Frequently Asked Questions: ATI Elements

ATI Elements are a dosing line that gives you fine-tuned control over all trace elements within your reef tank. Trace elements play a significant role in overall coral health and growth, which is why keeping them in the proper range is important.

ATI elements allow you to individually raise and accentuate each of the most essential trace elements. Rather than trying to raise all trace elements holistically, you can dial in on the levels of a specific element.

Trace elements are the combination of elements that make up less than 1% of the aquarium water, but they are essential to coral health and growth. Most dosing systems don’t account for trace elements, and the only way to replenish them without dosing a trace elements-specific additive is to perform a water change. In addition to aiding in health and growth, many trace elements also play a prominent role in coral color.

You do not need to have all of the ATI Elements. Most reefers pick and choose the ATI Elements they purchased based on their individual testing results.

The only way to know precisely when you need to dose one of these elements is by testing them individually.

To get an idea of how much of each element to dose for your system, please consult the individual element instructions our ATI Elements PDF.
