Thank you!

Any recommendations when using the ReMag?

depends on size of tank and uptake. I add almost a whole 2.2kg bag every 4-5 months. If mag keeps dropping, add another handful or so to the reactor until it’s barely dropping. Then I’ll let the trident add liquid mag through dos to keep it rock solid As things grow.

I added a whole bag to my reactor on my 75/G and it kept the mag pretty close. I don’t remember dosing much at all. Very little needed.

Are people picking through this and taking out rocks and other stuff like shells and occasional styrofoam and plastic or is everyone just rinsing and adding to reactor. Pretty new to the CaRx game and bought a couple bags during black Friday. Super tedious thus far picking through and would like to know if I can just rinse and dump.

I didn't see much stuff like that in my TLF product. But it took a long time to get clear water from rinsing. Just lots of dirt.

Here's the stuff that you can still get from the LFS in the Bay Area.

Pretty easy to compare to the old reborn, which I still have a bag of. It's basically the same stuff. Price per pound as noted, which does come down to $4.50 once you hit the 15 pound+. LFS still has a bit more than a ton of the media in stock.

Well, I thought I found a source that could get it to me straight from the tropics vs via Ali (HK/Mainland China).

Was super stoked when the box arrived today but the pieces were huge.

Why does everyone have an issue with the "new" Reborn? Yes, it's finer/smaller than before, but I have no problem with that. Year ago, all we ever ran was crushed coral, and it was way smaller than the current Reborn.
