Red Sea Iodine+ Trace Colours A 500ml







  • Description

Coral Colours A Supplement is a part of the complete range of complementary major, minor and trace element complexes which together provide the needs of corals.

Iodine, Bromine and Fluorine supplement that promotes the Pink colours in corals. 


The halogens act both as antioxidants and oxidative agents within the soft tissue and mucus layer of corals, reducing the possibility of coral bleaching.


In active reef systems, these elements are depleted quickly due to their high oxidative abilities and reactivity with organic materials. Iodine and bromine are related to the pink chromo-protein (pocciloporin).


To ensure coral health, the ppm level of these elements must be maintained within a narrow band and therefore should only be dosed according to a measured requirement of the aquarium. For optimal results, dose according to a measured uptake of Iodine using an Iodine test kit. An easier alternative us to dose in proportion to the dosing of Red Sea's Reef Foundation A (Calcium and Strontium) supplement.


For best results in displaying coral colours, use Red Sea's N03: P04-X
