Hi @Lou Ekus , @Hans-Werner

I have not been able to find more information about availability of this product to the USA.

On your website:
Stimulates coral growth, intensifies colouring and reduces phosphate in the reef aquarium biologically

Pale or brownish corals are often caused by too weak a concentration of easily digestible nitrogen compounds. Tropic Marin® Amino-Organic contains amino acids and other organic nitrogen compounds that stimulate the growth of soft and leather corals, as well as disc anemones and zoanthids. This results in greater absorption, by the anthozoans, of the phosphate available from the water, biologically reducing phosphate concentrations. These near-natural conditions result in the anthozoans opening better, visibly flourishing, with greater vitality and a more intense colouring. Tropic Marin® Amino-Organic does not contain nitrates or phosphates.

1. Does this product help with LPS and SPS colouring as well?

2. How about stimulating growth of LPS and SPS?

3. Will it be available to USA this year?

I am excited to try this new product as I have had great success with your All for Reef and Carbon Dosing lines!

Thank you.

Thanks Lou.

Any e.t.a. date?

Also I seem to recall that @Hans-Werner does not like dosing nitrate.
Could this mean the Nitrogen source be more in the form of Ammonium?

As found on google:
Organic Nitrogen Compounds and the Environment. ... They are compounds which can be thought of as derivatives of ammonia, NH3. Amines are typically identified by the number of alkyl (carbon) groups attached to the nitrogen atom.

Yes, as the name states Amino-Organic contains amino acids and another organic nitrogen compound.

I personally had a bad experience with nitrate, replacing urea by nitrate equimolar in regards to nitrogen. After this a tabulate montipora bleached and partially died. Today I think nitrate was and is negatively influencing phosphate acquisition. This is why I prefer other compounds over nitrate although we include some nitrate amongst other nitrogen compounds in some other products but not in Amino-Organic. I think a mix with nitrate is much less problematic.

To come back to Amino-Organic: It is in first place an amino acid product. :)

Can you share what you noticed? I am waiting for it to come to the states....
Better polyp extension on all corals, LPS are more buffed up, colors have become more deeper. And I have to say I was very skeptical about dosing aminos, as I though it's just new gimmick trend, however, as I love Tropic Marin products and pretty much everything I dose or use are TM, I wanted to give a go. I have been pleasantly surprised and would like to continue, only thing hindering this is the cost factor, which would be more reasonable with bigger packaging

Thank you! I want to see better polyp extension on my LPS and puffier as well.
My PO4 are at 0.04 right now and NO3 is less than 0.25..
