There is nothing fancy or special about that salt, except the false advertising on the bucket. It does not mix to the exact same parameters as natural seawater as they say it does on the bucket.
Brightwell claims you will get 413 ca, 7.5 dKH alk and 1288 mag. In real life, people are getting around 370 calcium, 11 dKH alk and 1140 mag.

IMO, and that of many others, you are better off using Instant Ocean with it's better parameters of 400 ca, 11 dKH and 1350 mag.

370-11-1288, I don't like any of those parameters. In my opinion and for my tank that is:
too low-too high-too low

Salt works awesome... I been using it since it came out and I will not look back all my SPS that were brown are now colored up.... Water parameters are not as exact as what it says on the bucket but it's close enough and does a fantastic job my water paramaters are as fallows 460 ca, 8.3 dkh,1300 mg.... But if your corals are happy IMO stick with what you are using......
