I want to switch to the Aquaforest salt brand. I currently use ESV and while I really don't have anything bad to say about it I am just getting to lazy to mix it. It's way too much work. My system is doing fine and I don't want to change anything other then my sat brand. I run a BP reactor. Can I go with probiotic salt or should I go with reef salt? Will there be any negative impacts to use probity with my BP reactor and if I am not using the rest of the AF products?

Thanks,

Adam

If you are using BP personally I would just use normal reef salt

It is ok to use probiotic reef Salt with BP, but, that salt is mainly designed to pair with Pro Bio S and Np Pro. Np Pro is a liquid polymer, essentially the same as BP, but in liquid form. It can be done, with careful monitoring and observations. The only problem I see with this is potentially bottoming out nitrates and imbalance with phosphate. Cheers

I am higher in nitrates now then i'd like to be (.8). Just added prodibio to further colonize my reactor. I'll wait it out a little first as I got the salt but am not due for a WC yet.
