Red Sea New Coral Pro 22kg/660 litre Value Pack!

Red Sea is delighted to offer a new 22kg refill bag for its popular 22kg/660 litre bucket of Coral Pro Salt, providing you with a significant saving while also continuing our efforts to reduce packaging waste.

Coral Pro Salt is widely recognised as the optimal salt for SPS and LPS coral growth. This is due to both its natural properties, which provide “the living reef in every harvested grain” and to the unique formulation which is based upon years of scientific research into the requirements of corals in aquaria.

Red Sea’s research clearly shows that the formulation of Coral Pro Salt, with its elevated yet balanced levels of the foundation elements (Calcium, Carbonates and Magnesium), enables corals to maximise their growth of strong, aragonite skeletons in an energy-efficient manner and with a reduced requirement for initial supplementation of the foundation elements. This provides a cost-saving for hobbyists while delivering great results.

The new 22kg Coral Pro bag is available from all good Red Sea dealers, with a Mrp of £53.99.

Review: Koralia 3G

As specialists in the design and production of aquarium equipment since 1984, Hydor have already brought us some really useful reef aquarium kit. Their Koralia range of stream pumps is perhaps the first to spring to mind, and we were therefore most interested when they announced the launch of a ‘third generation’ range earlier this year. In this ‘hands on’ review we take a closer look at this updated model. Continue reading Review: Koralia 3G

Review: Coral Box Cloud 9 DC Skimmer

It’s been a little while since we featured a skimmer review on the site but when we spied details of this new offering from Chinese supplier Fish-Street, advertised on their website for a Summer 2015 release, we were immediately curious to see if such a competitively-priced skimmer could deliver performance to match some of the more expensive options out there. We were also curious to experience the ‘direct sale’ acquisition of a skimmer via the ‘factory to end user’ pathway used by this supplier. Continue reading Review: Coral Box Cloud 9 DC Skimmer

Whether or not your fish are common or rare, affordable or expensive, we are sure you’ll agree that they all deserve the best care to ensure their health, growth and longevity in captivity, and a key ingredient in providing for this is of course, effective nutrition.
