Product Information




Marc Weiss SPS Coral Grow, 6 oz

SPS Coral Grow. The only hard coral growth enhancer that's backed by hard science. Enhances ability of SPS (small polyp stony) corals to nourish themselves as they do in nature. Economical natural dry formula, not fish food, dissolved in water containing biocidal preservatives that can damage beneficial microorganisms and zooxanthellae. Obvious results, usually within two weeks.

Hastens growth of frags.

Non polluting, excess consumed by skimmer.

Small polyp stony corals (SPS) primarily eat detrital aggregates colonized by beneficial bacterioplankton adhering to corals mucus layer. There is also a fungal element to the symbiotic mix. SPS farm their own food in their mucus layer, especially in recesses in their structure. SPS are carnivorous and high protein microbes support growth and health in them. SPS do not appear to digest phytoplankton (algae). They culture their own, called zooxanthellae. Their internal zooxanthellae are nourished through the mucus by the by products of bacterioplankton. Zooplankton are sparse in nature and make up a small amount of the corals nutritional intake. Bacteria in the mucus layer are required to degrade it first. In time the bacterioplankton fix and reduce nitrates produced by this rotting. These large pieces of coral nutrients add to the pollution in the aquarium until it is consumed. Bacterial enriched coral mucus also contains beneficial organisms that may eat, crowd out or provide antibiotic by-products against coral pathogens.

SPS Coral Grow provides a bio film that adheres to and enhances the corals mucus layer. This bio-film provides an enhanced environment for increased bacterioplankton colonization allowing stony corals to feed themselves more efficiently. Feeding with coral foods may become unnecessary. This eliminates pollution caused by excess food. The use of the appropriate trace elements and water conditioners should be continued. SPS Coral Grow is a natural cultured detrital aggregate with no biocidal preservatives as are needed in liquid coral foods. Results are usually seen within two weeks. Directions: Amount used depends on bio-load which is the quantity of corals in the aquarium. A starting guide is one-half teaspoon per hundred gallons every other day. Heavily stocked aquariums can consume one teaspoon or more daily. The excess will be picked up by the skimmer. Mix portion to be used in some reef aquarium water and pour into an area with current to disperse it. It's not important that all of it initially dissolves.

Contents: 6 oz., 170.4 grams of controlled cultured detrital aggregate. Store in a cool, dry place after opening. Tighten cap well. A refrigerator is ideal. Avoid extended freezing.
