I'm a newbie to reef aquariums, but I ran across this article comparing toxic levels of compounds in various salts. I ended up purchasing Marinemix Bioassay salt as a result of their findings.

I am going to go against the grain like ReefRunner does as it pertains to IO.

It's ionic balance stinks!! I have gone through about a dozen bags of that stuff and I always get the same results: ALK high and Ca low.

I switched over to Reef Crystals and it is a little better. The Ca is higher but the Alk remains the same. I think I am going to try Tropic Marlin next time. From what I hear, it is more ionically balanced than most.
