Oh man, I'm addicted. I can't stop!! Help Me (?)

A few weeks ago one of the LFS sponsored a group buy on reef crystals, 160g mix for $35. Well, today was pickup day, and who can go into a store without buying something?

Hmmm...Why didn't I hear about such a great deal on salt mix?

Those pics...I've seen them somewhere before...

Awesome pick ups! The ric will not last in your tank. I must come and get it to save it's life.

Is reef crystals the better salt mix to use? I have two 200g buckets of Kent I got for $45 for both so I couldnt pass it up.

Thanks

everyone has their preferences. Asking which salt is better is like asking if chocolate or vanilla is better. RC is all I've ever used, so I can't compare.

After reading the specs on several different salt brands stating we have this, or specially made for that, I was beginning to wonder if its just marketing at work.

Thanks

Nice pick ups. Great price on the salt. I need some and am hoping TFP will have good deals on salt for the swap. I think I'm going to switch to Reef Crystals...if the price is right

I've bounced around on the salt mix but I always seem to come back to Reef Crystals.

Gonna check out what I can get RC for since you pros like it (wholesale friends rule).

You still divin neilanh? You obviously did tropical judging by the excellent vis in pics on your website. Here in the Puget Sound the vis is decent in winter but come summer so does the alge and nowhere near the beauty of tropical dives. Usually see huge octopus and wolf eels on night dives. The eels are great as they are so friendly. Give em a crab and they will be your friend forever. They will take crab by hand but a little scary at first only cuz they look like an insane pitbull. Hoping for the Great Barrier Reef someday!
