Hi,

I ordered 3 buckets of reef crystal salt at July. They are high on ALK and ca. There are a lot calcium deposit on the mixing bucket wall. Did you have any complains on high alk and ca for Reef crystal?

Should I send sample back for testing?

Thanks,
Peter

I am curious too. I ended up test my RC that I bought a while back and it was 16 DHK, 500 Cal, & 1600 Mag. Thanks!

This is great to know this, considering for me anyway I don't do say 50% water changes.

I'm still using salt from the frag swap two years ago and the reef crystals suck. Hope they stay this way. The high levels will just level out when you change water anyway unless you do some pretty big ones.
