Thanks Justin, I'll look into that. Looks easy enough and more money in my pocket for battery chargers lol

Kent salt all the way I still dose 2 part a little but with the levels Kent mixes at I'm probably dosing half of what I would need if running IO. Also keep in mind I have about 100 frags and 20-30 colonies in a 46 gallon tank so I'm draining my alk and calcium at pretty drastic rates especially when you consider my coraline algae haha. Long story short if your unhappy with your levels and want them higher then Kent is a fantastic option which more and more people seem to be making the switch (its cheaper too lol)
