Molybdenum is a trace element that is needed for the creation of carbohydrates and amino-acids.

Molybdenum supplementation for freshwater[edit]

Molybdenum supplementation for saltwater[edit]

Generally speaking there is no reason to supplement Molybdenum. Most salt mix manufacturers place enough Molybdenum in their mixes to bring it up to par with natural ocean water. Trace Element supplements will put some in there as well. Extreme caution is advised when supplementing anything that you are not testing for. High levels of this element are toxic.
