My favorite line of products By KC on 8/7/2016KC wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThe Fauna Marin line of products is produced in Germany and it is simply one of the best for CA/Alk/Mag additions. I also use the KZ line of additives for my SPS dominated tank. I would recommend Fauna Marin to anyone -- also try the fish food, even my mandarins are crazy for it!
dissolve issues By Johnseye on 9/6/2015Johnseye wouldn't recommend this product to a friendAs another reviewer posted the recommended 500g to 4l does not dissolve all the salts by a long shot. I ended up doubling the water amount to 8l but will try adding a liter at a time for my next batch. I suspect it will dissolve with slight sediment remaining at 5 or 6 liters of water.
Perfect for a doser pump By Josh A. on 3/20/2015Josh A. would recommend this product to a friendEver since I switched to this brand I have seen a coral (SPS) explosion in growth and color. I do use the whole system with additives as recommended. Have not had to adjust dosing between batches, just increases due to coral growth

Great Stable product By Josh on 8/22/2014Josh would recommend this product to a friendHave been buying for years and this is designed to be used with a dosing system and with the same brand additives. It says right in the instructions that the whole product will not dissolve and this is normal. The mixes have been consistent with little adjustment needed when mixing a new batch.
