Red Sea Salt

Are you using Red Sea pro? Or thinking of switching? I use reef crystals and don't dose with an sps dominated tank. I have a hard time believing an lps tank needs to be dosed at all especially using RSCP

Ya if your using the RSCP you won't need to dose, I've been using it for years and love it. I personally like the high element levels so that I don't have to dose

Dude, RSCP is the best. My favorite sale by far. No way you'd have to dose an LPS dominated tank with it.

I use reef crystals now. Im hoping to switch once it runs out. Probably within the next 2 weeks. I do 5g weekly w/c. My perms are right on mark . Im just wanting to see some more growth and whats best for my corals. I also run a eshopps 20g sump, eshopps skimmer, with full spectrum taos.

I've been thinking of switching as well but can't justify the price difference lol.

Yeah, generally it's more. Except I can get it for $20 for a 55g bucket. Pretty good price.
