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.

    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.

    REVIEW
    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, gre...Read More

    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 cora...Read More
