Google getting a bad batch of salt. It's actually not very uncommon.

And yes the water will go bad if you mix it for too long according to the manufacturer. It's recommended 45 mins so there is no precipitation...

I think you just hear from the complainers more than the folks that don't have problems...how many bajillion tons of salt have they shipped...and there are only a couple hundred complaints.

That being said, RedSea is very responsive and will replace the bucket for you.

If that's even the problem. I'm still in trouble shooting stage. I'm hoping it's a bad batch as it would answer a lot of questions for me.

Have you checked your other levels in the tank? Do you have an LFS that will do a soup-to-nuts test for you (copper, mag, alk, ca, along with the usual suspects)?

I'm guessing you've done power changes, too.

I was reading my old threads about my corals being mad after water changes and I realize that they only started being mad once I started using the Red Sea Coral pro salt so it's definitely suspect to me and worth a shot to change the salt out to a different kind... I think that was a run-on sentence sorry

Power change == large water change. I spread them out over a few days to get 100% changed out if needed.

I would definitely talk w/ RedSea about this:
1-888-RED-SEA9
redseainfo@redseafish.com

I don't see a Facebook or Twitter account for them.
