I am running low on my hoard of All for Reef and feeling panicky...I normally dose 15 ml in my 60 gal mixed reef daily. I have used Brightwell Reef Code A/B successfully before switching to AFR. When my AFR supply is depleted would it be better to transition to the TM Balling additives instead of going back to Brightwell? Or does it matter?
I thought since Balling additives were also from TM it may be closer to what my Reef is used to?

Alk 8.0-8.4 Hanna
Ca 410-420 AF
Mg 1290-1320 AF
Sal 1.026

15 ml AFR daily. 1 ml TM BB daily and 1.5 ml nopox daily. Red Sea aminos 3-4 times week.

Thanks in advance.

@KStatefan Thank you so much I just placed an order, had to find the K element at a diff place BRS is out.

Do you know if the dosage is the same as the premixed AFR?


I do not know about the concentrations vs the premixed but from the video I would assume it is the same as the premixxed. @Lou Ekus

When you make the DIY recipe, you are making the exact same product, with the exact same concentrations as the All-For-Reef liquid you can purchase.
