    My hang on the back skimmer is a salt-creep machine.
    Can I sell this stuff? :)

    My glass tops pull up a lot of salt.

    It's the only think holding my plumbing together. LOL


    I usually knock it into the tank. But I only have it around the in-stand-sump

    I usually just knock it back into my tank.

    It isn't good for your tank, especially if a chunk ends up landing on a piece of coral!!!!
    I through it away or knock it on the floor and vacuum eventually.

    I was thinking the same thing Coral Reefer, how could this be good? I am sure that this might even be a cause of high Nitrates in my tank!

    I try and toss mine out - brush it off the tank not in. Always knocked mine into the tank until a big chunk landed on my anemone a couple months back. He shrunk up so fast and didn't really recover for a couple days. After that - no more into the tank.
