Reef Blueprint Coral8 Yang pH and Alkalinity Component

pH and Alkalinity Component of Coral8 Yin and Yang Complementary Coral Culture System; pair with Coral8 Yin. Coral8 system provides calcium, strontium, magnesium, potassium, and alkalinity (maximum pH value of ~8.40). A simplified approach to encouraging aragonite formation in closed circulation marine ecosystems.

Active Components: USP-grade potassium and/or sodium salts of bicarbonate, carbonate, and borate.

Basic Application:
  • 1 mL per 26.4 gallons (100 L) increases alkalinity by 0.10 dKH.
  • 5 mL per 20.0 gallons (75.7 L) increases alkalinity by 0.60 dKH.
Recommended alkalinity value in established coral culture systems is ~8.0 - 9.0 dKH.

In established systems, increase alkalinity up to 1 dKH daily, until desired value or reference standard is reached.

If using with automated dosing apparatus, then do not introduce organic materials into the direct vicinity of the Coral8 Yang drip entry point, as these may saponify. Do not apply in close proximity to sessile invertebrates or developing finfish embryos. Monitor cohort for signs of distress when increasing average system alkalinity and pH values, and decrease or halt dosing if distress is noticed. Do not exceed maximum pH value of 8.40 in recirculating seawater systems. Example: If dosage volume per 24 h = 10 mL and dosing frequency = 4, then dose 2.5 mL per event.

Size: 355mL
