    Hi all bros/sistas,

    Im currently using Red Sea components. Mainly the Red sea salt (blue pail) and Foundation A B C.

    Im slowly switching to Aquaforest. Currently, Im dosing Pro Bio S daily, dont dare to dose NP pro for now. Going to switch to AF Salt when my Red sea salt finishes (6 more WC i guess).

    Tank is mainly SPS and some LPS. Can I ask what are the recommended parameters for AF? getting quite mixed info and its not helping when red sea parameters can be quite aggressive for mixed reef. Not chasing numbers, but more as a guide.

    Im looking at around :

    8 dKH
    430 CA
    1350 MG

    If i switch to AF, which components should I be using. The KH+, MG+ CA+ series, Component ABC or component 1+ 2+ 3+ (liquid). There is a online calculator for AF but they recommend a mixture of both products.

    Getting really confused! All inputs are greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Mix your own component 1 2 3. Cheaper that way. Dose approximately 100ml for each 300 litre tank water per day and observe from there. Adjust accordingly.

    Thanks for the reply bro. I find the 5L ones not very eco friendly. Lol

    You can buy all the AF components from EastOcean.

    You will need the following:

    Buffer
    Calcium
    Magnesium
    Reef mineral salt
    Component strong (comes in a pack of 4 bottles)
