Before you rush out and buy Seachem’s new line of “things you must have for your reef”. Be warned. Most if not all of their products are just a re-hash of similiar products they already sell, with one or two things added that make them “must have”. Fancy labeling and “mac” stylized graphics abound on the Aqua-vitro. Along with fancy names called “alpha, eight.four” (what the heck?) This is Seachem’s premium line, which means you be paying a premium price for things you don’t need added to your water that you can’t already get cheaper elsewhere.
For example, they are offering a product called “fuel,” which is a carbon source and amino acid source, which includes some vitamins. Now, with vitamins you could add Selcon to your food feeding, finely minced garlic and vitamin C (lime juice) are great ways to do this. With Seachem’s line, you are enriching your tank water with all the vitamins, not the food. Sorry Seachem, we are not convinced that you need to enrich the tank water.
Update: We got to review the aquavitro line and we liked what we found. Be sure to check your LFS or online supplier to get what products that enhance your reef.Â Fuel is highly recommended.
