Reef Trace

  • Supplies a broad range of trace elements
  • Reef Trace™ may be used alone or in conjunction with Reef Plus™
  • Reef Trace™ is nitrate/phosphate free

Replenishment of a number of trace elements is required to maintain an environment ideal for the growth and reproduction of marine life, but while the importance of trace elements has been recognized by aquarists for many years, the physiological reasons are not fully understood. The chemical elements in seawater are varied, and, likewise their addition to the aquarium in trace quantities has varied effects on a variety of saltwater plant and invertebrate species. In general, though, these elements are important for metabolic processes and pigment formation.

Reef Trace™ supplies a broad range of trace elements demonstrated to be necessary for proper reef health and growth. Trace elements are normally depleted by utilization, oxidation and precipitation. The latter two processes occur more rapidly than with other micronutrients. This makes it important to restore trace elements on a regular basis. Reef Trace™ may be used alone or in conjunction with Reef Plus™. Best results are obtained when both are used. Reef Trace™ is nitrate/phosphate free.

Sizes: 100 mL, 250 mL, 500 mL, 2 L, 4 L

Use 1 capful (5 mL) for every 80 L (20 US gallons) twice a week. When using in conjunction with Reef Plus™, dose on alternate days.

A: No, the mineral content levels in Reef Trace™ are minerals more appropriate for corals and other inverts in a reef system, while Marine Trace™ is more appropriate for nutrient levels found to benefit marine fish.
