Item #:237350
Availability:Usually ships in 2-3 business days
Price:$7.00


Unique kalkwasser product contains calcium, strontium, and magnesium in the same ionic ratios found in aragonite, increasing the usefulness to organisms like corals, clams and calcareous algae. Kalk +2 also provides a temporary alkalinity boost and maintains pH when used as directed. Contains 54.2% calcium per dry weight.

Specifications
Aquarium Type MARINE

Form POWDER

Instructions
Kalk+2 is intended for use by experienced hobbyists who are familiar with kalkwasser (calcium hydroxide-based) products.
The calcium concentration (�[Ca2+]�) and pH in the aquarium should be determined by using an accurate test kit prior to supplementing.
Do not add this product directly to an aquarium without diluting in water as directed, and do not overdose; it must be added in a controlled fashion with a dosing device.
Create a stock solution by dissolving 6 grams (1 tsp) of Kalk+2 in 1 US-gallon of fresh water (preferably purified) and allowing at least one hour for any settling to occur; each ml of the saturated solution will increase the [Ca2+] in 1 US-gallon (3.785 L) of water by 2.3 ppm, strontium concentration by 0.04 ppm, and magnesium concentration by 0.06 ppm.
This solution must then be dosed/dripped into the aquarium at such a rate that salinity does not fall below 1.021 g/cm3 and pH does not increase by more than 0.1 every hour, nor is it ever allowed to exceed a value of 8.5.
Dosing at night when pH in a reef aquarium is naturally depressed is often performed to avoid exceeding the maximum allowable pH value.

If the [Ca2+] in an aquarium is gradually dropping despite using this product as directed, the rate of evaporation may be insufficient or pH may be too high to dose sufficient calcium to compensate for the rate of removal by reef-building aquarium inhabitants and/or undesirable chemical reactions.
In this case, a secondary calcium supplement may be needed to occasionally re-establish the natural seawater concentration of calcium in the aquarium.

Caution: Calcium hydroxide is a caustic material; if inhaled, remove to fresh air, and in case of contact flush skin and/or eyes with fresh water for 15 minutes. Drink 16-oz. fruit juice if swallowed and seek immediate medical attention. Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption.

Ingredients
Calcium hydroxide, Strontium hydroxide, Magnesium hydroxide.

Calcium (min) 54.2% (542,000 ppm)
