See how salt mixes stack up to each other.

Came across this and figured I'd share it. Very interesting.

Interesting Article.....

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.

Funny!

I meant this just as an informative link. If your salt mix works for you then why change.

bummer, they don't even list Oceanic salt, even if it was from 6 years ago.
