Red sea coral pro salt

Can someone with red sea coral pro salt please test some newly mixed salt for ammonia and tell me what you get?

I can when I'm at the house. What test kit are you using? Also referring to the bucket the jump in TDS could be salt residue from the last time you mixed saltwater in there.

Yeah, im thinking thats a possibility,I'm using a garbage can for mixing, but it's not a brute. I'm specifically looking for ammonia.

Have you tested the water freshly mixed still in the brute can? That's what I'm interested in, and how high. I would mix some up in a glass container to test but I am out of salt.

There was a thread about this very topic several months ago. End result I can't recall, but it involved ammonia readings with red sea salt. I only remember there being some involved in making it and carry over purr something. I think out might have been replaced due to it being a processing issue.
