By trace elements we usually mean elements that are present in natural seawater in a lower concentration than approximately 1 mg / l or ppm. Some of these elements are essential to enable many biological processes. Manganese, for example, is essential for photosynthesis and many associated biochemical reactions. Some organisms require iron to absorb essential nutrients. Cobalt is essential for the formation of various coral pigments. Zinc, like manganese, is essential for photosynthesis and also for the formation of calcium carbonate by corals. These are just a few examples. Our research has shown that some trace elements are depleted very quickly (eg manganese), while other elements deplete very slowly. An example of a trace element that is hardly depleted is molybdenum.

Despite that, many trace element supplements contain significant amounts of molybdenum. This results in a much too high concentration of molybdenum, which stimulates the growth of unwanted Cyanobacteria. We have therefore refrained from adding molybdenum to our supplements. About Trace Hard Our research has shown which trace elements are consumed and at what rate. Although every aquarium is different, we have succeeded in designing a trace mineral supplement that adds enough trace elements for corals to thrive but prevents overdosing. The main difference between trace element use is between hard corals and soft / leather corals and calcified algae. We have therefore specially designed a trace element mix for hard corals (Salifert Trace Hard) and one for soft / leather corals and calcified algae (Trace Soft ™). Both can be combined based on the approximate ratio of the aquarium inhabitants. In this way a nearly perfect formulation of trace elements for various aquariums has become available. Additional recommendations Our Natural Iodine ™ is recommended to supplement the full range of trace elements. Instructions for use Salifert Trace Hard Dose 5 ml per 100 liters once a week. When combining with Trace Soft, the total dosage (ml Trace Soft + ml Trace Hard) must not exceed 10 ml per 100 liters.
