Tropic Marin Bio-Calcium Original Balling Set; Parts A/B/C.
Part A Only (Calcium Chloride Dehydrate) 1 kg - $18.99
Developed by Hans-Werner Balling of Germany, the Balling Method has become a popular method for dosing reef aquariums with essential elements, such as calcium, magnesium, among others, and maintaining adequate carbonate hardness alkalinity (carbonate hardness).
When used correctly, all levels of major elements remain constant, with calcium levels at 420 mg/l, magnesium at about 1300 mg/l and carbonate alkalinity at 7 dKH.
This method is also very economical, even when compared to inferior economy dosing methods sold by popular reef suppliers online.
Here is an excellent video from the inventor of the "Balling Method"
Here also is an excellent article and video from a Veterinarian who specializes in reef care about why the Balling Method is superior to all others:
380g/ 16 scoops per 5 liters of R/O water will result in a solution concentration of 20,000 mg/L (ppm)
Each 125ml of solution added will raise calcium 12.5 ppm per 200 liters of aquarium water with a maximum recommend dosage of 25ppm per day.
Recommended aquarium calcium concentration levels of 400 - 450 ppm.
DOSING EXAMPLE FOR 27 GALLON AQUARIUM: 1/2 US cup or 4 oz of each solution raises the calcium concentration by 12.5 ppm and 1.75 degree dKH. The maximum recommended does per day is 4 oz of solution.
BEST USE for maintenance would be to test alkalinity and calcium and add the solution accordingly (A & B). For the solution made from C, this is simply added by basing how much solution of components A & B are added. For instance is 2 oz. of solutions from A & B are required to maintain alkalinity/calcium it is very safe to assume that 2 oz. of solution from C is needed as well.
