ZeoVit Coral Vitalizer - Coral Food

ENHANCE YOUR CORALS: ZeoVit Coral Vitalizer and the corals you never knew you had

  “Miracle juice? Exaggeration? Absolutely not!”

Unlike many coral foods, Zeovit Coral Vitalizer interacts with your corals by directly satisfying their carbon demands and reducing the need to harbor massive densities of tissue zooxanthellae (symbiotic algae). Resulting is an increased expression of true tissue coloration. Additionally, Coral Vitalizer puts many hard corals into a continuous “feed mode”, even during the daylight hours. Ever see Acropora showing off sweeper tentacles all day long? Perhaps you would like to; Coral Vitalizer can help.
The unique qualities of Coral Vitalizer set it apart from an ever increasing assortment of generic coral foods, providing nearly instant and unmistakable gains for you, the discerning aquarist. Coral Vitalizer contains no Phosphates or Nitrates.

Use Coral Vitalizer to:

Feed all corals without polluting the water
Reduce the reliance of corals on tissue browning zooxanthellae for their energy needs
Encouraging nighttime polyp extension even during daylight hours
Increase growth and deepen colors and contrasts
Aids with stress reduction of newly added corals

Dose: 1 drop | 25 gallons per day
Available in 10, 50 and 100 mL

Back In Stock - Digital Aquatics Reef Keeper LITE System LEVEL 1 (BASIC)

We just received limited quantity of Digital Aquatics Reef Keeper LITE System Level 1 controllers.
These will not last so get yours now.

Product Information:

The new ReefKeeper Lite is a big change to business as usual! It's small, expandable and perfect for nano tanks, beginners, and people looking for a mid level controller!

The ReefKeeper Lite or RKL as it's known here, has a 5 (mechanical) button interface and a larger 16 x 2 LCD display for easy readability. While some of the advanced modules and features of the RKE are not available for the RKL, it will have more than enough power to monitor and control single tank systems, as well as small to mid sized tanks alike!

The RKL is the only controller under $100 that offers four outlets and temperature control while still providing the customer an upgrade path as their system or needs grow!

With up to four modules, this new controller is perfect for streamlining your tank without breaking the bank!

NEW - Expandability!
The RKL can interface with up to 4 modules in almost any configuration you'd like. (Limited to PC4s, SL1s and MLCs)

NEW - Data reporting
The RKL can report the min, max and average over the last 1 hour for all inputs and outputs!

NEW - Improved 5 button interface
The RKL has a 5 button interface; a big improvement over traditional 3 button interfaces that are currently used for entry level controllers!

NEW - 16 dedicated timers You can set up to 16 timers with day of week capability!

NEW - Audible and Visual feedback The RKL offers a first for an entry level controller with audible and visual feedback!

NEW - 16 dedicated alarms
Get informed! Set alarms to alert you of almost any event in your system that you need to know about

NEW - Control functions
Improved controller, multi-timer, light, lunar, and pump controls help keep you in complete control of your system!

Upgradeable Firmware with USB Adapter Updating the RKL via USB when new software features are released is easy and straight forward. Better yet it's included at no extra cost!

Night Mode - Independently Programmable Night mode can be configured independent of your light configuration so that moonlights and pumps can be adjusted in the evening times.

Wavemaker There are 2 wavemaker cycles in the ReefKeeper Lite, cycles A and b. When a channel is designated as a pump you can select a wavemaker cycle A or B. The two alternate opposite each other to simulate wave motion. Under the wavemaker setup you choose how long you want each cycle time to be by dialing an A/B cycle time. During night mode the cycle can be turned off to give a calming affect.

Standby/Feed mode
Just as in all Digital Aquatics ReefKeeper controllers, the RKL has a Standby mode that can be programmed from 1 to 59 minutes. When in "Standby" ReefKeeper Lite turns off the powerheads and sump and skimmer pumps that are programmed to be off during standby mode for the set time or until "Standby" is backed out of.

Standby/Feed mode helps reduce the bio load on the tank by maximizing the food eaten by fish and corrals and minimizing waste. Food will not get whisked away into the sump filter and to dead spots in your tank. Standby mode is also useful when it is time to perform maintenance on your tank and you need all the water pumps to be temporarily turned off.

Head unit can be mounted in a number of ways for the custom professional look
The display unit has several mounting options to accommodate different configurations. It can be mounted flush to your hood/cabinet for a sleek look by cutting out a rectangle. It can also be mounted easily to any flat surface with or without the mounting tabs.

Splash proof face plate
The front of the remote display has a custom faceplate so that a little water on it doesn't cause any problems. The unit menu system can be navigated with wet hands without any problems.

Internal backup battery for clock and settings The internal battery will last for years keeping the time and settings of the ReefKeeper Lite. A power outage will not require the adjustments that traditional light timers need after the power is restored.

Simple menu system for easy configuration
The menu system is an easy-to-use interface that allows you to setup the ReefKeeper Lite to meet your specific needs. The 5 buttons under the display are used to navigate through the menu for setting up which features you want to link to which outlets and other setup.

ZEOVIT - Coral Snow

NEED CLARITY? Coral Snow is the liquid filter media for crystal clear water “Unsightly water discoloration has met its match”

Coral Snow naturally addresses several issues that plague modern reef tanks – yellow or hazy water, stubborn nutrient accumulations and red slime algae.

After an initial cloudiness, Coral Snow leaves the water column crystal clear, almost luminous; your fish and corals will appear as though they’re suspended in thin air! Coral Snow is non-toxic and will not negatively impact livestock if accidentally overdosed.
Coral Snow can also be used as a nutrient carrier to increase direct absorption of vitamins, minerals and elements by the coral. As a highly absorbent Bio-Clay, Coral Snow will sponge up any additives that are mixed with it prior to dosing. Corals have a natural tendency to trap these clay particles in their mucous to be consumed. This is a much more effective method of delivering these elements to the coral than traditional dosing to the water column.

Use Coral Snow to:

Neutralize undesirable acids
Incrementally address the baseline problems that cause Red Slime algae
Promote incredible water clarity overnight
Entice additional polyp extension from corals
As a vitamin or element carrier for direct absorption

Dose: 1 mL | 25 gallons per day
Available in 250, 500 and 1000 mL

Drastically enhance colors and contrast in all corals

Aids with stress reduction of newly added corals
