Anyone ever use Carib Sea "Purple Up"

Has anyone ever used purple up in their tank? If so how were the results.

I was about done with the first bottle when the hurricane hit and I was without lighting for a week. I was seeing nice results from it. I am hoping it all comes back, it is there, but rather faint. I cannot get any locally, so I have to wait until my next order to get some and that is liable to be awhile.

I use it to dose a little calcium here and there when I need it. Good product. If you do go ahead and purchase it, just make sure you add it slowly. When I use to just dump it in, my corals could retract a little and the water would be clowdy. I use an IV bag for my water top off system. I use about a bag of water a day for top offs so I just put the daily dose straight into the bag and corals don't retract anymore, plus the water doesn't get cloudy.
