I might be changing to an organic salt. Still testing. Tropic Marin has low PH and my ORP drops when I do a water change and takes 48 hours to get back in line. This new salt I used today boosted my PH and Orp came back in line in one hour. Calcium perfect DKH perfect.

Perfect stable water clarity amazing. ORP recovered in one hour . Tropic Marin took 2 days to clear up with my ozonizer. DKH 9.5 Calcium 400 Remember only a 25 gallon change. I am sure my calcium will climb with the next change.
38$ compared to 60$ on-top of it. DVRC paid members get the discount deal. he is now a sponsor of ours.
