Iron is a chemical element, with the element symbol Fe.
Iron is a trace element that is indispensable to life for almost all species, in animals especially for the formation of blood. Nevertheless, the iron content in salt water aquariums should be kept within certain limits. If for example an over proliferation of algae occurs, despite a low nutrient supply, the reason could be an overconcentration of iron.
Typically, iron-based phosphate adsorbers release iron into water. Over concentrated iron can be reduced by active carbon. Skimming greatly reduces the iron content of water.
The iron content in a salt water aquarium should ideally be 0.15 mg/l.
