    What brand of additives do you primarily use in your beloved reef

    Reef chemical additives... Most of us use them, some of us don't. Just curious if the ones that do are loyal to one particular brand or is it all over the board. There is also some categories for those with more "natural" ideas.

    I am using kent marine tech a & b in my 75. I think I have had really good growth of the sps with this.
    I have however bought the brightwell to give it a try in my 180.

    The Brightwell line has worked very well for me, but I use BRS Calk/MAG/ALK and Kent's version of Purple up.

    Aquanut,

    Interesting....For those of you that were NOT aware of balling salts (as I was not), here is a link:

    Fauna Marin Direct

    This food product caught my eye:

    Fauna Marin Direct

    Have you used it?
    What LFS carries these products?

    Kirk,

    The food link isn't working for me but we carry almost every FM product.
    Deborah, the Balling Salts are back in stock. We now have a second supplier who stocks them. Hopefully, no more shortages

    Like I said your link doesn't work so I don't know what specific food you are looking at. We carry most of FM's foods though. We have liked the products we've tried and the feedback has been positive. Which product were you looking at specifically?
