Seachem Reef Strontium Restores and maintains strontium to levels found in natural seawater. Strontium gluconate. Concentrated (10,000 mg/L)
Strontium occurs in natural seawater at a concentration of about 8 to 10 mg/L.
It is chemically very similar to calcium, and many organisms incorporate it in their skeletons along with calcium.
Its addition to reef aquariums aids the growth of corals, coralline algae and other organisms that lay down a calcereous skeleton or shell, including tridacnid clams.
Reef Strontium is intended to restore and maintain strontium to levels found in natural seawater without affecting pH.
Strontium is utilized in the same manner as calcium and holds a similar importance in maintaining a vigorous level of growth.
Reef Strontium contains 10,000 mg/L of available strontium as a gluconate complex.
Gluconate complexation confers several benefits:
For example, if you want to raise strontium by 2 mg/L in a 200 liter tank, then you would add 0.1x200x2=40 mL into the top-off water. [For reference: 1 gallon=3.8 L].
