ECO Iron

Description: Provides iron for macroalgaes in a Refugium system.

Type: Reef Aquarium Supplement 
Main Points:   

• Raises iron content in marine systems 
• Phosphate and Nitrate Free 
• Provides immediate bio-available iron for all macroalgae  


Iron is important in promoting the growth of macro- and other calcareous algae. Although typically contained in most salt mixes, iron is rapidly depleted in the average reef system, either through normal biological processes (being used up by the inhabitants) or by being removed through protein skimming. By dosing regularly with ECO Iron macroalgae in refugium filters are less likely to reproduce sexually, helping to prevent any water quality issues in the main system. ECO Iron has been specially formulated to replenish and then maintain the iron concentration at a level that will ensure the optimal growth and health of macro- and other calcareous algae in the reef aquarium.ECO Iron helps increase green coloration in corals that use this spectrum. It contains no fertilizers, and will thus not cause outbreaks of hair algae or other undesirable organisms.

Directions for use:

To maintain optimal trace element iron concentrations in a typical reef system:Add 1 ml per 20 U.S. gallons (80 liters)of actual aquarium water volume per week. In cases where promoting the growth of Caulerpa or other types of macroalgae in the refugium is the desired goal, ECO Iron may be used at 3 times the recommended dosage per week.

Considerations for use:

ECO Iron should be used on a regular basis to maintain the iron concentration at a level that will ensure the optimal growth of macro- and other calcareous algae.
