Aquaforest Coral A http://www.charterhouse-aquatics.co.uk/
Essential for marine aquarium, especially for Ultra Low Nutrient Systems (ULNS). Contains concentrated amino acids, one of the main source of energy for all types of corals and filter feeders. It accelerates metabolism, aids growth as well as vitality. In natural coral reefs the concentration of total amino acids is low. It fluctuates between 200-500 nmol/l. However the latest scientific research proves that coral can adsorb up to 7 times more amino acids depending on availability. Amino acids are very easily removed by skimming process, ozone or granulated carbon. Regular dosing is highly recommended. Ingredients: Alanine, Asparagine Aspartate, Biotin, Glutamate, Glutamine, Glycine, Histidine, Leucine, Methionine, Valine, Serine. Dosing 1 drop for 100l every other day when the light is off.

Fauna Marin Coral Balance http://www.h2oaquatics.co.uk/
Coral Balance is a modern nutrient control system that enhances metabolic turnover rates. It was specifically formulated to reactivate and stabilise nutrient cycles and alkalinity control in modern reef aquaria. Phosphate reduction, which is usually hard to control, will be increased and stabilised, leading to permanently low phosphate levels. Using the natural power of marine biopolymers, Fauna Marin Coral Balance will produce remarkable results even at very low doses. Fauna Marin Coral Balance is a coral feed, nutrient and water conditioner in one product. Due to its special formula it works rapidly and efficiently, speeds up nutrient reduction by increased coral growth and biological element cycling. Corals will become more resilient by forming a natural protective layer and increase their coloration. Coral Balance will supply dissolved and particulate nutrients like minerals and dissolved organics directly to your corals. Natural biopolymers and marine organic compounds will supplement the water in your aquarium with essential compounds. Acid-base regulation will be stabilised, helping to maintain stable biological and chemical conditions.

Salifert Coralline Aminoacids
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.

Two Little Fishies AcroPower www.reefstore.co.uk
AcroPower supplies amino acids that corals need to build their skeletal architecture. Like other cnidaria, corals have a special ability to uptake dissolved amino acids across their entire surface. Closed system aquariums with protein skimming and other ULN (ultra-low nutrient) filtration methods deplete amino acids that are vitally important for coral health. Corals become more colorful within days due to the extension of the growing margins when AcroPower is used.

Polyp Lab Reef-Roids
The unique aspect of REEF-ROIDS is that unlike most artificial coral foods, they are not manufactured from the usual assortment of bulk ground ingredients such as krill, fish meal and fillers which are then dosed with amino acids to elicit a feeding response. Reef-Roids are instead manufactured from pure high density marine Zooplankton, thereby offering the most natural and realistic range of food types and particle sizes (150-200um) available to the widest range of corals and other invertebrates, many of which rely on key scent markers to identify prey as applicable to that particular species. Users have commonly noted that many Zooanthids, Mushrooms, Goniopora, and a whole host of hard corals both LPS and SPS show a remarkable feeding response. Additional noted changes with long term use have been increased growth rates and stronger colouration due to the more natural range of essential trace elements and amino acids found locked within the Zooplankton
