Product: OceanLife Strontium + Barium 400ml
The Berliner bases its success on the use of live rock , strong lighting, abundant water movement and filtration entrusted to a skimmer . In this way it creates an environment that simulates what happens in the natural reef , or the removal of pollutants by surface- skimmer and a reduction in non-polar compounds pollutants by live rocks (which are home to an internal collection of microorganisms able to complete the nitrogen cycle ) .
Strontium is a very important element for the life of marine organisms and for the chemical balance of the water.
It is normally eaten by many organisms such as corals and coralline algae that incorporate this element within its skeleton.
Strontium is essential to successfully breed the beautiful calcareous algae . In the absence of this element , their growth is very slow .
Many studies also show how strontium positively affects the growth of hard corals , highlighting its integration within the skeleton . In aquaria in which this element is maintained in natural values , the corals appear more healthy and less brittle branches .
Barium is another important element present in seawater at very low concentrations ( 0.0062 mg / l). It is used by planktonic microalgae that feed the microfauna , is used by shellfish and is located inside the shell . It ' also present within the coral skeleton .
Low concentrations of Barium inhibit the growth of Nitrobacter agilis , one of the most common aerobic bacteria nitrifying .
Strontium restores safely Barium and Strontium in marine aquariums .
Measure the concentration of strontium in the water bath and add their own daily until achievement of 8 mg / l (ppm ) . Tested periodically to maintain the value at the right level . Shake well before use .
Dosage simplified :
3 ml every other day on average 100 liters in aquarium populated . In case of higher or lower consumption , change the amount or frequency of integrations.
