I have a friend who uses this product whenever he starts up a new tank.i have been on the frence on trying it myself as i am a man with patience but he is a firm believer in this product and i must say his tanks are a vibrant purple.

so while at a friends house we lloked up the ingredients of the purple up and it is much more than just calcium and magnesium.there is also strontium and iodine in proportions that complement each other.just thought i would throw that out there in case these are things you already dose or dont dose at all.
