    Hi Sean, I doubt any of the sponsors stock these chemicals. Your best bet in the big suppliers such as protea chemicals etc. Only snag is minimum order of 25Kg bags.

    What type of quantities are you looking for?

    Dunno Marius, basically to be able to run my tank, maybe enough stock to last a month. Am still busy trying this Calculator thing to determine how much is needed.

    Thanks for the "protea chemicals" name

    These are the only ones you'll need. But to buy Potassium chloride and Strontium Chloride and Boron in bulk wil be a waste, even for your nano on steroids ;)

    So only get Bicarb, Calcium Chloride and Magnesium Suplhate and Mg Chloride.

    And if you want potassium chloride you can get a product from Dischem. Its called "Natures choice, No-more salt".

    Thanks marius.iv been looking everywhere for potassium chloride..nice to know..pity it's two days after I bought Brightwell potassium.lol

    Will the diskem option be pure or is there a chance of any fillers in product.

    I'm also interested in knowing where to get strontium and boron as well

    It only lists potassium chloride as the ingredients. I assume its pure. Been using it for a couple of months now and no issues. It is used as a salt replacement for people who cant use normal salt due to the sodium.
