Lithium

Hi aquaforest

First I would like to say I love your products, my tank has been running for 10 months with no water changes ( I know u recommend water change)
I dose components 123 and abve and used reef salt, I use marin lab icp tests every 4 months my results are good the only element that has been going up is lithium. It is now 1.6 mgl.
what af salt is best use to bring this down?
Does any components bring lithium up?
Is this a dangerous level?
Any help is much appreciated.
Po4 0.05
Nitrate 0.5
Calcium 470
Mag 1400
DKH 7.2
500l tank
Dosing 35ml day 123
All sps/corals look great.

Thanks Matt

Your Lithum level is 0,160 mg/l (ppm), right?
This level looks perfect.

Aquaforest Sea Salt has low levels of Lithum but We don't recommend to use this salt when you have corals in aquarium.

Your Lithum level is very very high!
Did you check your RO water also?

DJcatfood, yes, it was a typo and it's totally our fault. Thank you for your alertness. The results were already corrected in your user panel. Sorry for the mistake.

Your lithium levels are as the above, so yes, we advise you to check your RO water since lithium can get through the system.

It's completely normal that the consistency may get thicker. This has no effect on the quality and effectiveness of the product.
You can dilute it with water but only if you use it immediately, otherwise the product may go bad.
