Thinking about starting this program.
i have just started dosing NO3 PO4X it has worked well on my nitrate...5-0 in 1 week.
Do i need to use the red sea salt mix, as i live in canada and i cant find a retailer.
Everything else i can get from amazon.
Shipping a huge bucket of salt would not be cost effective.
Will i get the max effect of the program with my reef crystals?

I think you will be fine using reef crystals

The salt product won't matter, as long it's of reasonable quality. The NOPOx is a mixture of vinegar and ethanol, which won't cause problems with a reasonable salt mix.

Steve the only place to get Red Sea salt locally is the store right downtown, or Amazon.

With that said, you don't necessarily need it for the program.
