Brightwell Aquatics CoraLazarus - High-purity Calcium Media for placement in Reactors

Brightwell Aquatics CoraLazarus - High-purity Calcium Media for placement in Reactors

• High-purity natural mineral that may be employed in traditional calcium reactors, or even blended in to preexisting aquarium substratum, to gradually increase and maintain the calcium concentration and alkalinity in marine aquaria.
• Strong source of calcium, the most abundant cation by percent mass in aragonite, the mineral secreted by reefbuilding organisms to form skeletal material.
• Through dissolution, provides calcium, magnesium, strontium, potassium, and carbonates. • Aids in increasing alkalinity to stabilize pH and encourage
rapid biogenic aragonite formation. • Optimal average particle size for use in media reactors and calcium reactors.
• Free of chloride and sulfate.

Technical Background
Controlled dissolution of aragonite within a reaction vessel has become one of the most effective and preferred methods of increasing and maintaining the calcium concentration, as well as the alkalinity, in reef aquaria with high-rates of calcification. In particular, high-energy reef systems dominated by small-polyp stony corals, as well as those with heavy coralline algae growth, can benefit from this method, the results being increased growth rates (relative to many other approaches) when all other physical and chemical requirements are met. Additionally, this method of calcium/alkalinity supplementation is free of chloride, which can become elevated in aquaria utilizing chloride-based calcium supplements if regular partial water chang es are not performed. By weight, CoraLazarus is comprised of ~61 - 62% carbonates, ~37 - 38% calcium, ~0.75 - 0.85% strontium, ~0.1% magnesium, and <0.01% potassium; these percentages may vary between samples. It is collected in a clean environment and does not originate in bivalve-dominated reefs, the aragonite from which tends to be high in phosphate relative to aragonite formed by non-bivalves, in general. There is little magnesium in natural aragonite, and as such it is imperative that magnesium supplementation be employed in reef aquaria utilizing a calcium reactor. Failure to maintain magnesium at a minimal concentration of 1,290 ppm may result in difficulty maintaining the desired calcium concentration in the aquarium. One solution is to employ Brightwell Aquatics NeoMag (~13% magnesium by weight) in conjunction with CoraLazarus. NeoMag may also be used in secondary chambers of calcium reactors to help eliminate free CO2 that has not reacted with CoraLazarus, thereby simultaneously reducing the propensity for pH to exist at a depressed level in the aquarium and increasing the rate of media dissolution, and hence magnesium supplementation.

Instructions and Guidelines
Rinse material in freshwater or saltwater prior to initial placement in aquarium system. Employ in a calcium reactor per the manufacturer’s instructions. If employing NeoMag, refer to the instructions on the label. The rate of water flow through the reactor in conjunction with the pH of the water inside the chamber(s) will have the greatest impact on the rate of media dissolution. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions furnished with the calcium reactor to adjust the rates of water flow and CO2-injection and attain the desired concentrations of calcium and alkalinity in the effluent. Measure alkalinity, calcium, and magnesium concentrations in the aquarium two- to four-times each month to ensure that parameters are within the desired ranges, and make adjustments to reactor system as required. As the
biomass of corals and other reef-building organisms residing within an aquarium increase with time, so the biodemand of calcium, magnesium, and carbonates increases, as well; this being the case, the frequency at which CoraLazarus must be replaced will increase. Note that each reef aquarium has unique calcium requirements, and that it is possible for the calcium demand in the aquarium to exceed the rate at which this element is liberated from the CoraLazarus material. In such cases, additional calcium supplementation (such as with Brightwell Aquatics Calcion or Kalk+2) may be required to (reestablish a natural seawater calcium concentration. Another option is to employ a larger (or additional) calcium reactor to house a greater amount of CoraLazarus.

As you age your calcium needs change. You start needing more of the types of foods rich with calcium to stay strong. Recently, researchers created a new Food Pyramid for people over a certain age. It informs us that eating at least three servings of calcium-rich foods to meet the daily requirements of calcium and Vitamin D is needed for people over a certain age.

After a certain age, more calcium is needed to prevent the bone disorder called osteoporosis. This disease affects more than 28 million Americans, and 80% of that are women.

Calcium is important in keeping your bones healthy. As you age, you lose important minerals in your bones. Bones start to get thinner and break more easily. Keep your bones strong by eating calcium-rich foods, such as milk, cheese, broccoli, dried beans and peas. Orange juice is also a good source of calcium.

Vitamin D helps absorb calcium in the body. it is found in fluids and dried milk and cereal. Your body makes its own Vitamin D when your skin is exposed to sunlight.

Take a walk or sit in the sun every day for a few minutes, several times a week. This is important in the winter when there is less sunlight. By doing this you are making sure you have enough Vitamin D to absorb calcium.

Exercise is also needed for good bone health. Take a walk or ride a bike, yoga, anything that gets you moving and out of the house. Do heavy jobs around the house that you are able to do, what ever you do, just do something that keeps you up and about for as long as you are able.

By doing all of this you are able to keep your bones muscles and blood safe and calcium healthy, and are also keeping your vitamin D levels high enough to work with your calcium absorption.

yes water is very important for peoples. so we use the Best Water softener. because water softener provides soften water.
