as far i can find on the product it contains traces of copper but as with all zeovit stuff its kept on the qt

browns are part of the natural colour but to what extent im not sure but i have noticed when the coral comes in at first straight out of the box the colour often seems more vibrant, all you are doing with this product is tweeking the colour and im sure if your getting growth, polop extention, and nice colour the coral is doing fing

brown is not a natural colour in the wild stags are colourfull because nutrients are very very low when they turn brown its because of high nutrients phos and nitrate spur should not be used to try and turn brown corals colourfull it should only be used on corals that are all ready colourfull and it will enhance the colour even more

The reason things look "brown" in the wild is that seawater filters out red light extremely quickly. Below about 5 meters there's not a massive amount of light from the red end of the spectrum left. This makes everything look washed out and dull and is why on my underwater photography gear I have 2 strobes (flashes) that cost over €1000 each :cry: to put the full range of the light spectrum back into the photos. Our tanks don't have this problem with depth and look great with the light we display them under!

What about the ones near the surface Haggis ?
Would you see the same colours in a natural reef that you would in say a Zeovit system ?



PS. I was only joking with Robbie..

i think a lot of corals in aquariums look totally fake and plastic with all these aditives in the tanks...

peter if you go diving where these corals come from in the wild you will understand why we strive for the colours we do brown or drab colours are a sign that your corals are not doing well the growth rates may still be good but imo i try to achieve the true colour of the corals i keep.

Zeovit is more natural than you think you keep your water as close to nsw kh 6.5-7.5 mg 1280-1320 ca 380-420 nitrate and phos undetectable levels whats more natural than that?
