- Reef Energy A (Carbs Nutrition) - Red Sea
Red Sea Reef Energy A is part of a two part nutritional system for corals. Along with Red Sea Energy B, this system provides all the energy, amino acids and vitamins that corals need for growth and coloration. Red Sea Reef Energy A contains a formula of carbohydrates, amino acids, fatty acids and proteins.
Three Sizes Available
Red Sea Reef Energy Dosing Recommendations*:
- Soft Corals Tank - 1 mL/25 gallons
- LPS Tank - 2 mL/25 gallons
- SPS - accelerated growth/mature tank - 2 mL/25 gallons
- SPS - enhanced colors (low nutrient) tank - 4 mL/25 gallons
Calculate the total water volume of your system (aquarium and sump minus live rocks, etc.). Mix Reef Energy A and B together directly for dosing.
*These doses are recommended starting points based on a well-stocked tank. Adjustments may need to be made. Be sure to monitor the appearance of your corals for signs of overdosing - fluctuations in nitrate and phosphate levels as wells as the development of bio-film on rocks or an algae breakout are signs that dosing changes may be necessary. Follow manufacturer's instructions.
Refrigerate after opening.
help needed By tyson on 3/24/2020tyson would recommend this product to a friendI find it kinda hard to understand how to dose. I have a 55 gal tank with a HOB skimmer and HOB refuge not sure how im suppose to use the stuff the directions are kinda vage
This is the Amino supplement to purchase. By AvS on 1/8/2020AvS would recommend this product to a friendI'm an analytical person. I have my degree in biology and chemistry. I like to figure out what works, why & how it works, and if it does... why is it better than the competition.
I've tried the competition. I doubled the dose of the competition. Then I tried the competition together, double dosed, and at the same time. They didn't work. They didn't even come close! At least in my experience in my own tanks.
Red Sea Reef Energy A & B does what is says it will and it does it cost effectively.
If you are going to use an Amino, which you should if you have very few fish, use this one. You will see results.
My only warning! Do not dose the recommend amount all at the same time. You will probably grow a ton of algae. The trick is to either drip this or dose pump it very gradually into your tank. I found that lights on or off didn't matter to my system.
Works great with sustained and noticeable coloration and growth By Andrew on 12/16/2019Andrew would recommend this product to a friendI'm a big fan of all Red Sea products (love their Coral Pro salt and test kits) and Reef Energy A & B are no exception. The company is based in Eilat, Israel actually on the Red Sea. They clearly do their homework and have the research to back up their products. My Acans and mushrooms have all swelled to massive proportions with great growth, coloration and polyp extension. All the other critters seem to love this stuff as well and are thriving.
Awesome!! By E on 1/27/2019E would recommend this product to a friendMy corals look so much better since I started dosing this!! All of my encrusting corals are growing really fast and I’ve had awesome growth with my acans and zoas. I would 100% recommend this to anyone!!
Great Product with Care By Dmize on 1/1/2019Dmize would recommend this product to a friendThe corals using the reef energy A+B really seem to come alive compared to before I started using it. Corals have more color now and seem more full. Word of caution... I would start with half the recommended dose and work your way into recommended over the course of a month. Jumping into this quickly will result in a algae bloom.
Great product By Tasha on 9/3/2018Tasha would recommend this product to a friendMy corals are thriving since adding this product rountinely to my tank
After only a month of dosing, the corals in the tank are puffed up and have more polyp extension. By Mike on 2/17/2018Mike would recommend this product to a friendI have tried several different products similar to Red Sea reef energy A and B. This is the only product I've been happy with. The corals in the tank are puffed up with greater polyp extension.
Great By Kyle on 1/3/2018Kyle would recommend this product to a friendIt works especially for low nutrient tanks, great polyp extention will by again
Love it By Bakerrichard27 on 8/25/2017Bakerrichard27 would recommend this product to a friendMy corals love it been using for 6 months great product
Outside of an algae outbreak, is there a risk to overdosing?
It can cause an increase in nutrients that would be harmful to coral health.
What is the shelf life of this product as well as Part B? Not sure what size bottle I should order. Thank you
Your average 100 gal mixed reef is going to use around 8-16ml/day so a 1000ml bottle could last you 2-5 months. You dosage will vary based on corals and demand so just use this as a ballpark figure.
