Seachem Reef Carbonate
Reef Carbonate is a concentrated (4,000 meq/L) optimized blend of carbonate and bicarbonate salts
designed to restore and maintain alkalinity in the reef aquarium.
Calcium and carbonates are essential to all coral growth. If either becomes deficient, coral growth will cease, followed by a rapid decline in coral health. To prevent this you must
provide carbonates (Reef Carbonate) and calcium (Reef Advantage
Calcium or Reef Complete).
Used as directed, Reef Carbonate will not deplete calcium, magnesium, or strontium which usually tend to precipitate with increasing alkalinity. Reef alkalinity should be maintained at 3-5 meq/L (8-14 dKH). Alkalinity should not be allowed to fall below 2 meq/L.
