Elos Omega (Amino Acid)
Elos Omega was the first amino acid integrator available to the market. Does not contain phosphate based preservatives. Normally amino acids are supplied to corals by feeding on plankton, bacterial plankton and "micro" plankton that is usually absent in an aquarium. Amino acids are also supplied by the zooxantellae, mono-cellular algae, which is included in the endoderm cells of the corals and lives symbiotically with many coral species. This provides the coral with glycerin, amino acids and carbohydrates. Unfortunately in some aquariums this activity is reduced, sometimes intentionally. In our original studies we observed that the use of selected amino acids and vitamins is a much more effective and convenient way of replicating the function of zoo-plankton in the aquarium. Certain corals, mainly SPS, respond very quickly to the combination of Omega and Pro Skimmer.
