Elos USA

Omega Amino Acid (50mL)

In nature, to maintain enough amino acid input to live and grow corals normally feed on plankton, either bacterial plankton, micro plankton, or "large" plankton. Unfortunately live plankton in closed aquarium is normally absent. Amino acids are also supplied by the zooxanthellae, mono-cellular algae which included in the endoderm cells of the corals, live symbiotically with many coral species. The corals` polyps take up the assimilation products that they excrete (carbohydrates, glycerin and amino acids) to live. Unfortunately, in some type of modern aquarium even the activity of zooxanthellae is significantly reduced and sometimes even intentionally impaired. The results are that corals can really "survive" in a precarious equilibrium.

If direct feeding is the best way to feed certain corals species (large LPS and soft corals), when aquarium are densely populated even with SPS this can really become unpractical and, even more, will significantly raise the level of pollutant building up resulting in increased Nitrate and Phosphate levels. Indirect feeding is then the best way to feed corals such as Acropora and/or Seriatopora and in general it is the only way in large community aquarium densely populated by several species of corals.

We have first discovered after several tests that in closed systems some species of corals (mainly SPS) could significantly benefit from a reduced addition of organic additives combined with a selective integration of amino acids. Based on these researches we have introduced to the market Elos OMEGA: the first amino acid based product available to the aquarium market.

Introduced in 1997 it is still the best product available. Based on the original researches of our laboratory, its unique formula is made to supply all the necessary amino acids and vitamins into the water and therefore really substitutes the function of zooplankton in the aquarium. It contains several amino acids in the correct proportions and in a composition very close to the one found in coral skeletons. Elos OMEGA is the ultimate additive to recreate the water conditions in and around natural coral reefs. It delivers 17 important marine amino acids necessary for the absorption and utilization of calcium. Once supplying Elos OMEGA your corals will significantly reduce their need of live food and this will significantly reduce the level of dissolved organics and also nitrogenous waste as a by-product of protein metabolism.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Original formula: the first amino acid integrator available on the aquarium market
  • Superior nutritional profiles: excellent amino acid profile
  • No preseervatives: does not contains phosphate based preservative


  • Note: Elos OMEGA is the ORIGINAL amino acid formula. In it we use only pure amino acids sources. Similar products available on the market contain various inorganic phosphate salts intentionally added to them as preservatives. To avoid the need of these preservatives we take great care to packing condition, which are made in low contaminated controlled atmosphere.

    Overall 5 star product

    Great product and highly recommend. Just a few important things to note. You don't need much of this as it's highly concentrated. I would only recommend a couple drops per 50 gallons or so. It has a very strong scent of vitamins and you might want to store it in an airtight container. Otherwise, great results on my highly SPS dominated tank! Brought my birdsnests back to life after they had a difficult time with acclimation to LEDs.

    Excellent Product!

    Works great! It's expensive, but it's worth it. My corals are showing big growth and color. Have patience with this product. It doesn't happen over night. Wait a couple of weeks and you are going to notice a BIG difference in your coral's color and overall health.

    Great product

    I would wiht out question recommend this to my freinds and i have. The only draw back is the bottle says 3 drops per gallon abd thats way to much. I cut it down to 1 drop and after 45 dyas the SPs are looking great better then ever before. I use nothing but Elos products so now i am looking to try there Pro Skimmer- Coral Nourishment (SPS)next.

    Steroids for your reef!

    Wow!!! Big change in 10-15 days. I have been a reefer for years and this product is now on my short list of required items for a reef tank (salt, water, live rock, elos omega). I have never seen such growth in a short time frame on 85-95% of my 75+ corals at once. A more natural coloring of the corals was the other noticeable change in my system. The product has a high price tag, but don't be discouraged. I have a 150gal and I use about 10 drops a day, this should last me 3-4 months or longer easily. I was so happy with this product that I decided to try their Elos Pro Skimmer - Coral Nourishment. If you are thinking of buying this item, don't think...just do it!

    Buyer Beware!

    I have been keeping and servicing Reef Aqauriums for over 15 years. I recently tried this product after hearing Mike Paletta endorse it at a reef trade show in Orange Co., CA. I am always carefull when trying a new product and followed the directions exactly. After about 3 weeks I noticed some corals beginning to fade and not open. The nxt thing I noticed was my Acanthastrea corals starting to die. Next most of my sps were fading even more. I stopped using the product after about 5 weeks and did a large water change. The SPS look better now but my Acans are gone. This product has a strong medicinal smell to it which does not appear naturally derived. Before using this product I used another US brandname Vitamin/Amino Acid supplement with great results. I think that just because a product comes form Europe does not mean it is the best on the market.
