Nutri-SeaWater!!

Hello to everyone,

I am new to this board. I have been doing lots of reading from pass postings .....Lots of good info.

I am just about to set up a 90 gal. reef tank. I would like to know if anyone uses (Nutri-Seawater) instead of mixing salt & water.

I have been seeing lots of postings where people are mixing their water with no mention of the 'natural live ocean saltwater' (Nutri-SeaWater) for water.

I plan on using the Nature's Own sand with this water to start the cycle. Are there any advantages or disadvantages to using this water?

Thanks

if you live in the midwest, like me, there's no option but synthetic salt mixes.

i dont think that using both NSW and livesand is really nessescary, esp if you are planning on adding LR. doesnt seem very cost effective to me- save that money you would have spent on the NSW, im sure you'll be needing it sooner than you think

good luck!!
