are the result of a close collaboration between serious hobbyists, scientists and specialists at public aquariums. Tropic Marin came about in exactly the same way over 30 years ago! This close cooperation resulted in one of the first complete one-part synthetic marine salt mixtures that provided the optimum natural environment for the professional as well as the private aquarist.

Comments: If you are new to the hobby, this is the product for you. Instead of messing with a lot of confusing additives and calcium, Tropic Marine is the one stop for you. This saves me a great deal of time. I have been using it for 4 years now. Love it!

Comments: This stuff is like 'one stop shopping' as far as calium and other trace elements are concerned. I do regular water changes, keep an eye on my calcium, Magnesium and PH, and add this stuff as needed. I takes a lot of the guess work out of the issue of water quality. Highly recommended.

Best Ca cAdditive on Market

Comments: I have tried many Ca additives in the past 4 years and this is certainly the best. It even beats my Ca reactor that works on & off and cost hundreds more. I use this in my main display tank filled w/softies and some acros. However, it has been a lifesaver in my acro frag tank where my stoneys have thrived since adding it. I highly recommend it over any other additive on the market.
