Reef Basis Iron is a high quality, bio-available, chelated iron complex designed to safely raise the iron level in marine aquariums, providing essential iron for increased growth rates in caulerpa, coralline algae, other calcareous marine algae and many other marine organisms.
It contains no gluconates, or polygluconates. It is phosphate and nitrate free and contains no fertilizers that could cause unwanted hair algae growth.
Use in aquarium keeping.
Iron is crucial for photosynthesis in all plants, including caulerpa, mangroves, calcareous algae, and symbiotic algae in coral, marine clam and other invertebrate tissues.
In marine aquariums, iron is used up rapidly and removed through precipitation. Reef Basis Iron is chelated with EDTA, a professional sequestrant that will allow it to remain soluble until used by the life that requires it.
Growth of all photosynthetic organisms also require strong lighting of proper spectrum. Consult your lighting supplier for assistance in the proper type of light, and photo periods for the corals and algae that you are growing.
Directions and protocol.
Example: if you have a 100 gallon tank and you want to raise the level by .05 ppm with the entire dose, you would multiply 100 x .05 x 1.0 which equals 5 ml of Reef Basis Iron or 1 capful.
