Generell Spørsmål

Hvilke belysning anbefaler du for koraller?

Vi anbefaler å kjøre rundt en 10-12 timers total lysplan for koraller.
3 timer blått lys, 4 timer hvitt og blått midt i timeplanen, og 3 timer mer blått på slutten er en generell metode.

Det kan være gunstig å få intensiteten til å falme inn og ut av timeplanen hvis du har en kontroller som simulerer soloppgang/solnedgang. For mye lys med en gang kan bleke koraller, så til du vet hvordan koraller reagerer på lyssystemet ditt, er det best å starte med en kort tidsplan eller lav intensitet og gradvis rampe når du ser korallene svare.

Hva anbefaler du for et clean up crew?

En sneil per 10-20 liter og en eremittkrabbe per 30-40 liter vil bidra til å holde akvariet fri for alger.

Det kan være lurt å lete etter mer ikke aggressive eremitter (Clibanarius tricolor, Calcinus elegans) og hardere sneglearter som er mer i stand til å snu seg selv (Tectus fenestratus, Trochus sp.). Noen meksikanske turbo snegler og Conchs kan også være gode tillegg til akvariet.

Husk at eremitter kan spise sneglene da de ønsker skjellene, så det er best å ha mye flere snegler enn eremitter eller gi eremittene tomme skjell.

Hvor lenge skal jeg akklimatisere korallen min?

15 minutter er hva vi anbefaler. Tanken er å få korallen sakte justert til temperaturen og deretter få den inn i akvariet så snart som mulig. De kan allerede være stresset fra forsendelse, så en lang akklimatiseringsprosess vil bare stresse det mer.

Hvor mye sand trenger jeg?

Det er ikke alltid like lett og vite hvor mye eller hvor tykkt lag sand som er anbefalt.

Vi har laget en anbefalt tabell slik at det gjør det lettere og vite hvor mye som kreves for ditt akvarium.

Tabellen er regnet ut i fra 2,5cm sandbunn.

Oceamo Add-Ons Info

The new DUO add-ons

DUO-Ad-ons-3-Oceamo.jpg

In our analyses, we often find a nutrient deficiency, which can promote problems in the keeping of corals and unwanted cyanobacteria or dinoflagellates.

To respond to this situation, we have developed the Oceamo DUO add-ons nitrogen and phosphorus. The add-ons are packed in a practical dosing syringe and are added to the DUO supply solutions according to instructions. This results in many advantages:

  • Since DUO is dosed throughout the day, an even nutrient supply takes place. The nutrient availability is so much more constant than with occasional dosage.

  • The DUO add-ons are very productive. On average, 10 litres of DUO can be supplemented with nutrients with one packaging unit.

  • In the syringe, the nutrient solutions are packaged in a contamination-proof manner, which means that preservatives can be dispensed with.

  • DUO add-ons are easy to use,detailed instructions are included with the product

  • No extra daily care effort, automatic dosing via the basic care.


In addition, a DUO add-on with the element Barium is available.

Barium is already elevated in many reef aquariums, which is why we deliberately did not integrate this element into our basic supply DUO. Nevertheless, there are basins in which barium is below the optimal value, and a regular barium dosage (coupled to calcium) makes sense. With the DUO Add-On Barium, the basic supply DUO can be supplemented by a barium source. This add-on is also very productive (10 liters DUO).
The add-ons make DUO flexible and supplement it with the possibility of nitrogen, phosphorus or barium dosing.
And this is easily by adding it to the respective DUO canisters or bottles. Very effective and easy to use.

DUO add-ons can only be used in combination with the DUO basic service system. The product is not suitable for direct dosing or dilution with osmosis water!

Expert info:

What amounts of nutrients are dosed by DUO Add-ON P and N? In the first row you can read the daily consumption (or the daily dosage of DUO), in the first column the amount of add-ons per 1l DUO: So you can easily read which amount of phosphate or nitrogen (specified as nitrate equivalents) are dosed per day.

 

Food Trace

Often the question arises, which elements are inserted into the aquarium with popular feed. It is interesting to see if feed will cover (partially) the trace element need of the aquarium, or if feeding can lead to critical enrichment.

We not “only” use our laboratory to analyze your seawater samples, but also want to answer interesting questions, and gain new insights for our hobby.

In order to examine the (trace) elements in popular feed, we quickly dissolved the feed in concentrated acid, diluted them with ultrapure water and analyzed them by ICP-OES. We will share and discuss the results with you here

Sorten_small.png

We have selected 3 types of dry food: "garlic" pellets, spirulina flakes and "colorful" flakes, as well as four frozen food types: artemia, krill, mysis and lobster eggs.

At this point, it should be mentioned that only one sample of each feed was analyzed. In order to obtain a more holistic picture, several batches of the respective feed would have to be tested and the values averaged. However, we believe that this pilot study provides valuable information on the trace element content of the respective feed. The values of dry and frozen food are only partially comparable with each other, since frozen food contains a larger amount of moisture.

hno31_small.png
hno32_small.png

But now to the results, we look at each element, and discuss succinctly whether the reading is relevant for aquaristics.

Let's start with barium, on the left in the diagram are the three dry food types, on the right the frozen food sorts. The unit is μg (micrograms) per gram of feed. So if about 1 g of "garlic" pellet is fed in an aquarium of 100 l volume, about 2 μg barium/100 l = 0.02 μg/l barium will enter the water.

Ba.png

The barium content varies between the feed types, but it is generally very low. Even with mysis (the feed with the highest barium content) only insignificant amounts are introduced into the aquarium.

Sr.png

Strontium is also entered only in very small amounts with the feed, therefore the strontium need must be fulfilled by additional supply (by means of a supply system, e.g.: Oceamo DUO, or through specific individual doses).

Al.png

Aluminum is mainly known as a pollutant because it has no known biological function. Values above 100 μg/l can occasionally cause problems, especially effects on soft corals are being registered. In case of the examined feed types, the "colorful” flake food stands out due to its high aluminum content of 1150 μg/g. With a feeding of 1 g/100l (a fairly high amount), 11.5 μg/l of aluminum is introduced per feeding, which can definitely lead to undesired accumulation. The tested artemia have the second highest aluminum content of 111 μg/g.

Fe.png

Iron is an important trace element. All dry foods, lobster eggs, and brine shrimp bring in significant (but by no means critical) amounts of iron, which is why feeding will probably cover the iron needs well. The examined krill and mysis contained significantly less iron.

Cu.png

​Copper, an important trace element as well (causing often problems in high concentrations) is detectable in all types of feed. In particular, the examined Lobster eggs had a high copper content. - Exclusively feeding these crayfish eggs may cause an increase in the copper content in the tank, we definitely recommend varying the feed used, in order to avoid unilateral load.Copper, an important trace element as well (causing often problems in high concentrations) is detectable in all types of feed. In particular, the examined Lobster eggs had a high copper content. - Exclusively feeding these crayfish eggs may cause an increase in the copper content in the tank, we definitely recommend varying the feed used, in order to avoid unilateral load.

Zn.png

The zinc content in dry food is significantly higher than in frozen food (except spirulina), and considerable amounts are introduced (mainly from pellets). However, toxic accumulation is extremely unlikely.

V.png

Vanadium is detectable only in minimal amounts in the analyzed feed, the feeding does not contribute significantly to the vanadium supply of an aquarium.

Ni.png
Mo.png
Cr.png

Likewise, nickel, molybdenum and chromium. Although these elements are detectable in most types of food, a significant admission into the aquarium does not occur.

Mn.png

​The important trace element manganese is entered by all feed types, whereby krill contains the least manganese. High manganese levels are found in pellet and flake food, as well as Artemia.

But not only metals are interesting in aquaristics, but also phosphorus, for example, which occurs (mostly organically bound) in all types of food. - Thus, food is also the main source of phosphate in the aquarium. It is interesting that the phosphorus content differs significantly between the types of feed studied, but see for yourself:

P.png

Striking is the very high phosphorus content in the investigated pellet feed: almost 18000 μg/g, ie 18 mg/g or even 1.8% of the feed weight. Spirulina has the lowest phosphorus content in dry food, and the frozen feed all have a similar phosphorus content.

We have also converted the phosphorus content into the potential increase in phosphate value when 1 g of each feed is fed to 100 liters of aquarium water (assuming that all phosphorus ends up as phosphate in the water. In reality, part of the phosphorus is also used by the fish, and therefore contributes nothing to the phosphate content in the water, the data should therefore be considered as an approximation):

PO4.png

If 1 g of the pellet feed is fed per 100 l of water volume, theoretically the phosphate value can rise to just under 0.6 mg/l. The other types of food also provide a significant intake of phosphate (which is also needed as an important nutrient for the aquarium). If you have problems with high phosphate levels, you should avoid feeding pellets. (Even with high phosphate levels, it is important to ensure adequate feeding of the fish! - Spirulina, for example, contributes significantly lower amount of phosphate).

Reactor Media Under The ICP-OES Magnifying glass

Reactor media such as activated carbon, zeolite or phosphate adsorber are often used in reef aquariums. We are interested in what elements and in which quantities of these reactor media are released into the water, and whether frequently stated statements such as "phosphate adsorbers give barium to the water" are actually applicable.

For this purpose, we swirled 2 different zeolites, one activated carbon and two commercially available iron-based phosphate adsorbents (GFOs) in standardized seawater for 72 hours, then filtered the samples, and then analyzed using ICP-OES. So we can determine which elements are released by the media, or even taken from the water.

This knowledge helps us to better interpret your seawater analysis, and to give targeted solutions. Of course we want to share interesting results of this "mini-study" with you.

medien.jpg

At this point it should be mentioned that in each case only one sample of the respective media was analyzed. Of course, there may be variations between different batches and manufacturers of reactor media. This article serves to show what *can* be released by the media to the water. We plan to expand the lineup in the future, explore more media, and stay abreast of results.   

But now to the results, let's start with barium.

Like calcium and strontium, barium is an alkaline-earth metal. Therefore, barium is incorporated in the skeleton of stony corals in the same way as these two elements are, or it is deposited as carbonate. Barium occurs in natural seawater at a concentration of about 7-15 μg/l. In aquariums, the measured concentration is often much higher, usually phosphate adsorbers are believed to be the main source of barium.

The zeolites were the main barium source in the media we examined. With an used amount of 1 kg per 1000 l  (1 g/l), the zeolite increased the barium content by 41 and 82 μg / l, respectively.  This already shows that there are large differences between the zeolites. - We are looking forward to testing more zeolites in our lab

The investigated activated carbon does not introduce any appreciable amount of barium. Although phosphate adsorber 1 released barium to the water, it is significantly lower than the investigated zeolites, while phosphate adsorber 2 adsorbs barium, thus even reducing the barium concentration. 

Now to another element, which is in a topic of  reef aquariums again and again, the silicon. Silicon is not necessarily problematic in the reef aquarium (but even important for skeletons for sponges), but the growth of troublesome diatoms can be promoted by high silicon concentrations.

As a source of silicon, the starting water is assumed in most cases, since silicon (or silicates / silica) in tap water often occurs in very high concentrations, and is not completely removed by reverse osmosis systems. -  For this reason, in addition ion exchange resins are used to remove the residues of silicon from the starting water. But is the source water the only source of silicon?

According to our measurements by no means, because the examined activated carbon, with a use quantity of 1 g / l lead to a silicon increase of over 800 μg/l.  The investigated zeolites, as well as phosphate adsorber 1 lead to a silicon entry into the aquarium water. Phosphate adsorber 2 slightly reduced the silicon concentration.  These results are quite surprising for us, and we use them as an opportunity to examine more activated carbons.

At this point we would like to emphasize again that the results do not mean that all activated carbons release large amounts of silicon to the water - it is only a random sample! 

What advice can be derived from these results?

We recommend to soak the reactor media before use, and to rinse thoroughly with RO water as this can significantly reduce the input of silicon and / or presumably barium.
