Short Description: Simple Science Calcium Chloride Anhydrous 5lb
Item #: AL215

Subcategory:
Related Product: Simple Science Calcium Chloride Anhydrous 1.5lb
Substitute Product: Simple Science Calcium Chloride Anhydrous 15lb
Use product with: Measuring Kit

 

Corals and many other reef invertebrates require a constant supply of both calcium and carbonate in order to construct their skeletons. Before initiating a program of calcium and alkalinity supplementation, it is crucial to adjust the magnesium concentration of the aquarium to approximate the natural seawater concentration of 1280 ppm. Otherwise, unwanted chemical precipitation of calcium carbonate may occur.

Preparing Solutions: Dissolve one household measuring cup PLUS one tablespoon of this product in one liter of water, preferably RO or de-ionized water. To prepare one gallon of solution, dissolve four household measuring cups (one dry quart) of this product in a total of one gallon of water. Do not add dry powder directly to the aquarium. Always dissolve in a small amount of water first. Follow the instructions for determining how to dose the prepared solution.

Preparing Solutions: Dissolve one household measuring cup PLUS one tablespoon of this product in one liter of water, preferably RO or de-ionized water. To prepare one gallon of solution, dissolve four household measuring cups (one dry quart) of this product in a total of one gallon of water. Do not add dry powder directly to the aquarium. Always dissolve in a small amount of water first. Follow the instructions for determining how to dose the prepared solution.

CAUTION: Dissolving the dry powder in water produces heat! The solution will get hot. Mix in a heat proof container and transfer to a storage jug using a funnel. Alternatively, immerse the mixing container in a bucket of cold tap water when mixing.

Do not exceed 1ml/10gal every other day without testing the water and following instructions below. Use with equal parts AquaLife Simple Science Alkalinity. Do not mix products together. Add measured amount of product gradually, in an area of high water movement.

Calculate the correct dosage by following four simple steps.
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.

To convert milliliters to:
• teaspoons, divide by 5.
• tablespoons, divide by 15.
• fluid ounces, divide by 30.
• cups, divide by 240.
