More the presentation. Everyone (rightfully) originally latched on to the fact that it didn't appear that the salinities were equal across the charts. The way it was presented, it appeared that the same samples used to assess how much moisture was in the sample was used for the charts. After a few folks on some other boards talked to the testers, it came out that it wasn't the case... the charts all do reflect the same salinities. But even with that confusion, has their test writeup been postscripted to note that? No. Comes across pretty sloppy to me.
Methodology was a little lacking also with such a small sample size and other issues. (Super high Ca
levels for IO? Give me a break!) But hey... it was pure advertising and nowhere is it claiming to be a scientific study, so I can't blame 'em there.
In my opinion, it's a pretty nifty little business plan. They found a niche that definitely existed and I'm sure they're doing OK. I honestly thought about giving it a shot myself when I first heard about it, just to double check my numbers. But then I went through the thought process of "what if all the numbers come back totally different from what I'm reading?" With a tank that's doing pretty good in my opinion, I'm not in the mood to really change anything I'm doing. So what would be the point?
Probably more info than you were looking for, but there you have it!
