ELOS Omega Amino Acid Supplement for SPS Corals
ELOS OMEGA is the ultimate additive to recreate the water conditions in and around natural coral reefs. It delivers 17 important marine amino acids necessary also for the absorption and utilization of calcium. Once supplying ELOS OMEGA your corals will significantly reduce their need of live food and this will significantly reduce the level of dissolved organics and also nitrogenous waste as a by-product of protein metabolism. Does not contain phosphate based preservatives.
Amino acids are also supplied by the zooxantellae, mono-cellular algae, which is included in the endoderm cells of the corals and lives symbiotically with many coral species. This provides the coral with glycerin, amino acids and carbohydrates.
Unfortunately in some aquariums this activity is reduced, sometimes intentionally. In our original studies we observed 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.
Note: ELOS OMEGA is the ORIGINAL amino acid formula. In it we use only pure amino acids sources. Similar products available on the market contain various inorganic phosphate salts intentionally added to them as preservatives. To avoid the need of these preservatives we use dark glass containers with glass syringe and we take great care to packing conditions, which are made into low contaminated controlled atmosphere.

In nature, to maintain enough amino acid input to live and grow, corals normally fed on plankton, either bacterial plankton, micro plankton, or "large" plankton. Unfortunately live plankton in closed aquarium is normally absent.
Amino acids are also supplied by the Zooxantaellae, mono-cellular algae, which, included in the endoderm cells of the corals, live symbiotically with many coral species. The corals' polyps take up the assimilation products that they excrete (carbonhydrates, glycerin and amino acids) to live.
Unfortunately, in some type of modern aquarium even the activity of zooxanthellae is significantly reduced and sometimes even intentionally impaired. The results is that corals can really "survive" in a precarious equilibrium which can quickly take them to die.
If direct feeding could be the best way to feed certain corals species (large LPS and soft corals), when aquarium are densely populated even with SPS, this can really become unpractical and, even more, will significantly rise the level of pollutant building up Nitrate and Phosphate levels.
Indirect feeding is then the best way to feed corals such as Acropora, Seriatopora, and in general, it is the unique way in large community aquarium densely populated by several species of corals.
We have first discover , after several test, that in closed systems some species of corals (mainly SPS) could significantly benefit from a reduced addition of organic additives combined with a selective integration of amino acids. Based on these researches we have introduced to the market ELOS OMEGA: the first amino acid based product available to the aquarium market.
Introduced in 1997 it is still the best product available.Based on the original researches of our laboratory, its unique formula is made to supply all the necessary amino acids and vitamins into the water and therefore really substitutes the function of zoo-plankton also in the aquarium. It contains several amino acids, in the correct proportions, in a composition very closed to the one found in coral skeletons.
