Hello, I’m trying to be as precise about this as possible, I dose Seachem Reef Fusion 1 & 2 for my two-part dosing. I’d like to dose Tropic Marin’s A- and K+ trace elements but I really don’t know the ratio I should be dosing them. I have a 64oz container for each of my Alkalinity and Calcium supplements. How much trace element should I be adding to equal 64oz of total supplement? Thank you!

Seachem Reef Fusion already adds some trace elements.

It might be better to switch to a different alk product if you want to use Tropic marin trace elements.

Thank you Randy! When you say they add “some” trace elements, do they add the same ones Tropic Marin replaces or are they missing any? The reason I ask is I’ll happily switch 2 part brands if I’m benefiting at all from the Tropic Marin. If Reef Fusion is covering them all then there’s really no point in switching. Thank you again!
