Details: Strontium plays an important role by accelerating coral and
calcareous algae growth.
NSW contains approx. 7 – 9 mg/L strontium.
Since the growth of corals and calcareous algae goes hand
in hand with strontium and calcium depletion, depletion of
calcium usually means depletion of strontium as well.

It is advisable to maintain a strontium concentration between
5 and 20 mg/L.

Strontium measurement is a necessity but is unfortunately
a relatively difficult test. Perhaps in forthcoming years this
will change when newer and easier methods for strontium
measurement will become available.

It therefore is a test, which many hobbyists will not conduct
frequent enough.

For that particular reason strontium additives should be
designed in such a way that a too low or a too high strontium
concentration is avoided. With the Salifert Natural-Strontium additive we
have reached this aim. When used in combination with our
Coral Calcium additive according to the instructions then the
need for strontium measurement is greatly reduced and would have
to be performed only once every few months. Furthermore NSW
contains strontium associated with sulfate. This form
lacks the toxicity, the commonly used, strontium chloride has.
We therefore use predominantly strontium sulfate together with
some other ingredients to avoid the occurrence of an ionic imbalance.
It also makes it more effective and less toxic than strontium chloride.

The Salifert strontium test kit detects both ionically free and
moderately complexed strontium. Salifert was the first to
introduce a strontium test kit.

Approx. 25 tests per kit. Measures in approx. 5 ppm increments
