I use their salt and test kits, I like them seem to be a little better quality than most brands, I wouldn't say they they are top of the line, but they make good stuff. I'm pleased with my purchases, even though there were cheaper options.

No, never used any red sea supplements, I've used mostly kent marine supplements. Not anything against red sea, it's just a couple of my lfs carry the kent marine stuff as supplements.

Water changes still need to be done on a regular basis while using products like these. The product you are speaking of is a carbon source. So I would research carbon dosing or atleast understand it before using.

Another thing I would look into is why you feel you need to use this product. If 20% weekly changes are maintaining nitrates and phosphates and you are not overstocked or overfeeding then you should not need to use this product.

Also all those supplements are not required if you are maintaining there levels with water changes. Only heavily stocked coral reef tanks will require these forms of supplementation on a regular basis.

A link explaining water changes.
