I was using Kent Reef, and was happy with it..... I changed because I found the Alk was a bit higher in the Red Sea CP, and I have a friend that works in a local pet store who can get it for me for $40 a bucket!!

Actually it's not quite 2 yrs old..."Last edited by bertoni; 11/08/2010 ", but anyway I tried about 6 or 7 buckets worth and my tests were very close to what's posted there. I didn't like the high calcium I was getting since it messed with my daily dosing scheme. I like the regular version better. I will only use either regular Red Sea or Instant Ocean. It depends on what my LFS has in stock or if either is on sale.
