    What do you want to achieve using this? Are you having a full reef tank like LPS and SPS?

    To be honest using it on a softie tank only will be a little waist of money and ill rather just dose Fuel.

    Reefbooster and CoralVits are used together after a 4 week cycle on Biodigest and Bioptim.

    Reefbooster and CoralVits are a food source and needs to be dosed with caution, making sure you use the correct vials for the liter system. Over dosing may cause serious algae blooms.

    Stronti+ Iodi+ i dose with my Biodigest and Bioptim every 15 days.

    My tank has no algae growth, i over feed and my tank is over stocked without any issues. Im running LPS and 2 or 3 SPS corals witch is still frags but they growth rate is insane.

    Every 15 days i also dose Special Blend, not on the same day as Prodibio but the week there after, i dose 2ml Fuel everyday and 10ml Phytoplankton every evening...

    i have a BoyuTL550
    corals are:
    Clam, Frogspawn 2 open Brains, Elegance, Torch, hammer, Kenyan tree, star polyps and mushrooms

    they seem to look abit dull, david came around to rescape and check up and the Salanity was bit low, but other than that they have been going strong,

    all i have been dosing is Seachem Zooplankton,
    i do buffer calcium and Magnesium, and constantly check water paramaters, i however do not have a refractometer so i could not keep an eye on salanity, however ill be looking into that.

    so all ide like to do is help the corals along, give them the nutrients they need to keep going strong and glow like they used to.

    what do you reccomend?

    Do you target feed the Zooplankton?

    Some nice LPS, you can go with Prodibio, you can buy the vials singular at Aquatic Vision in Brackenfell and Perky Pets in Diepriver...

    Start of by using Bioptim and Biodigest every 15 days and Aquavitro Fuel every week.

    No not a real waste

    I also do the same once a week, just add it. I have ordered the Live Zooplankton from @Andre@ReefAquatics, the Seachem one is dead zoo.

    ok the wife just picked up some Fuel,
    and some ProBio BioDigest, Reef Booster, Coral Vits.

    with the Fuel, do you just throw it into the top of the main water coloum?
    and how much should be used for a TL550??

    Wow awesome wife :lol:

    You just add it to the water coloum. Break the vial on both side over the tank and rinse it a few times in the tank water

    Only add Bioptim and Biodigest, after 15 days you add another vial of each and once you done the full 4 week cycle you can add Reefbooster and Coral vits, remember to turn off your skimmer when adding reefbooster and coral vits for around 4 hours, other wise you skimmer will just skim everything out...

    With Fuel you add 5 ml for every 80l twice a week if i remember correctly.

    There will be instructions on the bottle. You can add it into your display tank or into your sump...
