Magnesium Tube

Magnesium Tube

Magnesium is not only taken up by some organisms (e.g. algae crusts, gorgonia), it plays an important role for the lime household. If the magnesium concentration in sea water falls clearly under 1300 mg/l, it easily happens that calcium precipitates e.g. as calcium carbonate and is not dissolved in the water any longer. Calcium concentration and carbonate hardness are falling rapidly; often so fast that the chalk reactor does not produce enough calcium and carbonate hardness to hold the concentrations of the two ions. Magnesium plays an important role as a precipitation inhibitor in the water chemistry of the sea aquariums. Only if sufficient magnesium is present as ion in the water - optimum at 1350 mg/l - calcium can also be in solution, too - (approx. 400 mg/l).

It is useful to install the Magnesium Tube at the outlet of a chalk reactor. The remaining CO2 in that water dissolves the filter material and release magnesium ions into the aquarium. Some sizes of the Turbo Chalk Reactor are available with an integrated Magnesium Tube.

The Magnesium Tube is installed after the Turbo Chalk Reactor or after a traditional Lime Reactor. The tube is available in two versions: inside a filter sump or for wall installation.

For encreasing the power in combination with a Turbo Chalk Reactor it is possible to reduce the neutralization efficiency of the reactor to get more free CO2 into the Magnesium Tube.
