About ICP Analysis for Saltwater Aquariums
How it Works
ICP stands for Inductive Couple Plasma. Saltwater is injected into a plasma chamber that is approximately 10,000 degrees Celsius. This extreme temperature breaks apart everything in the sample into the basic elements. Every element is then released at a specific wavelength and the machine measures the concentration of the element by how much energy is released at that specific wavelength.
Why is ICP testing for your water so important?
Research has shown time after time that certain trace elements are necessary for the growth, reproduction and color of many corals. Knowing exactly what is in your aquarium water can help you troubleshoot issues, see what is missing from the water that may be inhibiting coral growth and coloration, or simply help you make educated adjustments to give your corals the best possible environment to thrive.
