Elos Omega Amino Acid
In a natural ocean enviroment, corals feed on plankton, either bacterial plankton, micro plankton, or "large" plankton to maintain enough amino acid input to live and grow. Unfortunately live plankton in closed aquarium is normally absent.
Elos discovered that the use of selected amino acids and vitamins is a much more effective and convenient way of replicating the function of zoo-plankton in the aquarium. Certain corals, mainly SPS, respond very quickly to the combination of Omega and Pro Skimmer.
Great Product!!! By Brandon on 5/21/2015Brandon would recommend this product to a friendI purchased this along with Elos Pro Skimmer. I used both of these products in conjunction with one another. This product is great!!! After a week of dosing all of my acros had there polyps extended 24/7. Not long after I noticed growth to increase and I started to see more vibrant purples and pinks in my SPS. My LPS also seemed to fatten up after I started using these two products. This product seems pricy, but for my corals' needs it only takes a few drops, making this product last quite a long time. It is very concentrated. I also only dosed this product at night when lights were out. It can cause cyano if overdosed so you will have to watch out for that and just cut back. Overall it is a great product and I highly recommend it for your SPS, if you aren't already dosing amino acids.
Best amino acid supplements on the market By Dave on 12/20/2014Dave would recommend this product to a friendI've used a ton of snake oil supplements but this one is the real deal! Very concentrated compared to most
Massive Improvement By Mark on 10/23/2014Mark would recommend this product to a friendI can't say yet for certain about most of my coral. But after just a few days my war coral looks like I have NEVER seen before. The "eyes" seem to have doubled in size and the color is very different. My starry night seems to have much more growth indications. And I have barely begun to ramp up the dose. So far no crazy cyano growth. I turn the skimmer off for several hours after I dose. I am wondering if dosing makes more sense in the morning or evening.
Very good stuff!! By A grandis on 7/29/2013A grandis would recommend this product to a friendI'm a believer in amino acids' addition, so this was one more product to the list.
The immediate thing I've noticed is the concentration. It is so good to be able to use concentrated products. It will probably last longer!!
I don't have hard corals. My system is basically for zoanthids and fishes, and this will drive your zoas crazy!
I'm very happy to try the product!
Make sure you store the bottle in a dry cool dark place.

guess I'm the odd man out By Gene on 3/30/2013Gene wouldn't recommend this product to a friend100% waste of money, in my case. Had no effect at all, except at growing cyano. Sorry. This is not the review I had hoped to give.
One Dose and I Saw Results!!! By Shane on 2/8/2013Shane would recommend this product to a friendThis is my first review on BRS... I have purchased many things from here and I offer an unbiased opinion.
I have a 300+ system heavy coral's both hard and soft. My display is upstairs and plumbed to the basement frag tank and sump.
My softies always did great but I wanted more extension of hard coral polyps...milli's. So I tried Elos Amino Acids. I added it right to the display tank in the PM. I woke up and all the milli's had the whisper polyp's out full bore. Now this has not been the case for a long time and I hadn't done anything different but add the Amino Acids. Yes it has only been 12 hours but that to me is astounding! I will wait another month and update this post...
For $30 bucks do it for the health of your tank...
Worth the money for the colors you get By Andy on 11/28/2012Andy would recommend this product to a friendThis stuff will improve colors in SPS tremendously. The initial price tag seems like a lot, but a bottle has lasted me three years for my 60 gallon tank. I was skeptical until I saw an SPS tank in person that had ridiculous colors. The owner said he used this stuff so I bought it. After about a week, you will see a noticeable difference.
great product By evan on 9/8/2012evan would recommend this product to a friendI really noticed polyp extension after starting to use this product
