OK so the dealer in HK doesnt have the Probiotic Reef Salt or the Reef Salt, Im guessing because the shipping cost is too high. What other salts can we substitute for them?

This is a really good salt. It has (NSW) params. like AF Reef Salt.

Bulk Reef Supply is running a great price on this right now for Black Friday.

A lot of people use Tropic Marin Pro Reef too.

I don't live in the States. I live in Hong Kong so might be difficult. What about Reef Crystals or Tropic Marin?

Tropic Marin Reef Pro is a great salt.

Tropic Marin Bio Actif is similar in theory to AF Probiotic. The TM Bio must be used per there directions. Not for huge water changes.

It has a carbon source in the salt mix.

I did a big water change with it once. Got an unbelievable bacteria bloom from all the carbon at one time in the salt mix. It and took 3 months to get my reef back.
