Provides all invertebrates with vital magnesium. Optimises the relation of the concentrations of Ca and Mg and enhances skeleton-building of corals. Supports the growth of haptophytes. Enriched with vital hydrogen carbonates. Suitable for dosing pumps. Contains 100,000 mg Mg. The main elements magnesium (Mg), calcium (Ca) and hydrogen carbonates (HCO3) have a decisive impact on the water stability (pH-value, alkalinity / carbon hardness) in the reef aquarium. Magnesium is involved in many biological functions and is embedded with calcium in the skeletons of several corals, many invertebrates, coralline red algae and higher algae. Magnesium liquid supplements the magnesium consumption in the reef aquarium and helps to keep the main elements' concentration ratio in the correct ion balance. Magnesium has the important function of acting as a calcification inhibitor by preventing the formation of calcite and so increasing the calcium carbonate solubility. Dosage: 10 ml increase the magnesium content by 10 mg for every 100 l. The magnesium content should be between 1,300 mg/l and 1,350 mg/l.
The magnesium content in natural seawater is approx.1,300 - 1,350 mg/l and is thus about three times higher than the calcium content. Magnesium is a mineral that is chemically similar to calcium, but is less consumed in a marine aquarium. Among the biggest consumers of magnesium are the calcareous algae, into whose calcite structure magnesium is "incorporated". Some soft corals and gorgonians (e.g. fan corals) are also magnesium consumers. Magnesium also has the important function of a calcification inhibitor in aquaria. Calcium carbonate solubility is increased by preventing the formation of calcite.
Magnesium keeps calcium in solution longer. Since calcium and magnesium are consumed in every marine aquarium, magnesium must be added to restore the correct concentration ratio between the earth alkali metals.
Power Magnesium and Magnesium liquid also prevent magnesium deficiency.
One dosing spoon Power Magnesium increases the magnesium content by 10 mg/100 l. Magnesium liquid is suitable for dosing pumps. 10 ml increases the magnesium content by 10 mg/100 l.
But be careful: Too high a magnesium content of 1,500 mg or 1,600 mg can harm the animals in the long run. When adding minerals to a saltwater aquarium, always keep in mind: A lot does not always help a lot and can also have the opposite effect.
