MARINE SOURCES Calcium Reactor Media
As the organisms in your aquarium grow, many remove calcium and alkalinity from the water column. Corals, coralline and calcareous algae, mollusks (snails, etc.), clams, and numerous other invertebrates all need calcium and alkalinity to survive and reproduce.
MARINE SOURCES Calcium Reactor Media maintains the level of calcium and alkalinity within a reef aquarium. More importantly, a media for reactors maintain the proper balance of calcium to alkalinity, which is critical over the long term. Where calcification is concerned, these two values are intimately related (one affects the other, and vice versa). Most other methods of supplementation can lead to an undesired imbalance between calcium and alkalinity. Indeed, it is this imbalance that often lies at the heart of poor coral health.
