    Thanks Riaan, I dont want to rock the boat here and dont mean any harm to anybody using this brand of salt, but it seems 20kg will only make 440L?

    i will confirm that, but using it on a nano and working great, with a FOWLR you can make it 1022-1024 and be ok

    I did a comparison, because the salt that I used didnt give me the best results as advertised.
    I am using RedSea coral pro salt...

    Hi Guys

    I have been using AquaFin salt for a while now and my tank is looking good, all the fish are healthy. And Corals are looking good.
    I had 2 tanks but when I used to mixed salt for the smaller tank I would take 1.1 kg of salt to 25 litres of water and 1.025 every time
    You would pay just under R300 for a 10kg bucket

    Hi guys. Im currently using Aquafin salt in a mixed reef and works great. corals and fish are all healthy. Bang for buck this a great salt. My clowns started spawning when i changed over to this salt. Very happy with the salt.
