just get one of those big bags of salt from wal-mart... you can get really big bags of them for cheap and they work the same... I can't remember which kind tho so you can look it up
My reef is my expression... its a mixed bag of a bit of everthing with no clear theme all including mood swings, many odd quirks, nooks, crannies, and the best part: growth
Questions about saltwater? Wanna set up an amazing reef display and want to do it right? Just ask!

If it's for saltwater it might work while you keep damsels...but put a cephalopod in there and...

If it's for freshwater it's pretty good.

it's freshwater. I don't really think African Cichlids can survive SW, can they?

Cool find, mind measuring it out one day by chance on what is working for you, I got all that crap here at the house, epsom salt owns all.


On a SALT note, How do you administer it to your tank?

I have disolved it in a cup of tank water, just put it in there to hit the ground and dissolve, Best method I found was using a worm feeder cup w/ suction cup and put it in there, Its neat watching the fish swim through it, they actually line up and swim thru the salt "vapors", I put it infront of my filter outlet and it slowly rolls into the water column.
