B-Ionic Transition Elements
B-Ionic Transition Elements is the latest product by ESV, formulated by Bob Stark in collaboration with Joe Yaiullo. B-Ionic TE provides daily replenishment of the transition elements iron, manganese, and zinc. These elements can rapidly deplete in reef aquaria, due to biological and abiological processes. In addition, B-Ionic TE may potentially mitigate the release of hydrogen sulfide within the aquarium, and enhance the removal of soluble phosphates. B-Ionic® Transition Elements can be used with and may enhance various forms of organic carbon dosing. Also, enhanced coral coloration, better polyp extension, and enhanced macroalgae growth have been observed with the use of B-Ionic TE. This product has been formulated to prevent accumulation of the transition elements it provides. Try our B-Ionic Transition Elements PLUS+, which combines carbon dosing with the benefits of this product.
