This calculator should help you to find the individual start dosage of ATI Nutrition for your aquarium. Depending on the nutrient requirements of the aquarium, you can make your own adjustments.
Never discontinue the dosing of the ATI Nutrition abruptly. Otherwise, you remove the nutritional basis of your corals, sponges and bacteria. Adjust dosage slowly, max. in 20% steps.
ATI Nutrition is
is the nutrition of the corals, sponges and micro organisms in your reef aquarium. This is especially important when the nutrient levels (NO3 and PO4) in the aquarium are low and plankton is absent.
ATI Nutrition should not be used
for the purposeful increase of the nutrient values. Only if the Nutritions are overdosed it comes to an increase of the nutrient values.
The biology in your aquarium
will develop much more positively through the dosage of ATI Nutrition C, N and P and the reef aquarium will noticeably stabilize.
With the diversity of organisms the nutrient requirement of the reef aquarium increases, whereby the nutrient values can be lowered. The dosage of ATI Nutrition prevents nutrient limitations.
Therefore, adjust the dosage of the nutritions regularly with this calculator.
In case of overdose,
the nutrient values increase in your reef aquarium. This is not the goal of the dosage!
In the case of algae problems,
ATI Nutrition should only be dosed if at the same time measures are taken against the algae (ie clean up crew, algae eaters etc) are taken, and corals are in the aquarium.
