Lipids-Fatty Acids-Oil Soluble Vitamins
A complex of natural lipids, fatty acids, and oil soluble vitamins that are essential of the tissue metabolism of living organisms, vertebrates and invertebrates. A small amount of LIFO goes a long way, but some fats, oils, and oily vitamins are required for growth.
- Replaces natural substances depleted by actively filtered systems.
- Includes those substances that generally can’t be synthesized.
- “My Ricordea absolutely loves it,” one client’s comment about NatuReef LIFO.
Natureef LIFO is available in 1/2 ounce bottles.
These substances, especially the Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) are all essential tissue building materials. Unfortunately, in highly filtered systems these substances are quickly oxidized or stripped from the water. Their residence time may only be hours. An indication of the lack of fatty acids is the accumulation of water insoluble organics that rise to the surface of the water. Quite often, one drop of LIFO on the surface disperses these organics. The tiny fat globules formed are readily stripped. Since the addition of LIFO effectively reduces the surface tension there will be a temporary collapse of froth in protein skimmer columns. However, the things should return to normal shortly.
Directions: Add directly to surface water of aquarium. One drop per 25 gallons on a daily basis.
Caution: Keep away from children and pets. For marine aquarium use only.
