The skeleton of corals is made up of alternating layers of calcium carbonate and layers rich in amino acids, which perform many important functions. They stabilize the skeletal material, avoid transformation into a totally different crystal structure, and also help decrease the negative effect of phosphate on coral growth. Amino acids also serve as food for most corals and beneficial bacteria. There is ample evidence that around coral reefs the desired Amino acids occur in the water itself and are deposited on freshly formed calcium carbonate. The type of amino acids in solution and their relative proportions show a remarkable similarity to the amino acids in coral skeletons. Therefore, it is highly likely that corals will find these amino acids from the surrounding water, which come from the many different life forms on coral reefs.

An aquarium system lacks the biodiversity of a huge reef and a lack of the right amino acids can arise.About Salifert Coralline Amino Acids There is sufficient evidence that some amino acids are very essential, while other amino acids negatively affect the stability and growth of corals . Saliferts Amino Coral contains all amino acids in the correct proportions just like in coral skeletons. All amino acids that have a negative effect on the stability and growth of the coral skeleton have been omitted. Salifert is currently the only company that can produce such a well-defined formulation Coralline amino acids allow corals to form a stable framework or backbone. The negative effects of phosphate have also decreased significantly and all ingredients are pharmaceutical grade or better. This ensures that no unwanted elements are added to your valuable aquarium.
