    I got AQUAVITRO fuel for reefs $12.99 350ml bottle. And looking on the table on back of bottle it have same vitamins and minerals like Walgreens dayli supplement have +_ couple of it. Question is can I dissolve some tablets from Walgreens dissolve it in water and use it like reef fuel? Seems like it gonna be cheaper 10-25times

    Probably not. There are typically a lot of fillers and binders that are not reef safe in human vitamins.

    Also Fuel is an amino supplement and vito supplement. It's bound by chlorella algae and makes for actual absorption of the supplements. I like fuel overall, but it's by absolutely no means a necessity for a very healthy, thriving aquarium. It can be hard on filtration and in some cases cause more harm than good through excess waste upon breakdown.
