Two Little Fishies Calcium Concentrate makes it easy to rapidly adjust the calcium level in an aquarium. The long-term maintenance of calcium levels is best managed with a balanced ion supplement such as Kalkwasser or Two Little Fishies C-Balance, which maintain alkalinity in addition to calcium concentration. Use Two Little Fishies Calcium Concentrate to raise the calcium concentration when the alkalinity level is already high. In this case, Calcium Concentrate will simultaneously raise the calcium concentration and lower the alkalinity level, bringing both closer to a natural seawater ratio. When the calcium and alkalinity levels are properly balanced, stop using Calcium Concentrate, and continue using a balanced supplement such as C-Balance, which provides carbonates and bicarbonates, calcium, magnesium and strontium in the correct ratios.

Dosage: Add one capful (5 mL or 1 teaspoon) per 10 gallons to raise the calcium level approximately 15 mg/L. The effect on calcium concentration by a dosage depends on the alkalinity level, because high alkalinity causes a precipitation of some of the calcium dosed. Use a calcium test kit and an alkalinity test kit to monitor these parameters and determine the quantity of Calcium Concentrate needed to achieve the desired calcium level. Natural seawater at a specific gravity of 1.025 has a calcium level of approximately 400 mg/L and an alkalinity of 8 dkH. To promote coral growth the calcium level should be maintained above 350 mg/L and the alkalinity should be maintained between 8 and 12 dkH.
