Red Sea Coral Colors A is a complex of halogens (Iodine, Bromine, and Fluorine). The halogens act both as antioxidants and oxidative agents within the soft tissue and mucus layer of corals, reducing the possibility of coral bleaching. Inactive reef systems, these elements are depleted quickly due to their high oxidative abilities and reactivity with organic materials. Iodine and bromine are related to the pink chroma protein (pocciloporin).
Weekly dosing - Soft Corals
Test the Color Elements every week and dose each supplement to replenish them back to the optimal levels.
Daily dosing - SPS corals
Ensure that all of the Color Elements are at optimal values and run the aquarium for 4 days at a stable salinity (compensate for evaporation daily) without adding any supplements. At the end of the 4 days test the Color Elements and calculate the 4-day dosage of each supplement to replenish them back to the optimal levels. Add the 4-day dosage to the system. Divide this 4-day dosage by 4 and use it as the daily dosage for the next week.
After a week of adding the daily dosage, test the Color Elements and calculate the adjusting dosage of each supplement to replenish back to the optimal levels.
Continue testing all of the elements every week and make adjustments to the daily dosages as required. As your corals grow or you add or remove livestock the uptake of the elements in your aquarium will gradually change. It is recommended to keep a log book of the weekly measurements and dosages.
If you miss one or more days of supplementing add the complete amount that you have missed but do not exceed the maximum recommended daily increase for any of the elements.
