I believe it was on Reef Central in one of the interesting Salt mix debates.. I would have to look back and find it but I did happen to find it in more than one place.. I will look for the exact website later..

It was in the topic "What brand of salt do you use" or something like that. Someone linked it and I just saw it yesterday. A study was done on the various brands of salt mixes. I was all set to buy Instant Ocean when I start my tank, but after reading the article, I will get either Crystal Sea Marinemix or Bio Sea Marinemix. It was a very scientific study, and I admit I didn't read it all. I did read the summary and the charts carefully. They raised larvae in the various mixes, and some mixes had more of a mortality rate than other mixes.

So I did a google search, and found the two brands I'm considering here:

I was surprised to see that they had a dechlorinator too, since RO/DI water is usually used to prepare saltwater, and I thought the use of tapwater was "frowned upon"!

If it is the same study i saw i believe i will have to see other peoples results before i will stop using my instant ocean.......i am kind of suspicious that maybe the salts they like may be some kind of sponser or something.....

There is a study out there with lots of numbers (I think it is called the S15 report) that was produced by AquaCraft Inc, the makers of Marine Environment and Bio Sea.

If your talking about Dr Ron's study of toxicity and Old Tank Syndrome...I'll let you draw your own concluions.

Not to mention that I don't think you or I do 100% water changes, which would be required to mirror the testing conditions.

Actually, I'm the one that posted the link in the other thread, and it is by Dr. Ronald L Shimek.

Here is the link again:

I belive reefs.org in conjunction with an online retailer is collecting funds to do their own study of salt mix's.
