The Continuum advantage.

Color•Basis Calcium + is designed to be used with the Coral Color Intense System, which also requires the use of 3 other products simultaneously: Coral Color Intense V, H and MM. The System replaces crucial vitamins, minor and trace minerals lost to coral uptake, and filtration, for growth and intense coloration of live corals. This product, Color•Basis Calcium + along with the Coral Color Intense products above provides the calcium, strontium and other minerals required by the phytopigments that provide color in corals.


Use in aquarium keeping.

Vitamins and minerals influence the coloration and color intensity of corals by providing essential nutrients for the chemical reactions that take place to form biochromes in living tissues. In addition to the three Coral Intense Supplements, we recommend that you also use Coral Exponential to provide needed amino acids for coral tissue growth. Continue supplementation of major minerals. We recommend Color•Basis Calcium+ (this product), Reef•Basis Magnesium and Reef Basis KH for major mineral supplementation simultaneously. Discontinue iodine and trace element supplements because those will be provided by the Coral Intense System. Feed animals normally.

The hobbyist should pay close attention to the alkalinity, or KH of the system and monitor calcium, magnesium and strontium levels. Continuum recommends that you maintain a calcium level of between 410 and 450 mg/L (ppm), an alkalinity level of 7.5 to 9 dKH (2.5 to 3.21 meq/L), and a magnesium level of 1275 to 1350 mg/L (ppm).


Directions and protocol.

Shake well prior to use. Add 2 capfuls (10 ml) per 50 US-gallons (200 L) of marine aquarium water 3 to 4 times per week. For best results, measure the calcium concentration and add as required to maintain the concentration between 410 and 450 mg/L.


Easy expert use.

Dosing through use of a drip system is a superior method of addition. Do not mix with buffers or alkalinity supplements prior to addition. See our website for compatibility of supplements. Determine the amount of calcium consumption during the time it takes add the entire volume of your drip system. Determine the amount of Color•Basis Calcium+ to add in milliliters by multiplying your tank capacity in gallons by the amount you want to raise it in mg/l (ppm) and by 0.0757. (Example: if you have a 50 gallon tank and you want to raise the level by 10 ppm with the entire dose, you would multiply 50 x 10 x 0.0757 which equals 37.85 ml of Color•Basis Calcium+ or about 7-1/2 capfuls).


Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption. Contains calcium chloride, if ingested drink water. If in eyes flush with water.
