Aquaristik Reef Supplements

SR Aquaristik Concentrated Reef Supplements

Buying concentrated reef supplements is not just about saving money, but a little bit of money in your pocket to buy corals and fish isn’t hard to take. My name is Scott Rhodes, the owner and CEO of SR Aquaristik and I have been keeping reef aquarium for over 25 years. I have worked for two major aquarium companies designing, formulating and sourcing aquarium and pond products for over 20 years. Most importantly, I found it frustrating and very expensive when going to buy supplements and treatments necessary for my aquarium. Not only are they expensive, but they often contain unnecessary ingredients not needed for optimum coral growth or healthy fish. I started working with a chemist friend who also had the same predicament. We analyzed several major commercially available water treatments and started mixing up our own. Not only did it save a substantial amount of money, but it’s simple and easy to do. SR Aquaristik has now made those concentrated raw ingredients available to you at a very reasonable price. I’m sure a few of you have bought grocery store style ingredients but unfortunately you never know exactly what you’re getting; often times they are not pure or pharmaceutical grade and may contain other ingredients dangerous to our aquarium.

SR Aquaristik is offering you pharmaceutical grade raw ingredients, formulated and tested to make sure everything is safe for your aquarium. I have been using the same ingredients that I'm offering for sale to you for the past 10 years with fantasic results.

I hope that you will give SR Aquarstik a try! And remember, if you’re not totally satisfied with our product, we will be happy to make it right. Even if it means refunding your money!

FAQ

What are the advantages of using a concentrated supplement over a traditional leading brand-name liquid supplement?

The main advantage of using a concentrated supplement is cost, although traditional leading brands are of excellent quality. They are often made with the same ingredients found in SR Aquaristik concentrated supplements. Most supplements are up to 98% water. We simply send the raw ingredients without the water, allowing our customers to mix up the same product that they would buy at a traditional retail store; saving hundreds of dollars and reducing environmental impact caused by excess packaging.

Can I use regular tap water to mix the concentrated supplements?

Although you can use de-chlorinated tap water to mix the concentrated supplements, we recommend using reverse osmosis, distilled and/or deionized water for the best results. Distilled or deionized water can be purchased at most grocery stores for less than two dollars and also includes a re-usable 1 gallon jug.

Is there a quality difference between SR Aquaristik concentrated supplements and leading brand-name liquid supplements?

Yes. SR Aquaristik concentrated supplements are made up of only pharmaceutical grade raw ingredients. These ingredients are typically better quality than ingredients used in leading brand-name liquid supplements.

I have never heard of SR Aquaristik. How do I know that I can trust the quality of the product I'm considering purchasing?

The raw ingredients used in SR Aquaristik concentrated supplements are purchased from the same source as many traditional leading brand-name supplements. We have been sourcing aquarium products for over 20 years and also guarantee satisfaction. If for any reason you're not happy with your purchase, we will fix the problem or refund your money within 30 days of your purchase.

How long does it take to mix a concentrated supplement?

Most supplements can be mixed in less than five minutes.

You have two different magnesium supplements, which one is better?

Most customers use both magnesium supplements in conjunction with each other; our best-selling magnesium supplement is magnesium chloride.

Why don't you have a recommended amount of mixed supplement that should be added to my aquarium?

Every aquarium is different. The amount and type of coral will determine how much supplement is needed. The only way of ensuring optimum results is to test aquarium water and add supplements according to the directions. You can also use our handy Reef Calculator which can be found at sraquaristik.com/calc.

What is the advantage of buying a pharmaceutical grade supplement?

When adding supplements to your aquarium, it is important to be sure of the quality and consistency of the product added. Buying pharmaceutical grade supplements ensures proper testing and guaranteed quality.

How long is the product good after it’s been mixed?

We recommend that supplements are used within four weeks of mixing. Shake before each use. The only supplement that should be used within 36 hours is Kalkwasser. Kalkwasser should always be kept in a sealed container as atmospheric CO2 will neutralize the product quickly. It is still safe to use, but not as effective.

What other items will I need in order to start mixing the concentrated supplement?

You can either buy one of the SR Aquaristik Starter Kits or you can purchase the following components easily found at any grocery store:
- 1 new clean food grade container with sealable lid
- 1 gallon of RO/DI or filtered water. If you are buying the water, you can also use the jug as your mixing container.
- Clean plastic wide-mouth funnel

What is the little bag contained within the supplements?

We include a small silica bag to prevent the supplement from becoming caked or damaged with moisture.

Do all concentrated supplements come with the measuring scoop?

Yes. All supplements that are concentrated come with a measuring scoop.

Why should I choose SR Aquaristik?

Keeping saltwater reef aquariums can be expensive. But it doesn’t have to be. Most aquarium supplements are made up of active ingredients and water; in most cases, mostly water. SR Aquaristik enables our customers to save hundreds of dollars by supplying the active ingredients and letting our customers mix their own high-quality supplements. Just mix with RO (reverse osmosis) RODI (reverse osmosis deionized) or distilled water.

Why is alkalinity and/or KH/PH so important for my reef aquarium? And what are the recommended parameters?

Alkalinity/KH is an important aspect of reef-keeping and necessary for corals to build their calcium carbonate skeletons. KH and alkalinity are also an important aspect of stabilizing pH. Alkalinity and KH can be quickly depleted when topping up aquariums with purified water.

Recommended alkalinity or KH levels are between 2.5-4 mg L or 7-11 KH

Just mix our concentrated supplement with RO (reverse osmosis) RODI (reverse osmosis deionized) or distilled water.

Why is Calcium so important for my reef aquarium? And what are the recommended parameters?

Calcium is very important in a reef aquarium. Corals use it to create calcium carbonate skeletons. Calcium supplementation is also important for coralline algae, snails, hard tube worms and clams and also ensures the growth of purple, pink, and green calcareous algae. If calcium levels are not maintained at adequate levels, such organisms become stressed and eventually die.

Recommended Calcium levels are between 380-450 PPM. Most reef aquariums use between 1ml - 5ml of mixed solution per day, depending on demand.

Why would I use Kalkwasser in my reef aquarium?

Kalkwasser has been used in Europe for decades and was one of the first and most effective ways of adding calcium to reef aquariums.

Why is magnesium an important element to add to my reef aquarium? And what are the recommended levels?

Magnesium is the third most abundant ion found in the ocean. Magnesium is necessary for proper calcification and for optimum coral growth. Magnesium levels are important because it stabilizes carbonate and allows it to be present in much higher concentrations and prevents precipitation of calcium and alkalinity/KH.

Recommended magnesium levels are between 1,250 and 1,350 ppm. When not testing, add (10 ml) per 250 gallons weekly.
