Red Sea

Iodine/Halogen complex that promote the pink colors in corals.

Coral Colors A Supplement is part of the complete range of complementary major, minor and trace element complexes which together provide the needs of corals.

Coral Colors A Supplement contains iodine and other halogens that are associated with many biological processes, one of them being the production of the pink pigments in the soft tissue of corals. The halogens act both as antioxidants and oxidative agents within the soft tissue and mucus layer of corals, reducing the possibility of coral bleaching.

In active reef systems, these elements are depleted quickly due to their high oxidative abilities and reactivity with organic materials. Iodine and bromine are related to the pink chromo-protein (pocciloporin).

For best results in displaying coral colors use Red Sea’s NO3: PO4- X.

1ml will raise the iodine level of 100 liters (25 gal) by 0.03ppm

Handy dosing chart and cup

Good product. I like that it isn't just iodide or iodide with 500 other things. The dosing chart on the back is handy to avoid doing much math. You will need to know how many liters your tank is though, as it lists by liters not gallons. The measuring cup that comes with it is also very handy. The concentration is very workable for a mid-size tank (30-100 gallons say) resulting in easily measured doses. That said it would be expensive to dose a large tank with, and more the issue in my case, the measurements can get tedious for a nano; my 14 gallon for example needs just 0.5 mL a week. Normally I put a medicine dosing cork in the neck of my supplements and measure them with a syringe for this tank because that is the easiest way to get small accurate measurements. The neck of the bottle on this one is too large to use this method though. So I guess that would be my one recommended improvement for it.
