Potassium is a very important chemical in biochemistry and cell biology. It is a major element in natural seawater with a similar concentration to Calcium, (levels of around 380-410 mg/lt).
If in a standard aquarium, it rarely becomes a limiting element. In an aquarium where zeolite-based filtration methods are used, its concentration often can become too low. In order to properly dose this element it is necessary to first test your potassium levels. To test properly we suggest the use of the Elos Aqua Test Potassium.
ELOS America is the USA branch of a time-honored tradition. ELOS has been in business in Europe for over 25 years, and is recognized as one of the most innovative leaders in the aquarium industry. In 1997, ELOS was the first to discover that in closed systems, some species of corals (mainly SPS) significantly benefit (better colors and more rapid growth) from a reduced addition of organic additives (dissolved organic material), but only when compensated by a selective addition of high quality nourishment. Based on our groundbreaking and innovative research, ELOS introduced to the market a “Trio” of products to feed our corals – Omega (Amino Acids), SvC (planktonic Coral Food) and Pro-Skimmer (Carbonate Source).
ELOS was also the very first company to produce LED lights for the aquarium, the first to produce a rimless tank, the first to use probiotics in our foods, and numerous other firsts. ELOS is committed to providing high quality products to the aquarium industry and customers quickly recognize our dedication to not only advancing the hobby through research and innovation, but also our dedication to elegant simplicity in design and use. With the addition of a dedicated staff and warehouse in the USA, we are renewing our commitment to provide our customers with the best possible solutions and products available.
