Continuum Aquatics Coralline Purple CX
Continuum Aquatics Coralline Purple CX accelerates the natural look of marine tanks promoting coralline growth.
The Continuum advantage.
Coralline Purple CX is specifically designed to encourage and accelerate growth of purple and pink coralline algae without fertilising green algae.
Because it is made from expensive marine aragonite, with added supporting minerals, it will not pollute your system like inexpensive aquatic muds of terrestrial origin may.
It is phosphate and nitrate free.Use in aquarium keeping.
Coralline Algae is not only beautiful in the marine aquarium, it takes up the space where unwanted organisms might normally grow.
Because coralline algae is alive, it must be introduced into the aquarium by the addition of small pieces of live rock upon which it is already growing.
This doesn't take much. You may be able to get many different types growing on small chunks at your local aquarium store.
Some coralline algae will grow with little or no lighting, while others seem to enjoy strong reef lighting.
It is evident that lighting does play some role, so you should experiment with it.
It is important to measure phosphates and keep the level as low as possible to encourage coralline algae growth.
Continuum also recommends that you maintain a calcium level of between 410 and 450 mg/L (ppm), an alkalinity level of 7 to 11 dKH (2.5 to 4 meq/L), and a magnesium level of 1250 to 1350 mg/L (ppm).
