Short Description: Restor 500ml/ 17oz Liquid Coral Tissue Nutritional Supplement*
Item #: BT403
Manufacturer: Brightwell Aquatics
Category: Supplements & Additives*
Subcategory: S&A, Reef Additives
Related Product: Reef Dip 250ml
Substitute Product: ReVive Coral Cleaner 500ml
Use product with: AquaLife Complete Water Conditioner 16oz

 

Overview:
• Encourages health, growth, reproduction, and vibrant coloration
• Provides important nutrients to corals and their allies during periods of stress induced by changes in lighting and/or prolonged exposure to excessive water temperature (often resulting in bleaching)
• Aids in tissue repair after corals have undergone fragmenting and captive propagation
• Does not require refrigeration
• Formulated by a marine scientist

Technical Background:
Brightwell Aquatics Restor is a complex of amino acids and fatty acids derived from marine fishes and crustaceans; it is a strong source of EPA, DHA, and other omega-3 fatty acids, as well as naturally-occurring pigments. Restor was specifically formulated for the care of corals and their allies that: have been recently placed into a new aquarium and are adjusting to new lighting; have recently been exposed to prolonged elevated temperatures (inducing expulsion of symbiotic zooxanthellae, known as bleaching); have suffered tissue damage either through fragmenting or propagation, or through the unwanted grazing activities of aquarium inhabitants. Research has shown that during bleaching events, some corals obtain the majority of their nutrients through capture of prey rather than by relying on zooxanthellae, until such time as the zooxanthellae have become adjusted to the change in lighting or re-established in the coral tissue. While the contents of Restor will not directly reverse coral bleaching, they will effectively provide nutrients required by the coral to potentially survive the period of time during which zooxanthellae are recovering or being reacquired; no express claims are made that corals who have suffered bleaching will recover when using this product, however it has generally been observed that corals obtaining the required nutrition (by actively feeding) during such an event have a higher rate of recovery. Using Restor to fortify plankton of the proper size range for the target organism(s) is an extremely effective means of providing those important substances.

Restor does not require refrigeration, however storage in a cool, shaded area will prolong the activity of the vitamins. Refrigeration will maximize the shelf-life of the product.

Instructions and Guidelines:
Shake product well before using. Turn protein skimmer and other forms of mechanical filtration off prior to adding foods fortified with Restor to aquaria, and allow 10 - 15 minutes after feeding before resuming operation of filtration.

Target Feeding (recommended): Target feeding may be carried out with a lengthy piece of rigid air tubing, plastic syringe, pipette, dropper, or similar device; pour 5 ml (1 capful) into a small container and suck a portion of this into the feeding device, then slowly discharge the contents of the device 2 - 4 upstream of the target organism(s). Repeat these steps as deemed necessary. Rinse the portion (inside and outside) of the feeder that was placed into aquarium water before placing it into this bottle (if feeding directly from the bottle rather than from a separate container); failure to do so will contaminate the product and encourage it to decompose. Restor may be utilized as a food-soak; to do so, place food into a clean container, add up to 5 ml of Restor and allow 5 - 10 minutes for food to soak; target feed as directed.

Broadcast Dispersal: Add up to 5 ml per 50 gallons of water in the entire aquarium system in an area of rapid water movement every two to three days for the first four weeks of use; thereafter, the dosage may be increased as desired.

Notes: Add no more than 5 ml total of liquid food suspensions 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. This product is best utilized by target feeding specific invertebrates in an aquarium; in doing so, the majority of the complex may be consumed by the intended organisms rather than ending up in filtration media or indirectly impacting water quality (as often occurs when indiscriminately broadcast feeding).

Caution:
Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption.

Ingredients:
Purified water, stabilized amino acids and fatty acids (all of marine origin), tocopherol
