Mix it up with RO water like you would normally prepare for a water change and then test the same as you would the tank water.

Cheers
Steve

I had the same problems using IO salt. No additives I tried would bring the CA above 350. I have been using tropic marin now for about a month and a half(weekly water changes) and my CA is at 425. I have not changed anything else! I also use the same test kit and was questioning its validity. I now know the problem was not with my kit but with my salt. Good luck.

I know that fosters and smith have it, but I do not know who is the cheapest. I do know that they are cheaper than my LFS even with the shipping costs.
