Hey! I'm new here. Been keeping aquarium fish for 12 years now, and just set up a 150 FOWLR
tank to complement my African tanks
The last time I did a saltwater tank was in the early 90's and it was a 75 gal
w/ UG filter. Wow! Has the equipment changed since then! Anyhoo, I decided to use the newest blend in salt mixes, the one by Oceanic and I can't stand it. It left a scummy white film all over my live rock and glass and I premixed it and aerated for 24 hours! Plus, when mixed w/ RO
water, the Ph only runs 7.8. I have added lots of buffer to stabilize it.
I just wanted to comment on this observation since I was paging through posts and saw that someone else had problems with Ph after using this blend. I am going to go back to the Red Sea mix I used to use, years ago!
