Kent Sea Salt: New Formula question


Oct 4, 2010
Hi there, does anyone else use Kent salt in their tanks? It appears that they have altered the formula slightly in the past month or so with the goal to, according to their website, increase reef health. From what I could calculate they increased levels of calcium, strontium, and magnesium by between 50 and 100 ppm from their previous value (almost identical to true sea water). I was hoping someone here might know whether this change could be an issue for cuttlefish health? I have a number of both s officianalis and s pharonis between hatchling and juvanille stages. Thanks for any help.
