The Coral Essentials Method - Ultimate Control
The addition of trace elements proportional to the addition of Calcium and Carbonate in a marine tank is a well known supplementation technique. The most well known method is the Balling Method. We have developed our own method, based on the Balling Method, we call the Coral Essentials Method, using our own Coral Power Trace-A, B and C.
Other manufacturers of marine supplements determine the mix of calcium, carbonate and trace elements in their pre-mixed solutions for you with no way of varying the trace levels. But we know that not all tanks are the same, not all tanks are "one size fits all". Simply add the starting quantity of our Trace element mixes to your Calcium and Carbonate water, and then dose according to your usage. This ensures that you are only adding micro elements in the correct ratio of Natural Sea Water based on the uptake of Calcium and Carbonate in your tank. This uptake is predominantly determined by the quantity of SPS and other hard coral in your aquarium. It takes the guess work out.
Fine tune the amount of trace added to each based on growth, colour and vitality. Soon enough you will be adding micro-elements at the optimum ratio for your tank.
