Cobalt is a trace element present in a low concentration in oceans, varying between 0.002μg/L in north central Pacific Ocean and 0.39μg/L in Indian Ocean.
Cobalt is and integral part of vitamin B12 and plays a fundamental role in DNA & cell processes along being a nutrient for macro algae. It has been suggested that Cobalt might be a limiting factor of the bio-availability in the oceans and therefore an important trace element for the life of our animals.
It is important to check its levels through an ICP analysis and ensure adequate levels and stability by dosing a Cobalt supplement as needed.
Cobalt Zlement used in conjunction with a regular testing procedure, allows any reefer to make corrections to Cobalt levels ensuring the levels in their tank water stay within the best range for their friends.
1 ml of Cobalt Zlement increases the Cobalt concentration of 100 litres by 2 μg/l.
