    Thinking of switching salt mixes from HW MarineMix to IO

    I see so many wonderful reef tanks using IO salt. I currently use HW MarineMix...thinking of switching! It is so tempting when you see $45 for IO (200g box) and compare that to $76 for HW MarineMix (160g box). HW MarineMix mixes very quickly and absolutely no residue! I do like this... I...

    Mixing different salts? (IO & RC)

    Running low on the regular Instant Ocean salt and since I'm planning to switch over to Reef Crystals because I will be converting to reef soon enough. Is it okay for my next water change to mix my left over of IO with the new RC? The way I prep the water is I let the salt mix for at least a...

    Adding IO Bio-Spira to an established tank?

    Going to do 20-30% changes over the course of the next two weeks, I was thinking of adding a full bottle of bio spira at the end of the all the water changes to keeps things balanced. Good idea or bad idea?

    Does salt mix have anything to do with pH?

    I set my tank up last December and I'm doing a one year re-evaluation to see if there are things I can improve. I use IO reef crystal and my tank pH has been consistently 7.8 - 7.9, regardless of windows open or closed and even after I added a macroalgae refugium. I don't want to chase pH but...

    How to complicate mixing salt.

    Hey guys! So I went up to my LFS, and while getting some new salt, they gave me a tip on weighing the salt to get a more precise reading. So how many grams of IO Reef Crystal would I need for a single gallon?

    Flippers reef 125 gallon

    The story of Flippers reef started long ago.......... In a time before a thing called "The Internet"existed. Land locked Missouri, mid western U.S.A. back in 1993. I had just got out of the army in 1992 and got busy starting a family. See, I had fresh water tanks off and on since I was very...
