I put "other" because BRS was left out. While they come in a powder form, they are still a liquid, because you just add RODI water into the container to make a liquid solution that is dosed into your tank. Other than that, I voted for Brightwell and Redsea too.

Red Sea NoPox for nitrate control (daily maintenance dose) and Seachem Zooplankton for coral feeding (twice a week). And I just started Vibrant to see if I get rid of the stubborn turf algae that I siphon out each week.

I have gone through a number of brands over the years. Switched to ATI when I started using their testing service. Very happy with the results. Parameters took a little while to dial in but are rock solid now. Corals look very happy

I use Brightwell, Triton and Fauna Marin mostly. However, I also use KZ Amino daily. I’ve had pretty good success with those.

Well, I always use Prime at water changes to eliminate chemical contamination

Every other week, Seachem Phytoplankton

Periodically, Fauna Marin's Dino X. My system is just about 9 months old, so I must tamp down dinos when they show up

When it comes to additives for your saltwater reef aquariums we have many brands and products to choose from. I was thinking about these liquid additives and was wondering which ones were most used by the R2R community! So do me a solid and vote for the liquid brands you trust most for your tank. Let's talk about it!

1. What are your TOP 3 Liquid Additive "BRANDS" that you trust to use in your reef tank?

2. What are the names of the liquid additives you use in your reef tank?

How do you find the Aquaforest?
If I may suggest, contact Aquaforest directly. Aquaforest is really good about getting back. Also Aquaforest has a Facebook group. Members from AquaForest’s staff are on the Facebook group answering and helping daily.

I would think you would have an easier time locating product we’re you are, verses here in the US right now. Sourcing product here has been difficult, but can be found by contacting CoralVue, the US distributor. :)
