whats in your salt mix and whats not?

http://216.168.47.67/cis-fishnet/JAAS/Jaas_8_2.pdf

interesting read, this article sure points out my ph problem =) In general the article is not trying to "sell" any particular brand but is a simple study. Doesnt seem like any particular salt is "the best" from what I can tell and most operate decently, though produce different ph buffering properties.

I have access to FSU's journal database system. I'll take a look and see if they subscribe to this journal...

Hmmm. I use Red Sea. Looks like it is lower in PH and some other desirables.
Might have to switch to Instant Ocean.

yeah I use coralife and mine seems to be fairly good at most things but WAY high on lithium and a little low on ph. I came across this article and thought it might provide some answer to people's quirky ph balances or other chemical questions. I wonder if lithium will negatively affect my aquaria life

anyone here use coralife?
