    Thats pretty much it...
    Add Sodium Chloride, wait till dissolved.
    Add Magnesium Sulfate, wait till dissolved.
    Add Part A, mix for a minute
    Add Part B, mix for a minute

    Mines all mixed but I don't have time tonight to do the water change. Tomorrow morning. :D

    I'll try some out soon enough. I want to give aquavitra a good shot first.

    ...btw, anyone how Salinity smells substantially different than other salts? (my experience is with SC Reef salt and TMP). It almost has a plastic/synthetic smell.

    FWIW Steve Rudy @ CoralReefEcosytems (.com) in Guernville has ESV salt.

    But it doesn't suggest using it right away, right? Mix for a day before using in a tank?

    Scope the last line:

    I imagine I will usually mix it over the course of a day - Sodium in the morning, Mag and the rest in the evening. Bubble bubble all day long.

    His prices are very good.

    Bayside Marine distributes it on the West Coast :)

    I remember some of the more experienced people on nano reef saying they keep some around in-case of emergencies just because it doesn't need to be mixed for more than 10 mins

    You can use it after 10 minutes, but you don't have to.

    Yeah, of course otherwise it wouldn't do very well in your tank 8) . But I'm just saying, might be good to keep around for emergency for those who don't/can't keep salt water mixed all the time.
