  • crystal sea marinemix

    hi
    does anyone of you ever had any problems after using the "crystal sea marinemix" salt (Marine Enterprises International)?

    it is a quite new salt on the german market and some guys report on coral bleaching after using it.

    since this salt is available in the u.s. for many years i would like to ask you if you have heard about similar problems.

    It is not good salt IMO. I tried it and experienced the bleaching problems you are referring to. Do a search on Reefcentral.com and you will see that alot of other people have had problems with it also.

      hi

      i tried to search on reefcentral but i gave up after i got 20 times the "too busy"-page

      did you change more than 5% of your tank when you used crystal sea marinemix for the first time?

      what salt did you use before?

      did you get the bleaching problems after the first use of crystal sea marinemix or later? were all sps affected by it?

        Hi Malte, I have never used this salt, but a good reefer friend of mine switched from Kent's brand of salt to Crystal Seas with many of his SPS RTN within the first wk He Had performed about a 25% in his 300g system, without any other changes. Bob

          I used Kent salt before I tried the Crystal Sea. I changed 10% and had the bleaching and lost 2 SPS colonies. I have mixed Kent, IO, Reef Crystals and Oceanic in the past and never had the same negative results. I now only use Reef Crystals and I am happy.
