The bluetang® dosing salts range, proudly made in Great Britain...

bluetang® kh buffer

Carbonate is an essential component in the formation of calcium carbonate skeletons, i.e. coral growth. The kh level in marine tanks need to be checked regularly to determine the carbonate uptake in your system. How much carbonate being used can be calculated by testing at regular intervals to see how much the KH level drops during the set interval. Then it is simple to calculate dosing requirements to suit the depletion rate.  We recommend mixing your KH solution by following our simple how to mix bluetang dosing salts guide.  Your tank will change over time as coral grows, new pieces are added as well as invertebrates that also take up carbonate. We have found ideal KH levels to be at about 8-9 dKH for most aquariums.

bluetang® calcium

Calcium is an essential component in the formation of calcium carbonate skeletons, i.e. coral growth. The calcium level in marine tanks need to be checked regularly to determine the uptake in your system. How much calcium is being used can be calculated by testing at regular intervals to see how much the calcium level drops during the set interval. Then it is simple to calculate dosing requirements to suit the depletion rate. After you have determined this, a regular check of the calcium levels should be made. We recommend mixing your Calcium solution by following our simple how to mix bluetang dosing salts guide. Your tank will change over time as coral grows, new pieces are added as well as invertebrates that also take up calcium. We have found ideal calcium levels to be at about 430-470ppm for most aquariums.

bluetang® magnesium

Coral take up magnesium into their calcium carbonate skeletons. It is important to maintain adequate magnesium levels as this is essential in maintaining correct calcium and alkalinity levels. Poor magnesium levels usually result in the need for addition of much higher levels of calcium and carbonate than would normally be required. It serves to prevent the excessive precipitation of calcium carbonate from aquarium water. The magnesium levels in marine tanks need to be checked regularly to determine the take up in your system. Magnesium usage can be calculated by testing at regular intervals to see how much the level drops.  Then it is simple to calculate dosing requirements to suit the depletion rate. After you have determined this, a regular check of the magnesium levels should be made. We recommend mixing your magnesium solution by following our simple how to mix bluetang dosing salts guide.  Your tank will change over time as coral grows, new pieces are added as well as most other aquarium inhabitants also take up magnesium. We have found ideal magnesium levels to be at about 1350-1400ppm for most aquariums.
