Sea-Lab Formula 28.....

is a mixture of naturally occurring buffer compounds that maintains natural ocean concentrations of calcium, strontium, and all 15 essentail trace elements..."

This is a big white block(kinda like weekly feeders) that will supposedly balance the elements in your tank. I have only seen it at one LFS and it doesn't even come in a container, just a big white block. Has anybody seen this or have you used it? It sounds like a good thing but I've never seen it at any of the other multiple LFS who carry SWF so I am a bit wary(as usual). Any info would be great, thanks.....Derek.

I'm assuming no one here has ever seen this. The LFS gal told me to drop one in my tank and if it started dissolving right away then I needed it bad. She said she puts one per tank every month or so. Anyway, let me know if you guys know anything about this.

regular water changes should be all you need to maintain trace elements. The exception is Ca if you have corals.

I have special orded it for a few people. I have heard good reports about it . The ony negative I have heard is the calcium needed additional additives to maintain the correct levels.
