Reef•Basis Kalkwasser is a high quality calcium hydroxide, the original German limewater method of adding calcium, providing essential calcium for increased growth rates in corals, coraline algae, crustaceans and many other marine organisms. It contains no acetate, EDTA, gluconates, polygluconates or other unnecessary organics to pollute your aquarium.
Kalkwasser is primarily designed for maintenance and does not work rapidly, so you should first use our Reef•Basis Calcium if you have severely depleted calcium levels and need to raise them rapidly. Proper control of calcium level is imperative for the health and growth of corals and many other invertebrates. Continuum recommends that you maintain a calcium level of between 410 and 450 mg/L (ppm), an alkalinity level of 7 to 11 dKH (2.5 to 4 meq/L), and a magnesium level of 1250 to 1350 mg/L (ppm). Note: Aquarists keeping SPS corals should consider keeping alkalinity at 7 to no more than 9 dKH (2.5 to 3.21 meq/L).
This product is only meant for use by advanced hobbyists that are familiar with Kalkwasser. Never add powder directly to the aquarium! Dissolve 6 grams, about 2 teaspoons of product in 1 gallon of purified water to make a saturated solution. Stir vigorously, let stand for several hours. A white precipitate will form on the bottom of the container, and a crust may form on the top of the solution, this is normal. Decant the clear liquid into a dosing system and drip slowly over several days. Discard precipitate. Each gallon of Kalkwasser solution will raise the calcium level about 48 ppm in a 20 gallon (80 L) aquarium. Test the calcium level with a good quality test kit and adjust the addition rate as necessary to maintain the desired level.
Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption. Contains strongly alkaline calcium hydroxide, if ingested drink plenty of water or acidic fruit juice, consult your medical practitioner or a poison control center. If in eyes flush with water for 15 minutes, consult your medical practitioner. If on skin flush with water.
Ideal For Direct Fed Coral
A nutrient package that stimulates feeding response.
Mix two parts tank water to one part Coralific Delite™ to form a gel. Wait 3 minutes to set then use a dropper to place mixture on the mouth of the coral to be fed.
Ideal for many LPS (large polyp stony corals) and sea anemone which have larger mouths.
Squirt & Go™ Feeding
Mix four parts tank water to one part Coralific Delite™ to form a low viscosity liquid with a creamy texture. Use a dropper to squirt food with a slow motion in the vicinity of the corals to be fed. The viscosity can be adjusted by increasing or decreasing the amount of tank water.
|We recommend Hikari Marine CORALIFIC DELITE as a daily diet for|
|Soft corals like horny coral and feather dusters which have a smaller mouth.|

Upgrade your Ecotech Marine Radion XR30 Light!
Even Spread & Coloration
Once you put the XR30 Diffuser on your Ecotech Radion LED light you will instantly see a better balance of light throughout your aquarium. PAR tests have proven that even though the overall peak PAR numbers will decrease, the lower light areas will actually receive more light from a diffused source. The overall light loss is around 20%, and since a majority of us do not use even 80% of the available lighting output, the PAR loss can be combatted by increasing the overall power delivered to the LEDs.
Increased Spectrum Blending
Diffusing LED lights greatly helps blend the overall spectrum into one cohesive light source. Traditionally aquarium LEDs have used optics to increase the penetration of the light, but doing so actually makes each LED into its own little spotlight, making it harder for colors to blend. With the overall amount of light available in modern reef tank LEDs, more power is not exactly the best thing, and throughout our testing, we have found that evenly spread light that is blended properly is more important for coral health and growth.
LED lights are known for producing a lot of shimmer, also known as the "disco-ball effect" and the Ecotech Radion Diffuser directly attacks this problem head-on. With the overall goal being to mimic the natural sunlight or metal halide shimmer effects, the XR30 Diffuser is not perfect, but it gets much closer than almost any LED available today.
Installation only takes a few minutes, and by unscrewing the bottom plate with a Phillips screwdriver, you can then attach the mounting adapter plate. The diffuser lens will then magnetically attach to the adapter plate. The magnetic attachment makes the diffuser lens very easy to clean

The HI747-25 are high quality reagents that are pre-measured, allowing for users to achieve fast and accurate measurements with their Copper Low Range Checker® HC. These reagents follow the Bicinchoninate Method in which the reaction between copper and the reagent causes a purple tint in the sample. By simply adding the packet of HI747-25 reagent to the sample, the reaction will take place and the HI747 will determine the concentration from the color that is produced. The results will be displayed in ppb of copper. These reagents are designed to be used with samples that have an expected range of 0 to 999 ppb copper.
