CONTINUUM CORAL COLOR INTENSE MM
The Continuum advantage.
The Coral Color Intense System requires the use of 3 products simultaneously: Coral Color Intense V, H and MM. For maximum effect, it is also advantageous to Color•Basis Calcium +, Reef•Basis Magnesium and Reef•Basis KH. The System replaces crucial vitamins, minor and trace minerals lost to coral uptake, carbon filtration, and protein skimming for growth and intense coloration of live corals. This product, Coral Color Intense•MM provides the iron, boron and a plethora of the minerals required by the phytopigments that provide color in corals.
Use in aquarium keeping.
Vitamins and minerals influence the coloration and color intensity of all corals by providing essential nutrients for the chemical reactions that take place to form biochromes in living tissues. In addition to the three Coral Intense Supplements, we recommend that you also use Coral Exponential to provide needed amino acids for coral tissue growth. Continue supplementation of major minerals with liquid or dry Reef•Basis Calcium, Magnesium, Strontium, and Potassium or Reef•Sculpture 2 part or Reef•Basis Kalkwasser but discontinue iodine and trace element supplements because those will be provided by the Coral Intense System. Feed animals normally.
The hobbyist should pay close attention to the alkalinity, or KH of the system and closely monitor the calcium, magnesium and strontium levels. Continuum recommends that you maintain a calcium level of between 410 and 450 mg/L (ppm), an alkalinity level of 7.5 to 9 dKH (2.5 to 3.21 meq/L), and a magnesium level of 1275 to 1350 mg/L (ppm).
Directions and protocol.
Shake well prior to use. Add 1/2 to 1 capful (2.5 to 5 ml) per 25 US-gallons (100 L) of marine aquarium water up to 2 times per week.
