    I've been using reef crystals for about a year and have noticed a brown film in my mixing bucket. Does this happen with a brands of salt? Is there a better brand of salt I should be using?

    I always wipe out the inside of my bucket with a paper towel when I'm done. I have noticed I get a film that will develop if I don't. I use the ESV B-Ionic salt mix.

    Same here with Instant Ocean, Reef Crystals, and Crystal Sea. Always wipe and rinse my bucket before and after each use.
