Thank you very much. I try.

Everything running as normal ( at least for me ) ,..after a week or two of running my new 500 watt blueline heater and digital controller I am truly amazed and happy with the stability of my tank's temperature ,... Once I got it all setup and running she's running perfectly with basically no temp variations at all,. As I had stated before my tank was starting to shift about 3-5 degrees during the course of the day,...freezing temp at nite and mild temps during the day was causing my old 300 watt heater to run overtime trying to keep up. ( understandable ! )
On a different note, I decided to experiment a little and do a little salt switch out to see how and if my tank would see any changes,...I'm currently running redsea Coral pro salt but decided to try out some reef crystals instead. , I ordered a bucket of it online because even with s/ h it was cheaper than my lfs price. Maybe I'll try out some Other brands after that just to see how things work out.
I'll be more than a little curious as to how many times you guys have switched your salt mixes until to found the one you've settled in on....I suppose there's pluses and minuses on each brand and it may a Lille nit picking but I'll kind of like to hear back on what you've selected as your brand.

Reef Crystals always leaves a nasty brown residue in my mixing drum. That, and Seachem Reef salt.
