What is Chinese Astrology

Obviously it is best to try to re-create natural sea water levels so our prized livestock will thrive, but unfortunately our little glass boxes are nothing like the ocean.The ocean is a massive volume of water which never gets dirty or suddenly gets saturated with ammonia and of course does not need to be The Language of Lust replaced regularly.Due to the fact the corals in our tanks will deplete some of the parameter levels, we will need to replenish these ourselves. Let’s assume hypothetically we have a 75 gallon mixed reef aquarium with a mixture of hard and soft corals. Firstly I would suggest a synthetic reef salt with a decent level of magnesium, calcium and alkalinity. A mix like D&D H20, Red Sea Pro Reef or Tropic Marin Pro Reef would be a good choice. With regular water changes the parameters may not need much attention.

Perhaps dosing occasionally via a 2 part or just kalkwasser may be enough to maintain this type of reef with the regular water changes.This would depend of course on regular testing of parameters via test kits. I personally like Salifert kits, for the home hobbyist they are more than adequate to carry out the task of accurate results. If, however, you decide to keep a full blown SPS reef, then a quality salt and 2 part dosing won’t really be enough to maintain the reefs parameters. In this case I’d suggest a calcium reactor, as well as kalkwasser. A magnesium supplement may also be required. I would recommend, that for a complete beginner to a home reef aquarium, a soft or mixed reef aquarium is the best way to start off. It is a lot easier to maintain water quality in this type of reef.
