Plus 8 ounce Silicate bottle

Fighting Dino's? Our Dino buster is comprised of our 3 blend diatom strains, Thal, Chaeto and Pheao plus a little fatty acid strains of T-iso lutea and Isochrysis galbana for extra power breaking down those nasty dinos. Plus get your silicate water in one place, if you need a customized dosage for silica levels please reach out. 

Dose 20ml per 10 gallons of aquarium water volume of Dino buster. Dosing per gallon is higher with this blend to help tackle Dino's. Recommended to turn off return pump and leave wavemakers on for 1-3 hours after dosing. 

Dosing silicate water (18%) ratio 1 ml per 30 gallons of aquarium water volume. When dosing silicates its extremely important to test silica levels in the aquarium via a test kit, Red Sea, Salifert or Hanna checkers and check ever 3-7 days. Dosing silica to your aquarium will cause a snow effect in the display. Dose in a high flow area, dilute silicate water in 300-500ml of RO/DI water before adding to your aquarium. 

Silicate water comes in 8 ounce bottles, our 4 ounce portion comes in an 8 ounce bottle and contains 4.2-4.5 ounces of silicate water, and 8 ounce bottle contains 8.5-9 ounces of silicate water. If you need a larger bottle, please reach out, 16 & 32 ounce bottles can be sent out. 

Warning:

When dosing silicate water, try to maintain a silica level of 2-4ppm, watch your alkalinity as they may spike. 

When using our silicate water the dosage recommendations are 0.8-1ml per 30 gallons to achieve a 2ppm silica level. If using a 40% water glass solution, use half the dose recommended. 

Test kits may provide false readings when dosing silicate water. Failure to dilute silicate water will cause it to bind in saltwater resulting in lower silica levels. The white snow effect is magnesium being precipitated out and will not harm fish or change your magnesium levels. 

When dosing silicate water, alkalinity uptake from corals may slow down, its important to check all your levels daily and around the same time after dosing silicate water to the aquarium. Dosing silicate water the same time of day will also help with readings. Testing alkalinity, calcium and magnesium should happen before dosing the next round of silicate water.
