Easy Reefer® Easy Z™ Aquarium Alkalinity
It’s no secret that the Alkalinity level in your aquarium is a crucial element to the success of your aquarium's overall health. Regularly monitoring the alkalinity level will ensure that you maintain a healthy, happy environment for your marine life, which, at the end of the day, is what we are all striving to do.
The ideal alkalinity level in aquariums is not quite a one-size-fits-all approach. The species you choose to have in your tank will dictate your ideal alkalinity level requirements. While 7.0- 12.5 dKH is acceptable in a basic saltwater set up, (natural seawater is 6.8 - 8.2 dKH depending on location) reef tanks in particular do better when the levels stay in the middle of that range—between 8.0 - 9.0 dKH. Always understand the needs of your marine life so you can ensure you give them the best possible environment to thrive. Once you understand the ideal aquarium alkalinity levels for your tank, Easy Reefer® Easy Z™ is ready to help you achieve the ideal alkalinity for your fish or corals.
Easy Reefer Easy Z is designed to provide aquarium alkalinity, as well as other key elements such as potassium, bromine, iodine, fluorine and boron to help build strong aragonite and enhance coral color. Aragonite is calcium carbonate and is the main building block for reef structure. It’s also particularly important for stony corals and their skeletons. When aragonite elements are low in concentration, corals may develop brittle calcite, which leads to lower bone density and overall slower growth.
When used alongside our Easy E™ supplement, Easy Z provides your aquarium with the necessary major, minor, and trace elements required for coral health. The Easy Reefer supplements are perfect for those who do not have much space in their sump for multiple dosing units.
Every aquarium is unique due to its natural biodiversity and filtration. Therefore, your aquarium may need additional top-ups of major, minor, and trace elements. If it does, we recommend using our Aragonite Enhancers™ and Bioactive Color Intensifiers™ and/or our Reef Essential® Signature Series™.
Easy Reefer Easy Z can be used in the following tank environments to help your aquarium alkalinity levels stay in the optimum range:
Recommended Alkalinity concentration = 7.4 - 10.5 dKHRecommended Potassium concentration = 375 - 400 ppmRecommended Iodine concentration = 0.06 - 0.09 ppmRecommended Bromine concentration = 55 - 75 ppmRecommended Boron concentration = 4 - 5 ppm
– Deionised water
– Alkalinity (165,000 ppm)
– Potassium, iodine, bromine, fluorine and boron (secret mix)
– Energy (secret mix)
When dosing Easy Reefer Easy Z to ensure optimal aquarium alkalinity levels, we recommend following our dosage guidelines below:
Lightly stocked = 0.50 mL/100L (26 US gal) per day
Moderately stocked = 0.75 mL/100L (26 US gal) per day
Heavily stocked = 1.00 mL/100L (26 US gal) per day
Or dose as required to keep: Alkalinity 7.4 - 10.5 dKH Potassium 375 - 400 ppm Iodine 0.06 - 0.09 ppm Bromine 55 - 75 ppm Fluorine 1.2 - 1.4 ppm Boron between 4 - 5 ppm*
*Please Note: 1 mL/100L (26 US gal) will raise alkalinity by 0.09 dKH; other elements will increase relatively.
