B-Ionic® Nitrate

We are proud to introduce B-Ionic® Nitrate which is a concentrated source of nitrate in the form of a highly purified calcium nitrate solution. Maintaining nitrate concentrations slightly higher than natural reef levels has been observed by many aquarists to be beneficial to coral health and coloration. This may be because higher levels of nitrate compensate for the lack of planktonic food organisms and particulate organic nitrogen available to corals in the wild. Biological assimilation and denitrification converts the nitrate added into carbonate alkalinity, so there is no accumulation of sodium or potassium, which are difficult to test for. Higher nitrate levels may also assist organic breakdown and prevent hydrogen sulfide in anoxic/anaerobic areas of rock and sand. When phosphate levels are already high, increasing food input can be problematic when trying to raise nitrate levels because food also imports phosphate. B-Ionic® Nitrate provides a solution by raising nitrate without increasing phosphate. 1ml/20 gals. of aquarium water adds 1 ppm nitrate.


  • Start by adding 1 ml per 20 gallons = 1 drop per gallon
  • Each addition will 1ppm of nitrate
  • Test nitrate every 5 days, and adjust dose accordingly until target level is reached
  • Do not increase dose by more than 1ml per 20 gallons a day within a 5 day time period
  • Nitrate levels should range between 5ppm - 10ppm
  • Warning: May cause eye irritation and is harmful if swallowed. Keep away from children!

Available in 16 fl. oz., 32 fl. oz., 1 gallon, 5 gallon
