The Beginners Guide to The Triton Method

Over the last couple of years, my colleagues and I have received numerous queries to the TRITON Method of reefing. Through this Triton forum, we hope to address your concerns and introduce to you the holistic approach of reef-keeping.

I prefer to use the word 'method' over 'system' as Triton is a conscientious way of acting, based on scientific knowledge, full trace-ability and transparency for the user. 

Embarking on the Triton Method may seem daunting and even costly to the uninitiated. Yet for a newbie, this method is easily adoptable due to its easy 'practical know-how' requirements. The method intrigues even the most experienced reefers/chemists/scientists to challenge the boundaries of chemistry within this marine ecosystem and see for themselves how the Triton Method simplifies, eliminates guess-work and delivers results.

After so many years of reefing for both myself and my clients and through endless trials and errors, my team and I are now convinced by the Triton Method. Nothing will gratify me more than sharing this journey with the hobbyists through this forum. 

So what is the Triton Method?

What is the TRITON method? 

The TRITON method is a “method to develop and permanently maintain a complete reef ecosystem in an aquarium”. So what does that mean? To “develop” a complete reef ecosystem you must know what is happening with your water, and adjust your water to as near “Natural Sea Water” (NSW*) as possible. *The “NSW” set points have been chosen by Triton after many years of testing of 1000’s of water samples from around the world, some elements have been adjusted to suit the aquarium environment. To “maintain” a complete reef ecosystem you must do just that, maintain, by ensuring that your water stays at as near to the chosen set points as possible.

How do we do this? 
- Triton professional lab tests 
- Dosing of required elements
- No routine water changes 

Tank Requirements:
- Display Tank of good length/width/height ratio and flow 
- Algae-refugium with 10-20% of main tank volume
- Strong skimmer
- Full spectrum display tank lights
- 6500 algae lights
- Reliable dosing pump and dosing containers.
- Phosphate remover (if required)

Easy application right?

Being skeptical like any hobbyists of the "no water change", we did a 1 year test on a 500 litres tank. The results were extremely encouraging. We have since taken the plunge to build a 1500litres tank in our new little show room!

We welcome any reefer to drop by to have a look at our display tank from 11am to 7pm daily. Even if after hours, the tank can still be viewed from outside the showroom.
302 SIMS AVE #01-07.

After reefing for so many years, I found myself excited and learning like a Newbie again! With no water change, I spent MORE TIME on the tank, staring and looking, looking and staring... "I think today's polyp extension is 0.001mm longer than yesterday!"
It seems lesser work doesn't mean you will spend less time with your tank.

For this Triton forum, we welcome all questions pertaining to the chemistry of your marine tank/s and how the Triton method addresses such issues.

Even though our showroom tank is at it's infancy stage, we are updating the progress and looking forward to sharing this journey with all the reefers!

Hi,

Core7 Triton Method makes use of macro algae in the refugium for nutrient export.

Core7 Other Method is for users who does not have a refugium. In this case, the user has to handle the nutrient export via bio-pellet, Po4 media or carbon dosing.

 

Cheers,

Aquarium Iwarna
