The ideal value of calcium for a marine aquarium is between 380-450 mg/Lt (ppm) and for planted freshwater aquarium 100 mg/Lt (ppm). Be..
The alkalinity of a solution refers to its capacity to buffer against drops in pH. It is a measure of the concentration of various negatively charged ionic compounds (anions) such as carbonates, bicarbonates, borates and hydroxides in the aquarium water. The concentration of these ions determines the buffering capacity of the water to maintain proper pH. If the percentage of..
Magnesium (Mg) is present in a high quantity (1300-1350 ppm) in natural seawater. Contrary to its not only quantitative significance, this element was ignored as an important parameter of the marine aquarium for a long time.
We know today that Magnesium creates a remarkable improvement in the growth of calcareous algae and also has a positive influence on the growth of i..
