Too low a calcium concentration slows down the growth of corals and calcareous algae. Natural Sea Water contains 400 – 450 mg / L calcium. This is also the value we should strive for a stable aquarium, fluctuations in the calcium content should not exceed approx. 15 mg / L. About Salifert Coral Calcium We have very concentrated this addition. In fact, a higher concentration is impossible. Each liter of Salifert Coral Calcium contains approximately 160,000 mg of calcium. Something you’ll appreciate when you consider that an average aquarium consumes 5-8 mg of calcium per liter every week. To avoid an ionic imbalance, we look for a good balance between calcium and ions such as sulfate, chloride, bromide, sodium and magnesium.
