Wow, I consider these great numbers.

Quick everyone with blue corals put them in his tank to help with the strontium [emoji23]

Those elements that are high are common in 2 part and certain salt mixes. Nice job.

vanadium - daily maintenance dose of 0.07ml. If this dose is very low, then this can be alternatively be dosed weekly (daily dose x7).
manganese - daily maintenance dose of 1.52ml. If this dose is very low, then this can be alternatively be dosed weekly (daily dose x7).

fine tuning level 1 (adavanced)

Keep in mind the amounts are only if you're using their supplements.

I had acros with burning tips with super steady alk. My iodine was like ZERO. Using their iodine in the amounts provided the coral healed almost within 2-3 days. It was amazing.

write now I am taking inventory of their recommendations. Magnesium fix as prescribed, requires 3 Trace Base Magnesium 1000mL - Triton which is about $100, but probably worth the cost for the livestock

Interesting analysis. Thanks Sean for your input. Glad to know you're still lurking.


This hobby is like herpes - once you get it, it never goes away.

In all seriousness I am an aquarist lifer. Regardless of wether or not I have a tank running....just too busy with my business and my 2 little kids right now but I'll be back at some point.

Happy NY everyone
