The ATI Nutrition is an advanced nutrient management system that simplifies control, naturally, with nitrogen, phosphorus and carbon: Nutrition N, Nutrition P, and Nutrition C. Algae, cyano, and diatoms, will be held off, and there will be no need for extra equipment like media reactors, ceramic blocks, or bio-pellets when using ATI Nutrition.
In home aquaria, nitrate and phosphate can get out of balance where either one is extremely higher than the other, resulting in slow growth, poor coloration, and even coral dying. Supplementing either ATI Nutrition N or P will help counteract this imbalance with the necessary dosing of the nutrients that reefs crave, while Nutrition C reduces any excess levels, promoting the growth of bacteria that naturally consumes the excess.
Stone corals need calcium, carbonate, magnesium, strontium and barium for development of their skeletal structures, however, for biomass construction, trace elements, organic compounds, and nutrients of carbon (C), nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) are needed. ATI Nutrition P enriches the supply of Essentials Pro by providing essential, organic compounds and nutrients.
ATI Nutrition C-N-P complements the use of Essentials Pro, ideally, with organic compounds and nutrients. It is also compatible with other traditonal 2-part dosing systems, individual supplements, or regimens.
