I’ve been using aqua forest coral foods for a few months now since my nitrates are always so low. I give them a 8/10.

Speaking about water tests from aquaforest, generally speaking they are all pretty good, and user friendly some people may say that the no3 and po4 colorimetric readings are not good, in fact there are some variations when you made the readings using artificial and natural light, my advice try to do the readings using natural light works perfect about all the rest just follow the manual and it’s gonna work just fine.

Been battling High Nitrates and Phosphates ever since I started this hobby(marine aquarium). For more than a year, I was using de-nitrate, phosguard and purigen. But still, Nitrate and Phosphate reading are above normal.
Then i came across Aquaforest Products when my LFS started selling them. At first, I was having second thoughts on trying AF Carbon and AF Phosphate Minus. And after some reading on the net, I finally decided to purchase a AF 110 reactor, AF Carbon and AF Phosphate minus and installed it on my aquarium. After a week, I can no longer detect my Nitrate and Phosphate. I really happy with the result. And now, I also added AF zeo mix. So that even on heavy feeding, I wont have to worry about Ammonia, Nitrate and Phosphate.
Before I use other company salt but my corals didn’t want to grow and it pissing me and I get cyanobacteria but one my friend said try to go with af probiotic salt,I been sceptical and read good and bad reviews about af salt. But I give a chance for this salt and now after 2 month using this salt my corals start grow and thriving my cyanobacteria almost gone

I use your po4 test, I must say that it is a good, modern product, clear manual, easy to distinguish colors on the scale and, above all, the accuracy of the test that surprised me. In my opinion, it is a hit that introduced the aquaforest, thus beating the tests of other manufacturers. I have confronted the tests of two popular producers and I think that the aquaforest did a good job. I can safely recommend this test, I am looking to buy no3 test.

Aquaforest Stone Fix
Guys it’s too bad Valentine’s day is over – because I’ve found my new love! ❤❤❤
I purchased a tub of Aquaforest Stone Fix well over 3 months ago, and to be completely honest, I’ve been putting off using it. I was worried it would be tricky to use and that I would mess it up.
I don’t know why I was worried.
This product is absolutely fantastic.
The how-to video the team at Aquaforest has made is easy to follow and understand. (You can check it out yourself here – https://youtu.be/zf-1RAG51R0)
The wife was also happy that I barely made a mess – even though I was applying it on her clean tiles 😂🤣
All in all I had fun doing this little project and will have no second thoughts about making Coral Fix mud pies again in the future 🙂

Moved over to using af 2 months ago. Mostly softy tank with high no3 po4 levels and could never get them down. Starting using np pro and the bio s product to help with export and safe to say i am way down in levels now. Even while feeding more than normal.
Tank also love its build, vitality, energy and aminos. Tank is so vibrant and super happy with amazing growth in all my corals. Just started the trace range and strong component range. Looking forward to seeing the results. Thank you af for your amazing product range.
Ps, my rock work was done with stonefix too. Best stuff ever for scaping. Currently doing my next tanks scape
What’s not to like, excellent product design from a pos point of view, very competitive retail price while providing a sold margin for trade but most important of all, a product that preforms above and beyond.
It’s the attention to detail that impresses, water proof charts with testing kits.
Excellent work guys, very much looking forward to what you come up with in 2019.

Aquaforest is effective and it works. More importantly, its affordable. Im glad the local distro have continuously remain the stock count, unlike some other distros, keep out of stock and got to wait for months. I’m able to keep the nutrients low even with daily frozen foods.
Coloration has improved overall. More vibrant. Coloring sps is made easier.
The purple packaging is definitely the best thing I like about AF… Unique. Eye-catching. Makes you eager to do the next dosage just to see it. Ok, you guys get the point. I really love the purple and the professional yet friendly look.
I was not keen to do the switch from what I was dosing* to AF when I first got news of it. Never really believe in such products so why bother changing? But I must say the price was pretty attractive and I told myself – $12 per bottle for F and S, so why not just give it a try? I did. And I honestly do not regret it.
Price won my wallet. Performance won my trust. I mean whats good price without good performance right? ABVE + FS has really won me over. In the past, I feed a bit only I get algae (not a lot but there will never be too little algae tio bo?). The truly annoying algae is the algae film that always gets on the glass. So last time feed a bit = many water changes a week and fast algae growth on glass. After dosing FS, I can confidently feed my fishes and yet face minimal algae on the glass. Im not saying that it stopped but I now need not clean the glass so often. Moreover, some sps like my monti and digi changed colour – brown to pink, brownish purple to intense purple, brown to pastel purple. As for ABVE, I must say that polyp extension became happier. Whether the corals are healthier and growth rate, I will be honest and say that I don’t know for now. I can only report what I see so far and I am happy with everything so far.
After 3weeks of using AF salt, Pro F, Bio S n Np….water getting stable, SPS showing PE and no3 drop from 25 to 0. Thumbs up!

I was using zeovit before I started with AF. I use AF Amino Mix, AF Build, AF Energy, AF Vitality, and np pro, pro f and pro bio s. Bio s only when, waterchange. Im 2 months into AF now, and my polyps at going crazy, things are starting to colour up nice. I’m very happy with the product! And will keep using it from now on! Easy to use, and good priced products!:) I’m currently running the system now, with AF reefsalt, but will go over to the probiotics salt, when I’m done with this bucket.

Prior to start I had zero PO4 and 0.2 Nitrate but SPS had stopped growing, PE was bad and many SPS were not showing true colours.
I suspect it was old tank syndrome where trace elements were below NSW ( I had not kept up with WC’s as filtration was working and Balling kept Kh/MG/CA stable, plus I am a little lazy)
In the 2 months of AF dosing growth has kicked off again and corals are completely changed in colour and PE is wild!
PO4 and Nitrate have remained stable since I started but I have increased fish livestock 30% and much more feeding in this period.
I’m finding AF products to be good value and easy to use once you figure out which products suit your approach to the system.
For example you can choose the AF Balling which has all your trace included, or if you like more control you can mix your own balling liquids and dose trace elements individually.
Once you figure it out you can tailor the AF products to use according to your tanks needs, your time/lifestyle and your experience level.
Be warned the AF vitality products are awesome but are quite concentrated so start off slow when dosing these! What you end up dosing will be very dependent on the quantity and size of your coral colonies!
All in al I am very happy with AF products and the support of the manufacturer! I highly recommend this approach to reef tank chemistry

Aquaforest works totaly fine for me.

Aquaforest Reef Salt review!
Ok so the bucket came, first impressions has to be the colour/picture of the bucket, WOW that is well done folks you will catch anyones attention with that!
One very small picky thing I found, and is picky, the little tab you have to break off to open, not easy for me who bites his nails lol
So put the tub on the scales at recorded 23.15kg not bad so far!
Opened it up and found the label nicely on the top, will test that later so see how we did on that one!
Opened the bag, and the first time seen on all the salts I have used, there was a measuring jug, nice thought!
So got 2 tubs with the same amount of water in, put 100g of Aquaforest against another brand, Aquaforest mixed very well, no smell to it at all, mixed to make a vortex to spin the large bits to the middle, as you can see in the mixes, the Aquaforest was crystal clear in no time at all, the other brand a little hazy. the other brand did mix a little higher salinity 36 than the Aquaforest 35 but I knew that salt was good for that anyway, the levels within that salt are not very good so i’m hoping the Aquaforest salt is!
The Aquaforest salt seem to be fluffy as that’s the only was I can describe it against the other brand, very light feel to it!
So at the moment it has lived unto all that was expected, the branding is superb, the quality so far is superb….
Today is 6 months running complete Aquaforest, here are some coral photos. I could not be happier…
My touch of Aqua forest been running a month on pro biotic and I must say I’m impressed.
