The Continuum Aquatics AquaBlade-P Acrylic Safe Replacement Blade was created by testing countless different types of plastics and plastic blends. The results are a special self lubricating plastic that is softer than acrylic, so it will not scratch acrylic*.
100% Backwards compatible with previous units. AquaBlade scraper fits the old blades, AquaBlade blades fit the old scraper.
*Acrylic safe blade is necessarily soft and can therefore pick up sand or small bits of gravel if shoved too hard down into the substrate. User should check plastic blade surface periodically by running a finger or thumbnail across the surface. Some aquariums are made from low grade imported acrylic that is extremely soft and of very poor quality that can be easily scratched. User must exercise proper judgement in use and should test blade in an inconspicuous area prior to use to insure compatibility.

Continuum Aquatics Reef Basis Magnesium is a high quality, ionically balanced solution of hydrated magnesium salts designed to safely raise the magnesium level in marine aquariums, providing essential magnesium for support of aragonite formation in corals, assisting in regulation of calcium and alkalinity levels and for other desirable functions. It contains no acetate, gluconates, polygluconates or other unnecessary organics to pollute your aquarium. It is phosphate and nitrate free.
Continuum Aquatics Reef Basis Magnesium sizes: 250mL, 500mL, 2L.
Use in aquarium keeping:
Proper control of magnesium level is imperative for the health and growth of corals as well as maintenance of calcium and buffer levels. Some sea salt mixes are low in magnesium. Continuum recommends that you maintain a magnesium level of between 1,250 and 1,350 mg/L (ppm) for normal reef keeping. This product is also suitable for use by hobbyists who want to raise the magnesium level up to the range of 1,500 to 1,800 mg/L (ppm) for special uses. If you raise the magnesium level that high, be sure to closely monitor the condition of corals and other animals to make sure that they remain healthy and vibrant. Should negative signs such as corals refusing to open, poor coloration etc. be seen, discontinue use and allow the level to decrease until the animals look healthy again.
Directions and protocol:
Shake well prior to use. Add 1 capful (5 ml) per 25 US-gallons (100 L) of marine aquarium water 3 to 4 times per week. For best results, measure the magnesium concentration and add as required to maintain the concentration between 1,250 and 1,350 mg/L (ppm).
Dosing through use of a drip system is a superior method of addition. Do not mix with buffers or alkalinity supplements prior to addition. You may mix it with strontium, calcium, and many other supplements. See our website for compatibility of supplements. Determine the amount of magnesium consumption during the time it takes add the entire volume of your drip system. Determine the amount of Reef‰ۢBasis Magnesium to add in milliliters by multiplying your tank capacity in gallons by the amount you want to raise it in mg/l (ppm) and by 0.0533. (Example: if you have a 50 gallon tank and you want to raise the level by 10 ppm with the entire dose, you would multiply 50 x 10 x 0.0533 which equals 26.65 ml of Reef‰ۢBasis Magnesium or about 5-1/4 capfuls).
Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption. Contains magnesium salts, if ingested drink water, call a poison control center immediately! If in eyes flush with water.
