    I have no idea what the debris is. I'm not there to see exactly what it could be. I know that this is not normal for the salt. This is why I'm asking so many questions.... to help you.

    The Probiotic salt does contain bacteria in the salt. This is why it's supposed to be used within the time frame I posted above.

    I've never assumed anything my friend. I'm trying my best to answer your questions, but obviously I have to ask a lot of questions due to the fact that I'm not there with you.

    I'm pleased that your happy with the salt but I'm also trying to understand why your having some issues with it. That's all new to me .... I've never seen this before with any of their salts.

    What can cause an algae bloom like that??? Great question. Maybe you could ask Randy Holmes Farley in the chemistry forum. He might lead you to an answer on that one.

    Please do me a favor if you would. If you find out what information your looking for please let me know.

    Oh I did pick up on it. I was not aware that you had purchased the Probiotic salt and did not assume you did.

    The salt unopened will be fine. The problem comes in if it's not used within the 24 hour time frame once it's mixed.

    Kenneth I am still not sure which salt you are using from the above conversation. There are two salts reef salt or probiotic salt which people generally use. The reef salt is just a regular salt mix like other salts but probiotic one contains bacteria (thats why probiotic) and amino acids so you can not store that salt mix for long as amino acid will degrade overtime and your PO4 and NO3 will rise. On the other hand bacteria are pretty stubborn so they will survive but can give you a bloom. But with the reef salt there should not be any such issues.

    Are you using the Probiotic salt??

    Not all of the Aquaforest salts have bacteria in them.

    No the bacteria stays but amino degrades and it feeds the bacteria.
