    Hi all,

    found a retailer who is selling a complete spectrum of amino acids meant to feed marine corals. Does anyone have any experience about what these acids would do to fishes and plants? Would the plants benefit from amino acid supplement?

    Regards,
    Detlef

    Re: amino acids

    Some plants can use Amino acids as a nitrogen source along with NH4 and NO3.

    I think you are better off using NO3.
    Plants are exteremely good at using NO3/NH4, people hear AA's and think "ooooo that might help a little like vitaimins....." Given a choice, plants will go with NO3/NH4 in most cases, you can spend 20$ for that or 2$ for a pound of KNO3....it's your money......
