This is more of a comment for aquaforest and their users but as the title states, this weekend i had to make up a new container of Reef Mineral Salt and ran into an ambiguous labelling issue. In some cases the directions state to mix MG with your Calcium and on some it instructs you to mix MG with the Reef Mineral Salt. I derived the info from the back of the containers themselves, the supplied documentation and also on the back of the box component strong is sold in.
I am aware that you're able to use either but for ease of understanding i'm a little surprised the labels aren't more clear about this as it had me confused which way was right.

Hello,
You can mix it in both ways:

New recipe (from almost 5 years):
1. Calcium+ traces (Strong A and Strong B)
2. KH Buffer + traces (Strong C)
3. Magnesium+Reef Mineral Salt + traces (Strong D)

or old recipe
1. Calcium+ Magnesium+ traces (Strong A and Strong B)
2. KH Buffer + traces (Strong C)
3. Magnesium+Reef Mineral Salt + traces (Strong D)


Here is video tutorial:

I appreciate the response and admit the product i have is likely around that 5 year old mark. If the new recipe has it stated as an optional either way then the issue sounds to have been resolved.
 

Does it matter to you whether your fish are captive-bred or wild caught?
