B-Ionic Transition Elements PLUS+ is the latest product by ESV, formulated by Bob Stark in collaboration with Joe Yaiullo. B-Ionic TE Plus+ changes the nutrient dynamics of reef aquarium without the use of specialized chemical media. It provides a conservative level of organic carbon, synergistically combined with trace elements to maximize heterotrophic bacteria uptake of nitrate and phosphate. B-Ionic TE Plus+ can also provide many potential benefits such as enhanced production of marine snow, and mitigation of any hydrogen sulfide release within the aquarium. Also, also enhanced coral coloration, polyp extension, macro algae growth, and increased water clarity have been observed with the use of B-Ionic TE Plus+. This product has been formulated to prevent accumulation of the transition elements it provides.
Directions: If Nitrate concentration is less than 5ppm, or falls below 5ppm while using B-Ionic TE Plus+, use B-Ionic TE instead. For the first week, dose 1ml/40 gallons (1 drop per 2 gallons) daily. After first week, increased dose to 1ml/ 20 gallons (1 drop per gallon) daily. When adding full dose at once, add within the first few hours of photoperiod. When using dosing pump, add entire dose only when aquarium lights are on. Do not use B-Ionic TE Plus+ when using other forms of organic carbon dosing, use our B-Ionic Transition Elements instead.
