    Are you having any issues? If not, then probably no need

    It is not enough to get it from the salt once-in-a-while. The organic carbon will be quickly used and then stuff with die off. If you are going to carbon dose, do it directly and consistently for the best results. If you do, be sure not to go too quickly nor bottom the numbers out, but at 50n and 1+p, this is not a worry for a while.

    Fuge with Cheato would work. If you have the room in the sump. Hows your skimmer?

    I don't think the probiotic salt should be used when your system has high nitrates/phosphates as it has amino's and such in it that will contribute to those problems. I would switch to reef salt until you can get those params down.

    Probiotic salt is designed for ULNS
