To be honest I’m not really wanting to ‘dose’ as a whole thing just add something to the water to ‘feed’ the corals and make them happierI would suggest some more research on dosing and watching these videos first. The reeflowers is just part of a 2 part balling method of dosing while the coral essentials coral power is a vitamin and amino mixture.
You will also want to test calcium and alkalinity at the minimum if dosing
Thank you, I will have a look into the calc and Alk but I don’t want to start anything too tricky just yet, I’ve only just got my first non soft coral lolin that case i would suggest using live phytoplankton to feed the aquarium once a day, usually right after lights out.
Dosing ca/alk is critical to keeping a tank stable though and will grow corals faster than any feedings will (fish poop will keep them fed well enough). It is more important while keeping sps corals but all corals will benefit, if you decide to go down that route
Ah ok, is that the case for lps and SpS too ? My aim is to enhance the growth of my coral
Great, I will have a look into just some coral food or growth supplements then, thank you!Adding trace elements is only desirable if they are gettign depleted. Too much can be as bad as too little.
If you want to try a trace element method without measuring, pick a reliable brand and dose it and look for a benefit. Tropic Marine trace elements might be a decent place to start.
