    I have seen some pics of really nice tanks from Poland using this system. I have to admit I'm curious about it. I just read over the directions/descriptions of the process and am a little confused. If you use the 3 component Balling method, are they comparable to say bulk reef supplies 2 part which includes Ca, Alk, Mg?

    So these are used to supplement Ca, Alk, and Mg? No need for calcium reactor or kalkwasser etc?

    Similar to Balling dose in equal amounts.

    There is few ways to dose macroelements to reef tank:

    -Balling Methode
    - Calcium Reactor

    Or another ways:)

    Component 1+2+3+ is full Balling Methode - You don"t have to dose microelements separate - everything is inside. It's simple "plug and play":)

    Sweet! I've been out of the hobby for a few years and there are a lot of new methods out there that I was not aware of. Thanks for the info. I was thinking about going zeovit, I may have to reconsider.

    I have been using the 1+2+3 for about two week and like it, I have noticed that my coral are happier and a change for the better.

    Hello Aquaforest, I did have a question. I'm a little confused about what to dose on my system. My question is, if I am dosing np through a dosing pump, and I am dosing pro s daily, do I also need to dose pro f? Or pro bio f?

    Yes - for Pro Bio S You need to dose culture medium for Probiotic bacteria also - Pro F or -NP Pro ( Only -NP Pro from our Probiotic Line You can dose by dosing pump - 2000ml container)

    I have been using the Aquaforest products for 3+ months now and am very impressed. Their salts are the best I have used in 17yrs in the hobby. They mix exceptionally quickly without sediment and the numbers are spot on. I use the component A,B, C, Kalium, Coral A,B and E and have experienced increased PE, coloration and growth in all my SPS and all corals for that matter. At thispoint I feel for my system there is no better product going with the quality or the affordable pricing.
    I truly love these products. I know it's not just me when I hear my wife and mother in-law whom have no interest in the aquarium say that the corals look so bright and healthy.

    No I have no affiliation with Aquaforest, I am just geeking out on their stuff because it is the best stuff I have used.

    Ok so it's one or the other, it isn't both (np and pro f). And yes I have the np running on my system. In your experience which has yielded best results?

    One small question: if using Reef salt + Vodka dosing - can Pro bio S and NP Pro used together?
