Red Sea Reef Colours D (Trace), the Bioactive Mineral Supplement, available from Swell UK.
Trace element complex that promote the Purple / Blue colours in Corals.
Reef Colours D Supplement is part of the complete range of complementary major and minor & trace elements complexes which together provide the needs of Corals. Reef Colours D supplement contains a blend of Trace elements that are associated with many biological processes, one of them being the production of purple / blue pigments in the soft Coral tissue.
To ensure Coral health, the ppm level of these elements must be maintained within a narrow band and therefore should only be dosed accordingly to a measured requirement of the aquarium. For optimal results, dose in proportion to the dosing of RedSea's Foundation A (Ca/Sr). For best results in displaying Coral colours use RedSea's NO3:PO4-X.
Red Sea’s research into the metabolic demand of SPS, LPS & soft corals has identified 27
minor and trace elements that in addition to the foundation elements are present in the
skeleton and soft tissue of all corals. These elements are known as important bio-catalysts
in thousands of metabolic processes in marine organisms and therefore must be readily
available in all reef aquariums. Many of them however become toxic in concentrations
above the levels found in natural sea water and therefore their correct dosage is crucial to
the long term success of any reef aquarium.
Our research has identified 4 distinct groups of elements with similar biological functions
as well as a direct connection to specific coral pigments that enabled the division of the
27 elements into the 4 supplements Reef Colors A, B, C & D. Reef Colors supplements
have been formulated such that the ratio of the elements in each supplement are the
same as are found in the combined coral skeleton and soft tissue.
All of the Reef Colors should be supplemented regularly to all LPS and SPS aquariums
without connection to the colors of the specific corals or whether the water parameters
(levels of foundation elements and algae nutrients) are set for enhanced coloration or
