    Ok I am changing my tank over to BB, SPS tank, I wanted to know since the Instant Ocean reef crystals have more calcium and minerals in them if it is going to be that much of a difference than the regular instant ocean salt.

    So I've been testing my water weekly, but I've always had difficulty with my iodine tests. I had been using a Seachem Iodine and Iodide test, but I found it to be quite variable, such as i could test back to back specimens from the tank and get quite different results - frequently the results...

    Hey all, I am just starting a 75gal reef tank. Never had a SW tank before, but have had a FW tank for several years. I have been doing a lot of research and will hopefully be able to start putting this to work soon. I plan on doing nearly everything as a DIY project, and I will be needing lots...

    We do a lot of water changes and would like to switch from Instant Ocean Reef Crystals to something with a lower metal content (per the study that was on Reef Central). What kind of salt do you use, why, and where do you buy it? We're especially interested in finding Crystal Sea salt--none of...
