Become a scientist, work with C:N:P

Every living being consists of cells. Cells are made up of proteins, fats and DNA. The building blocks carbon (C), nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) are needed to form these structures.

CNP

The ratio in which carbon (C), nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) are required for growth is called the C:N:P ratio. It is specific for the different living beings, but the C:N:P ratios of the different living beings hardly differ from each other.
The best known C:N:P ratio is that of phytoplankton (Redfield ratio). It indicates that phytoplankton is composed of 106 parts carbon, 16 parts nitrogen and 1 part phosphorus. Thus, phytoplankton needs 106 parts carbon, 16 parts nitrogen and 1 part phosphorus to grow optimally.

If only one of these building blocks is missing, the reef inhabitants can no longer grow and nitrate and/or phosphate accumulate in the water. The solution: Professional nutrient management with Nutrition C, N and P.

.

Nutrient managment

Through the right use of Nutrition C, N and P you promote the growth, vitality and coloration of your corals. At the same time you support the development of a healthy ecosystem with a broad biodiversity, in which algae and cyanobacteria find it difficult to establish themselves.
