Si

Your Silicon levels are too high.

Check for possible contamination source. To help you in finding the source of error, we have listed the most frequent sources of contamination for silicon (sorted in descending order of frequency):

1. RO/DI Supply
2. Iron based phosphate remover (not RowaPhos or PhosBan)
3. SIPORAX Type media
4. Ceramics

Renew PO4 remover media, use AL99 or RowaPhos / PhosBan

Mo

Your Molybdenum levels are slightly elevated. This can lead to severe bacterial growth (Cyano, etc.).

Check for possible contamination source. To assist you in finding the source of error, we have listed them the most common sources of molybdenum (sorted in descending order of frequency):

1. Trace element overdose / contamination
2. Food
3. Contaminated salts

To remedy this we recommend carrying out 6 x 15% water changes with Tropic Marin Pro salt or Red Sea Salt (blue bucket), spread over 6 weeks

Li

Your Lithium levels are slightly low.

Please dose as recommended in the DOSE tab.

Br

Your Bromine levels are too low.

WARNING! Dosage only to be carried out by advanced reef keepers.

Due to the possible hazardous nature of dosing Bromine the dosage amounts include a safety factor to ensure that the risk of overdose is reduced. This may result in further dosing being required with subsequent ICP testing.

Please follow the directions on the Dose tab.

Al

High levels of Aluminium have been found in your system.

As high levels of Aluminium can be dangerous to your aquarium you should try to find the contamination. To assist you in finding the source of error, we have listed them the most common sources of aluminium (sorted in descending order of frequency):

1. Aluminium based Phosphate remover
2. Zeolite
3. Metals in water

Use ROWAphos or Phosban phosphate remover media to remove the aluminium.

Important for your aquarium

I

We have detected a lack of iodine.
A Iodine dose can have the following benefits for your aquarium:
- Improves overall health of SPS corals and macroalgae
- Promotes metabolic processes in the reef aquarium
- Can be helpful against parasites and inhibit their reproduction
To restore the natural value, please refer to our recommended dosage.

We recommend the corrective dosage of 3.47 ml for 1 day.

We recommend a daily maintenance dose of 0.35ml. If this dose is very low, then this can be alternatively be dosed weekly (daily dose x7).

Sr

We have detected a lack of strontium.
A strontium dose may have the following advantages for your aquarium:
- Can positively affect coral health
- Important for the development of healthy coral skeleton
To restore the natural value, please refer to our recommended dosage.

We recommend the corrective dosage of 29.88 ml for 1 day.

We recommend a daily maintenance dose of 1.00ml. If this dose is very low, then this can be alternatively be dosed weekly (daily dose x7).

Show me the product to use

P

The analysis has found a low phosphorus / phosphate level in the aquarium.
In case of problems we recommend to remove/reduce the phosphate absorber from the system and to increase feeding.

For problems with Cyanobacteria, the product that best suits your system is:

TRITON Organic Supplements P Beta

For a fish tank without algae/Cyanobacteria problems the product that is best suited is:

TRITON Organic Supplements P Alpha

Please contact us for further support on hello@triton.de

We recommend the corrective dosage be carried out over 2 days. For the first day the dosage should be 0.496ml. On the last day please use 0.444ml.

Fine-tuning Level 1 ( Basic )

V

We have detected a lack of vanadium.
A vanadium dosage may have the following advantages for your aquarium:
- Can have a positive effect on the growth of sponges, sea squirts and SPS and LPS corals
- Can promote a better polyp extension
- May intensify the color of Acropora and Montipora
To restore the natural value, please note our dosing recommendation.
To keep this value, please note our maintenance dose. For calculating the maintenance dose proceed as follows:
1st Test: dose maintenance dose xml
2nd Test: old maintenance dosing xml (from the 1st test) + new maintenance dose meter (from the 2nd test) XML.
3. Test:: old maintenance dosing xml (from the 1st test) + old maintenance dosing xml (from the 2nd test) + new maintenance dose xml meter (from the 3rd Test).
4. Test: see above. Thereafter, the dosage should not be increased, even though the analysis indicates a value of 0.

We recommend the corrective dosage of 0.60 ml for 1 day.

We recommend a daily maintenance dose of 0.04ml. If this dose is very low, then this can be alternatively be dosed weekly (daily dose x7).

Mn

We have detected a lack of manganese.
A Manganese dose may have the following advantages for your aquarium:
- Can be useful for keeping LPS corals, for example, Goniopora respond very positively to Manganese dosage
- Can promote better polyp extension
To restore the natural value, please refer to our recommended dosage.
To keep this value, refer to our maintenance dose. For calculating the maintenance dose proceed as follows:
1 Test: dose maintenance dose xml
2 Test: old maintenance dosing xml (from the 1st test) + new maintenance dose (from the 2nd test) xml dosing.
3 Test:: old maintenance dosing xml (from the 1st test) + old maintenance dosing xml (from the 2nd test) + new maintenance dose xml meter (from the 3rd Test). Thereafter, the dosage should not be increased, even though the analysis indicates a value of 0.

We recommend the corrective dosage be carried out over 2 days. For the first 2 days the daily dosage should be 4.96ml.

We recommend a daily maintenance dose of 0.83ml. If this dose is very low, then this can be alternatively be dosed weekly (daily dose x7).

Fine-tuning Level 1 ( Advanced )

Ni

Warning, dangerous element for the aquarium. Dosage for professional, experienced aquarists only!
A nickel dose may have the following advantages for your aquarium:
- Can improve the color image of coral
- Can improve the overall health of LPS and SPS corals
Attention, the concentration of nickel in natural seawater is so low that it can not be detected. If a dose is desired, begin with the recommended dosage listed below and test the value regularly in our laboratory. If nickel are detected, they have overdosed and should adjust the dose immediately. You can increase the dosage of nickel slowly until they see a positive effect.

We recommend the corrective dosage be carried out over 3 days. For the first 2 days the daily dosage should be 9.92ml. On the last day please use 4.96ml.

Zn

We have detected a lack of zinc.
A zinc dosage may have the following advantages for your aquarium:
- Can promote enzymatic processes in reef aquariums
- Can promote color and health of LPS and SPS corals
To restore the natural value, please refer to our recommended dosage.
To keep this value, please refer to our maintenance dose. For calculating the maintenance dose proceed as follows:
1st Test: dose maintenance dose xml
2nd Test: old maintenance dosing xml (from the 1st test) + new maintenance dose (from the 2nd test) XML.
3. Test:: old maintenance dosing xml (from the 1st test) + old maintenance dosing xml (from the 2nd test) + new maintenance dose xml meter (from the 3rd Test). Thereafter, the dosage should not be increased, even though the analysis indicates a value of 0

We recommend the corrective dosage of 1.98 ml for 1 day.

We recommend a daily maintenance dose of 0.20ml. If this dose is very low, then this can be alternatively be dosed weekly (daily dose x7).
