    Lab Grade Calcium Hydroxide Ca (OH)2

    • Adds Calcium Ions Required by most Reef Inhabitants
    • Increases Alkalinity
    • Encourages Growth of Pink, Purple and Green Calcareous Algae
    • Elevates pH
    • Precipitates Phosphate
    All aquariums experience a significant amount of evaporation. You will regularly be adding "make up water" to replace the evaporated water. The salt in your tank does not evaporate, so do not add salt to your "make up water" mix. Always use R/O water, not tap water for your replacement water. Evaporation, plus protein skimmers, also depletes very important calcium. Frequently check the water level in your sump. Once your aquarium has been established, put a mark on the sump so you can easily see how much water has evaporated from the system. MICROBE-LIFT/Kalkwasser additions will also help to maintain the pH and alkalinity of your aquarium. The hydroxyl ions from the MICROBE-LIFT/Kalkwasser mix neutralizes some of the acids that accumulate in the system. An ideal pH range is between 8.2 - 8.3. Don't let your pH go above 8.5 during the day, although there will be a temporary rise when you add the MICROBE-LIFT/Kalkwasser mix. It is important not to let the pH rise above 8.6 (day time reading) even when the MICROBE-LIFT/Kalkwasser mix is added in. The safest way of monitoring and dispensing of MICROBE-LIFT/Kalkwasser is through a dispensing system. The ideal alkalinity is 7 to 10 dKH. The ideal calcium concentrate is between 2.5 - 3.75 meq/L.

    Available Sizes

    • 1 lb. (454 g.) (KALKSM) Treats up to 255 gal. (964 L.)
    • 4 lb. (1,814 g.) (KALKMD) Treats up to 1,020 gal. (3,861 L.)

    Caution

    • Calcium Hydoride should be handled with care as it is a caustic material.
    • When making your MICROBE-LIFT/Kalkwasser mix wear a dust mask or face filter.
    • Also wear gloves and eye protection.
    • Avoid contact with eyes and skin as the Calcium Hydoride is corrosive to skin and eyes.
    • Calcium Hydoride will cause irritation and inflammation to mucous membranes and respiratory passages.
    • In case of contact, immediately flush skin with large amounts of water or vinegar.
    • If Calcium Hydoride comes in contact with eyes, flush with water for a minimum of 15 minutes.
    • Call a physician and ChemTrec day or night at 1-800-424-9300.

    DOWNLOAD SDS A newly developed proprietary formulation that was developed to provide Iron in a chelated form easily available for caulerpa and calcareous algae. It will replace the iron normally lost through, filtration, livestock absorption, and protein skimmers. MICROBE-LIFT/Chelated Iron (Plus Buffer) will help maintain the reef water to a proper pH balance. Why MICROBE-LIFT/Reef & Marine Supplements? Sea salt mixes can contain 70 or more of natural saltwater’s essential and trace components. These help sustain water quality for the fish, corals, invertebrates and/or macro-algae as nature intended. In an aquarium “closed system”, protein skimmers, ozonizers, carbon filters and dynamic biochemical processes can reduce the important components, including calcium, strontium, molybdenum, iodide, bromide, iron, vitamins, amino acids and essential trace minerals. Iron is beneficial to all photosynthetic invertebrates and plants. Improves growth, coloring, and expansion.

    100% Natural Expellant for Parasitic Diseases

    Provides a chemical-free treatment effective against parasitic diseases including:
    • White Spot (Ich)
    • Costia
    • Flukes (gill & skin)
    • Trichodina
    • Chilodonella
    • Oodinium
    MICROBE-LIFT/Herbtana is a unique, herbal, immune-enhancing stimulant, which reduces: skin flukes, gill flukes, Ich, Oodinium, Costia, Chilodonella and Trichodina. Parasitic infections are characterized by symptoms, such as: milky skin, flashing and heavy breathing. Parasites are generally present on most fish at very low levels at all times. These are naturally controlled by the fish's immune system. When stress levels increase, the ability of the immune system to respond to its requirement to control the natural level of parasites is directly affected. This poor response allows parasites to increase in numbers, thus causing any of the serious above mentioned health issues in the host fish. MICROBE-LIFT/Herbtana supports the fish's immune system, driving off the excess parasites. Since they cannot return to the fish during treatment, the majority of the parasites will starve without a host. MICROBE-LIFT/Herbtana is safe for all aquatic life. It is a great aid to use when acclimating fish to a new environment.

    Cautions

    • Do not use with any other medications or treatments
    • Do not use with any algaecides or copper based products
    • Avoid contact with eyes. If contact happens, flush eyes thoroughly with cold water
    • Keep out of reach of children

    Clean Aquarium Substrates Without Removing Them

    For SALT & FRESH WATER
    • Provides rapid and natural sludge & muck removal
    • 80% faster than bacterial products alone
    • Reduces and binds nutrients including phosphates
    • Organic and microbial based
    • Natural & Non-Caustic
    Years in development, MICROBE-LIFT/Gravel & Substrate Cleaner speeds the biological breakdown of slow to degrade organic waste matter from aquarium bottoms that may become toxic to fish and plant life. As organic solids accumulate on the aquarium bottom they begin to break down, releasing toxic gases and by -products to the surrounding environment. These gaseous by-products endanger fish, marine life, and plants. MICROBE-LIFT/Gravel & Substrate Cleaner biologically degrades bottom organic sludge and muck with minimal disturbance, reducing or eliminating the potential harmful gaseous compounds, and helps to clarify your aquarium water at the same time. MICROBE-LIFT/Gravel & Substrate Cleaner contains natural cellulosic matter, select biological accelerators and special microbes proven effective in aquarium sludge reduction. MICROBE-LIFT/Gravel & Substrate Cleaner will also help to clarify dirty aquarium water. Recommended for use with all MICROBE-LIFT bacteria and enzyme products. MICROBE-LIFT/Gravel & Substrate Cleaner will discolor your aquarium water for 48-96 hours after application. This product is black in color and may tint your aquarium water slightly. Do not be concerned. The active ingredient is a natural product and will help clarify the water as well as digest organics in the aquarium.

    An Aqueous NANO Reef Buffer System & an Ionically Balanced Combination of Necessary Trace Elements in One Simple System!

    Automatically Sets pH to 8.2 - 8.3 MICROBE-LIFT/Nano Complete is ionically balanced with trace elements for Nano Reef systems and it will create a buffered system as well. A pH of 8.0 to 8.3 and an alkalinity of 2.9 to 4.0 meq/L. (8 to 11 dKH) is necessary for salt water and reef aquariums (fish only marine aquariums need to maintain 3.5 to 5.5 meq/L. or 10 to 14 dKH) and calcium levels should be at 400 to 450 ppm. Test calcium and alkalinity levels and adjust to your individual system. Do not add more than 0.5 mL per gallon per 12 hour period. Add calcium and this product for optimal results. If magnesium is low use MICROBE-LIFT/Magnesium Supplement. Regular water changes are recommended. You should use the MICROBE-LIFT line of reef products to simultaneously replace any minerals that are low. NANO-Reef tanks (under 20 gals.) and PICO-Reef tanks (under 5 gals) are very popular due to their lower initial cost set up. However, the smaller the tank, the more rapidly water conditions may deteriorate. Smaller tanks are less forgiving than tanks holding larger volumes of water. Optimum water conditions are a necessity for good mini-reef systems. Where possible start with R/O water. If tap water is used be sure to condition the water with MICROBE-LIFT/XTreme or MICROBE-LIFT/Dechlorinator +. Routine water changes are a necessity in reef tanks. Calcium and Alkalinity are an important part of the reef system.
