Store K-Balance at a dry dark place with normal room temperature but basically I think storing it in the fridge will not have something to do with the low concentration. Have you already checked K+ of fresh mixed saltwater to make sure the salt you use has a adequate concentration ?

If the level does not increase you can dose K-Balance more often but allow a minimum dosing break of 2 hours between the additions and do not dose more than 1 ml / 25 us gallons for each dosage.

I did test my salt , sadly it reads couple drops lower and is looking like I'll have to switch salts. Also I tested tonight it looked like I was getting a rise but I ran out of drops, waiting on my new kits this week.

Would reef crystals be a salt I could use that's what my lfs uses and it read good in potassium but I do not know how everything else measures out.

Sorry I have never used reefcrystal but i fit has a adequate K+ level and if all the other parameters are fine if might be worth a try. Many over here do use redsea, tropicmarine or reefrsbest.

So I tested with my new salifert kit and it's still at 310, so I made a new bach of salt and I even turned over the salt in the bucket mixed it up real good and it was really low I hit 280 I just stopped.

However I did read on here what allot of people use and I went ahead and orderd Red Sea blue bucket and will arrive soon.

I'm still having a little bubble slime algae not near as bad and sand has less diatom going on , I've been taking a cup of sand out every other day as well.
But thanks again Alexander I'll continue this regiment until you think I should start doing something else.

Thanks again

Then you for the update, lets see how the tank is doing in the next couple of weeks. To support the process to increase K+ lets do some more water changes as usual, 15% 3 times within 10 days might be a good idea.
