Im with you,, I bought Red Sea's powder mix thinking I was saving,, then I had to buy containers to mix everything,, deal with the fact that chemicals get really hot when you mix them and it was more problems than it was worth. Back to ESV and never looking back

Del, I can understand you have no room. They sell quarts and gallons already made up.. With all the stuff to buy in this hobby. One must start thinking the cost. Buying 8 gals of Alk and 8 gals of Cal. Cost for ESV say $20 a gal would be $320 for 16 gallons together. Where SR would be $30. It's pharmaceutical grade all same stuff. Some people might have to buy Magnesium and see the price ESV charges for epsom salt. No looking back in my pockets.. Especally when the result will be same. ESV is a good product, I just can't pay $20 a gallon. When it's costing them $3 to make or cost you to buy baking soda at store....
