Potassium levels of approximately 400 ppm similar to that of natural seawater is recommended for good coral health. Adding potassium helps increase blue and purple colors in some corals. Older aquariums with a large amount of coral can develop a depleted level of potassium. Low levels of potassium can result in dull coloration and inhibit that coral growth process.
