At ZeoBoxReef.com.au, we bring you an in-depth exploration of Coral Essentials Trace Elements product line, including Calcium + Trace, Magnesium + Trace, and Carbonate + Trace. Discover how these concentrated formulas, infused with our proven Coral Power Method, can revolutionise your reef-keeping experience.

**1. Coral Essentials Calcium + Trace: A Foundation for Growth**

*Coral Power Method Integration:*
Our Calcium + Trace formula is a concentrated source of liquid calcium, boasting an impressive 100,000 ppm (mg/L). Enriched with our proprietary Coral Power Trace A and B elements, this blend is meticulously crafted for medium-density SPS systems. The inclusion of Coral Power Trace A and B eliminates the need for additional trace elements, streamlining your dosing regimen.

*Dosage Recommendations:*
For those with high SPS density tanks, a simple adjustment is recommended. Start with an additional 0.25ml of each Trace A and B and observe the results. Gradually increase as needed. Regularly monitor calcium levels to fine-tune dosing requirements, ensuring an optimal range of 430-470ppm for most aquariums.

**2. Coral Essentials Magnesium + Trace: Balancing Act for Vibrant Coral Growth**

*Coral Power Method Integration:*
Magnesium + Trace is a concentrated liquid magnesium solution, featuring 12,500 ppm (mg/L). Infused with Coral Power Potassium, our unique blend ensures a balanced environment. Choose from three dosing options based on your tank type – Soft Coral / LPS System, Mixed Reef System, or SPS Dominant System – and follow our simple recipe. Alternatively, use our dosing calculator for customized dosing tailored to your tank's needs.

*Optimal Magnesium Levels:*
Maintain ideal magnesium levels of 1300-1350ppm for vibrant growth in SPS and hard coral-dominant systems. Regular checks and adjustments will accommodate the changing dynamics of your tank as corals grow and new additions are made.

**3. Coral Essentials Carbonate + Trace: Alkalinity Harmony for SPS Dominance**

*Coral Power Method Integration:*
Carbonate + Trace is a liquid carbonate source with 100,000 ppm (mg/L) or 5,600dKH, enriched with Coral Power Trace C elements. Tailored for medium-density SPS systems, this blend eliminates the need for additional trace elements unless you have a dominant SPS system.

*Dosage Adjustments:*
For high SPS density tanks, consider adding extra Coral Power Trace C by starting with an additional 0.25ml of each Trace C. Regularly check alkalinity (KH) levels and adjust dosing to maintain the optimal range of 8.5 – 9.0 dKH for high growth in SPS and hard coral-dominant systems.

Do I have to be present at home to receive my order?

No, it is not necessary to be present as all orders are marked with an "Authority to leave" notice. If a secure and safe location is not available on your property and the order cannot be left at your doorstep, such as in the case of apartment buildings, we suggest having your order delivered to your workplace.

Can I expect the coral I see online to match what I receive in my order?

Shopping for live coral for sale online can be a source of worry for reef hobbyists, who can never be entirely sure what will arrive in the mail. Will it resemble the coral they saw online? While there is no substitute for an in-person viewing of the coral, we offer What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) corals to alleviate concerns. Our WYSIWYG corals allow you to preview the actual coral fragment or colony before making a purchase. We take pride in photographing all our corals under Ecotech Radion G5 LED Light fixtures. We use professional-grade Full Frame DSLR cameras and lenses to capture the highest quality representation of the coral. We also provide multiple photos of the coral under different light spectrums, including full spectrum (white light) and heavy blue spectrum. We also offer size approximations for every coral in centimeters. This measurement is taken when the coral is fully expanded, providing you with a better understanding of the amount of space the coral will occupy in your aquarium.
