Red Sea Reef Foundation ABC +

Very efficient additions for your reef aquarium.

A successful reef aquarium depends on how well the water parameters are kept which is the key to a stable coral environment. All elements in natural seawater play a role in providing optimum water parameters, but some are more important than others. These elements, the basis of the reef environment, include the three major components: Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg) and carbonates (CO3). All three have a major influence on water chemistry (pH stability, alkalinity, ionic strength) and on many of the coral's biological processes (skeletal formation, ion exchange, photosynthesis).

The basic elements complement each other in the formation of the coral skeleton. If these elements are not well balanced, this will limit healthy coral growth.

Reef Foundation ABC +: contains calcium, strontium, barium, bicarbonates, magnesium, potassium, boron, iodine and bromine formulated according to the exact ratio found in the coral skeleton.

This unique powder simplifies the daily dosing of more than just the basic elements, and is recommended for aquariums up to around 300 liters.

Specific instructions for Foundation ABC +

Red Sea Reef Foundation ABC + is a uniquely formulated powder supplement with all the basic elements of Foundation A, B & C, plus Red Sea Reef Colors A & B (potassium, boron, iodine and bromine) formulated in the exact ratio as present in the coral skeleton.

Although there are small differences between the types of coral, the average ratio between these elements is fairly constant. Supplementing all these elements in a fixed ratio according to the intake of calcium ensures an accurate replenishment based on the metabolic requirements of the corals.

Reef Foundation ABC + must be dosed on a daily or weekly schedule depending on the aquarium type and according to a measured calcium intake. Over time, an imbalance may occur between the Foundation elements. If dosing is done on a daily basis, the basic elements should be tested on a weekly basis, possibly making adjustments with the individual A, B & C supplements.

If dosing is done on a weekly basis, the basic elements should be tested monthly and adjustments made with the individual A, B & C supplements.

Note: Only a supplement to the elements included in Reef Colors A & B according to the measured intake of iodine and potassium.

Reef Foundationg ABC + must be added directly into the sump or, if necessary, the aquarium and must not be dissolved in advance in egosmose water.

Do not use Reef Foundation ABC + to make periodic adjustments to the calcium level. Do not add more than 60g of the Fondation ABC + at once to a system, regardless of size.

Larger doses can be added at 10 minute intervals between the spoons to dissolve the powder without causing precipitation.
