kH Blend - A
- INCREASES THE RATE OF CORAL GROWTH
- REQUIRED IN THE FORMATION OF CORAL SKELETONS
ReeFlowers kH Blend will easily and effectively increase the concentration of carbonate, essential component of coral and invertebrate skeletons. Carbonate ions are also a major component of total alkalinity. Maintaining appropriate concentrations will not only improve coral growth, but will help to maintain a stable pH. in addition to carbonates, KH Blend contains Iodine, an element necessary for shrimp and coral health. By dosing KH Blend, a balanced amount of Iodine will also be supplemented, reducing or eliminating the need for separate dosing. Carbonates and total alkalinity are consumed as corals grow and acids formed by organic matter decay and fish metabolism are neutralized. It is important to monitor the concentrations regularly, using an accurate and reliable testing kit/device, as consumption rates are different for all aquariums depending on total biomass of the system. Only dose as much as is needed to maintain desired concentrations. Maintaining consistent water chemistry is essential to the health of reef and marine aquarium systems.
Prior to dosing, measure KH using an accurate and reliable test kit/device. Add a maximum of 2 tsp (10 mL) per 25 gallons (100 liters) per day until the desired level is reached. Once the desired KH is reached, periodic testing will determine system specific consumption rates and allow a dosing regimen to be established. Do not overdose as this may be harmful to the organisms in the tank. For reference, 1/4 tsp (1 mL) will increase KH by approximately 1dKH in 26 gallons (100 liters). To avoid precipitation, wait at least 30 minutes between dosing Calcium Bled and/or Magnesium Blend and KH Blend. Once the desired level is reached, optimum consumption can be determined by means of periodical tests; solution can then be added daily or weekly as required. If the daily consumption level exceeds 0.5 dkH, it is recommended that the solution is added continually via a dosing pump.Derived from Potassium Iodide and Carbonate salts.
