Started off using tropical Marin now I switched to instant ocean reef crystals. Just did my first water change with that salt so I'll like to see the results. Water looks clearer already

I was using reef crystals from the start and recently switched to ESV 3 months ago.
Reason for Switch is that I got 3 boxes of ESV at same price I normally paid for Reef crystals. So I figured why not try it out. The only thing I like is the short mix time. I can't say if there is any noticeable change with the tank.

i'm trying out ESV on the new setup, we'll see how it goes.
But i am curious why no one is using coralife anymore? That seemed the be the way a lot of ppl were going.
i ran out and have a hard time finding it, even.

Tried ESV, too much work! Mixing salt is a PITA anyway but ESV takes it to another level.

Red Sea Coral Pro for me.
