will definately have a negative impact on corals and mobile inverts, fish not really. It will also impact the alk
to a certain degree unless maintained chemically. As far as coralline affecting the Ca
levels, you would need some serious growth to pull down from 540 ppm
to a more NSW
level. You really have nothing in the tank that's going to change the Ca
much if at all. Given your tank chemistry tests pretty much match the salt specs to a "T", there is IMO
, nothing using it.
Personally I don't think using this salt in the long run is beneficial at all. You can choose to use up what you have until it's gone but since you have purchased the new brand, I would do the swap as discussed and stick with it after that. The Oceanic is I believe
, the root of your problems. You will only know for sure one way or the other once you disciontinue it's use.
