Using any 4-Liter (1-Gallon) container, fill the container halfway with RO/DI water and slowly add the entire contents of Core7 Base Elements 1 to the container. It is suggested to stir or mix the water while the dry powder is being added to help it dissolve faster. After the entire contents of Component 1 have been added, top the jug off with RO/DI water, give it a quick shake, and let it sit until the solution becomes fully dissolved.
Repeat the instructions above with separate containers for each component.

Triton Core7 Reef Supplements are an ionically balanced, super concentrated dosing system for reef aquariums of all kinds and have been specifically developed for tanks that are not using the entire Triton Method. Replace your current dosing regimen, calcium, or kalkwasser reactor with the simple solutions that include all necessary elements in a balanced formula.
Core7 Reef Supplements comes in two different sizes, 1000mL bottles, which is the perfect size for nano tanks, or if you are just starting the Triton Method. Then they also have the 10L kit and is ideal for larger systems and comes in large jugs.
Dosing Core7 Reef Supplements
Prior to dosing your aquarium's alkalinity should be adjusted to 8 dKH. As a baseline starting dose, Triton recommends 2mL of each component every day per 26 gallons of system water volume. Alkalinity testing should be done on a daily basis for the first couple of weeks so that consumption can be adjusted for accordingly. It is recommended not to exceed 2mL per 26 gallons of system water volume per dose, and if more solution is required then multiple doses per day can be administered.
Core7 Reef Supplements uses a 1:1 ratio - for every 1mL of Part 1 you use, you should be using 1mL of Part 2, Part 3A, & Part 3B.
We highly suggest using Triton ICP-OES testing to establish a baseline, and for dosing recommendations.
Periodic testing with Triton Labs is highly encouraged to help fine tune your water chemistry.
Use with Dosing Pumps
It is highly recommended to use an accurate dosing pump. Due to the super concentrated nature of the elements, it is required to dose into a high flow area of the sump ideally right before the refugium or display tank with a minimum of 5-minute intervals between solutions being dosed. It is also recommended to not dose more than 2mL per 26 gallons of water volume in a single dose.
