Salifert Trace Soft
By trace elements we usually mean elements that are present in natural seawater in a concentration lower than approx. 1 mg / l or ppm. Some of these elements are essential to enable many biological processes.
For example, manganese is essential for photosynthesis and many related biochemical reactions. Some organisms require iron to absorb essential nutrients.
Cobalt is essential for the formation of various coral pigments.
Zinc , like manganese, is essential for photosynthesis and is also essential for the formation of calcium carbonate by corals.
Research has shown which trace elements are exhausted and at what rate. While every aquarium is different, we’ve managed to design trace element supplements that add enough trace elements to keep corals blooming and prevent overdosing. The main difference between the use of trace elements is between hard corals and soft / leather corals and coral algae. That is why we have designed a mix of trace elements for hard corals (Trace Hard ™) and one for soft / leather corals and coral algae (Salifert Trace Soft). Both can be combined according to the estimated ratio of the aquarium inhabitants. In this way, an almost perfect formulation of trace elements for different aquariums has become available.
Some other requirements
Since adding iodine is impossible without breaking down this supplement, all forms of iodine are omitted. Our Natural Iodine ™ is recommended to complete the full range of trace elements.
