Coralife vs. Instant Ocean for reef?

Postby Studioksr on Thu Dec 30, 2004 11:00 am

I bought some Coralife by mistake awhile ago instead of Instant Ocean, which I have used for several years. I haven't opened it, and have wondered if I should try to return it (dont have receipt anymore, got it on with a coupon . . .)

Has anyone used this for a reef tank?

I tried it once, same way as you, the store was out of IO, I used it and had problems with white floaty things that had to be strained out before I put it my tank. They could have been harmless, but who wants to take that chance? The water tested fine. Denise

Hmm, that sounds odd. I think I will probably end up opening this container. i will watch for this stuff.

I always had big white flakes at the bottom of my mix from Reef Crystals and IO that I would try to avoid putting into the tank, but they were at the bottom.
