Calcium is a concentrated (50,000 mg/L) bioavailable polygluconate complexed
calcium intended to maintain calcium in the reef aquarium without altering pH.
Polygluconate complexation confers several benefits: it increases the
bioavailability of the calcium, it provides a rich source of metabolic energy to
help maintain peak coral growth, and it prevents calcium
precipitation/alkalinity depletion. Polygluconate contains no nitrogen or
phosphorous, thus it is biologically impossible for it to lead to algae growth
in a properly maintained reef system. Reef Calcium may be used alone to maintain
calcium but will provide enhanced levels of coral growth when used in
conjunction with an ionic calcium supplement (Reef Complete, Reef Advantage
Calcium). Reef Calcium is intended to maintain calcium levels; if calcium
becomes seriously depleted one should either perform a water change or use an
ionic calcium supplement to restore the depleted level of calcium.
