Coral Elements•N vitamin and mineral
micronutrient complex replaces crucial minor and trace minerals lost to
carbon filtration, protein skimming and ozone and provides essential
vitamins for growth of live corals and other invertebrates. It contains
no heavy metals, phosphates, silicates, gluconates, or polygluconates.
Use in aquarium keeping.
Corals acquire vitamins and minerals directly
from the surrounding seawater, as well as from ingested food. Regular
addition of Coral Elements•N vitamin and mineral micronutrient complex
provides for availablity of these nutrients. Minerals influence the
coloration of all marine species including corals and clams and are
important in many of the chemical reactions that take place in living
tissues. In addition to Coral Elements•N, we recommend that you also
use Coral Exponential to provide needed amino acids for coral tissue
growth. The hobbyist should pay close attention to the alkalinity, or
KH of the system and closely monitor the calcium, magnesium and
strontium levels. Continuum recommends that you maintain a calcium
level of between 410 and 450 mg/L (ppm), an alkalinity level of 7 to 11
dKH (2.5 to 4 meq/L), and a magnesium level of 1250 to 1350 mg/L (ppm).
Note: Aquarists keeping SPS corals should consider keeping alkalinity
at 7 to no more than 9 dKH (2.5 to 3.21 meq/L).
Directions and protocol.
Shake well prior to use. Add 1 capful (5 ml) per 50 US-gallons (200 L) of marine aquarium water 1 to 2 times per week.
Dosing through use of a drip system is a superior
method of addition. Do not mix with buffers or alkalinity supplements
prior to addition. You may mix it with strontium, magnesium, and many
other supplements. See our website for compatibility of supplements.
It is not possible, with current test kits, to measure the exact dosage
of Coral Elements•N vitamin and trace minerals to add, so to dose,
simply add the above amount to the doser. In other words, add 1 capful
to the amount of solution that the doser will add in 2 to 4 days per 50
US-gallons (200 L) of marine aquarium water.
Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for
human consumption. Contains trace minerals, if ingested drink water.
