Among the larger elements that coral take up, micro elements are also needed for some of their biological functions. Component Strong: A, B, C and K supplies these micro elements at proper levels when used simultaneously with Aquaforest Calcium, Magnesium, KH Buffer and Reef Mineral Salt.

This Microelement Kit contains:
  • 75 ml Component A
  • 75 ml Component B
  • 75 ml Component C
  • 75 ml Component K

Component Overview:

Component A contains a balanced mix concentrate of strontium and barium. Strontium supports hard corals in development of skeletal tissue and significantly improves calcium absorption and growth of soft corals, as well as filter feeders.

  • 5 ml of Component A should be added to 1 l of Calcium solution. Strontium level in reef aquarium should be around 5 to 15 ppm.

Component B contains concentrated heavy metals which are necessary for correct biological processes, also helping accelerate growth and coloration in coral and filter feeders. Complementing water with elements naturally existing in sea water.

  • 5 ml of Component B should be added to 1 l of Calcium solution.

Component C contains concentrated iodine and fluorine. Iodine intensifies dark blue and purple coloration of hard corals and its proper level in sea water supports shrimp molting. Fluorine takes part in calcification process and supports development of the skeletal tissue.

  • 5 ml of Component C should be added to 1 l of KH Buffer solution. Recommended levels of both elements in the reef aquarium are: iodine approx. 0.06 ppm and fluorine approx. 13 ppm.

Component K contains concentrated potassium. Potassium plays an important role in metabolic processes of corals, takes part in transportation of nutrients and boosts red and pink coloration of SPS corals.

  • 5 ml of Component K should be added to 1 l of Reef Mineral Salt + Magnesium. Recommended potassium level in reef aquarium is 360-380 mg/l (ppm).


Note: Due to the fact, that micro elements in reef aquariums are consumed in a certain proportion with macro elements, concentrations of Components Strong were created basing on other parameters. Only dosage of the entire Aquaforest range of products ensures effectiveness and guarantees the maintenance of chemical balance in the aquarium. The amount of dosed micro elements depends on aquarium`s individual demand for magnesium and calcium. If you use the Probiotic method or other methods that incorporate zeolite media, it is necessary to add back the elements that the zeolites absorb to minimize starvation of the corals.
