Take a look here:

And here:

They contain elements that will precipitate when direct mixed. Therefor the warning not to mix, and not to use the same cup or any other dosing device.

To my opinion it is comparable with other productlines of trace elements based on Balling-method.

Thanks But I meant how does the Biotio (aminos) compare or differ to the Trace 1&2
I know you dose 1&2 apart from eachother

One is aminos/vitamins..

the other is trace elements (Iodine, fluorine, vanadium, lithium, molybdenum,rubidium, cobalt, zinc, iron, manganese, strontium)

Neither is something I'd recommend people add to their tanks unless they are on the expert level doing routine ICP testing,etc.. to know they are below NSW levels,etc.. and even then I'm not sure if the benefits,etc.. are really well understood even in the scientific community.. And those test seem to even have trouble or there are claims that the aren't that accurate at measuring them either.

In general trace elements are usually replaced just fine via feeding and water changes from what I understand..

Best to not dose what you don't test for..

Aminos well.. not sure you can convince me they do any good or are needed either..
I've been trying red sea reef energy and haven't really noticed any difference from doing so..
