CORE7 Base Elements dosing supplements for use with the TRITON Method of reef keeping.
CORE7 is a next generation of dosing solutions designed to supplement and maintain near natural sea water parameters for reef aquaria using the TRITON Method of reefkeeping. CORE7 improves on the original Base Elements range of supplements in several key ways. CORE7 is revolutionary because they are the most concentrated solutions ever developed, no other supplementation method in the world comes close in terms of value and stability. CORE7 solutions have been re-formulated to be even more stable and include a raised pH to promote coral growth.
Years of scientific research combined with observations drawn from tens of thousands of ICP aquarium seawater tests lead to the development of these unique elemental supplements. Used in accordance with the TRITON Method these solutions deliver the natural balance of macro and trace elements essential to a successful reef aquarium while preventing ionic imbalance and eliminating the need to carry out routine water changes.
CORE7 is now available in a Bulk Edition offering substantial savings to you the customer. Each kit contains enough product to make up 4 litres of each solution.

Triton Core7 Base Elements is an ionically balanced, super concentrated dosing system for reef aquariums of all kinds and have been specifically developed for the Triton Method of reefing. The Triton Method utilizes accurate ICP-OES testing to analyze what elements are in your tank and their concentrations along with specific filtration requirements like sumps and large refugium. With ICP-OES testing Triton has been able to monitor what elements are consumed during coral growth and metabolic functions. Taking that data they have developed their ultra-pure line of Core7 Base Elements, that include all major and minor trace elements that your corals are going to need.
Dosing Core7 Base Elements
We highly suggest using Triton ICP-OES testing to establish a baseline, and for dosing recommendations. Prior to dosing your aquarium's alkalinity should be adjusted to 8 dKH. As a baseline starting dose, Triton recommends 2mL of each component every day per 26 gallons of system water volume. Alkalinity testing should be done on a daily basis for the first couple weeks so that consumption can be adjusted for accordingly. It is recommended not to exceed 2mL per 26 gallons of system water volume per dose, and if more solution is required then multiple doses per day can be administered.
- Core7 Base Elements uses a 1:1 ratio - for every 1mL of Part 1 you use, you should be using 1mL of Part 2, Part 3A, & Part 3B.
- Periodic testing with Triton Labs is highly encouraged to help fine tune your water chemistry.
- Dosing in smaller tanks can be done by diluting each bottle with RO/DI water but we do recommend using the standard Base Elements Additives since they are diluted and easier to distribute to smaller aquariums.
Use with Dosing Pumps
It is highly recommended to use an accurate dosing pump. Due to the super concentrated nature of the elements, it is required to dose into a high flow area of the sump ideally right before the refugium or display tank with a minimum of 5-minute intervals between solutions being dosed. It is also recommended to not dose more than 2mL per 26 gallons of water volume in a single dose.
