    Why is my new mix cloudy? I'm doing it as always and 24 hrs later the mix is cloudy. I was using Instant Ocean with no probs. Before that used Reef Crystals. But since I've switched, it's always cloudy. After adding to tank, the cloud does dissipate. I got the Red Sea Coral Pro mix since it's...

    Since starting my new 70g a couple months ago, I've been having problems maintaining calcium and alk in my 70g reef, and suspected low Mg, so I tested, and sure enough it was way low (apx. 900-1000). I've only used Instant Ocean over the last several years, and after searching threads, have...

    Be careful using Aqua Stick Epoxy!!!!!! I used it & I have lost close to 15 stony colonies & frags!!!! It killed every coral I used it on, started at the bottom (RTN) & rapidly killed.
