Two Little Fishies

TwoLittleFishies C-Balance 1 gal. Concentrate (Half filled 2 gal. container) A two-part liquid supplement designed to make replenishment of calcium and buffering capacity easy. C-Balance replenishes calcium and carbonate alkalinity with the correct ratio of both major and minor ions, including magnesium and strontium. Maintaining this balance of ions insures the optimal conditions for growth in stony corals and coralline algae. C-Balance also contains natural seawater concentrations of trace elements, but since these are depelted by filtration methods and growth of marinelife, it is important to continuously replenish trace elements with a complete additive like CombiSan. C-Balance replenishes salts lost via protein sikimming, and in this way also helps to promote very stable ratios and concentrations of ions. C-Balance maintains the calcium level, so it can be used as an alternative to kalkwasser or as a supplement to it.

Specifications

We recommend the use of kalkwasser in addition because of its stroner ability to precipitate phosphate. C-balance is made from the purest grade of chemicals and is the only calcium and alkalinity replenishing system that includes major, minor and trace elements in the correct ionic ratios to produce an ionic residual with the composition of natural seawater. It is the complete calcium solution. Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption. For aquarium use only. Not for use with fish raised for human consumption. Recommended starting dosate: 5mL per 20 Gallons (75L) per day.

Love!

I have been using C-Balance in my tank for many, many years and love it. I do a daily dose and have so much Coralline algae that I have to regularly scrape it off the glass.

easy and awesome!

I've used many calcium additives and buffers and it's been hard to maintain calcium levels over 390. I've been using this for a week now and I'm very impressed. Calcium maintains between 423 and 440. If I up the dosage a bit, obviously I'll have higher levels. My coral have reacted much better to this two part than any other supplements I've tried. Highly recommend this product! Parameters are balanced

Great product!

Ive been using this product for 14 years now and nothing but positive results. It contains elements that other products dont, therefore its more beneficial and cost effective due to not having to purchase other products. Price is fair. I buy the 1 gallon concentrate bottles. Very easy to mix and works great for dosing pumps.

First choice

We've used C-balance on our reefs for at least 10 years. We use a 2-part timed pump so it goes in twice a day. It does an great job of keeping levels of Ca, Mg, dKh, etc. under control. Awesome growth of stony corals and softies, alike. We have very stable tanks with long-lived inhabitants (10 yrs +). We test water every few weeks to be sure the input matches the needs of the corals, and change the dosing schedule accordingly. I would definitely recommend C-balance to others - especially newcomers to the hobby.

Great deal

If you use C Balance this is a great deal. In my opinion, the product description is vague. By diluting with RO water per instructions you get two gallons of C Balance at a substantial cost savings.
