Fritz RPM Elements contain the essential building-blocks of reef keeping. Developed to easily adjust & maintain proper parameters, promoting healthier coral, coralline algae and invertebrates. It is impossible to maintain a healthy, vibrant reef aquarium without maintaining the proper levels of calcium, alkalinity and magnesium. FRITZ RPM Elements allows aquarists to maintain these critical components in their proper ionic balance. Unlike other similar products, Fritz RPM Elements do not contain unmeasured and unnecessary ions and metals, which unchecked can lead to toxicity in the aquarium. When used in conjunction with regular water changes using a high quality salt, like FRITZ RPM (Reef Pro Mix), RPM Elements will ensure the correct parameters for a healthy and beautiful reef aquarium!
- Use Instructions: 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 Fritz RPM Liquid Magnesium before adjusting calcium and alkalinity.Shake well before using. When added to the aquarium, some cloudiness is normal. Allow cloudiness to dissipate completely in between adding Pt 1 and Pt 2. Before beginning routine dosing, adjust the calcium level to within the range of 400-450 ppm.Adjustment Dosage: Begin by measuring the calcium concentration of the aquarium water and determine how much you wish to increase it. Each ml of Pt 2 will increase the calcium in 1 US gallon (3.78 L) of water by 15 ppm. One teaspoon (5 ml) will raise 10 US gallons by 7 ppm. Do not exceed 10 ml per 10 gallons daily.Routine Dosing: Once calcium has been adjusted to the desired level, recommended starting dose is 5 ml (1tsp) each of Pt 1 and Pt 2 per 20 gallons of aquarium water per day. Maintain calcium levels between 400-450 ppm 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.
