Salifert

Why are amino acids required?
The skeletal material of corals is built-up with alternating layers of calcium carbonate and layers rich in amino acids.

These amino acids fulfill many important functions. They stabilize the skeletal material avoiding the transformation into a totally different crystal structure, and they also decrease the negative effect of phosphate on coral growth.

Furthermore amino acids serve as a food for most corals and beneficial bacteria.

There is sufficient evidence that around coral reefs the desirable amino acids occur in the water itself and are deposited on freshly formed calcium carbonate. The type of amino acids in solution and their relative proportions show a remarkable similarity to the amino acids found in coral skeletons. Therefore it is very likely that corals obtain these amino acids from the surrounding waters.

These amino acids originate from the many different life forms on coral reefs. An aquarium system lacking the bio-diversity of a huge reef may suffer from a lack of the proper amino acids.

About Coralline AminoAcids
There is sufficient evidence for that some amino acids are highly essential while some amino acids have a negative impact on the stability and growth of corals.

Salifert`s Coralline AminoAcids contains all the amino acids in correct proportions as found in coral skeletons.

We omit all amino acids which have a negative effect on the stability and growth of the coral skeleton.

Salifert is currently the only company offering such a well-defined formulation.

Coralline AminoAcids gives corals the opportunity to form a stable skeleton or skeletal needles. The negative effects of phosphate are also markedly decreased.

Also, all ingredients are of a pharmaceutical quality or even better. This ensures that no unwanted elements are added to your valuable aquarium.

Shake before use.

Keep out of reach of children. In case of contact with eyes rinse with plenty of water. Only for aquarium-hobby use. Not for human consumption (directly or indirectly)!

Salifert Bio/Amino

As usual Salifert is a product we all know and trust. My reef aquarium is doing great and all of my corals are looking good. Once a week is not to much to ask when your dosing already. I have a 125 gallon aquarium with lots of goodies. This product gives me that extra insurance like the miracle mud that all of those hard to find nutrients found in saltwater are there and readily available. I have tree sponges and the leopard wrasse that are hard to keep that are doing great. Well worth the money.

Best amino acid out there

I don't always write review but when i do, it's worth to try. I have been using amino acid supplement for my sps tank for a long time. Elos, Acropower, fuels, and more. They are all good products but just not powerful enough as least can can see or tell by naked eyes. Salifert amino acids however show me what amino acid can really do for my corals. before salifert my sps already having good PE and colors, but after Salifert all of my corals just tooks off. I love it! 5ml per 25gallons every two days.

Best supplement I've use

This was a single variable test, adding Salifert's AA. After one weeks time I noticed dramatic polyp extension and tip growth. Seems as if this was what my system was lacking for explosive growth. I am not running Zeovit, but I keep my nutrient load low.

amino acids

Having a 400 gal sps tank is quite demanding. I usually rely on just water changes for health. Amino acids truly do cause more polyp extension and makes my acros just look happier. toothman.

Excellent Additive

This product combined with other salifert products like calcium, iodine, trace soft, trace hard and magnesium, works great and keeps your corals healthy and vibrant. I've used this product for about 2 years and i'm very satisfied with it.
