    Hi Guys

    Have any of you used aquamedic salt in your setup? Idol has a sweet deal on the 25kg and one bucket will have me sorted for my setup (circa 698l).

    I am setting up my 1st marine aquarium which for now will be FOWLR and possibly soft corals later

    All advice is welcome.

    Thanks

    Regards
    Breado

    I've been using that salt for many years. The KH is a bit low. Only problem. OK I do have a softy dominated system.

    For me, it is the best salt out there. There are better salts mixes based on quality, but then their price does not justify a fish only system.

    This salt, for the price, it is an awesome deal. A good salt at a good price. Not the best salt at a ridiculous price.

    Fine for fish only and softy systems, but from previous experience, low in Ca and low in Mg, but alk is fine
