Overview Two-part liquid supplement makes establishing calcium buffering capacity simple. Contains the correct ratio of major, minor and trace ions, including magnesium and strontium. Creates the optimal conditions for growth in stony corals and coralline algae.
Instructions Using the measuring caps provided, add equal amounts of part A & B to the aquarium, separately. Rinse the measuring caps with water between doses. Do not mix parts A & B together or with other supplements in dosing reservoirs. Depending on the rate of calcification, it may be necessary to add C-Balance daily, or only a few times per week. The dosage required is based on alkalinity, which should be maintained between 2.5 and 3.5 meq/L (7-10 dKH). Monitor with a reliable test kit. Begin with 5 ml (1 tsp) of each part per 75 L (20 gal) of aquarium capacity per day. Pour into a strong current stream for rapid dispersal. Part B may cause temporary cloudiness. Maximum dose: 1 ml per gal (3.8 L) per day, which corresponds to an increase in total alkalinity of 0.5 meq/L. Exceeding the maximum dose may cause the pH to rise too high temporarily. Divide the maximum dosage into at least two doses to avoid causing the pH to rise to quickly.
Precipitation of part B When exposed to temperatures below room temperature some precipitation of part B may occur. The crystals go back into solution above 75?F (24?C). Store above 60?F (15?C).
Warning Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and mouth. May cause moderate to severe eye irritation or corneal injury, which may be slow to heal. Repeated contact may cause redness and dry cracked skin. Store away from acids and metals. Firs Aid: Eye/Skin contact: Flush with water for 15 minutes. Seek medical attention if irritation persists. Keep out of reach of children. For aquarium use only. Not for human consumption. Not for use with fish or other animals raised for human consumption.
