Purple Up or B-Ionic?

I use B-Ionic right now and the coralline is growing but I would like it to grow a bit quicker. I was considering purple up? Has anyone had expierence with it? If so do you prefer purple up or b-ionic? Let me know your sucess with either!

I started using purple-up a few weeks ago. I've never used B-Ionic before, but used Coraline Stimulator for almost 3 months. I've noticed a huge change in my tank with Purple Up. My Coraline was starting to bleach out with my new MH, and when I added Purple Up it regained it's color and started growing much thicker around the tank. I couldn't be happier with the product. At least give the stuff a try for a few weeks, it may just be what you're looking for.

Be careful what you wish for.

I wish my coraline wouldn't grow so fast or all over the place. I use B-Ionic.

I just ordered a bottle from eBay I will use it when I run out of B-Ionic to see if I notice any difference. First off however if I use purple up after using B-Ionic will it effect my system at all?

I would keep an eye on your calcium levels. Purple Up raises them. I've never tried Ionic, so I can't say more than that..
