Just ordered a bottle from @Bulk Reef Supply and will be receiving it today. Has anyone used it? What is everyone's thoughts? 90% of tank in LPS/Softie.

I've not used it nor do I know anyone that has, but if it's anything like the Coral Boost and Flatworm Stop some of my SPS buddies use I think you'll love it. Only one way to find right right... I've been playing around with the idea of dosing FW Stop for my SPS tank, but I just haven't bit the bullet. Stuff ain't cheap.

I figured the same thing. "Only one way to find out". I am going to take pics today before starting it and then monthly to see the change or lack there of. PAR meter should be arriving this week so I will know the light situation. I will monitor the chemistry in the tank to make that stays the same and will not make any changes to the flow.

I will report the results here.

I actually tried a trial bottle of this LPS amino acid formula as recommended by my LFS. Didnt notice anything at first but when I increased the dose they responded noticeably well and seemed to be performing great.

But when my trial ran out its like they went through a withdrawal period for a week looking like crap. I switched to Acropower a few weeks later because its a bit more economical, and the coral were further displeased by the switch up, leading me to end dosing altogether.

After the experience I just stuck to no dosing. My advice is stay committed to a regiment and wean off gradually if you decide to quit a product.

I'm curious how this compares to other amino acid products.

In my situation I can't make a fair comparison b/w Korralen and Acropower, but the LPS formula definitely left an impression on me. Never found out what makes an AA product for LPS vs SPS.

I use the regular zeovit amino acid supplement. The directions are for broadcast feeding, but I have my pumps off so often to feed my mandarin, that I often feed directly to the corals. It seems like it's more highly concentrated than other brands like brightwell. The dose for the zeovit aminos is a couple of drops, Brighwell is a ML. I agree that most corals respond positively, so I've continued to dose this supplement and think it does increase growth and polyp extension.

I have been using it for about 3 weeks, and I have observed a noticeable difference in the tissue of my LPS. I broadcast 6 days and add it to my mix for spot feeding 1 day a week. So far so good! It is a little pricey, but the dosage is minimal.
