Background:

Continued improvements in techniques, and advancements in aquarium technology, have made the successful maintenance and propagation of more and more corals in the reef aquarium a reality, and have necessitated the development of some type of effective dosing system to deliver elements, such as calcium and carbonates, which are vital to the well-being of many of these reef-building organisms. In the early 1970s, a breakthrough in this area was made by German aquarist, Peter Wilkens, who advocated the use of calcium carbonate water in the aquarium. In this method, a saturated calcium hydroxide solution was “fed” into the aquarium, drop by drop, via a thin tube, but, this technique also caused a significant rise in pH.In 1994, Ernst Pawlowsky, of Germany, introduced a new method of calcium supplementation, which soon became quite popular in the United States — Calcium part A and Calcium part B. At the same time, Rolf Hebbinghaus, of Germany, produced the calcium reactor, and Hans-Werner Balling developed the “Balling Method” of calcium supplementation.By 1996, continued improvements in the Balling Method made it the mothod of choice for dosing reef aquariums with essential elements, such as calcium, magnesium, among others, and maintaing adequate carbonate hardness (alkalinity). When used correctly, all levels of major elements remain constant, with calcium levels at 420 mg/l, magnesium at about 1300 mg/l and carbonate alkalinity at 7 dKH.According to numerous German aquarists who have been using the Balling Method (see Steps 1-5 below), although this methodology has accounted for a doubling is size of small-polyped stony (SPS) corals in their aquariums within about 100 days, coloration has been compromised unless the following trace elements are also add (Step 6): Iodine, iron, strontium and NF Metal. What follows is a comprehensive, step by step, description of the ECO Balling Method for supplement calcium, magnesium and other minerals and trace elements, and maintaing carbonate alkalinity at natural seawater levels.
