    I know of a few guys using it for approximately 2 years now and they claim its the best thing since sliced bread... They use to get it over the boarder but i see a non sponsor sell it now...

    Im going to buy me a bucket also as i currently use Red Sea Coral Pro

    Its allot cheaper than other brands, like nearly half the price... So I'm a bit sceptical but lets see :)

    Ive read some reviews and i must say they the people are chuffed about this salt.

    Ill see if i can get the link where they compare this to all major brands... If i remembered correctly this salt is rated 3rd best of all major brands

    Allen Wang has been promoting his brand very well.

    I am sure this brand will become a hot seller with every importer bringing it in.;)

    Good for the reefer as pricing will be competitive.
    I predict a boom for this salt then a price war as importers struggle for exclusive distributorship.
    Might be wrong.

    Don't know about the quality of the salt though.

    We are getting the SPS salt and we've also ordered the low grade aquaculture salt for those breeding fry FO, and a very cheap alternative for those culturing our phytoplankton. Where ca and mg is not an issue
    I.e a great cheap alternative for the aquaculture guys.

    That's a bit of a broad range isn't it?
