Too often we let ourselves get carried away by fashions that risk complicating our lives. Intricate management protocols lead us to lose the true "link" with our Marine Aquarium.
ELOS was born in 1997, a time when aquariums were managed following a few, clear, simple rules:
- ADEQUATE LIGHTING
- MOVEMENT OF WATER
- FILTERING WITH SKIMMER
-INTEGRATION OF CALCIUM/MAGNESIUM/KH/ SELECTED TRACE ELEMENTS
- REGULAR WATER CHANGES
During these 25 years we have seen various fashions come and go but the BASIC PRINCIPLES listed above remain SOLID PILLARS to achieve great results, with a single IMPORTANT addition: CONTROL of NO3 and PO4.
Our Back to Reef campaign returns to those origins to SIMPLIFY the management of your marine aquarium. Your aquarium will achieve a balance of minerals and organic substances with the help of a few supplements, the intelligence of MaRe - an intelligent dosing pump, and our accurate ELOS AquaTests.
You will not need to resort to complicated, inconsistent analysis procedures, nor the addition of phantom micro-elements whose benefit is uncertain, often unknown, and untested.
It’s not just a simple dosing pump - it’s the "brain" of your aquarium. The Elos Dosatron will calculate dosing level needs of your aquarium based on the data you enter (KH-Ca-Mg Test) and will administer the main supplements accordingly. The ELOS Dosatron learns your aquarium’s daily needs and behavior to fully automate dosing procedures.
The ELOS Pesatron works symbiotically with the ELOS Dosatron to provide reliable and consistent dosing to your aquarium. The ELOS Pesatron self-verifies exact dosing amounts using weight and adjusts the behavior of the dosing pumps, without the need for manual calibration. With the ELOS Pesatron built in weight scales, you no longer need to manually calibrate dosing pumps, preventing dosing errors that may occur by drifts over time. In addition, the ELOS Pesatron is accurate to the tenth of a gram.
All setting adjustments are made through an iOS or Android device.
The dedicated application allows you to set the basic parameters (Aquarium size/ Ca-Mg-KH values) and use MaRe in FULL AUTOMATIC (Intelligent) or Manual mode.
In FULL AUTOMATIC mode, ELOS MaRe will correct the dosages in order to maintain the correct values of Ca-Mg-KH.
Furthermore, thanks to the ALERT function, a lack of liquid message will arrive on your device when dosing containers are low on fluids
Extra Calcium 4 is a very efficient calcium additive manufactured from pure laboratory grade salts and is designed to rapidly restore calcium concentration to NSW levels.
This additive is perfect for Balling Methods and works best with the ELOS MaRe Intelligent Dosing System in combination with Extra KH+ Buffer, Extra Magnesium 5, and the Elos line of Trace Elements.
USE: Add 3.67 grams of powder for every 100 liters (26.5 US gal) of water to increase the Ca level by 10 ppm
Extra Magnesium 5 is a very efficient magnesium additive manufactured from pure laboratory grade salts and is designed to rapidly restore magnesium concentration to NSW levels. This additive is perfect for Balling Methods and works best with the ELOS MaRe Intelligent Dosing System in combination with Extra Calcium 4, Extra KH+ Buffer and the Elos line of Trace Elements.
USE: Add 8.36 grams of powder for every 100 liters (26.5 US gal) of water to increase the Mg level by 10 ppm
Extra KH+ Buffer is a pH buffer formula designed to adjust alkalinity of saltwater aquariums. This buffer is designed to keep KH (Carbonate Hardness) at NSW levels of 8 to 12 dKH to minimize pH fluctuations. This additive is perfect for Balling Methods and works best with the ELOS MaRe Intelligent Dosing System in combination with Extra Calcium 4, Extra Magnesium 5, and the Elos line of Trace Elements.
USE: Add 2.98 grams of powder for every 100 liters (26.5 US gal) of water to increase the KH level by 1dkh
Calcium is the primary building block for corals, calms, calcareous algae and many other marine organisms that we grow in our aquarium. Its careful measurement is important to guarantee their optimal living conditions. ELOS AquaTest include calibrated lab droppers with consistent and predefined drops of 0,03 ml each, to grant high precision.
Grading: Precision test (reagent D): 1 drop = 10 mg/lt.
In Marine Aquarium it is good practice to keep Magnesium concentration around 1.300/1.350 mg/lt.
The use of ELOS AquaTest Mg permits the precise measurement of Magnesium values thus permitting to perfectly dose our additives additives.
Grading: each drop equals 50 mg/Lt of magnesium
Alkalinity is essentially a means of quantifying the stability of pH in a solution, such as aquarium water. It is a measure of the concentration of various negatively charged ionic compounds (anions) such as carbonates, bicarbonates, borate and hydroxides in the aquarium water. It makes possible to quickly determine the buffering capacity of your aquarium water.
Grading: each drop equals 0,5 dKH°

The MaRe dosing system was born from an idea that we have been discussing for a long time, within our company and outside, with our collaborators, friends, aquarium enthusiasts and Opinion Leaders: the Back to Basic project. Back to Basic means: eliminating the superfluous!
In the aquarium of course! Over the years, on our market, there have been a multitude of practices, protocols and products that are sometimes superfluous, if not harmful, which often has led to ephemeral and short-term results, without focusing on the long-term equilibrium of the aquarium. Back to Basic is the opposite of all this, a way to bring the FOCUS back to what is really needed, to rediscover the true essence of the marine aquarium, always respecting our cornerstones.
Back to Basic means :
Quality is our top priority.
You have to be satisfied with the tangible results.
All the elements that make up our products are selected by pharmaceutical chemists, and are mixed to achieve the best effectiveness and not harm the environment or the people who use them.
Our products are THOUGHT, DESIGNED and PRODUCED in Italy.
We do not buy semi-finished products, but from raw materials we produce ourselves what will be the final result.
Our packaging is also produced in Italy by our partners, which have been around for twenty years: paper boxes, PET and glass bottles, of course all recyclable and reusable.
“Diluted” products make no sense to us, which is why our products are extremely high-yielding or highly concentrated.
This is to maximize the use of each product, eliminating unnecessary transport of goods and having less waste from use.
ELOS is a small 100% Italian company that has selected over the years a shortlist of collaborators that is its treasures.
Being all made in Italy means to follow a list od strict rules for what regard safety at work, remuneration, contribution and fair management. And above all ELOS produces in full respect of the environment.
ELOS dream about a world of natural aquarium, biologically in equilibrium and ecologically healthy. MaRe is a simplification that will make us achieve this goal TOGETHER WITH YOU.
Effective products and a SIMPLE management method to make your aquarium achieve tangible and transparent wellfare: following the rules of nature and its balances, thanks to your new "Reef Manager"
