Reef Trace Elements

Red Sea’s research has identified 31 minor and trace elements that in addition to the foundation elements are present in the skeleton and soft tissue of all corals.

The Red Sea Coral Coloration Program’s supplements family divides these elements into four groups : Trace – Colors A, B, C and D that are related by the biological functions they perform. They are also associated with the production of specific color pigments in the soft tissue of stony corals.

These pigments can only be produced if the specific elements required for the bio-chemical process are available in the correct concentration. All 31 elements are required by all stony corals irrespective of the actual color the coral displays.
