Abstract
    Trace element analysis in seawater in aquarium situations was examined by ICP-OES and ICP-MS techniques. In our traditional low-flowbed biofilter circulation seawater systems we are not losing calcium-ions, but in our invertebrate system, with a protein skimmer, however, we lose small amounts of calcium. The efficiency of protein skimmers differs according to bioload and there is evidence that relatively more calcium disappears in the foam fraction than other elements, although the reason is not yet understood. Addition of supplements to life systems may cause strange effects. Iodide rises to very high levels after several dosages of potassium iodide in our systems.
