Complex of free-form amino acids in the same ratios found within tissues of stony corals.
Widely used by professional coral farmers to increase growth rate and coloration
Beneficial to all corals (stony and soft), as well as solitary and colonial polyps.
Free-form amino acids:
1. Provide the building blocks of coral tissue in ideal ratios to encourage the formation of
2. Encourage new tissue growth to repair damage incurred during fragmentation and
3. Encourage growth by budding and fission.
4. Encourage vibrant coloration.
Formulated based on data compiled by oceanographers researching coral tissue profiles.

Brightwell Aquatics CoralAminō is a complex that closely approximates ratios of amino acids present in many species of stony corals; the formulation is based upon extensive research conducted on tropical coral reefs by oceanographic researchers. While the ratios of amino acids present in coral tissue vary between species, general ratios are approximately maintained, enabling an effective average to be created that will benefit not only stony corals, but also soft corals, solitary, and colonial polyps (e.g. Xenia, Anthelia, Zoanthus, Discoma, Actinodiscus, etc.). The amino acids are present in their most elementary form (”free-form”) rather than being accounted for by their presence in a food or complex nutrient; in this fashion, they are readily available to corals and their allies. The main benefit of this quality is the ease in which corals can assimilate the amino acids into their tissue for the purpose of growth and tissue repair. Secondary benefits of some amino acids are their role in enhancing the coloration of corals.
Corals maintained under optimal chemical and environmental conditions are able to reproduce (both sexually and asexually) more rapidly when the required nutrients are available. The presence of these free-form amino acids is particularly important to corals that have undergone, or will undergo, fragmenting or other means of propagation in which some amount of tissue is damaged.
