    No experience with Red Sea but i found Real Ocean to to the job.
    Additives :kalkwasser AKA slaked lime AKA Calcium hydroxide.
    This will maintain you Ph, Ca and Alk :)

    Iv looked around...and Red Sea is the better of the two...not saying that Real Ocean is bad. But its like comparing a BMW 325I to a 330I....:lol:

    Obviously Tropic Marine is the benchmark here in S.A.
