Crazy what a marketing video can do

Not sure if it is a demand or a supply issue though

Lou Ekus from Tropic Marin has said the supply has been there but the demand has gone way up, but BRS posted on facebook yesterday that is was a bottleneck in supply.

I switched to IO Reef Crystals, slow change of 3 water changes over 3 weeks . Everything is doing great, possibly better to be honest.

I doubt I will ever go back to TMP, to costly and honestly I saw less coral growth with it.

Same here.
Found a bucket of TMP, $179.00.
Not a chance I’d buy that.
Salt is salt, but reefers, all different.

I don't doubt the quality of Tropic Marin but it feels like the same issue as i saw with Triton. Despite really hoping to give the method a try i'm not about to cause needless instability due to not being able to get the product.

Instant Ocean is everywhere, I wouldn't be surprised to see it on the shelf at the grocery store it's that available. In fact I may stop at customer service next time I'm grabbing some steaks for the grill and ask them to start carrying it.

BRS has been pushing this salt quite hard recently, and it was already very popular, I would hang in there, they should have stock soon.
Early April is probably the soonest. Anything earlier will be icing on the cake. Customs is a joke right now

I called BRS to see if they had a secret stash. No such luck. I was told that the delay was because of the new packaging on the smaller quantity boxes. I said “you mean the same packaging that they have been using for a year”? I would have gone with pandemic or weather. Lol

The truth is that they have had a year to get their act together. No problem finding it in Canada and the EU. They haven’t figured out a way to serve their best market and in my opinion that’s on management.

I think it’s a distribution issue.

Interesting, less cost and better growth? I’m in!
