This is rich in vitamins, I would not dose more than 2-3 times per week. Keep an eye on glass algae/film, and dose 1 drop per 27 gallons. I used it once per week on my 120 gallon reef, with large colonies. I used only 2 drops on food, I did see marked improvement in fish color and health. I suspect the corals will also have use for these vitamins and the waste of fish. Like anything you dose, dose and observe, start 1/2 dose to break in the product, and test nutrient levels. The product is designed to dose macro or saturated into thawing frozen foods. I use LRS Reef Frenzy FWIW, which already has natural vitamins and probiotics. Cheers

thank you, is it necessary to keep rfrigerated?
i want vitamins for my seahorses. yesterday i tried it with frozen food and they ate it well so maybe i will dose with food and not in the water as i thought at first so dosing this way do you still think its enough 2-3 times per week or may be too much?, its only 2 seahorses (and some snails and thor shrimps) in a small 60 litres tank eating frozen mysis and artemia.
thank you again

Hello,
No it is not necessary for any products to be held in fridge. Energy and Pro Bio S should be kept in 76 degrees F or cooler, so if your home's ambient temp is higher, then to the fridge they go. I live in FL, I mine go in the fridge :) Your plan of 2-3 times per week soaked in frozen thawing food is best bet to get these vitamins to the animals. This would be by approach in your situation. 2 drops per each thawing should be correct dose. If you choose to, you may also do 1 drop on thawing each day. Cheers.
