 Tropic Marin BIO-CALCIUM ORIGINAL BALLING Salts,  ABC Dry Balling Set, 3kg.

  • Balanced 3-part calcium dosage method for coral reef aquariums
  • Creates best conditions for aquarium coral & coralline algae growth
  • No excess sodium chloride to maintain ionic balance of aquarium water


Create best conditions for coral and coralline algae growth without decreasing important elements or upsetting aquarium water chemistry. Tropic Marin BIO-CALCIUM ORIGINAL BALLING Salts provide a highly efficient calcium supplementation program delivering calcium and alkalinity essential for healthy coral growth.

Balanced 3-part dosage method comprised of calcium chloride dihydrate (Part A), sodium bicarbonate (Part B), and sodium chloride-free sea salt (Part C) prevents unwanted sodium chloride buildup and maintains crucial ionic balance in the aquarium water. Pharmaceutical grade salts of the highest purity contain all 70 trace elements found in natural seawater.

Part A Calcium chloride dehydrate, Part B Sodium bicarbonate, and Part CSodium chloride-free sea salt each sold separately for convenient independent dosage that accommodates the unique calcium and alkalinity needs of your coral reef aquarium. Great for reef hobbyists on an established 3-part Balling calcium supplementation program. A/B/C Set is the perfect choice for hobbyists new to the 3-part Balling calcium supplementation method.

Benefits:

  • For a highly efficient supply of calcium using the Balling Method
  • The ion equilibrium is maintained
  • All components are available separately in packs of 1 kg/35.3 oz. or as a set (3 x 1 kg)
  • The three powdered salt mixtures A, B and C get separately dissolved in water
  • The separate solutions can be added to the tank either directly or by a dosing pump
  • Contains all 70 trace elements found in natural seawater
  • No unnatural by-products
  • Without phosphates and other pollutants
  • The separate solutions are very stable and can be stored indefinitely
  • The solubility of these elements is ensured by the use of pharmaceutical grade salts of the highest purity

 

How to use:
Dissolve the quantities of the salts separately, as indicated below, in individual containers of reverse osmosis water and dose equal quantities of the separate solutions daily or varying quantities of each separate solution to achieve the recommended levels in the aquarium. The resulting solutions are then ready to use. These separate solutions are very stable and can be stored indefinitely. The use of highly purified salts of pharmaceutical quality guarantees the resulting solutions are clear and pure.

Salt needed for 1 US-Gal. solution:
Calcium chloride dihydrate (Part A): 288 g / 12 scoops
Sodium bicarbonate (Part B): 318 g / 18 scoops
Sodium chloride free sea salt (Part C): 91 g / 4 scoops

Concentration of solution:
Calcium chloride dihydrate (Part A): 20,000 mg/l (ppm) Ca
Sodium bicarbonate (Part B): 2,800° dKH/l
Sodium chloride free sea salt (Part C): 3,350 mg/l Mg; 980 mg/l K

Recommended concentration in the aquarium:
Calcium chloride dihydrate (Part A): 400-450 mg/l (ppm) Ca
Sodium bicarbonate (Part B): 6-9° dKH
Sodium chloride free sea salt (Part C): ~1,300 mg/l Mg; ~400 mg/l K

Dosage per 100 l / 27 US-gal. of aquarium water:
125 ml / 1/2 US-cup / 4 fl.oz of each solution raise the calcium concentration by 25 mg/l (ppm) calcium and 3.5 °dH. The maximum recommended dose is 125 ml / 1/2 US-cup / 4 fl.oz. of each solution per day.

Tips & Tricks
The Balling Method for supplying Calcium and Carbonate

A balanced calcium dosage creates the optimum conditions for growth of coral and coralline algae. Calcium, alkalinity and pH work together in the water to reach calcite saturation, which is essential for growth of corals and coralline algae.

The basis of the Balling Method is the addition of calcium chloride 2-hydrate (CaCl2-2H2o) and sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3).

Sodium Chloride (NaCl) is formed as a by-product of the use of these salts by the corals. To balance this additional sodium chloride, the Balling Method adds sodium chloride-free sea salt as a third component. Combined with the solution chloride produced from the use of the first two compounds, this third part creates totally complete sea salt. In this way, the ionic balance of the solution is maintained.

The three salts are dissolved in three SEPARATE containers in reverse osmosis water and can be added by means of a dosing pump in a well-circulated area or at three different locations in the aquarium. This helps to avoid precipitation.

The salinity in the tank will be slightly increased by the addition of these salts. This increase will be easily adjusted when doing water changes or adding make up water.
