Clean mallet. How old is the salt? Did it get dirty as well? I wonder if I would use it myself or just toss it. Maybe a fish only system.
Anyone have any good ideas of how to break up a tub of reef crystals that have become as hard as a rock in its tub. I am guessing that the lid was not tight and moisture got into it. It is hard as a rock and tried breaking it up with hammer and screwdriver with little success. Any suggestions, besides throw it out and get a new tub.
I wonder if you could flip the bucket and knock the sheet out of it with a hammer and get the whole clump to fall out. Then just drop into some water and dissolve it with a powerhead. I've got a similiar bucket about 1/3rd full that I'm going to have to figure out how to deal with it as well.
That's what I think and I think I'm right
If you do manage to crush it into usable particles it will be low in calcium, alkalinity and magnesium. When salt solidifies it forms non water soluble crystals that will only dissolve if you radically lower the pH. It would still be usable but you will need to supplement the big three and most likely the trace elements will also be low.
Didn't know if salt got solid it could lose elements in it
