    All right
    I start fauna marin tonight
    I got 100 g net or water volume
    I use aquaforest balling I got some left with trace element
    I will dose fauna marin balling when I finish this one

    What should be my dosing

    For reef vitality
    Coral balance
    All 3 coral element

    On the coral element they say one time a week can I dose it over a couple of day or its better all AT once ?


    Thanks for your help

    Hi,

    It would be best to follow the recommended dosages shown on the product labels and cut that amount by half for the first 2 weeks, then steadily increase the dosages every week while monitoring your corals and NO3. This will allow your tank to adjust to the products. Once you begin to see NO3 fall and coral coloration improve, you've reached the necessary dose for your tank.

    Since you will be dosing Reef Vitality and Coral Balance, please begin at 25% of the recommended dosage and add no more than 50% of the recommended amount.

    Color Elements can be dosed either every 4 days or 2x/week. Spreading these dosages throughout the week is okay.

    first start slowly and look how your tank react. Fauna recommandation is to start half dosing and after if is ok you can increase. fauna product are really concentrated and powerfull

    my recommandation
    reef vitality 1/4 of caps per week
    coral balance 2 spoons per week
    wait 4 days between reefvitality and coral balance

    RV and CB are two different products which handle nutrients in their own special way. [​IMG]

    The biopolymers found in each of these products are different and are each used for reducing nutrients and acting as food carrying material for corals. The biopolymers we use can be found in natural seawater, playing a part in the Nitrogen cycle, aimed to attract the different kinds of bacteria involved in the cycle.

    Explaining how these products do what they do can get pretty tricky as the whole process involves a system of direct and indirect consumption of nutrients and unwanted elements through the use of the existing bacteria and coral.


    Here's the gist of how these biopolymers play a role nutrient reduction and coral feeding:

    When you add RV and CB to the tank, the biopolymers in each product begin to attract the various strains of bacteria found in your reef. Shortly after the product is added, the bacteria begins to make an attempt to break down the biopolymer. Since these biopolymers have a long molecular structure, it cannot be easily broken down without the help of many different types of bacteria strains. As this process happens, the corals may respond by initiating a feeding response such as what one may see shortly after CB is added.

    As the biopolymer attracts the bacteria, it is also attracting nutrients. When the bacteria breaks down the biopolymer, it becomes an additional food source for the coral because it is more readily accessible for consumption and removal by the skimmer. These corals then consume both the biopolymer,bacteria, and other organics in excess thus resulting in lowered nutrients and healthier coral.

    • CB has biopolymers that aid in the reduction of unwanted trace elements and PO4. There is no GFO or other kind of media responsible for PO4 reduction in this product. It is handled in-part by the process mentioned above.
    • RV includes biopolymers which aid in the reduction of overall nutrients, especially NO3.
    With regards to trace elements, corals are consuming these at a regular rate. Any excess is then broken down by the ingredients in CB and removed by the filtration system


    for color element start half dose and look color, if ok .. continue full dose until your color look fine and them stop

    if you use full marin system
    balling light
    salt
    brb
    rv cb
    color element

    you will have a fantastic result. this method is popular in UE, this for me the best products on the market

    BRB are bacto reef balls

    BACTO REEF BALLS EFFECT:
    • Crystal clear & healthy water, nutritioncontrol and easy reduction of ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and phosphates.
    • Cleans up organic waste and unwanted detritus, raises up skimming, reduces fi lter maintenance and eliminates unwanted bacteria and algeas.
    • Easy dosing - with the unique and long lasting depot effect.
    carbon L yes but on short period
    AA, could be interesting in case Ultra Low nutriment system

    BRB are bacteria + enzymes
    below datasheet

    Bacto Reef Balls are the first fully available marine bacteria to feature nutrient control through the use of time release technology; depot controlled nutrient control.

    High Efficiency Nutrient Control
    BACTO REEF BALLS contain highly effective bacteria cultures that control nutrient levels and help avoid unsightly algae growth in saltwater aquariums. Such results are achieved through the use of our timed-release carrier material.

    Special Composition
    The unique composition of our carrier material has been specially developed for use in seawater. It allows for a steady supply of diverse bacteria cultures to be added to the aquarium. Other materials such as normal gel acts as an additional carbon source and thus dissolves faster and makes controlled delivery impossible.

    Ingeniously Simplified Dosing
    Bacto Reef Balls are super easy to use. Simply place the necessary amount of Reef Balls into your filter and replace every 2 weeks when the original sphere is dissolved. Our seawater stable polymer matrix allows bacteria to be slowly added into the aquarium. A steady supply of beneficial bacteria removes the need for daily dosing and unwanted Dosage peaks.

    Natural and Reef Safe
    Bacto Reef Balls is the first bacteria-based product to feature time-release technology in a sphere. Both bacteria and carrier material are 100% reef safe and promote a healthy and natural aquarium. As soon as the bacteria is introduced into the aquarium, the bacteria begins its task and reduces nitrogens and phosphates. Our blend of bacteria has been specially developed to suit the needs of reef aquariums by providing a stable and diverse bacterial culture. Any excess bacteria becomes a food source for corals and protozoa and are skimmed by a protein skimmer.

    BACTO REEF BALLS overview:

    • Crystal clear, healthy water
    • Simplifies nutrient control: reduces nitrogen and phosphates
    • Reduces unwanted algae growth
    • Provides cost-effective and efficient means of nutrient control
    • Supports natural bacterial flora
    • Eliminates annoying bacterial plaque and detritus build-up
    • Removes organic waste products
    • Reinforces the skimming process and minimizes cleaning intervals
    • Easy-to-follow dosage schedule
    • Unique depot effect, thereby effective for weeks per dose
    DOSAGE:
    Two (2) BACTO REEF BALLS per 100 liters (26.4 US gal), replace every 2 weeks
    Begin with half the recommended dosage to assess the specific needs of your aquarium. Place Bacto Reef Balls in a high flow area of your filter. We recommend placing the spheres in a filter bag or stocking. In aquariums without a skimmer, begin with a quarter of the dosage.

    TIPS:

    • Make sure the balls are not placed near the suction of a pump
    • BACTO REEF BALLS slowly dissolve upon contact with water slowly for the next 2-4 weeks. During this time, natural bacteria, as well as a highly effective enzyme solution is introduced into the water.
    • After adding BACTO REEF BALLS, your skimmer performance may significantly increase. This is the first sign of an increased nutritional degradation. With increase or removal of BACTO REEF BALLS, you can determine the exact needs of your aquarium.
    • A general dosage can not be specified due to the individuality of aquariums and their stocking levels.
    • We recommend that you start with half the recommended dose and gradually add more BACTO REEF BALLS until you achieve your desired values. Check with regular water tests.
    STORAGE:
    BACTO REEF BALLS contain live bacteria that live in their perfectly protected gel casing and supplied. After opening, store the product in a dark and cool area.
    Consume the fractured BBACTO REEF BALLS within 6-9 months of opening.

    Thank you for taking the time to explain everything so well. Do you know if 3 fatality in Coral balance can be used periodically to reduce nutrient build up?
