Salt Creep Eliminator

Anyone ever use this product? I saw it in the Drs Foster & Smith catalog and was wondering if it works.

I also saw this lime off that I thought might rid some of the white deposits.

And this for cleaning the glass.

Anyone ever use any of these?

That was about all I saw in this month's catalog that interested me.

I meant to say I'd interested in the salt creep eliminator.

Although I don't think any of the 3 products Bearfan lists go into the water.

Dont waste your money on the salt creep eliminator...I bought 2 bottles of this (different brands) and spent more energy making sure I didnt get much if any overspray in the water....I threw 3/4 of both bottles away...if you follow the directions, you will be using this stuff every 2-4 days...which is the same amt if you didnt use it!

Its seems most of us spend money on most aquarium products that are not neccessary. Stick with the basic. JMHO

what should I do with my salt creep? I have been sticking it into the skimmer so it will dissolve back into the system. Is this a bad thing?

I do the same thing..now anything outside the tank like the edges of the tank. I wipe it off as Im afraid it might contain some particles from the room enviroment...that is if your skimmer is in under your tank...all of my salt creep on my sump, skimmer, plumbing, I sweep back into the water...

You'd be increasing the salinity. Since you are losing water through evaporation, your salinity automaticaly will go up, you would be giving it a bigger boost yet. But, it can't be that much more salt, unless you have a leak.
