    Coral Shop Supplements Trickle Into US

    Coral Shop products are making their way to the U.S. thanks to our friends at distributor, Sea Side Aquatics. The brand is relatively unknown in the States, but has grown in popularity overseas. Over the past few months we’ve had the chance to try nearly every supplement product from the Czech manufacturer and we’re impressed.

    Coral Shop offers your standard two part fare, along with a variety of trace element and amino acid solutions. Many of their products do overlap, but allow control to the finest detail, or premixed solutions for those wanting to get just their fins wet. We also like that the large 1 Liter bottles makes it easy to automate their dosing over longer periods of time. Simply drill a hole in the cap and connect to your dosing pump. In fact, Coral Shop recommends this on many of their products to ensure stability.

    Some of our favorites of the line are shown above. From right to left:

    • DispoPhos
      • An iron based liquid PO4 remover that precipitates phosphates on the spot.
    • CoraDom Amino
      • A blend of amino acids to target ‘low nutrient’ tanks. The polyp extension effect is always great.
    • NitraClean
      • This product appears to be a mixed carbon source aimed at reducing Nitrates. We’ve slowly worked into our dosing regimen and are experimenting as we type this.
    • Platinum Reef Booster
      • Trace elements and amino acids in one. Nice for those wishing to try balling & amino dosing without multiple additives. Has many of the same ingredients, but in different ratios as SOL Trace & SOL DOM below.
    • SOL Trace
      • 24 trace elements and 6 noble metal trace elements–it’s like balling in a bottle. Allows more control over trace element v amino acid additions.
    • SOL DOM
      • Amino Acids, Vitamins, Trace Elements, and “Complex Acids”. We’ve gotten word of some users in the EU soaking Azoox specific feeds in this solution to increase feeding response.

      I just got the aminos and coral booster yesterday. I might have to give them a try.
