Red Sea Potassium+ Trace Coral Color B 500ml







  • Description

Trace Colours B Supplement is a part of the complete range of complementary major, minor and trace element complexes which together provide the needs of corals.


Trace Colours B Supplement contains Potassium and Boron that are associated with many biological processes, one of the being the production of the red pigments in the soft tissue of corals.


Potassium plays an essential role in the transportation of coral nutrients within the soft tissue (including the nutrients provided by the zooxanthellae). Potassium and boron significantly affect the alkalinity of a coral’s soft tissue and the formation of aragonite in its skeleton. Potassium is related to the red chromo-proteins.


To ensure coral health, the ppm level of these elements must be maintained within a narrow band and therefore should only be dosed according to a measured requirement of the aquarium. For optimal results, dose according to a measured uptake of Iodine using an Iodine test kit. An easier alternative us to dose in proportion to the dosing of Red Sea's Reef Foundation A (Calcium and Strontium) supplement.


For best results in displaying coral colours, use Red Sea's N03: P04-X
