Red Sea offers trial packs of it’s new Reef Care programPosted on Wednesday, November 9th, 2011 at 10:56 am by ReefTools
You may hare already read about Red Sea’s Reef Care program, designed to enhance coral color and growth. In order to increase the exposure of this new line, Red Sea has created new trial pack versions. The program has four steps, designed to provide a reef system with the “complete solution for: optimal coral health, accelerated coral growth, enhanced coral coloration.” Well…who doesn’t want that?
Not ready to buy the real deal yet, well here is where these trial kits come into play. You can now try Reef Energy (A, B), designed for coral nutrition supplementation, in a pack of 2, 100ml bottles. Similarly, the Coral Coloration (A,B,C,D) is available as a 4-pack capable of supporting a 55 gallon (250 liters) SPS aquarium for about 60 days.
Coral Coloration Program
This program from Red Sea, is built on years of research, which identified 31 minor and trace elements which, in addition to the foundation elements, are present in the skeletons of soft tissue of corals. The program then divided these elements into 4 groups, namely A,B,C, and D. Red Sea states that “all stony corals require all of these 31 elements, irrespective of the actual color of the coral displays.”
The Reef Energy program consists of parts A & B, which are said to provide the nutritional needs of all corals and other filter feeders. Reef Energy A, consists of a unique formulation of amino acids, fatty acids, carbohydrates and suspended protein flock which are available for direct absorption and consumption by the corals. Reef Energy B, is a very concentrated blend of amino acids and vitamins, the lack of which Red Sea found was a limiting factor in adequately fulfilling the nutritional demands of corals and other invertebrates.
