I just bout a 5 gallon bucket of tropic Marin pro reef salt on 5/9/22 and it mixed filthy brown I thought the Germany mix was supposed to be unaffected is it safe to use or should I dump it and get a different brand?
The clean one is just RO water to show my filters aren’t where it’s coming from then the pick in the 5 gallon bucket is after 2 1/2 cups of salt and I mixed by hand just to make sure it wasn’t from dirty equipment or anything like that and I can post the lot# when I get home
Oh, my lfs is going to replace it with a bucket of Red Sea because this is my second bucket of tropic Marin that I had this problem with so this one was a replacement and then it has the same problem so I’m just not going to use tropic Marin until they get their crap togetherLou at tropic marin usa, he deals with a lot of the customer service stuff it seems
Yeah but if you’re paying the extra price for the “Best” even if it’s safe I want a clean mix that’s why I spend the extra money either way I will move to Red Sea until all this settles out with TMelemental calamity I suspect but a man wonders if slightly, tinily tinged water is safe for bio life; a valid question nontheless.
Yeah I clean my morning mixing containers after every use so I know it was the salt but I still did the test with the white 5 gallon bucket just to be %100 sure because I thought the Germany stuff was supposed to be unaffected but it’s obviously not.I noticed last week that my 65 gallon mixing container is now stainex brown from tm German only. Cleaned it a month ago like new. What the heck is going on with them.
This was from the first bucket I bought but the seal was messed up so I went to my lfs to get a replacement because I thought it might have been tampered with because it also said from Germany but this second bucket was for sure sealed and actually seemed like it mixed worse so it’s for sure a problem with TM.Oh, my lfs is going to replace it with a bucket of Red Sea because this is my second bucket of tropic Marin that I had this problem with so this one was a replacement and then it has the same problem so I’m just not going to use tropic Marin until they get their crap together
