Red Sea Reef Foundation ABC+
Red Seas Reef Foundation ABC+ is a uniquely formulated powder supplement containing all of the elements of Foundation A, B & C, plus Red Seas Reef Colors A & B (potassium, boron, iodine & bromine) formulated in the exact ratio as found in the coral skeleton. Although there are slight differences between the coral species, the mean ratio between these elements is fairly constant. Supplementing all of these elements in a fixed ratio according to the uptake of calcium will ensure an accurate replenishment based on the metabolic demands of the corals.
Reef Foundation ABC+ should be dosed on a daily or weekly basis according to aquarium type and according to a measured uptake of calcium. Over time an imbalance may occur between the foundation elements. If dosing daily, test all of the foundation elements weekly and make adjustments with the individual A, B & C supplements. If dosing weekly test all of the foundation elements monthly and make adjustments with the individual A, B & C supplements.
[Note: Only supplement the elements included in Reef Colors A & B according to a measured uptake of iodine and potassium.]
Reef Foundation ABC+ should be added directly to the sump and not dissolved in top-up water.
Do not use Reef Foundation ABC+ to make periodic adjustments to the calcium level.
Do not add more than 60g of Foundation ABC+ at one time to any system irrespective of size. Larger doses can be added in 10-minute intervals between spoons to allow the powder to dissolve without causing precipitation.
Reef Foundation ABC+ contains Calcium, Strontium, Barium, Bicarbonates, Magnesium, Potassium, Boron, Iodine, and Bromine formulated according to the exact ratio found in the coral skeleton. This unique powder supplement simplifies the daily dosing of more than just the foundation elements and is recommended for aquariums of up to about 300 liters
1g per 100 liters will give a Ca of 1.5ppm
