Purple Up?
Does anyone here use this stuff, called "Purple Up", to help coralline algae growth?
Does it help Liver Rock as well or should I stick with my Reef Energizer ?

I used it once I use a 64 oz bottle and I say no difference. I here that the Ionic 2 part suppliment works best for that.

If you use a 2 part like B-Ionic. You will get better results then useing purple up.

Purple up is horse hockey. It's the dust left over when Caribsea packages all that aragonite sand. It is impossible to have a single supplement provide a buffer, ALK, and CA in one package. It would react like cement and create aragonite sand precipitating out of suspension.
