That was one of the points about using Peladow or other Dow calcium chloride products manufactured after 01/2007. Dow no lnoger removes Bromide sothe levels jumped from 65ppm to 7000ppm. The question remains, will this increased level of bromide be detrimental in a reef tank?

...and you really will not find out until there has been a proper laboratory test or, as is most likely the case, time will tell for those who use it. For those interested and/or have not seen it, it is specifically discussed here: Reef Central Online Community - New Dowflake OK to Boost Calcium in Salt Mixes

lol cmor... if i hit the lottery i'd do a lot of things.

do you think I should test iodine as well? how important is this to reef health? I am such a newbie with all of these extra params lol when i started out it was just the standard stuff and i thought that was a lot, but i'm getting the hang of it i think.

i wish the calcium supp i bought was on that calculator thingie.
