Free-Form Amino Complex in Ideal Ratios for all Marine & Freshwater Fishes
Free-form amino acids:
1. Encourage vibrant coloration.
2. Provide the building blocks of protein in ideal ratios to encourage the formation of new tissue, speeding up growth rates.
Acts as an attractant to encourage finicky fishes to begin eating new foods.
Formulated based on data compiled by ichthyologists on tissue research tissue of fishes.
Does not require refrigeration.
Amino acids are the components of proteins, and the ratios in which they occur are specific to different tissue types of organisms; the proteins, themselves, are involved in all aspects of cellular processes. Amino acids play a number of essential direct and indirect roles in all biological processes, from regulating protein utilization, to indirectly influencing neurological functioning, to the formation of pigments that give organisms their coloration, and so on; in short, they are crucial to the overall existence of all living organisms. Absence of various amino acids in the diet of an organism can have a negative impact by limiting, or “throttling”, a number of biological processes; this may lead to illness or death, and is obviously to be avoided.
Many organisms are not able to biochemically create certain amino acids from their more basic components, requiring that the organism obtain these amino acids from their foods. The advantage that MaxAmino offers aquarium hobbyists is that it is precisely formulated to provide the twenty standard amino acids in the exact same ratios in which they occur in the tissue of fishes, and in a form readily absorbed into prepared and thawed frozen foods. As such, MaxAmino is primarily intended for use as a soak to enhance the nutritional value of frozen and prepared foods. It increases the protein percentage of foods by 10 mg per ml applied. Additionally, soaking new foods in MaxAmino encourages finicky fishes to begin feeding, indicating that it enhances the flavor of these foods.
MaxAmino does not require refrigeration, however storage in a cool, shaded area will prolong the stability of the amino acids. Refrigeration will maximize the shelf-life of the product.
Instructions and Guidelines
Shake product well before using. Measure the desired amount of food out and place it into a clean container, such as a small cup or bowl; rinse frozen foods under a stream of (preferably purified) water until they have thawed and any solution in which they were frozen is washed away, then place food into container. Add MaxAmino drop-by-drop to the container, saturating the food, but do not add so much of the liquid that extra remains; in other words, do not add a capful of the product to a pinch of food and then add the entirety of this to the aquarium. Allow 2 - 5 minutes for MaxAmino to soak into food, then add food to aquarium in an area of moderate water flow away from pump intakes or overflows, or as desired; this is effectively accomplished by scooping the saturated food out of the container with a small spoon and placing it in the desired location inside the aquarium. Discard any unused MaxAmino left over in container. Note that saturated food has a tendency to sink more quickly than does “dry” food, however it is also easier for fish to consume due to the fact that it is softened and at room temperature (frozen foods). Foods allowed to soak for considerably longer than 5 minutes may easily fall apart when exposed to moderate water flow; this may be of benefit when the aquarium contains species of fish that prefer small food particles to relatively larger ones.
Add no more than 5 ml total per 50 gallons of water in the entire aquarium system daily for the first four weeks of use; thereafter, the dosage may be gradually increased as desired. Starting out at a low dosage and gradually increasing it with time will allow the biological filtration in the aquarium to adjust to the increase in nutrients and prevent water quality from deteriorating. Some hobbyists may choose to employ MaxAmino with every feeding, whereas others may prefer to employ it once daily or less frequently. MaxAmino does not have any free phosphate, however it is composed of amino acids, the precursors of protein, and therefore contributes to the concentration of organic material entering the aquarium with each feeding; therefore, use the product only as directed and decrease frequency of usage if the presence of cyanobacteria or nuisance algae increases during periods following addition of the product to the aquarium. Do not add this product directly to aquarium water.

Spherical Phosphate-Adsorption Media for Use in All Freshwater & Marine Aquaria
Advanced adsorbent of phosphate and silicate; provides rapid results.
May be used on an on-going basis as part of a sensible nutrient-control program.
Spherical shape and porosity maximize reactive surface area; promotes reactivity and efficiency by maximizing contact time and minimizing tendency to pack and channel water, and outperforms competing non-spherical phosphate-adsorbent media.
Recommended usage is 2 g of Extrax Phos per 1 US-gallon (3.8 L) in aquarium; 600 grams will adsorb up to 20 mg/L phosphate in 300 US-gallons (1,136 L).
Does not release phosphate, silicate, or soluble compounds into aquarium system .
Safe for use in all freshwater and marine aquaria, including freshwater planted systems and reef systems.
Immediately Improves Water Quality in all Reef, Marine and Freshwater Aquaria
Immediately improves water quality in all manner of aquaria by enhancing the rate of particulate and dissolved organic material decomposition, enabling the constituents to be more effectively removed with protein skimming, activated carbon, and other means of biological and chemical filtration.
Safe for use with all fishes, invertebrates, and plants.
Particularly useful: in heavily-stocked, heavily-fed aquaria; during "hiccups" in water
quality in which the elevated concentration of organic material in the aquarium would negatively impact the health of the inhabitants.
Reacts completely; leaves no residual.

Ionically Balanced Powered Calcium & Alkalinity for all marine fish & reef aquaria
The calcium-bearing component of a two-part method for dosing calcium and carbonates (the substances largely responsible for increasing alkalinity (”buffering capacity”)) in the same ratio as that found in natural seawater.
Benefits reef-building organisms such as corals, clams, calcareous algae, etc.
Simplifies calcium and alkalinity maintenance; economical for particularly large systems.
Contains no phosphate, silicate, or organic material.
