Photosynthesis is carried out within cell bodies referred to as Chloroplasts. Iron is utilized in the electron transport chain within the chloroplasts, and is subsequently required by photosynthetic organisms for continued functioning and health. In marine aquariums, these organisms include macroalgae, marsh grasses and mangroves, encrusting calcareous algae, and the symbiotic zooxanthellae and zoochlorellae that reside within the tissues of hermatypic corals, clams, and their allies. The availability of iron becomes a limiting factor in the rate of photosynthesis, and hence the rate of nutrient uptake and growth, for these organisms. At the same time as each aquarium will require different concentrations of iron, a good place to begin is within a range of 0. 05 – 0. 10 ppm; this will typically provide sufficient iron for the photosynthetic organisms present in the system. Some aquaria may require, or get pleasure from, iron concentrations greater than 0. 10 ppm, on the other hand greatly exceeding this level is not recommended. The best method of determining the optimal iron concentration for an aquarium is to begin at 0. 05 ppm and then gradually (i. e. over a period of weeks) increase the concentration as warranted by the appearance of the aquarium. Phosphate is a substance that encourages growth of algae under the environmental conditions commonly found in marine aquaria, and overdosing iron in the presence of excessive phosphate may result in algal proliferation; because of this, the concentration of phosphate in a marine aquarium must be maintained as close to immeasurable as conceivable. The rate at which iron is extracted from the water is decided by the stocking density of photosynthetic organisms, type of lighting, and other conditions. Once the rate of iron uptake in the aquarium has been decided, the proper dosing rate of this product can be easily calculated.
