  • Notes

    • Calcium is a major constituent of calcareous algae, skeletal material of hard corals and the skeletal needles of soft / leather corals.
    • Calcium also fulfills many biological functions.
    • Low calcium concentration retards coral and calcareous algae growth.
    • Natural saltwater contains 400 – 450 mg/L calcium.
    • In a stable aquarium environment the calcium content should not fluctuate by more than 15 mg/L.
    • Calcium test kits should be able to monitor comparable fluctuations.
    • In a healthy aquarium growth and multiplication of corals, desired calcareous algae and other organisms results in calcium depletion.
    • Use of a calcium additive together with an accurate test kit are important for monitoring and maintaining proper calcium levels.
    • Salifert’s calcium test is capable in resolving the calcium content in 10 mg/L steps.
    • The color change is sharp and facilitates the detection of small but highly significant fluctuations in the calcium concentration.
    • The kit can perform approx. 50 - 100 measurements.
