Calcium Chloride Supplement  25Kg Bag (flakes)

Calcium chloride supplement for dosing marine aquariums to increase calcium levels.

Calcium is one of the major ions in seawater. Its concentration in natural seawater is about 420 ppm, so it comprises just under 1.2% by weight of seawater's solids. In the ocean, variations from this concentration are most often caused by changes in salinity, which cause the calcium to fluctuate just as the salinity does. A calcium ion carries two positive charges in seawater and is written as Ca++.

Calcium is very important in a reef aquarium as many organisms, including corals and coralline algae, take it up in order to deposit calcium carbonate skeletons. If it is not maintained at adequate levels, such organisms become stressed and can even die. We recommend that reef aquarists maintain calcium at 380-450 ppm.

 Package makes approximately 50 gallons of calcium supplement
• Dissolves completely and easily in purified water
• Lab tested and pharmaceutical grade
• Phosphate and Ammonia free

Recommended Dosage: 500ml or 440grams makes 1 gallon of high quality calcium supplement

Instructions for use:  Add 500ml of the Calcium Chloride pellets to a clean dry 1 gallon container. Fill the container about ¾ full with RO/DI or filtered water; shake vigorously for about 2 minutes. Fill the remaining portion of the container and let sit overnight before adding to the aquarium. For best results, drip Calcium slowly into the sump of the aquarium.

Recommended Calcium levels are between 380-450 PPM.  Most reef aquariums use between 1ml - 5ml of mixed solution per day depending on demand.

You will need the following (Not included):

    1 new clean food grade container with sealable lid
    1 gallon of RO/DI or filtered water.  If you are buying the water you can also use the jug as your mixing container.
    Clean plastic funnel
