Cool. Hopefully Red Sea works out well for you. Let me know how it goes. Even if I am using something else I will probably change the next batch if unsatisfied.

Same here..... Started with Kent & Reef Crystals, and both left nasty brown residues in my mix tub, but since switching to Coral Pro, not a problem there. I got mine last year on one of BRS's 12 days of Christmas specials..... $45 a bucket, so I got 6 of them with free shipping. I think my wife cussed me for a week because she had to bring them in the house when the UPS man showed up while I was still at work.

I might go with ESV bc apparently it mixes in 10-15 mins. That's fast.
