- Amino Acid Concentrate LPS - Korallen-Zucht
Amino acid blend designed specifically for Large Polyp Stony (LPS) corals.
- Increases coral growth
- Coral tissue will expand immediately after dosing
- Injured corals will regenerate faster
- Positive impact on LPS coral growth
A high quality amino acid based food source for LPS corals: including Catalaphylia,Cynarina Blastomusa, Heliofungias, Welsophylia, Musidae, Symphylia and Fungias.
Upon dosing, corals expand their tissue immediately. Regular dosing will increase growth as well as the regeneration of damaged corals. This product is particularly useful in helping corals acclimate during the initial stages of implementing any low nutrient system.
Recommended dose is 1ml per 50 gallons per day.
Better alternatives at lower prices. By AvS on 1/8/2020AvS wouldn't recommend this product to a friendA little background. I am always looking for products to give me an edge in growth or color. I was testing this in a professional setting on my 200 gallon frag system. I have tried this before in my personal tank, but wanted to give it a try on something with low nutrients. I run this system with barely any fish and a minimal invert crew. My coral get their nutrition from either direct feeding or the dosing of amino acids.
I typically use Reef Energy A&B for my main Aminos, but took a month off to try this product. Double dosed each day with the SPS + LPS formula. Yes, that means I double dosed both at the same time (quadruple dosing). Saw no improvement in color, extensions, etc. I get better coral color and growth from Red Sea Reef Energy A & B. The great colors I got using RE A&B were diminished during the month of using these two products.
The take away? Sure this product might help your coral if they are starving and absolutely need some sort of nutrition, but from my conclusions and analysis there are better products out there for less money and better efficacy.
I'm impressed By Kent on 3/30/2019Kent would recommend this product to a friendIf you want to get the best out of your coral, this Amino should be part if your dosing routine. I use this, Kent marine coral vite, and phyto. I also target feed reef chili twice a week. This is my winning combination and my coral are flourishing. I decided to put my dosing regimen to the test and bought an Ora neon green birdsnest frag from the $5 section at my LFS. It was thin, and had almost no zooxanthellae left. In two weeks it's completely turned around. The frag is full, the zooxanthellae is coming back and I'm already getting new skeletal growth. I know this is for LPS and Softies but I honestly don't think if would have gotten as positive of a result without it. I have a mixed reef nano.
Awesome and highly recommended By Thomas on 12/8/2018Thomas would recommend this product to a friendFirst dose a few days ago saw the corals react by shrinking and closing up for a while but they opened back up within a few hours. Since then, the corals have reacted positively and have been opening up much larger. I have a dozen torches and hammers, 2 blastos and a candy cane coral. I am dosing only about 2/3 of the recommended dose and the corals seem happy. I maintain 0 nitrates and 0.05 phosphates and I started feeding Reef Chili so we shall see how fast the corals grow. So far I can say I am impressed with this product.
Good product for LPS By Jeanette on 11/27/2017Jeanette would recommend this product to a friendI have a hard time keeping nitrates up in my tank, and my corals tend to suffer sometimes because of it. This product really works well with my LPS - especially my lobo. The heads get nice and plump after using this and growh has increased.
Another Excellent Korallen Product By Coral Guy on 8/25/2017Coral Guy would recommend this product to a friendI keep a well maintained and established 69 gal Red Sea max with sump, and have had luck and ease with Sps growth and coloration but stuggled with soft coral extension and growth. After 10 days of dosing half cap a day almost all of my soft corals have quadropled in size/ heads and the extenders extend much much further which makes it easier for them to catch frozen mysis shrimp during feeding.
An absolute nessesity for soft corals
Excellent product for your LPS corals By FLSharkvictim on 7/18/2017FLSharkvictim would recommend this product to a friendIt took about a good week before this product started to work and you could actually notice a difference. My Frogspawn, Octospawn, and my Hammer corals start to blow up big after about the 10th day. HIGHLY recommend for LPS corals and my T-Maxima Clams.. 5 stars across the board and his is the only supplement that I add along with my phytoplankton to my Mixed Reef / LPS dominated tank.
Great product By Joe on 4/27/2017Joe would recommend this product to a friendThis product works great. My splatter hammer coral was not extending its polyps the way it did when I first bought it and looked like it was receding. I dosed this product and they extended more immediately after dosing I really didn't believe it. It's been over a month now and it's doing really well. I bought 2 other KZ products before and had mixed reviews of it so I was skeptical of this but it really works well.
Total waste of money By Danny on 12/8/2016Danny wouldn't recommend this product to a friendHave a 300 gallon lps tank. Dosed this and it does nothing at all. My lps look exactly the same as they did before I used this. Don't waste your money
Good Stuff By Joey on 10/20/2016Joey would recommend this product to a friendI'm trying to dose this every other day since I manually do it. I have a ten gallon so plan to do 0.4 mabye 3-4x weekly. My LPS and softies seem to respond well.
Jury still out By Greg on 8/24/2016Greg would recommend this product to a friendUsing for 3 weeks now. Not showing any change on LSP. Water parameters are fine
Love it By Tonya on 6/8/2016Tonya would recommend this product to a friendMy corals love this stuff especially my Duncan coral, a little goes s long way, I purchased the small kit but I will order the larger bottles when I am out because I can really tell a difference.
Great Stuff By BDHela on 8/18/2015BDHela would recommend this product to a friendI have to say been dosing Reef Energy A and B and this stuff coupled with their LPS it truly makes a difference. Will be dosing these daily now via doser now as my go to.
What is the shelf life for this product? Do I need to refrigerate it?
How often should I dose this? Do I need to turn the skimmer off before dosing?
