Hyper Coral Food from AquaLife is a new liquid aquarium supplement that adds essential amino acids that corals need, but which won’t be skimmed out by the protein skimmer. AquaLife Hyper Coral Food is the first aquarium additive from Sicce that will be distributed alongside Sicce products. Sicce Hyper Coral Food is also the first that we know of that explicitly uses L-amino acids which are actively taken up by corals, but which excludes the ‘D’ version of those same nutrients which are only taken up by cyanobacteria and reactive with protein skimmers.
We’ve seen a lot of liquid coral foods and amino acid supplements come and go, offering vitamins, amino acids, micronutrients and other essential elements. What we find interesting about Hyper Coral is its use of molecular chirality to deliver more nutrition to the corals and less to the protein skimmer. AquaLife Hyper Coral Food should become available in the next month or so, with the 100ml bottle retailing for about $29 and the 250ml bottle selling for $49.
