    Hi Tom, I used the Meersalz[not Pro-salz] briefly, but found it raised my KH too much & since it's enriched with trace elements, caused darkening in some of my corals. Bob

      I was using the Reef Salt but I only had the small boxes of it and it was like a brick. I have since switched to the Meersalz b/c I had a few small bags of it. I have not seen an increase in KH but I have noticed some darkening as Bob stated. Once I am out I will go back to Coralife/Oceanic. Coralife just for the free T-Shirt

          Tom, I use this salt, but I have observed similar results as Bob with the AB Meersalz. Reef Salt contains a lot of trace elements, so if I do bigger water changes, I also can notice darker tissue. IMO this salt works good for coloration and I use it weekly in a small water change of 3 % beside my regular weekly water change of 6,5 %.
