Coral Essentials, Coral Power Iron is a concentrated blend of Iron for marine aquariums. It is essential for zooxanthellae photosynthesis, the promotion of healthy macroalgae growth and enhanced green colouration in corals. Iron is also a base element used in bacterial metabolism which forms part of various physiological processes that occur in marine tanks. It can assist with the functionality of enzymes. Iron can be rapidly depleted in high bacterial mass systems. To ensure healthy SPS corals, zooxanthellae balance and healthy macroalgae and bacterial functions, maintain a dosing plan as detailed below. Variances above and below the recommended dosing can be made depending on your own tank conditions and density of coral present. Our Coral Power Iron contains Iron at a concentration of 100,000 ppm.
Dosage rate: We recommend starting off dosing 1 drop/day for each 100L of
tank water. If the results are good and depending on the coral density in your tank you can increase steadily to 2 drops/day over a period of a month or so. Do not dose higher than 2 drops/day for
each 100L of water in a heavily stocked system
For the advanced aquarist 0.1ml (2 drops) will raise the Iron levels by 0.1 ppm (mg/L) for each 100L of tank water. If you know the Iron depletion rate then dose accordingly
