A large number of marine organisms, such as corals and coralline calcifying algae, use calcium and carbonates to synthesize their rigid structures. These algae also have major magnesium requirements, an element that inhibits the precipitation of calcium in the form of insoluble calcium carbonate. Carbonate and hydrogen carbonate ions are responsible for the biggest part of the global alkalinity. Their buffer capacity also helps to reduce pH variations, which are harmful for aquariums.
The consumption of these elements therefore needs to be compensated for regularly. This is why Hydor Prodibio CalciReef Plus provides calcium and magnesium. It also progressively releases, under the action of BioDigest's bacteria, hydrogen carbonate ions from the biotransformation of the acetate in the calcium hydrogel. This gradually regenerates part of your aquarium's lost alkalinity.
Each ampoule of Hydor Prodibio CalciReef Plus contains 1,000 mg of calcium, 50 mg of magnesium, and 915 mg of progressively-released hydrogen carbonate (which equals 15 meq/L, or 750 ppm CaCO3, or 42 d°KH). The combination of these two products generates an ionic balance close to that of natural sea water, but we still recommend that you regularly change the water in your aquarium. Hydor Prodibio CalciReef Plus is gluconate free.
Ingredients:Each vial contains 1,000 mg of calcium, 50 mg of magnesium, and 915 mg of progressively-released hydrogen carbonate (which equals 15 meq/L, or 750 ppm CaCO3, or 42 d°KH).
