Corals spend energy for respiration, mucus production, growth and reproduction. Research has shown that the total energy demand cannot be met by photosynthesis alone. If we also consider that through highly efficient protein skimming and fine mechanical filtration we clear almost all organic molecules and particulate matter from our systems, we immediately realize that the availability of nourishment inside our aquarium often becomes one of the limiting factor for the growth of our corals.

If we want to supply our corals the additional energy they need to survive and, even better, flourish, we must offer them nourishment via a multitude of sources like amino acids, zooplankton, live food, frozen food and manufactured food, which can result in excess DOM (dissolved organic matter).

In 1997, ELOS undertook a groundbreaking research project where it was proven that in closed systems, some species of corals (mainly SPS) significantly benefit (better colors and more rapid growth) from a reduced DOM or dissolved organic matter. At that time, ELOS introduced to the market a “Trio” of high quality supplements to address this issue and feed your corals. One part of this Trio is a source of additional digestible energy – ELOS ProSkimmer.

ELOS Pro Skimmer supplies complex carbohydrates which provide an immediate source of energy for cellular respiration as well an important energy source beneficial for a faster biosynthesis of amino acids. ProSkimmer will assist in recreating the naturally occurring water conditions in and around coral reefs when used in conjunction with ELOS Omega and ELOS SvC. This Trio of products, when used together, will help to significantly reduce the need of live food and dissolved organic material, with an additional benefit of reduction of nitrogenous waste in a modern SPS populated aquaria.

Highlights: 

  • Reproduces the suspended colloidal matter founded in the natural seawater
  • Superior nutritional profiles; high bio-available carbohydrate source
  • Does not contain phosphate based preservatives


Note: ELOS Pro Skimmer is a complex carbohydrate formula. In it we use only pure carbohydrate 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 conditions, which are made in low contamination, controlled atmosphere. 



Manufacturer Info

ELOS America is the USA branch of a time-honored tradition. ELOS has been in business in Europe for over 25 years, and is recognized as one of the most innovative leaders in the aquarium industry. In 1997, ELOS was the first to discover that in closed systems, some species of corals (mainly SPS) significantly benefit (better colors and more rapid growth) from a reduced addition of organic additives (dissolved organic material), but only when compensated by a selective addition of high quality nourishment. Based on our groundbreaking and innovative research, ELOS introduced to the market a "Trio" of products to feed our corals – Omega (Amino Acids), SvC (planktonic Coral Food) and Pro-Skimmer (Carbonate Source).

ELOS was also the very first company to produce LED lights for the aquarium, the first to produce a rimless tank, the first to use probiotics in our foods, and numerous other firsts. ELOS is committed to providing high quality products to the aquarium industry and customers quickly recognize our dedication to not only advancing the hobby through research and innovation, but also our dedication to elegant simplicity in design and use.

PROS
Sps responds positively, no noticeable increase in phosphates or nitrates
REVIEW
After having a doser malfunction, I lost color in a lot of my sps. I started using this in conjunction with Elos Omega Aminos and started seeing color improve fairly quickly. Seeing noticeable difference quickly has me hooked!

REVIEW
seriously amazing stuff I've dosed for 3 days now and on most of my acros I've never seen it become much bolder fluorescent color (example: the secondary colors on acros become much more noticeable like brighter yellow tips, I had faint sky blue tip turn to and royal blue with crazy polyp extension)...Read More
