    To be honest I've never even heard of this before. Better do some research.

    I did vitamin C in 2009 , basically its buffered vitamin C , a carbon source. You need to start very slowly and then ramp up as required. There is a calculation based on water volume for your dose.

    For me it resulted in cyno with no significant improvement. Also it made my skimmer go crazy when I put it in. I decided against it , not worth the effort. How some people have had good success with it. On RC look for the name pufferpunk, she has the detailed instructions on it.

    basically just a carbon source..there is a lengthly thread over on reef central about it..and i mean several pages..they claim it gives your polyps more pop..but not sure on that one..but i have never tried it..always wanted too though..just cant find any buffered vit c anywhere around..
