So my LFS just started stocking the full range of Aquaforest products. I run a 150 mainly SPS tank and I am not pleased at all with coloration. I picked up the Pro BioS, carbon, Coral B, V, and E, Iodine, Potassium, Strontium, Iron, Flourine and the Heavy metals. I set up the carbon in a Phosban reactor and I started my first dosing today. I am at about 2/3 the recommended dosage. I have picture documentation and I am starting a log to document everything I do and see. Is there anything that I should watch out for starting this regiment? Also, what do you think I can expect from these products? If there is any information you need from me feel free to ask.

First of all - thank You for choose our products.

Can You create Thread of Your tank? After We could see some photos - how big corals You have, what corals You have - It will be easier to help

You choose good way - to dose2/3 recommend dosing. You can also dose 1/2 dose.

Regards,
Aquaforest

So I created a tank thread with pictures on the Aquaforest forum. I will post the link below. Any information or suggestions regarding getting the most out of your system please let me know. I want to have the coloration and growth that I see on all of these Aquaforest tanks.

Hy,
i am very interested in the aquaforest products.
Have you done a test (triton) to check the values of salt?
I'd like to know the values of the individual elements before starting.
thanks

I'm from Australia and we have only just this week have had your products land here and I'm very interested in inplementing your products on my already established tank.
I have a few questions, what would be the best products to begin implementing?
I am interested in switching to your Reef salt and using the kh buffer, calcium, magnesium and minerals sales along with components strong for dosing.
If I was to start a new tank or completely switch to all aquaforest products do you have a tank philosophy/ method that you recommend in regards to filtration, maintenance, dosing ect? any more info would be appreciated as if the pictures of tanks that implement your products are anything to go by then I am very excited to see what success I can have.

Hello,
Sounds like a great plan to me, have you had a chance to review the product guide(pdf)? I will attach a link When reading on the system, you will want to query on the Probiotic Program for a sps type tank. The basis of this system is to use Probiotic Reef Salt, Pro Bio S(bac source) and NP Pro(carbon source). This helps the tank to run low nutrients, so that the corals and fish can have optimal health. For advanced coloration of corals, you can use AF Energy, AF Build, AF Vitality, AF Aminomix, and AF Power Food. These supplements help the corals to have these vibrant colors you see. As far as trace minerals go, you would encompass that through the use of the Macro and Micro minerals and dose at equal ratios.
If your tank has a higher bioload, you can also use siporax to create more surface area for bacteria to grow. Additionally, you may want to use Zeomix too. Most users are having great success using what is referred to as the stacking method. One single fluidized reactor, with Zeomix on the bottom, AF Carbon stacked on top of the Zeomix, and finally AF Phos Minus on top of the AF Carbon. This helps the system to run very low in nutrients, in cases where the bioload is higher than normal, or the tank is run with little live rock or no sand, as they are also beneficial for denitrifying bacteria to grow. Cheers

It is not necessary to turn the skimmer off when dosing ANY of the Aquaforest products. Cheers

thanks for the tips I might start off with the macro and micro elements and then possibly strary the pro biotic system further down the track and possibly the other additives. my system isnt sps heavy and I find it hard to get some of the real high end colorful sps and mine are your more basic colors so for the moment id be happy for the corals to get a good quality salt mix with all micro and macro elements along with good supplementary dosing.
I think the more complex dosing ect would be good for when this or my possible future tank is more sps heavy.
out of curiosity what exactly is the reef mineral salts that is incorporated into the macro element regime. currently I only dose alk cal and mag so what is the mineral salts and how do you dose/test for them to determine how much needs to be dosed? is it based off the cal/mag uptake?

I use AF Power Food, I often forget to mention it because I use if sparingly. I feed my tank very heavy with fish food, so to me I find it not necessary For tanks with lower bioloads it works very well to supplement the corals. Cheers
