    It claims the following "reef solution is the ideal all-natural multi-purpose additive created for enhancing the marine aquarium environment. Outstanding results for both reef and fish only aquariums. In reef systems polyp extensions on corals is phenomenal. In fish only aquariums, color returns to even the faded specimens. With regular use fish become vibrant and healthy"

    Does it specify exactly what it's adding to the system. I wouldnt add anything to my tank unless I knew 100% what it was and knew I needed it (by testing for it)

    I dont see a product name or is the name "Reef solution additive"

    But I agree with Brian I would not add any thing to my tank chem wise or what have you. With out knowing what it is and whats in it for chems. you never know whats in some of this low end stuff.

    I saw this stuff at one of the shops here that just read "reef balance" for the nano reef then on the back only had hype on how well the chem works on your tanks bio system calming in days you can see brighter colors and will promote growth in corals and health of your live stock. But never did say what was in it. Not once did it say a list of elements or show a table other than the hype there was just an address in Japan. so I say do not trust in bottle hype you might regret it in the long run :Cheers:

    It's really up to you but, like I said I never add anything that I'm not testing for.

    As long as you are doing even semi-regular water changes, those trace elements should be at the correct levels.
