Strontium additive for marine reef aquarium
hw® storntip is a high concentrated, on strontium basing preparation for reef and marine aquarium. hw® storntip acts growth-inducing and improves the pigmentation of stone and soft corals, as also form molluscs and calcareous algae.
Through the combination with co components in hw® storntip the absorption of the provided strontium in the cell- and organic tissue structures would be stimulated and improved. By this way the optimal supplementation of strontium to all reef organisms would be ensured.
Interesting facts about strontium (Sr) in natural marine water
The element strontium is present in natural marine water (and also in hw® Marinemix professional & hw® Marinemix reefer) in a concentration of about 8 – 10 mg/l.
Strontium (Sr) is biophysically very similar to the element calcium (Ca) an many of the marine life forms needs it, in combination with calcium, to reinforce their skeleton structures.
The regularly dosing of strontium with hw® strontip allows all calcium absorbing marine reef organisms like stone corals, Tridacna clams and calcareous algae to generate a stronger growth and avoids the otherwise possible deficiency symptoms.
The optimal and healthy growth of acropora sp. corals in a reef aquarium is standing strong dependency of a optimal strontium concentration in the aquarium water!
Recommendation of use / Dosing
To ensure the optimal supplementation with strontium in the marine aquarium, please add :
2 ml hw® strontip per every 100 liter aquarium water every 14 days.
If the aquarium has a very high life stock density, the dosing can be elevated up to a maximum dosage of 2,5 ml hw® strontip per every 100 liter aquarium water every 14 days.
3 ml hw® strontip per every 40 US gal of aquarium water every 14 days.
If the aquarium has a very high life stock density, the dosing can be elevated up to a maximum dosage of 4 ml hw® strontip per every 40 US gal of aquarium water every 14 days.
A high overdose can be hazardous for the organisms in the aquarium!
By applying higher dosing please check the strontium concentration in your aquarium water.
