FAQ: Can I use Seachem Reef Plus™ together with _______?

Another Company's product

There are a lot of aquarium products on the market, and while most of them will work perfectly fine together in the aquarium, some will not.  We can't 100% guarantee any product that's not our own, but here's a few quick rules:

  1. Avoid using products that overlap in function.  Either one works and so it's the one you should be using, both work and so it's a waste to use them both, or neither work and you should be looking for a third, better product.  In the case of Reef Plus™, using multiple nutrient supplements when only one is needed could result in a buildup of un-utilized nutrients in the aquarium, possibly leading to a bacteria bloom.
  2. Research the products you use carefully.  Typically, if a product or medication is volatile enough to react with a nutrient supplement, the company will mention it on the label or website, or you can call in to check.
  3. When in doubt, wait a day.  While there should not be any interaction between Reef Plus™ and another product, leaving 24 hours in between the doses will avoid possible fish stress from rapidly changing water parameters.


Seachem® Products

It's safe to use Reef Plus™ alongside any of the other Seachem® products that are recommended for saltwater systems.  When dosing both Reef Plus™ and Reef Trace™, it is  recommended to dose the products on alternate days for optimal trace element maintenance. Using more than two trace element supplements in the aquarium is typically unnecessary.  

Here's some Seachem® products that are Saltwater Trace Element Supplements

Marine Trace™ Reef Plus™ aquavitro fuel™

As previously mentioned, it is fine to use these products together, but it is typically unnecessary to use multiple trace element supplements in the same system.
