We detected elements in your water that can be harmful for your tank.
More information about each element is listed below.

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

Sr

The analysis has found that the Strontium level in the aquarium is low.

For your chosen Habitat we would recommend to also follow the daily dosage advice of Strontium as this should benefit the animals in your aquarium.
3 weeks prior to fragging we would recommend that you double the daily dosage.

Mo

Your Molybdenum levels are too high. 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

Li

Your Lithium levels are too low.

Please dose as recommended in the DOSE tab.

Sr

Your Strontium 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.

Ca

Your Calcium levels are slightly elevated.

Check for accuracy of home Ca test kit, if used.

If you are dosing additional Calcium on top of regular doses, then reduce.

If you are running the Triton Method, then you can reduce the dosage from Base Elements solution No2 and monitor with a reliable home test kit. Once the measurement has dropped back down to 440 mg/l then return the dose back to equal amounts as the other solutions.

Important for your aquarium

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 be carried out over 2 days. For the first day the dosage should be 99.2ml. On the last day please use 50.8ml.

We recommend a daily maintenance dose of 5.00ml. If this dose is very low, then this can be alternatively be dosed weekly (daily dose x7).

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 be carried out over 2 days. For the first day the dosage should be 4.96ml. On the last day please use 0.99ml.

We recommend a daily maintenance dose of 0.60ml. If this dose is very low, then this can be alternatively be dosed weekly (daily dose x7).

B

We have detected a lack of boron.
A boron dosage can have the following benefits for your aquarium:
- Stabilization of the pH value in the aquarium
- Can promote the colour and health of SPS and LPS
To restore the natural value, please refer to our recommended dosage.

We recommend the corrective dosage of 23.56 ml for 1 day.

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 3 days. For the first 2 days the daily dosage should be 0.496ml. On the last day please use 0.218ml.

Fine-tuning Level 1 ( Basic )

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).
