Calcium, Magnesium, Strontium and Carbonate are the basic foundation elements of Coral skeletons. All of these elements need to be available in balance proportions for coral health and growth. Reef Foundation A contains blended salts of Calcium and Strontium in the ratio required by corals and is part of the RedSea's complete reef care program.
For best results dose according to a measured uptake of Calcium and in conjunction with Reef Foundation B & C. 1ml of Reef Foundation A will raise the Ca level of 100 liters (25 gal) by 2ppm.
Optimal levels of the Foundation Elements: Unlike the natural reef environment, where there is an immense reservoir of the foundation elements, the reef aquarium is an artificial environment that is constantly affected by chemical changes and therefore the foundation elements must be monitored and replenished constantly. Furthermore, research has shown that the optimal levels of these elements should be maintained according to the variety and maturity of the specific coral populatio
