    J,
    I can't fine a picture but it is not a salt.
    This product is saying that it eliminates hair algae and is safe for all marine species, works in 2 to 4 weeks, Not a chemical and it's live bacteria. Consists of live, non-pathogenic, natural bacteria that OUT COMPETE hair and string algae for nutrients. Not intended for a cycle or start up. says it is a TLC Aquarium and Pond Product Westlake, OH
    I could not find it in a search but found my old old bottle and typed in what is says.

    I used SAT and it worked but I believe it was a factor in wiping out my cope pods. It was the only thing i changed at the time and the tank and sump area went from seeing pods on all surfaces at most any time to only seeing 1 or 2 if i was lucky. Not very scientific but worth noting and it could have been loss of food source and not actually the SAT. PS I wrote about this product many moons ago look at old posts I also include a pic i think it was in the hair algae post in the general section.

    Couple of quick points:
    a. Pods are way down again
    b. Did see large die off in fuge
    1. started with algae on the walls of fuge
    2. seemed like the algae below surface next
    3. hair algae in tank dieing off slowly
    All water parms are right where they need to be but once the algae is gone I am going to poly filter the tank and I will not recommend this to anyone with a reef and fuge. It doesn't seem to affect corals, inverts, or fish, but my turbos are moving slower and I lost one ( the loss maybe to last emerald in tank because it happened in his area and he hates everyone in the tank.
    My advice to all is too use caution with this product and remember that RO does not remove phosphate you also need to di the water and I found my Di not working which was the source of my hair algae.
