I had a pretty good supply of Tropic Marin Pro-Reef Salt for awhile and didn’t realize there is such a shortage until I just attempted to buy some online and have been unsuccessful finding any. I am very low and don’t want to resort to skipping water changes, especially since they are sufficient for me to maintain my parameters without dosing.

Anyone aware of availability anywhere?

I've read on here that there is a shortage straight from the supplier. May get worse before it gets better. However it looks like you can still get some on ebay.com

Here you go. I just ordered a bucket from here. I don't know if it's legit or not, but I did use PayPal so I am not too worried.

The price doesn't make sense. The product graphics on the bucket are different from those on the TM web site. It is possible TM changed their graphics and not updated their web site. Maybe "if it's too good to be true, it's too good to be true". Buyer beware.

So I bought 2 buckets from my LFS back in December and am running out. This whole time I thought I was using Pro Reef but when I tested my dKH yesterday twice on the fresh mix it was 9.9 dKH. I thought my bucket was messed up (hadn't tested fresh mixed salt ever) but it turns out that I've been using Tropic Marin Classic this whole time.....the devil is in the details I suppose lol. So anyone know where I can get more Classic mix?

I've always used classic. Miss the days of getting it for under $60 from Dr Foster Smith.

Put notifications in on all websites you use then jump on them quick. Aquarium specialty sent the notification, I jumped in it and purchased. BRS didn’t which is strange but I checked there and also grabbed one. Check emails often
