100% Reef Safe Amino Acid Protein Supplement

Postby 100% Reef Safe » Sat 24 Jan, 2009 3:21 pm

After alot of research we are happy to offer the 100% Reef Safe Amino Acid Supplement to you. It has been well recieved by fellow reefers here in Qld. :thumbsup:

Here is a link to the web site 100% Reef Safe Amino Acid Supplement

Amino Acid Protein Supplement For Marine Tanks

Facilitating optimum nutritional uptake of beneficial algae

This supplement will maximise coral growth, colour and polyp extension. It will enhance the healing process in damaged corals and encourages the production of more protective slime in SPS corals.

Amino Acids are fast becoming one of the most essential additions to any serious reef keeper’s arsenal. There are many different reasons why they are being used. Vitamins and proteins are included in one easy supplement to provide your corals with the much needed energy that they would not otherwise get in a closed aquarium environment.

In Nature, corals will receive these proteins via plankton, micro plankton or even bacterial plankton. However in a closed aquarium environment these are normally not present. Zooxanthellae which live symbiotically in many corals “expel” these acids which in turn feed the coral along with many other substances. In most aquariums the activity of these symbiotic algaes are greatly reduced in which the corals are only “Surviving” and not “Thriving”.

Indirect and Direct feeding’s are generally not the best method to approach feeding your corals as it generally results in increased nutrient levels such as phosphates and nitrates. This is where the Amino Acids come in handy. By dosing high quality products such as 100% Reef Safe Amino Acid Protein Supplement, you are introducing the correct proportions of amino acids found in coral skeletons. This then helps to create the conditions found in a wild living coral reef.

Recommended Dosage:

½ to 1 level scoop (enclosed) per 500lt of aquarium water. Mix the required amount of Amino Acid Protein Supplement in a container, let stand for 1 hour then slowly add to the aquarium.

Contains:

Alanine, Arginine, Aspartate, Cystine, Glutamate, Glycine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Valine, Tryptophan, Lysine, Methionine, Histidine, Proline, Serine, Tryosine, Phenylalanine, Threonine. No Preservatives - does not contain Phosphate based preservative.

Given this is a protein product your skimmer may produce excessive skimate with the addition of this supplement to your tank.

While many have questioned and pondered the mysterious source of the Amino Acids I though I would take the plunge and purchase some and see how they go.

Firstly my tank has always had low nutrients, this is because of low stock (not many fish), small feedings (for my small amount of fish) and a large skimmer, also I occasionally spill vodka in the tank which seems to help.
Tank Stats:
4x2x2 + sump approx 500L total volume
Nitrate: 0
Nitrite: 0
Alk: 8
Calcium: 410
Phosphate: 0.00 (hanna meter)

This is a small tabling acro I got from 100% Reef Safe
Image

This is it about ~2 months later
ImageImage
Excuse the bad photos the glass was very dirty. So this acro had pretty good growth and had turned a sort of rusty orange/brown color.

This is 1 week later after dosing AA's every second day with the skimmer turned off for 1hr. I use the Tropic Marin phyton/zooton (coral food also available from 100% Reef Safe) spoon and just add 1 spoonful.
Image
Basically what has happened is within a week the new growth on the acro turned pink and it has now started to work down the body of the acro.

My tank levels are the same as when I started, but my acro is coloring up nicely and I couldn't be happier with the result :bow: In regards to how long it will last, well at my current dosing I would estimate 2 years which isn't bad for $15 I may step up the dosing level in the future but things seem to work nicely for now.

I will add some more pics as the acro keeps coloring up, but I would recommend this to anyone who likes the colorful sticks :cheers:

No, as any excess will be skimed out. I have dosed with double even triple the amount with no side effects. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the quick reply Pete! I don't actually run a skimmer on my nano so that would be a problem wouldn't it?

By the way, received the AA from you yesterday, thanks for that mate...very quick delivery!

I would reduce the dose a bit and see how it goes. I am pretty confident it wont be a problem as it would be taken up by the corals fairly well.

Hi Pete,

Just curious if you know the reason why the amino acids have to stand for an hour before going into the tank. Are there any adverse effects if I don't wait that long?

Only reason is to absorb into other products if used in conjunction to amino acids like phyton, zooton, reefroids etc to help boost these foods. Other than that it can be dosed after mixing. :thumbsup:

You can and should mix it with foods :) start off 1-2 times a week at a smaller dose rate, then gradually build up. At smaller rates I was able to dose it daily, though most tanks will be fine 2-3 times a week.

Yes you can and build it up to everyday. I think Ben has pretty well hit the nail on the head.

Hi Craig,

I haven't had anyone tell me they have used it on a full Zeovit system but many have on partial systems without any issues at all. Maybe one of the Zeo users who has used it could comment. I can't see it having any adverse affects on it though.

From a nutitional value they would benefit from it yes, but i would probably start with a 1/4 dose initially and see how they go. Personally i have never tested it for this purpose.

1/4 dose? a standard dose is 1/2 -1 spoon. What would a 1/4 dose be for 250ML of BBS?

What would be better to enrich these little guys?

I assume you are using it on your tank? If so i would take a little once mixed and add that to your BBS.

Unfortunately no it can't be done this way as it is a protien and will go off. The longest i had it set up like this was 3 days up here in Qld but it was the heat that got to it. Even coral foods will go off once mixed with water after a few days. Some people have made a batch enough for a weeks worth and kept it in the fridge and dosed as needed through out the day over the week.

I mix mine with ether reefpearls, reef roids or tropic Marin photo/zoo and dose during when lights on one day then next day feed when lights off as some corals feed during lights on and off.

do you turn off your return pump and skimmer for half an hour or so when feeding this mixture? and leave vortech on to blow the mixture around the tank? or do you target feed
