Proprietary blend of major, minor, and trace elements for coral color intensification. KoralColor encourages increased coloration in corals by providing numerous elements important to the formation of various biochromes (biological pigments) in plant and animal cells. Formulated specifically to provide trace quantities of elements for gradual formation of biochromes in zooxanthallate corals, clams, and their allies. 17 oz treats 12,500 gallons.

Instructions and Guidelines|
Although the tendency for many hobbyists may be to dose heavily in hopes of obtaining "brighter invertebrates faster", this product must be used as directed for maximum positive results. Do not overdose, as doing so may be detrimental to the long-term health of the aquarium inhabitants. Dose according to the following guidelines, and base the specific dosage required for an aquarium on the total volume of water in the entire system, including sumps, and water displacement by rock and bottom substrate.
Basic: Add 1 ml (approximately 20 drops) per 25 gallons of aquarium water every three days (alternatively, twice a week). If using the products in a particularly small aquarium (i.e. = 10 gallons), dilute 1 ml of KoralColor in 8 fl oz of purified water and add 1 fl oz of the resultant solution per 3 gallons twice a week (i.e. Wednesday and Saturday).
Recommended: Add one drop per 5 gallons daily. If using the product in a particularly small aquarium (i.e. = 5 gallons), dilute one drop of KoralColor in 8 fl oz of purified water and add 4 fl oz of the resultant solution per 2.5 gallons daily. It is not uncommon for the coloration of some of the lighter, "warm colored" pigments (such as yellow and pale orange) in corals and clams to take on a slightly "cooler" coloration (such as lime or aqua). If this is observed and is undesirable, decrease dosing by 25% on a weekly basis until the original color returns to the organism and then maintain the new dosage.
The general purpose of providing the elements incorporated into biochromes is not necessarily color change but color intensification. Because every aquarium presents different chemical and biological conditions, the dosage provided above are intended as general guidelines, to which the hobbyists should alter as the requirements and appearance of the aquarium inhabitants dictate. Use this product responsibly and only as directed.
Ingredients: Purified water, proprietary blend of major, minor, and trace elements known to be incorporated into biological pigments (biochromes).
KoralColor provides elements that are known to be incorporated into a number of biochromes. Used as directed, KoralColor will provide elements that may be utilized by captive marine organisms to enhance their coloration. It is not intended for use as a general supplement for maintaining natural seawater concentration of elements for the purpose of satisfying enzymatic and neurological requirements of aquarium inhabitants.
