Get your aquarium reef-ready in approximately 21 days with Red Seas Marine Care Program (MCP). This step-by-step program enables you to achieve complete biological maturation including algae management. Included is a full kit of maturation supplements as well as test kits for the maturation process and ongoing monitoring. MCP provides detailed instructions for the 21-day period and is guaranteed to provide results for your reef-keeping needs within that time.
The Red Sea Marine Care test kit includes test for Ammonia, Nitrate, Nitrite, pH and Alkalinity - all of which need monitoring when establishing your fish tank and maturing your filtration system.
About the Red Sea Marine Care Programme:
The Marine Care Program (MCP) is a comprehensive, step-by-step program that enables hobbyists to achieve complete biological maturation including biological algae management. The MCP gets aquariums reef-ready to host even the most delicate (small polyp stony “SPS”) coral species in approximately 21 days.
The program includes a complete kit of maturation supplements and a full complement of accurate test kits required for the maturation process and the ongoing monitoring of key water parameters within soft coral or fish-only systems.
Most biological ‘cycling’ products only provide the bacteria that convert toxic waste products to nitrate. The MCP, however, completes the biological maturation process by establishing thriving colonies of anoxic (de-nitrifying and phosphate harboring) bacteria as well as ensuring the necessary conditions that will promote the growth of coralline algae and other micro fauna found in live rock and within a sand bed.
The program includes detailed instructions for each of the 21 days, including the quantities for each supplement and frequency of use, when to test the water and the results you should expect, when to do partial water changes and when to add various types of livestock.
MCP provides guaranteed results for hobbyists of all levels, preparing new systems for implementing Red Sea’s complete Reef Care program for easy maintenance of full reef aquariums.
