Elos Pro Skimmer is a new SPS coral food which comes in a liquid form applied with an eyedropper. Pro Skimmer was developed by Elos to “provide an immediate source of energy for cellular respiration as well an important energy source beneficial for a faster biosynthesis of amino acids” to small polyp stony corals. When used with Elos’s amino acid supplement, Elos OMEGA, Elos Pro Skimmer is able to deliver substantial nutrition to coral polyps without the need for live food and even in conditions of very low dissolved organic matter.
Elos Pro Skimmer has a peculiar name that makes one think more of a protein skimmer than a coral food, but Elos must have had their reasoning for it. Perhaps it’s the lack of phosphate, or a particular effect on the skimmate, but either way Elos Pro Skimmer seems to be an interesting and different slant on feeding our corals. The carbohydrate-ladden Elos Pro Skimmer is somewhat reminiscent of Zeovit Coral Vitalizer and Red Sea’s Reef Energy, but since all companies try to keep their “coral foods” ingredients on the down-low, we guess we’ll never know for sure.
Corals spend energy for respiration, mucus production, growth and reproduction. Research has shown that the total energy demand cannot be met by photosynthesis alone. If we also consider that, through highly efficient protein skimming and fine mechanical filtration, we clear almost all organic molecules and particulate matter from our systems, we immediately realize that the the availability of nourishment inside our aquarium often become one of the limiting factor for the growth of our corals.
If we want to supply our corals the additional energy they needs to survive and, even better, flourish, we must offer them nourishment via a moltitude of sources like aminoacids, zooplankton and, in general DOM (dissolved organic matter) that they transport through cell membranes.
ELOS Pro Skimmer supply complex carbohydrate which provide an immediate source of energy for cellular respiration as well an important energy source beneficial for a faster biosynthesis of amino acids.
Usefull to recreate the water conditions in and around natural coral reefs, used in conjunction with Elos OMEGA it will help to significantly reduce the need of live food and DOM, a key step toward the reduction of the level of dissolved organics and also nitrogenous waste inside modern SPS populated aquaria.
- Original formula: reproduces the suspended colloidal matter founded in the natural seawater
- Superior nutritional profiles: high bio-available carbohydrate source
- No PO4 pollution: does not contains phosphate based preservative
Note: ELOS Pro Skimmer is a complex carbohydrate formula. In it we use only pure carbohydrate sources. Similar products available on the market contain various inorganic phosphate salts intentionally added to them as preservatives.To avoid the need of these preservatives we use mono-dose phials and we take great care to packing conditions, which are made into low contaminated controlled atmosphere.
