Reef Tank Service Explained

Unlike other aquarium type services, reef aquariums not only need nitrates removed, but they also require the trace elements replenished.  Preforming a 10 percent water change every 2 weeks helps keep parameters where they need to be, in order to keep the corals growing and healthy.

Saltwater, or Fish Only With Live Rock. (FOWLR) Don’t need servicing every 2 weeks like a reef tank, but certain situation may promote a more frequent cleaning if biomass is too much for the size of the aquarium. 

Servicing a reef tank every 2 weeks serves several purposes. 

  • It allows the Aquatics Specialist to make better observations and have a better understanding of the system.
  • Replacing trace element through water changes, or maintaining either a 2 part dosing setup, or calcium reactor.
    • Reef aquarium maintenance may also be recommended or suggested based on the types of corals kept.


Depending on the types of corals kept, or how many. A reef aquarium may need additional trace element supplements.  Mainly that of calcium and alkalinity. 

The most common ways to replace these elements is either a 2 part dosing, or calcium reactor. While 2 part dosing is easier,. The calcium reactor is very particular with it’s setup.
