ReeFlowers Potassium Blendis a high-density ionic potassium solution.
Potassium is an important component of coral skeletal structures. Low levels of potassium may cause discoloration and coral tissue loss. Potassium also plays an important part in regulating neurological functions and is consumed by most aquarium inhabitants. The solution also contains pigments that boost the purple and blue colors of some polyps.
Potassium Blend contains a minimum 100.000ppm of potassium in 33.8 fl oz (1 liter). The potassium concentration found in natural seawater is approximately 400 ppm. The value in the aquariums should be approximated to this value.
Every aquarium has a different potassium consumption level. Before using the product determine the potassium concentration of the aquarium using an appropriate test kit. Add 1/4 tsp (1 mL) of solution to raise the potassium level 1 ppm per 26 US gallons (100 liters). or water. When you are initially raising your potassium level a maximum of 1 tsp (5 mL) of solution can be used daily for every 26 US gallons (100 liters).
Once the desired level is reached, your tanks consumption can be determined by means of regular tests. Potassium Bled can then be added daily or weekly as required. If a potassium test is not used, it is recommended for a average reef aquarium to add 1/2 tsp (2 mL) of solution is added for every 26 US gallons (100 liters) of water on a weekly basis. For long term use, no more that 0.8 tsp (4 mL) should be used per 26 US gallons (100 liters) on a weekly basis.
For reference 1 cap = ~1.2 tsp (6 mL)
