ESV B-Ionic Transition Elements Plus+ 32oz
B-Ionic Transition Elements Plus is the latest product by ESV, formulated by Bob Stark in colaboration with Joe Yaiullo. B-Ionic TE Plus+ changes the nutrient dynamics of reef aquaria without the use of specialized chemical media. It provides a conservative level of organic carbon, synergistically combined with trace elements to maximize heterotrophic bacterial uptake of nitrate and phosphate. B-Ionic TE Plus+ can also provide many potential benefits such as enhanced production of marine snow, and mitigation of any hydrogen sulfide release within the aquarium.
Also, enhanced coral coloration, better polyp extension, and increased water clarity have been observed with the use of B-Ionic TE Plus+. This product has been formulated to prevent accumulation of the transition elements provided.
If nitrate concentration is less than 5ppm, or falls below 5ppm while using B-Ionic Transition Elements Plus+, use B-Ionic Transition Elements instead. For first week, dose 1ml/40gals (1 drop per 2 gals) daily. After first week, increase dose to 1ml/20gals (1 drop per gal) daily, and continue testing nitrate on a weekly basis. When adding full dose at once, add within the first few hours of photoperiod. When using a dosing pump, add entire dose only when aquarium lights are on.
Do not use: B-Ionic Transition Elements Plus+ when using other forms of organic dosing, use B-Ionic Transition Elements instead.
CONCENTRATION:1ml/20gals of aquarium water adds a total of 19.4ppb Transition Elements (iron, manganese, zinc) plus 670ppb organic carbon (from citric acid, ascorbic acid, sodium citrate)
IONIC CONTENTS: Citric acid, chloride, sodium, ascorbic acid, citrate, sulfate, iron, potassium, manganese, sorbate, zinc
