    Pretty much (needlessly worried). What size WC do you do? They sell multiple volumes and they do come mixing instructions for both weight and volume. I got mine custom done and are the exact volume I do my WC on so I simply pour the entire contents in (in the right order).

    Robert can not get it direct IIRC, he has to go through PAN. PAN is the B.A. distributor.

    Thats pretty awesome, so they prepackage the recipe based on your WC amount or was that special cause you are Gresham? My total tank volume is only 20 gallons so I do 2 gallons a week. But its impossible to mix up just 2 gallons of salt water, or at least I believe its not a good idea to mix up small amounts. I usually mix up 8 gallons in a 10 gallon trash can and store that in my fish closet, then heat and mix it with a pump for 24hrs before I use it.

    The owners are friends of mine :) They also did custom ones for BAYMAC.

    Hmmm I think the smallest volume is 20 gallons but measuring 8 shouldn't be an issue since you have a gram scale.

    Isn't it true that DE bulbs have a higher PAR value when compared watt to watt with Metal Halide ballast SE bulbs?
