  • Phosphate and silicate free
    Tech Notes
    Directions and protocol

    Liquid:
    Shake well prior to use. Add 1 capful (5 ml) per 50 US-gallons (200 L) of marine aquarium water 3 to 4 times per week. For best results, measure the strontium concentration and add as required to maintain the concentration between 8 and 13 mg/L. Dry Form:
    Dissolve 1/2 gram, about 1/8 teaspoon of product in 8 oz. ( 236 ml )purified water. Add in an area of high flow directly to tank for each 20 gallons capacity, every other day until the desired Strontium level is reached. For best results, measure the strontium concentration and add as necessary to maintain between 8 and 13 mg/L (ppm). Expert use

    Liquid:
    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 calcium, magnesium, and many other supplements. See our website for compatibility of supplements. Determine the amount of strontium consumption during the time it takes add the entire volume of your drip system. Determine the amount of Reef-Basis Strontium to add in milliliters by multiplying your tank capacity in gallons by the amount you want to raise it in mg/l (ppm) and by 0.133. (Example: if you have a 100 gallon tank and you want to raise the level by 1 ppm with the entire dose, you would multiply 100 x 1 x 0.133 which equals 13.3 ml of Reef-Basis Strontium or about 2-2/3 capfuls). Dry Form:
    To dose, determine the amount of strontium consumption during the time it takes add the entire volume of your drip system. Determine the amount of Reef•Basis Strontium to add to your drip system in grams by multiplying your tank capacity in gallons by the amount you want to raise it in mg/l (ppm) and by 0.0074. ( Example: if you have a 20 gallon tank and you want to raise the level by 3 mg/l (ppm) with the entire dose, you would multiply 20 x .0074 x 3 which equals .44 grams or about 1/8 teaspoon of Reef-Basis Strontium. Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Dry form gets hot when mixed with water. Not for human consumption. Contains strontium chloride, if ingested drink water. If in eyes flush with water.
    Description
    Liquid:
    Reef-Basis Strontium is a high quality, maximum strength ionic strontium solution which is two to three times as strong as most competing products and designed to safely raise the strontium level in marine aquariums, providing essential strontium for increased growth rates in corals, coraline algae, crustaceans and many other marine organisms. It contains no acetate, gluconates, polygluconates or other unnecessary organics to pollute your aquarium. It is phosphate and silicate free. May be used simultaneously with Kalkwasser.

    Strontium is required for formation of aragonite accounting for up to 1% of its weight, and some strontium is lost to precipitation. With regular use of Reef-Basis Strontium, corals will open more, resist bleaching and resist skeletal rejection better. Continuum recommends that you maintain a strontium level of between 8 and 13 mg/L (ppm), 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). Do not add Reef-Basis Strontium to buffering (alkalinity) products.

    Dry Form:
    Reef-Basis Strontium is a high purity strontium in dry form, designed to safely raise the strontium level in marine aquariums, providing essential strontium for aragonite formation and coral and other invertebrate growth. It contains no acetate, EDTA, polygluconates and is much stronger than many competitor's products because it is made from anhydrous salts, not hydrated salts.

    Continuum recommends that you maintain a strontium level of 8 to 13 mg/L (ppm), 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).
