    Hi all,

    So I am properly sick of not being able to purchase Triton additives because they are always out of stock and having two sets of milk jugs leak in the boxes when I receive them is not making me very loyal at this point. I currently do not follow the "triton" method but us their other methods for ca/alk/mg and trace elements. My tank is mixed but is probably 50% sps, do you think there would be a large shock from switching from triton additives to aquaforest additives flat out or should I transition over a period of a week or so? Thanks in advanced!

    If you alter the dose as needed to maintain alk, I would not expect any shock at all.

    Awesome that's what I was hoping, that would be the only thing I would be changing; my filtration and carbon dosing etc. would all remain the same. I'm happy with vinegar dosing (courtesy of your posts/articles), water changes, and my refugium so I wouldn't be doing the probiotic method of AF. Thanks Randy

    You're welcome.

    Good luck and let us know how the transition goes. :)
