THE FUTURE HAS STARTED
With the ARCOS II ICP-OES machine, we have chosen an analyser of the highest in its class. It is characterised by its high precision and is used wherever high demands on element analysis are required. So it is not surprising that with the ARCOS II we can detect trace elements in concentrations to less than 1 µg/l (0.001mg/l).
THIS IS YOUR WAY…
… to being totally aware and in control of what is happening with your aquariums water chemistry. With the help of our ICP-OES the daily challenges of meeting the needs of your reef aquarium inhabitants are now without any doubt completely possible. You are able to see the daily consumption of every essential mayor and minor element and able to dose accordingly to keep at the optimum levels. Also we are able to identify, using the analysis, sources of pollution that could be the cause of many problems and so can optimise your aquarium system to even better results, and detect potential problems to avoid them escalating.
WE MEASURE FOR YOU:
Salinity, KH value and Nitrate
As all readings are affected by salinity this gives you balanced accurate readings with complete certainty on your results. With all mayor and minor elements with balanced reference values to the results, leaves you with no doubts of your dosing regime.
Major elements: chloride, sodium, sulphur, magnesium, calcium, potassium, bromine, strontium, boron and fluoride
Minor elements: aluminium, antimony, arsenic, barium, beryllium, bismuth, cadmium, chromium, cobalt, copper, iron, iodine, lead, lanthanium, lithium, manganese, mercury, molybdenum, nickel, phosphorus, selenium, silicon, silver, thallium, tin, titanium, tungsten, vanadium and zinc
Our free online Lab software helps you in interpreting the results.
When mounting frags onto rocks underwater:
1. Place a dab of glue on the base of the frag.
2. Dip the frag quickly into the water to create a glue bubble.
3. Remove the frag from the water and use a toothpick to pop and stir the glue bubble.
4. Place the frag into the aquarium pushing the stirred glue bubble against the live rock.
5. Hold the coral in place against the live rock for 30-40 seconds.
