Reef Trace™ supplies a broad range of trace elements demonstrated to be
necessary for proper reef health and growth. Trace elements are normally
depleted by utilization, oxidation and precipitation. The latter two
processes occur more rapidly than with other micronutrients. This makes
it important to restore trace elements on a regular basis. Reef Trace™
may be used alone or in conjunction with Reef Plus™. Best results are
obtained when both are used. Reef Trace™ is nitrate/phosphate free.
Replenishment of a number of trace elements is required to maintain an
environment ideal for the growth and reproduction of marine life, but
while the importance of trace elements has been recognized by aquarists
for many years, the physiological reasons are not fully understood. The
chemical elements in seawater are varied, and, likewise their addition
to the aquarium in trace quantities has varied effects on a variety of
saltwater plant and invertebrate species. In general, though, these
elements are important for metabolic processes and pigment formation.
Addition of iron, for instance, has been shown to benefit coloring and
growth for corals, anenomes, and other photosynthetic animals.
