I bought Vibrant for saltwater from my lfs guy earlier and dosed my reef not realizing there's actually a reef version! We discussed my reef and the Vibrant so I assumed it was what I needed. Are my corals or inverts in any danger???
They are fairly secretive about it (perhaps not fully understanding the product themselves), but the product seems to be a type or mix of bacteria. I have no information on suitability of different versions for different uses, or whether there even is a difference.My question is the difference between the saltwater only and reef formulas. Hopefully it doesn't kill my corals or inverts. Thankfully the tank isnt too stocked up at the moment.
I bought "Saltwater" without knowing there was a "Coral" version. Regardless, I have great success of using it to get rid of most GHA from my 20gallon mixed coral tank. Most likely I could be wrong, I thought I read a post saying that the "Saltwater" version is stronger than the "Coral". That's opposite to your finding. If you can point me to the article (post), much appreciated.Im about 50 pages deep in the 300+ page vibrant thread...the company says the only difference is saltwater is less than twice the strength of reef. People have way overdosed this stuff with no immediate ill effects. I'm thinking with only having dosed once anyways, I will be ok. 24 hours so far and everyone looks well. My water was crystal clear this morning.
