How to Start Using Coral Essentials

One of the most common questions we receive at Coral Essentials is, "How do I start using your marine aquarium supplements range?". It's simple to answer, and simple to follow, just like the rest of our advice here at Coral Essentials. However it is one question we feel needs to be answered well to ensure your experience with our products is the absolute best it can be.

The basic core products for all marine tank maintenance is the Primary Care Range. Whether you use our excellent range of pre-mix products already containing Trace:

Calcium + Trace
Carbonate + Trace
Magnesium + Trace

Or make up your own Calcium, Alk and Mag solutions with our range of primary care powders:

Calcium Up (make sure you add Trace A and B)
Carbonate Up (make sure you add Trace C, Boron and Bromide)
Magnesium Up (Make sure you add Potassium)

To ensure the above powder self mixing products are the same as our "+ Trace" products above, you need to add our range of Coral Power Trace A, B and C, Boron, Bromide and Potassium.

Coral Power Trace A (only if using our Calcium Up or other calcium supplement)
Coral Power Trace B (only if using our Calcium Up or other calcium supplement)
Coral Power Trace C (only if using our Carbonate Up or other carbonate supplement)
Coral Power Boron
Coral Power Bromide
Coral Power Potassium

Also if you are using other brand products of powder only or pre-mixed Calcium, Carbonate or Magnesium then you may need to add the Coral Power Trace, Boron Bromide and Potassium range.  Check with the manufacturer specifications of their products to see if the full range of Trace elements has already been added, if not then add each as required.

The following 2 products are the essential feeding supplements to ensure your coral has the food and nutrients they need to thrive.  So step 3 is very important to feed with Power Amino and Power Gro.

It is an often overlooked requirement but maintaining a self sufficient biological process for the production of nitrifying bacteria is vitally important. So Step 4 is using Coral Power Bacteria Food as it aids in the reduction of Nitrates and used in conjunction with Coral Power Bio Clean helps reduce organic waste.

At the advanced level there are two paths. One is to push your tank to limits of colouration, vibrancy growth and feeding that you never thought possible with the use of our Black Label "+" range, Chroma+, Vibrance+ and Energy+. These products offer everyone from beginner to advanced enthusiast a way to improve all aspects of your tank. We believe it is the Ultimate Step, Step 5.



Also you may need to maintain or increase levels of individual  elements as you determine is required. These elements are only used if you have deficiencies that need supplementation above the use of our Trace elements range or you are after specific colour enhancements. The final step or the Tweaking Step:

Coral Power Boron
Coral Power Bromide

Coral Power Iron
Coral Power Iodine
Coral Power Reef KI3
Coral Power Fluoride
Coral Power Potassium
