* Strontium is structurally similar to calcium and it can be absorbed and start stored in hard tissues in most marine organisms along with calcium.
*Strontium is found in marine plants and is the second most abundant element after calcium, found in coral skeletons. In concentrations after calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate , strontium carbonate is present in coral rock formations. Corals take up less strontium as temperatures rise, so more strontium will be used in reef systems that are maintained at temperatures below 74° to 77° F.
* Molybdenum is essential for life in very small quantities. It plays an important role in nitrogen fixation, nitrate reduction and enzymatic activity, and is necessary for growth of algae and zooxanthellae.
* Deep Ocean uses pure Fcc grade Strontium & Molybdenum ion.
* Deep Ocean Strontium & Molybdenum powder supplement solution is depleted in reef aquariums with active calcification and metabolism rates.
* Deep Ocean Strontium & Molybdenum powder is excellent source of Strontium for aragonite and coral skeleton.
* Deep Ocean Strontium & Molybdenum powder supplement a cause rapid growth rates of corals and other reef-building invertebrates.
* Strontium is utilized by corals, clams invertebrate, coralline algae.
* We suggest targeting the natural seawater concentration of Strontium ion (8-12 ppm).
* For all marine aquariums.
* Prevents deficiency symptoms of Strontium & Molybdenum ion.
* Free of nitrate & phosphate.
* Free of harmful chelators.
Basic: Dissolve 1 grams of Deep Ocean Strontium & Molybdenum powder per 40 US-gallons of aquarium water in 250 ml of fresh water; add every other day or as needed to maintain the Strontium concentration within a range of 8- 12 ppm.
Advanced: Create a stock solution by dissolving 2 grams of Deep Ocean Strontium & Molybdenum powder in 250 ml of fresh water (preferably purified)each ml of the solution will increase Strontium concentration [Sr2+] in 1 US-gallon (3.785 L) of water by ~ 0.7 ppm.
Reference: Each gram of Deep Ocean Strontium & Molybdenum powder will increase the [Sr2+] in 1L of water by 328.63 ppm.
