coralife salt mix

OK I have read a bundle of stuff online some good and some bad... what I want to know is has anyone used coralife salt mix? And if so did you have problems? I have some stores that have it on sale right now for 22 bucks for the 150 gallon bucket. I don't want to get it if it will have a bad out come with my tank

I just used that salt mix to fill up my 90g fowlr tank. So i can't really vouch for it yet, it did dissolve pretty quickly though. LOL I'm not sure I would trust it for a full reef tank but if you have some fish and a couple corals I think it might be ok to use. Not sure about the levels of calcium, alaklinity etc....

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I have tried several brands of salts there isn't that much difference in them I have used most of them at one time or other. Right now I am using instant ocean because I got a good deal on it. If I had a tank of acro would be choosier but I don't so I am not that picky.

OK thanks for the in put I did more reading and I guess coralife has changed there mix from how it was in the past and is now testing to make sure all there mixes are better and they have a new formula I don't know but I guess I will stick with what I know as a good one
