    I had my LFS test the calcium content of my tank water and it was 390. I tested it with a Salifert kit and got 380. I then tested my freshly mixed RCs and got 375/380. RC salt has always been in the mid to high 400's. Anyone else getting low calcium readings with RC salt??????

    I switched to reef crystals a couple months back. When I make water (RODI into an old salt bucket) I get a whitish sediment on my pumps/heater/wires that are sitting in the water. I didnt notice this with other salts. I let my water mix for 2 days. Is this typical? Just seems kinda dirty...
