Phosphorus in the reef aquarium is one of the most important elements in the world and plays essential roles in all forms of life.

Nucleotides, for example, which are the building blocks of the genetic material of all living organisms, consist of phosphorus compounds. In addition, energy in the form of ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate) is synthesized by the zooxanthellae in the course of photosynthesis and is thus available to the coral. Phosphorus is generally absorbed by living organisms to a large extent through the compound phosphate (PO4). Very low phosphorus availability results in reduced growth and ultimately in the death of corals and other organisms. Both the reduction and the increase of the phosphate content should be carried out gradually and very slowly in saltwater aquariums, since especially stony corals can die if changes are made too quickly.
Dosage Tip: The optimum concentration is 0.03 - 0.08 mg/l.
1 ml increases the phosphate content of 100 liters of pool volume by 0.01 mg/l.
