Using the AF 1+2+3+ bundle right now and would like to switch to the dry and make my own.

Would prefer to keep it to 3 fluids like I use now. Would this work correctly?

Calcium Dry + Component A + Component B : Add 5 mL each to 1000 mL
Mg Dry + Component K : Add 5 mL to 1000 mL
KH Buffer + Component C : Add 5 mL to 1000 mL

Should I add the Mineral Salt to the Mg Dry + K solution at 25g per 1000 mL ? Would this be equivalent to the fluid bundle I use now?

I wonder if I should switch to the BRS Pharma grade bundle and use the AF strong component system for trace elements... I guess if I can calculate the concentrations right that might work too.

I love the 3 part by AF. I am curious why you want to switch to dry? More time consuming in my opinion.

But here is a video that may help. Good luck!

I think it’s significantly cheaper by 300-400 percent if not more. I am running through the fluid quickly as my SPS colonies grow faster. A good problem to have!

Just want some clarity if adding mineral salt to the Mg solution is the best way to get this done or if it’s better to make a Ca Mg solution and dose mineral salts separately.

Well duh, should have checked their FAQ



....



When making my own Component 1+ 2+ 3+ with the dry Calcium, Magnesium and KH Buffer, I was wondering if the homemade mixed solution is exactly the same as the premade solution.
You can mix your own Component 1+2+3+ using:
Solution 1: Calcium + Strong A + Strong B
Solution 2: KH Buffer + Strong C
Solution 3: Magnesium + Reef Mineral Salt + Strong K
