    Just a question but could it be that that part of the essentials need to be keep at a certain temperature ? So that I won’t do that ?

    This product is pretty dilute, but the alk part of many two parts is close to saturation and very cold temps can precipitate some (it will dissolve in the tank). That is not what you are seeing the the seawater.

    Ok then I have no idea what would be causing the exact same ( at least it looks identical) bacteria or whatever it is in the tank water as the Essentials #1.

    I think I will clean the contaiers very well and go back to regular 2 part dosing and see how it goes for another month. If i clears up I would have to be part of whatever is in the Essentials dosing.
