    hi R2R familiy: im starting with a new nano tank (40G), and I can't decide which salt to use... I was thinking about using Coral PRO, but I saw that its alkalinity levels are 12. 2, it's a bit high, is not it? I know alkalinity should be around 7.8-8.3. Which option could I use to start my tank?
