Products of Aquaforest sp. z o.o. sp.k. (5)
“To make all marine aquariums healthy, thriving and their owners feel proud.”
Aquaforest was established in 1995. Initially we manufactured substrates and aquatic plants fertilizers for zoos, Aquariums and professional plant farms. A couple of years after the launch we started our own aquatic plants, fish and corals farms. As our cultures grew, we realized that to expand further we needed our own sea salt, foods and supplements, as no supplier could match our requirements for the high quality products. And so our quest to create top-notch products for marine aquariums began. We started to invest heavily in research to create our own unique products. Our results were so good and the products that we created worked so well, that we decided we could no longer keep them to ourselves. We began to market them. At the beginning of 2011 we started the production of AQUAFOREST ™ products for retail customers. The entire range soon gained significant attention from shops and marine aquarists.

The formula of our salts is based on the purest components created in strict laboratory conditions to satisfy the requirements of even the most demanding marine organisms. Trace mineral composition of macro elements and micro elements in our salts perfectly recreates natural sea salt to help maintain stable and natural marine environment.
Probiotic Reef Salt - fully synthetic marine salt created for cultured corals. Its formula is designed to create the best conditions for marine animals. The micronutrients and macronutrients contained in the formula fully fulfill the demand of coralsfor proper growth and pigmentation. Probiotic bacteria contained in the salt reduce the content of nitrates and phosphates, and prevents the growth of pathogenic bacteria In the marine aquarium. After dissolving the salt, freshly prepared marine water can be used immediately. When setting up new aquariums it is recommended that the first animals are placed no sooner than 10-14 days after filling the aquarium. The salt contains bromides that are found in natural marine water, so it is not recommended for use inthe ozone supported filtration systems (for such systems we recommend Reef Salt Aquaforest instead). Due to the content of probiotic bacteria the dKH value should be maintainedat 6.5-8.0. Higher values may have a negative effect on the growth of SPS corals.

Probiotics and Nitrifications
Aquaforest Probiotic Method
After years of research and tests we came up with the most efficient product formulas and we developed a unique Aquaforest Probiotic Method. As a result we are one of few who can offer products that allow harvesting even the most demanding coral species.
Fish waste, excess food, and the decomposition of animal and plant tissues produce Ammonia, Phosphates and other organic compounds that
can be harmful to sea organisms. While in the oceans unwanted waste is removed by natural cycles in a relatively easy way, in the marine aquarium it is tricky to strike the same balance.
Therefore Nitrate and Phosphate removal can be very demanding, expensive and time consuming.
Aquaforest Probiotic Method introduces carefully selected bacteria into the aquarium to help reduce the levels of harmful Nitrates and Phosphates to create the optimal conditions for keeping even the most demanding reef aquarium.
Bio S - Supplement contains nitrifying bacteria.
Pro Bio S - Highly concentrated probiotic bacteria.Supplement contains several specially selected bacteria strains. Key function is to transform phosphate and nitrates to a biomass which can be easily removed by the skimmer or consumed by corals, sponges, clams and other organisms. Bacteria will significantly reduce organic sediment accumulating in the substrate & aquascaping elements. To achieve better results it’s recommended to place in the sump an additional bacteria medium like Life Bio Fil or sand.
-Np Pro - Liquid Polymer – Media for a growth of probiotic bacteria. After addition of -NP Pro, bacteria will grow rapidly and in that way will convert unwanted nutrients like nitrate and phosphate into biomass. As a result, bacteria will be skimmed off or absorbed by corals and filter feeders, in this manner providing an additional source of natural food. Recommended to use in conjunction with Pro Bio S.
Pro BioF - Probiotic bacteria with culture medium for No3 Po4 reduction. ProBioF also stimulates the development of bacterioplankton, one of the main nutrients for all corals. It can substitute vodka-sugar-vinegar method.Dosage of one spoon for 100 liters of water a day.Nutrient medium for probiotic bacteria. Recommended for smaller aquariums, where it is not possible to install filters with polymers. ProBioF also stimulates the development of bacterioplankton, one of the main nutrients for all corals. It can substitute vodka-sugar-vinegar method.
Supplements and Coral Foods
AF Amino Mix - Essential for marine aquarium, especially for Ultra Low Nutrient Systems (ULNS). Contains concentrated amino acids, one of the main source of energy for all types of corals and filter feeders. It accelerates metabolism, aids growth as well as vitality. In natural coral reefs the concentration of total amino acids is low. It fluctuates between 200-500 nmol/l. However the latest scientific research proves that coral can adsorb up to 7 times more amino acids depending on availability. Amino acids are very easily removed by skimming process, ozone or granulated carbon. Regular dosing its highly recommended.
