 Dosing Instructions:

  • Add 1mL per gallon of tank water daily until desired calcium level is achieved.
  • Do not dose more than 2 mL per gallon per day. Calcium levels should be maintained from 400-450 ppm.
  • Exceeding a calcium level higher than 475 ppm can cause your alkalinity levels to fall out of range due to precipitation.

Calcium is used by corals to grow and thrive both in an aquarium and in the wild. Without calcium, corals and other calcareous organisms cannot survive. Hard corals use calcium, along with carbonates, to build their aragonite skeletal structures and some soft corals use calcium to help build their sclerites, which are responsible for maintaining their shape. Keeping a proper calcium level is crucial for the success of growing a captive reef.
