3-Part Reef Maintenance System
Preserving the correct balance of important chemical components of seawater is crucial to the long term success of every marine reef aquarium. Of primary importance to the survival of corals, mollusks and many other reef invertebrates is the supply of calcium and carbonate ions. Without these components in the correct ionic ratio, invertebrates cannot deposit calcium carbonate in their skeletons or shells. Because organisms extract calcium and carbonate ions from the surrounding water, regular supplementation is necessary to replenish these ions.
Makes crucial reef tank maintenance simple and foolproof
Magnesium, calcium and alkalinity supplement system
Ionically balanced formulations
High purity ingredients
Developed by a professional biologist
Ideal for all corals, clams and other reef invertebrates
Corals and many other reef invertebrates require a constant supply of both calcium and carbonate in order to construct their skeletons. HyperReef Part 2 is the calcium component of our simple, two part system for reef tank maintenance. HyperReef Part 3 is the carbonate component of our system.· These two components are formulated to provide calcium and carbonate in ionically-balanced solutions made from high-purity ingredients.
All components of the HyperReef Maintenance System are free from contaminants such as ammonia, silicate, phosphate and organic matter.·
By following our simplified instructions for use, the various components of the HyperReef Maintenance System will meet the needs of reef tank hobbyists at all levels of experience, from novice to master.
Typical ocean surface values for these parameters are:
Magnesium 1280 ppm
Calcium 420 ppm
Alkalinity 2.5 meq/L (7 dKH)
HyperReef Calcium Part 2
Formulated from high-purity ingredients, Sicce HyperReef Calcium Supplement contains no silicate, nitrate, phosphate or organic matter, and was designed
by a professional biologist to be ionically balanced with Sicce HyperReef Alkalinity Supplement. Different brands of calcium and alkalinity supplements should not be combined, to avoid imbalances. Sicce HyperReef Calcium Supplement contains 74000 ppm of calcium.·
Each ml of product added per gallon will increase the calcium concentration by 19.4 ppm when used as directed. Calculate the correct dosage by following four simple steps.
Do not exceed 1ml/10gal every other day without testing the water and following instructions below.· Use with equal parts HyperReef Alkalinity Part 3.· Do not mix products together.· Add measured amount of product gradually, in an area of high water movement.·
1. Measure the calcium concentration of the aquarium.
2. Decide how much you wish to increase the calcium concentration. For example, if the aquarium tests 380 ppm and you want to reach a target concentration of 420 ppm, the amount of the increase is 40 ppm.
3. Multiply the amount of increase by the number of net gallons in the system.·
4. Multiply the result from step three by 0.0515. The result is the number of milliliters of supplement needed to reach the desired concentration.
