    Like to ask the reefers out there to give there opinions on sea salts. I once used Oceanic Natural Sea Salt and I remember having lots of trouble with the Ph, Ca, and the KH. I hear Instant Ocean reef crystals is good. The price of the salt doesn't really make a difference to me. I'm really...

Does it affect pH,alk,etc. without buffers, compared to other sea salts? what are your opinions on it, and if possible...

    I use instant ocean salt mix, and i think i didn't close the package all the way, and let air in, and now it's kind of hard and doesn't dissolve as well. I mix it with warm water and let it sit overnight, but there's still a tiny bit that doesn't dissolve. It goes away after about 10 min in the...

    I am leaving on vacation next week for a few days and wanted to get a water change done on my tank before I left. I estimated that I had enough salt mix left but I'm short just a bit. At final mixing the water is testing at 1.020. I need it up at 1.025. I don't have time to order salt mix...
