I've read in enough places that IO salt can be a source of cyano
problems (that research done somewhere showed it pretty clearly - don't have a link). I'm tired of fighting cyano
- I have more than enough water flow, virtually no PO4
, low NO3
, and it keeps coming back.
Anyone else see cyano
with Instant Ocean?
IO also isn't getting my Ca
up to where it should be (only about 320, even mixed to a strong 1.025 sg
I have my first batch of Reef Crystals on the way from that Fosters and Smith place, even with shipping it was cheaper than IO cost locally.
Hopefully I'll see an improvement in Cyano
, as well as general health (although everything is thriving). I have a 30g change coming up next weekend, hopefully the new stuff will be here by then.
I'll update this after a month or so after I've been using it awhile.
