The article appears to be from March 1999....a long time ago in relation to Marine Tanks.
I wonder how many salt formulations have changed since then?
I hope the Tropic Marin PRO REEF I am currently using is better than the Tropic Marin they tested...as it doesn't look so good.
Phosphate and Silicate is highest in the Tropic Marin in that study...yuck
I am also glad to know that if my fish appear a little bipolar...perhaps the switching them to the Coralife product could stabilize thier moods with the huge amount of Lithium in comparison to the other mixes.
