Triton Infusion is an exciting new trace element additive from the company that has put big emphasis on real, analytical chemistry of reef aquarium water. Proper temperature management, lighting quality and water flow speed are all important parts of keeping a healthy reef tank, but nothing good happens without really nailing down what our corals are living in.
Once you’ve mastered the fundamentals of temperature, salinity and pH, and conquered the basics of calcium, magnesium and carbonate mineral replenishment, trace elements should be next on the reefer’s lesson plan. The broad suite of trace elements found in natural seawater encompass nearly the entire periodic table, not all of which are biologically important, but many are crucial for the health and growth of our corals.
Users of the Core7 reef supplements following the Triton method already benefit from the full suite of trace elements being mixed right into the four component parts. But if you use other techniques to replenish calcium and alkalinity in a reef tank such as kalkwaser and or calcium reactors, the new Triton Infusion additive will help you fill that elemental gap.
Triton Infusion contains all traces and other beneficial substances, and their chelators, to keep them biologically available including Iodine, Manganese, Vanadium, zinc, and many more. If you have a diverse and heavily populated coral reef tank but you’ve never used any broad trace element additive, you’ll be amazed how quickly certain elements get used up and the immediate effects of adding even some trace elements can have.
