Opinions on Aqua Craft salt mixes ??

Posted 01/12/2016 at 05:37 PM by LVMAS

[QUOTE=LVMAS;24248276]I know this is an old thread but I have been using Marine Environment Salts (Aqua Craft) for about 20 years. Its worth the extra money to me. I have tried other salts. I always go back to Marine Environment. You must to give it 24 hours to dissolve before using it. That's the closest thing to a negative comment I have for the Salt. I have not used the other Aqua Craft salt mixes.

I have no opinion of the "S-15 Report". It was not a consideration....

Mikes progression through the reefing world

Posted 12/12/2015 at 11:13 PM by mcozad829

I have decided to start posting into my blog to document my experiences in reef keeping and how my knowledge and methods have changed over the years.

I started with a 46 gallon bowfront (2010) with a HOB filter, heater, and t-8 light fixture... everything kept dying and I couldn't figure out why. I started reading and started becoming aware of my issues.
After a few months I was given a reef ready 82 gallon bowfront tank with wet dry filter. The 46 was shut down and sold....

Hello Everyone.

I haven't posted in quite some time. I have ordered a new 450 gallon reef 10 foot long system. The stands have been delivered I started a Facebook page for the build because I had not seen this thread until now.

It is different then most I think 7 feet of (reef) the 3 feet of (refuge) side by side then more fuge areas in the new Seamless Sump's I have ordered because by friends unfortunately dropped my 150 gallon tank that was going to be converted...

178 hours with no power: tank saved

Posted 11/26/2015 at 10:11 AM by Sk8r

178 hours with no heat or electricity---here's how I got my tank through it.
I debated where to post this, but decided that NTTH was best.
What I used: 1 small plastic bucket, bottle of Prime, bottle of hydrogen peroxide typical strength, and a lot candles, a lot of lamp oil, two sheets, and a lot of 1-pound canisters of propane with a Mr. Heater from Ace, a hunter's propane heater.
