I have been using IO for years. But with the advice of the most knowledgable Coral grower I know. He said that the Tropic Marin was extremely stable in its mix and that additives (other than possibly Kalkwasser) would never be necessary for even the toughest corals.
So I bought a big-ol-bucket
and I have been using it for about 2 weeks.
I have not tested the CA
in it before use, I'll do that for ya in a couple of days when I do my PWC
I am curious now, I don't see many that mentioned this salt. Does anyone else have an opinion on it. TIA
Devilishturtles, if you are using tap water I would think your CA
would be much higher than RO
. I tested my tap water and it was high. I bought an RO
unit like this one http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Reef-6st-125...verse-Osmosis-RO
