Artificial Salt Mixes used

By: melev | Tags: salt mix

I've used a number of brands but usually stay with one I like for years at a time.  Two brands I liked: Red Sea's Pro Reef & Kent's Sea Salt.  From 2011 to 2014, I've used Sybon's Reef Formula.

Present Livestock list

Since the 400g and the 60g Anemone Cube are tied into the same sump, all livestock will be listed below. This list needs updating from time to time.

I love a mixed reef, and try to make sure the fish I buy are compatible as well as reef-safe.

RO/DI system and Water Storage

Using a 150gpd system provides 6.25 gallons per hour.  After MACNA 2012, I had a 300gpd system on hand and decided to use it as well.  Running the two systems side by side speeds up water production significantly, at a rate approaching 19 gallons per hour.
