So far so good By Andrew on 3/14/2018Andrew would recommend this product to a friendAs an avid SPS collector and farmer I decided to try this after having a moderate amount of success with Coral Booster and Coral Snow (the later of which I now make DIY for much much cheaper)... I decided to go with the smallest size just as a trial run, dosing about 50% recommended. After using it all up over the course of a couple weeks in a 450g system compromised of a 150g display + 2 raceways, I'm pretty convinced it has very beneficial effects on color and possibly growth in systems that struggle to keep appropriate nutrient levels (3-5ppm nitrates and .2-.3ppm phosphate). I will keep using this product as long as I see sustained benefits of fantastic color improvement in corals and will recommend it to anyone running a low nutrient system or ULNS.
I do not recommend this product By Carlos on 5/31/2017Carlos wouldn't recommend this product to a friendUnless you have undetectable levels of NO3 do not use this product. It contains NO3 and it is not stated on the label.
Still early to say, but seems promising! By Fred on 10/17/2015Fred would recommend this product to a friendIt has only been 2 weeks, but I can say that my purples have seemed to get richer and I can surely see an improvement in overall coral coloration.

xtra special By dale on 5/4/2015dale would recommend this product to a friendI use the whole line of zucht, and wouldn't use any other because it has proven to me that it works great.
Amazing By Fishfreak on 2/24/2015Fishfreak would recommend this product to a friendAs a user of the zeovit system, this product can make a huge difference in the appearance of corals. Starting off I had some very pail corals due to lack of nutrients. After dosing this product every other day for 2 weeks all the color has came back. Very good stuff.
Pale corals By June2881 on 10/16/2014June2881 would recommend this product to a friendIm running zeovit on a 200 gallon reef tank and was having trouble with purples and a few validas being too much on the pale side. After doing some web surfing I decided to give extra special a try. After about 2 weeks of dosing opposite of pohls extra I can definitely say the color in those corals are coming back. If you are running rox carbon I recommend dosing extra special to ensure your corals are getting enough nutrition.
Enhanced colors. By waterflyer on 4/26/2014waterflyer would recommend this product to a friendThis product, while expensive, is great for tanks that are very clean and need nutrients. It will add a bit of phosphate but it is negligible as long as you maintain quality water. Great for SPS. I noticed significant growth in my acro colonies.
No noticeable effect By Trevor on 4/21/2014Trevor wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI have dosed a 250ml bottle of this additive and haven't noticed any effect on my corals. After I stopped dosing I didn't notice any impact. It just doesn't really seem to do much.
Dont Run Out By MHG on 11/9/2013MHG would recommend this product to a friendSo I have been dosing XTRA Special for 2 years. I noticed better colors within about two weeks of starting. When I recently ran out I figured by tank is older and more stable so I don't need it. Within a few weeks 3 of my larger colonies lost their fluorescence and color. Within a couple of weeks or starting to dose again, my colors in those colonies are coming back...
Excellent product though pricey. By John on 5/7/2013John would recommend this product to a friendThis is an excellent product for what it claims to be...an sps color enhancer. A noticeable difference was detected after just 2 doses. Expensive, but worth it if you're an sps reefer. In fact, compared to many things in this hobby it's rather reasonably priced.
Can pohls xtra be used with the xtra special or is that just redundant
The two Poh's Xtra formulas are variations of the same supplement, with the Xtra Special being formulated with an extra boost for ultra low nutrient systems where color fading tends to occur. I would choose one or the other based on your system setup and needs.
Have a great day!
