Having used Fauna Marin's new supplement Reef Vitality for 2 months, I will pen my opinions on it. First of, Reef Vitality is marketed as something unique i.e. a compound of coral food, supplements and in the words of Fauna Marin's owner, something called "organic biopolymers". All this is a little over my head but the proof is in the pudding and having used Fauna Marin's other products with success, I decided to try it. The stuff is packed into small capsules just like the vitamins that you take. One has to open the capsule and dump the powdery contents into a small container filled up with your tank water before giving it a good stir and pouring it back into your tank. I use one capsule every four days for my tank which is 400 litres in total tank volume. The effects were initially mixed when I dosed Reef Color Elements (another FM product) on the same day as Reef Vitality - this resulted in bare patches in some of my SPS corals as flesh was stripped but no STN or RTN occured. Hence, it is advised that one should dose reef color elements on a seperate day from the day you dose reef vitality. After 2 months, the overall health and colour of the majority of my SPS corals has improved, particularly for my pink table millepora and red table hyacinthus. My centrepiece which is a Fiji tricolour valida was looking good too until recently when I reduced my salinity a little too fast and the colour "ran" - hopefully it will get back to its old colouration with time and some TLC.
