Hi been using aquaforest reefsalt lately my params are a bit all over the place
Calc 410
Mag 1500 plus
Nitrates 5ppm
Kh 7.3
I have only had mainly softies but Saturday added
5 sps and around 10 lps and 2 magnifica  anemones. I have been given a 22kilo of redsea salt and 22kilo of redsea coral pro so will be switching to these . Should go with the sea salt or coral pro or try mixing half and half to try and get a balance . Any idea,s please ????

I wouldn’t mix it you will probably gets messed up levels when you mix some fresh salt water up.

I would go for Red Sea blue

Why U changing salts? Aren't the Red Sea salts up to 12.6 kh? U could end up shocking things if u currently running lower kh. Did u ever find your AF salt making the water a tinge of brown?
