[APD] KCl and shrimp

Looking through the archives, there are a number of discussions of the use
of KCl versus K2SO4. About the only reason to not use KCl was that some
people claimed to have mysterious shrimp deaths with KCl. This was
controversial, and no one seemed to understand the cause. Some thought
there might be contaminants in the KCl. It doesn't appear the issue was
ever resolved.

KCl is super cheap. I saw it at Home Depot this weekend at $6.40 for a
40-lb bag, and would love to use it. Does anyone have any new insights on
the mysterious shrimp death controversy?
