    I just had a look at the salt that the LFS has its from a company called aqua-system(aqua-system.net for more info althou its useless unless u can read Chinese) its quite cheap but everything on the packet is in chinease its called pure salt. althou on the bag it does give some figures and amounts to add to water for the mix. on the packet it has the make up of the salt as per below.

    Mg chloride
    Magnesium sulfate
    caclium chloride
    sodium carbonate
    potassium cloride

    I dont have the exact figures but will get them and some pics. anyone have any ideas on this salt?

    Never heard of it and if you can't read the detailed contents, then not worth the pain

    On the bag it apparently reads

    MgCl 120g
    Mg sulfate 170g
    CaCl 15g
    NaCarbonate 6g
    Potassium Chloride 6g
    Sodium Chloride 6g
    1 bag = 25 liters
