Strontium Dupla Marin provides reef coral with the required strontium for skeletal growth as supplies are exhausted very rapidly in aquaria and must be supplemented regularly. Essential for keeping giant clams and improves calcareous algae growth.
Strontium is a structure and trace element and is naturally found in sea water in a concentration of 8 mg/l. Next to calcium and magnesium, strontium is one of the most important trace elements and plays an important role in the care of stony corals, haptophytes and mussels. Furthermore, strontium is an essential trace element for the skeleton development of stony corals, as it is stored in the calcium carbonate crystal of the aragonite skeleton. The regular addition of Dupla Marin Strontium stimulates the growth of stony corals as well as that of the popular coralline algae. The growth of all Acropora and Pocillopora species is particularly improved. Strontium is not stable in aquarium water and is often undetectable after only 12–15 hours. The regular addition of Dupla Marin Strontium is important to prevent growth stagnation in corals or haptophytes due to strontium deficiency. The trace element molybdenum plays a vital role in the biology of many saltwater invertebrates and nitrifying filter bacteria. As reef-building organisms also use the molybdenum in the aquarium water, its levels have to be continuously replenished.
