Salifert Bio Coral / Amino Acids Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

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.

Regular maintenance:
Dose 5 ml per 100 liters (25 gallons) once every week.

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)!

Active ingredients: amino acids and amino carbohydrates.

Comments: 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.

Comments: 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.
