PRODUCT: Growth & Colour BOOSTER (Platinum Reef)
Platinum Reef

Growth & Colour BOOSTER is an exceptional supplement, which contributes to the sound development, growth and correct coloration mainly of corals, but also of other marine organisms, in a positive, fast and natural way. Originally it belongs to the product concept Platinum Reef, but it is in essence a separate, widely compatible product.

Growth & Colour BOOSTER (Platinum Reef Conception)

BOOSTER

Growth & Colour BOOSTER is an exceptional supplement, which contributes to the sound development, naturally fast growth and correct colouration mainly of corals, but also of other marine organisms, in a positive, fast and natural way.

Originally G&C BOOSTER belongs to the Platinum Reef conception, but it can be used as an independent, widely compatible product.

Specification

The exceptionality of this supplement lies in the fact that the inorganic trace elements are present in a form of organic complexes just like in oceanic environment, which maximizes their bioavailability for all marine organisms.

Growth & Colour BOOSTER is not identical to the combination of SOL DOM + SOL TRACE supplements (if used in the frame of Marine Line conception) or Trace Elements PP + CoraCold PP + all CS CoraDOM supplements (Vitamins, Carbo H, Amino A, Poly A + Fatty A). The reason is the difference in the absolute concentrations and concentration ratios of the complex acids, as well as in the character production method.

As far as dissolved inorganic and organic matter is concerned, Growth & Colour BOOSTER provides the corals as well as other living organisms with sufficient amounts of the necessary inorganic and organic nutrients to achieve:

  • long-lasting sound development
  • natural fast growth
  • proper colouration
  • resistance against diseases

Composition

24 minor and trace elements
(B, Ba, Be, Br, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, F, Fe, I, Ir, Mn, Mo, Ni, Rb, Re, Ru, Se, Sr, Ti, V, W, Zn)

6 noble metals

3 marine vitamins

8 marine carbohydrates

21 amino-acids and their derivatives

2 mixtures of humic and fulvic acids (complex acids)

10 fatty acids

64 constituents in total

Taking Advantage of Product Compatibility

As the Growth & Colour BOOSTER is fully compatible with the other CS additive conceptions, it is possible to experiment a little bit - for instance as follows:

Experimenting with different form of inorganic and organic nutrition supply

The example bellow shows an alternative to the standard Marine Line conception. SOL TRACE and SOL DOM are replaced with G&C BOOSTER. The level of seawater chemistry control is lowered, but the change itself can be positive due to the better biological absorption rate of supplied nutrition.

Combining day-to-day maintenance with ad-hoc interventions

The example bellow shows an alternative to any additive conception, using G&C BOOSTER as the additive for replenishment of inorganic and organic nutrients daily. Selected Profi Plus products are applied on top either as an experiment or for particular reason.

Much much more options exist - on-top application of Boron, Strontium etc. for instance.

(1) - many health problems of corals is caused by lack of essential nutrients and may be treated well with their early replenishment. This approach helps only at the initial phase of problem development. At the later phase CS CoraSound MULTI can help - read more...

(2) - CS CoraDOM Vitamins application provokes immediate coral polyps expansion - great animal-safe showcase product.

Dosing

Suggested

20 ml / 100 l of water / week

Overdose
symptoms
and
troubleshooting

Exceedingly high concentration of mineral and organic nutrients. may cause a loss of bright coral colouration, unnatural colour changes - usually browning - and unwanted algae and cyanobacteria colonies growth. Limit the dosage or even temporarily interrupt product application and wait until the situation improves. The unfavourable situation may last even weeks, because the algae for example have metabolic nutrient reserves for a rather long time.

First-time
application

If your tank is NOT highly populated with invertebrates, the initial dosage should be ca 5 ml / 100 l water / week. The dosage may be then gradually increased, as long as none of the above mentioned overdose symptoms occur. The optimal dosage in highly populated tanks may be even higher than suggested one and its adjustment is always a matter of experimentation.
