Always used it

Comments: I guess you cant really tell if this works or not... All I can say I always used it and have had success. I dosed 1 cap per week in my 75 Gal (sometimes 2 caps per week, and cut it down to 1 cap as soon as I saw hair algae popping up).
Now in my 135 I also use 1 or 2 caps per week...
Crazy polyp extension!

Comments: My toadstools and zoas have never been happier! I never really had a problem with the brilliance of color with my fish, but the product does claim to keep them healthy too and they are.
This is the only additive I use every other day (besides calcium and alk maintenance).
Ecosystem Reef Solution
(Posted on 8/25/09)
Comments: Had a healthy established saltwater tank loaded with about 30+/- different SPS and LPS corals and a few fish for about four years before deciding to use a trace elements solution outside of my typical/monthly waterchanges. This was about five years ago. Was very pleased with condition of the tank and didn't think I needed anything else, but was surprised at the increase in coral polyp size and some growth after deciding to use Ecosystem Reef Solution. Primarily, polyps and feeding extensions of all types of corals almost doubled in size over a period of one to three months. That really surprised me as I thought my corals were in top feeding shape. Didn't do anything different to the tank other than add Ecosystem Reef Solution. All fish and coral foods and amounts remained the same as well. Didn't see any increase in any type of algae which is a huge plus. However, I've added a 90 gallon reef setup and would like to see a list of ingredients and amounts on the Ecosystem bottle so I can fine tune/adjust the amount of calcium, magnesium, strontium, iodine, etc...if those things are acually included in the Eco solution. Thus giving it four stars instead of five while price has gone up a couple of bucks over last year or so. I would still recommend using a seperate and occasional coral repair/growth trace elements solution specifically for those fragging corals or buying them after experimenting with this over last two years. My reef care policy has been to use trace elements and products in moderation gradually over time, and would never recommend throwing a lot of products in my tanks, and believe that's been part of my success as well as weekly water testing.
I would highly recommend Ecosystem Reef Solution for those with saltwater/coral tanks.

Comments: I used a small bottle as a test based on a recommendation. within days of using this product, I had more active and vibrant soft coral and the fish got slightly more colorful. I highly recommend this as a compliment to a 2 part supplement/buffer system.
Best of the Best

Comments: I have been using this additive for a few years now and to me its the best one out of all of them. The polyp extensions are amazing and the colors of the fish are amazing as well!
