ELOS ProCoral Supplement for SPS Corals
ELOS ProCoral supplies complex carbohydrates which provide an immediate source of energy for cellular respiration as well an important energy source beneficial for a faster biosynthesis of amino acids. Useful in recreating the water conditions in and around natural coral reefs, used in conjunction with ELOS OMEGA and ELOS svC it will help to significantly reduce the need of live food and DOM, a key step toward the reduction of the level of dissolved organics and also nitrogenous waste inside modern SPS populated aquaria.
Corals spend energy for respiration, mucus production, growth and reproduction. Research has shown that the total energy demand cannot be met by photosynthesis alone. If we also consider that, through highly efficient protein skimming and fine mechanical filtration, we clear almost all organic molecules and particulate matter from our systems, we immediately realize that the the availability of nourishment inside our aquarium often become one of the limiting factor for the growth of our corals.
If we want to supply our corals the additional energy they needs to survive and, even better, flourish, we must offer them nourishment via a moltitude of sources like aminoacids, zooplankton and, in general DOM (dissolved organic matter) that they transport through cell membranes.
Note: ELOS ProCoral is a complex carbohydrate formula. In it we use only pure carbohydrate 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 take great care to packing conditions, which are made in low contamination, controlled atmosphere.

As the aquaria we maintain start to contain diverse animal life, the need for even more complete integration becomes more of a necessity, and the make-up of these additives has to be geared more particularly and specifically to these new types of aquariums in order to satisfy the requirements of all the animal life we now keep.
Through highly efficient protein skimming, we clear organic molecules and particulate matter from our systems. The impact of this method of filtration on the availability of nourishment needs to be taken into account by the modern aquarium user.
If our target is the emulation of many of the physical and chemical factors of the water flowing over the reef, if it is true that in terms of dissolved nutrients, wild reefs are very poor in nutrients, this should not allow us to ignore the presence of the very important non-dissolved nutrients. NSW over natural reefs is often rich in planktonic organisms, and other desirable small organisms very important for the survival of filter feeders such as some coral species, tube worms, sea anemones, sponges, clams, tunicates, and in general, all the biomass of our aquarium, which in a well kept and alive system, contains a macrofauna, such as small worms and crustaceans that need energy to survive.
For the good health and husbandry of these animals, including many of the smaller-polypoid corals and soft corals, we must provide the appropriate planktonic foods.
