Is white surface foam something that just comes with using marine salt? Or is something sinister going on in my brackish tank?

2 tbs/g

I skimed it off with a bbs net for now. seems to have helped. Now that I'm thinking about it, I put a piece of dead Oak heartwood in a while back

check your water parameters just in case. do you have any significant splashing going on in the tank?

I remember some foam around where the water fell back in the tank when I used cheap salt. It usually went away after a few days.

I switched to Seachem`s livebearer salt and...no foam.
