It is impossible to maintain a healthy, vibrant marine aquarium
without also maintaining the proper levels of calcium and alkalinity. FRITZ RPM
CALCIUM/BUFFER SYSTEM allows aquarists to maintain these two critical
components in their proper ionic balance. Unlike other similar products, FRITZ
RPM CALCIUM/BUFFER SYSTEM does not contain unmeasured and unnecessary ions and
metals, which unchecked can lead to toxicity in the aquarium. PART 1 is
formulated to provide the highest purity carbonate alkalinity, and when used in
conjunction with PART 2 along with regular water changes with a high quality
salt like FRITZ RPM SALT it will provide the correct ionic balance necessary for
healthy and beautiful fish, corals, and invertebrates.
Guaranteed Analysis: Alkalinity (min) 8,000 dKH
Ingredients: Deionized water, Sodium bicarbonate, Sodium carbonate
NOTE: If magnesium levels are too low, the addition of calcium
and alkalinity supplements will simply result in the chemical precipitation of
calcium carbonate. Adjust the magnesium concentration first with
Shake well before using.
When added to the aquarium some cloudiness is normal. Allow
cloudiness to dissipate completely in between adding PART 1 and PART 2.
Before beginning routine dosing, adjust the alkalinity to within the range of
8-11 dKH (2.8-3.9 meq/L).
Adjustment Dosage: Begin by measuring the alkalinity of the
aquarium water and determine how much you wish to increase it. Each ml of PART
1 will increase the alkalinity in 1 US gallon (3.78 L) of water by 2.1 dKH
(0.75 meq/ml). One teaspoon (5 ml) will raise 10 US gallons by 1.06 dKH (0.38
meq/L). Do not exceed 5 ml per 10 gallons daily, and always avoid an immediate +/-
0.2 change in pH.
Routine Dosing: Once alkalinity has been adjusted to the desired
level, recommended starting dose is 5 ml (1tsp) each of Part 1 and Part 2 per
20 gallons of aquarium water per day. Maintain alkalinity between 8-11 dKH
(2.8-3.9 meq/L) by testing daily and adjusting dose accordingly. Depending on
the degree of calcification occurring in the aquarium, dose may have to be
significantly increased over recommended starting dose.
For best results test levels regularly and adjust dosage accordingly.
