Highly concentrated calcium and alkalinity powder

Tropic Marin® Carbocalcium Powder is highly concentrated calcium and alkalinity for dissolving in reverse osmosis water to get the proven Carbo-Calcium solution. After dissolving, one single solution can cover all the calcium and carbonate hardness requirements of a typical reef aquarium without undesirable additional compounds or excess carbon dioxide being produced. This ensures strong growth of corals, coralline algae and other reef organisms. 100 g (3.5 oz.) of Carbocalcium Powder containing more than 30,000 mg of calcium and more than 4,000 °dH.

This high-yield product is suitable for all tank sizes and prevents the side effects of other methods of calcium hardness: the pH remains stable; there is no excess CO2 and there is no risk of unwanted phosphates being introduced through coral breakage. In addition, there is neither a creeping increase in salinity, nor increased oxygen consumption through carbon compounds. After mixing, the resulting solution is suitable for both manual dosage and for dosing pumps.

Benefits:
• Extremely high yield: 700g Carbocalcium contains 215 g calcium and > 30,000 alkalinity (°dH)
• The pH value remains completely stable
• No phosphates or surplus CO2 are added to the aquarium
• The salinity remains constant (no sodium chloride is created)
• No danger caused by oxygen depletion
• Suitable for all tank sizes
• After mixing, the resulting solution is suitable for both manual dosage and for dosing pumps

How to use:
The 700 g (1.5 lbs.) can of Carbocalcium Powder is sufficient for 5 l/1.3 US-gal. liquid solution, the 1400 g (3 lbs.) can for 10 l/2.6 US-gal. liquid solution.

6 level measuring spoons (approx. 140 g/5 oz.) of Carbocalcium Powder are dissolved in 1 l/0.26 US-gal. reverse osmosis water to create the liquid mineral solution. This solution has a long shelf-life and contains 43,000 mg of calcium and 6,000 °dH.

You can now start with daily doses of 5 ml of the mineral solution for every 100 l/26 US-gal. aquarium system volume. Monitor the alkalinity level as you increase the daily dosage by 2.5 ml for every 100 l/26 US-gal. aquarium system volume every week until you reach a constant alkalinity level of 7 to 9 °dH.

Ultra concentrated calcium and carbonate hardness for advanced reef aquarists
With Tropic Marin® CARBOCALCIUM, the total calcium and carbonate hardness needs of a typical reef aquarium can be covered with a single solution, without any additional unwanted compounds or excess carbon dioxide being created.
Minerals are consumed through the growth of organisms and other processes in the aquarium and must therefore be supplemented regularly. These include mainly calcium and carbonate hardness elements for the growth of the calcareous skeletons of stony corals, red coralline algae and other reef organisms. The special co-ordinated components in CARBOCALCIUM create an ideal environment with only a single solution.
Tropic Marin® CARBOCALCIUM avoids all the side effects of other methods of calcium hardness: the pH remains stable; there is no excess CO2 and there is no risk of unwanted phosphates being introduced through dissolution of coral rubble. In addition, there is neither a creeping increase in salinity, nor increased oxygen consumption through carbon compounds.
Benefits
- For the first time, the calcium and carbonate supply is possible with only a single solution.
- Every day, a few ml of highly concentrated solution are enough to cover the entire calcium and carbonate hardness needs.
- Suitable for all aquarium sizes.
- No formation of by-products (e.g. sodium chloride); the salinity and the ion balance are not altered.
- No formation of excess carbon dioxide.
- Suitable for an aquarium stocked with soft corals, LPS, SPS and/or other filter feeders.
- Easy to apply – suitable both for manual dosing and for dosing pumps.
Ingredients
Tropic Marin® CARBOCALCIUM contains organic calcium salts.
1000 ml CARBOCALCIUM contain 40,000 mg calcium and 5,600 °carbonate hardness.
Application and dosage
Start with a daily dose of 5 ml of CARBOCALCIUM per 100 litres (26 US-gal) of aquarium system volume. Increase the daily dosage – by continuous monitoring of alkalinity – weekly by 2.5 ml per 100 litres (26 US-gal) of aquarium system volume, until a constant carbonate hardness of 7 to 9 °dH is reached. At the same time, check the calcium concentration in the aquarium - it should be between 400-440 mg/l.
Do not exceed a maximum daily dose of 25 ml of CARBOCALCIUM per 100 litres (26 US-gal) of aquarium system volume.
Other product recommendations
To further intensify the colour of the corals, we recommend the trace elements solutions PRO-CORAL K+ ELEMENTS and PRO-CORAL A- ELEMENTS from Tropic Marin®.
The very accurate, straightforward Tropic Marin® water tests KH/ALKALINITY-TEST and MAGNESIUM/CALCIUM-COMBITEST are suited for checking the quality of the water and the essential parameters.
