I got in to all this supplement when all my coralline alga faded out completely.
Than my anemone died and half of my snails and all my starfish died with it.
Slime and brown algae take over the tank, than started to experiment with all kind of water treatment, phosphate removers, PH and DKh
stabilizers. Calcium and magnesium was way to low, every time I went to the store I just come home with more and more additives, over 1 year the tank is finally stabilized, now for the first time my coralline algae are growing again, cacl
, mag, PH, DKh
, Ionide are where is should be. Don't know for fact, because of the additives or just time !?
Changed salt brand 3x now, I'm back on Instant Ocean after Coralife and Meersaltz. All my local stores owners are criminals, easy 30-40% markup on salt, at least I can buy IO for a fair price.
So.... Water change only! I'll give it a try for a few month.
