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

I really liked Kent when I used it. But in reality, I just rotate salt I use based on what is on sale... If nothing on sale, I'd probably go back to Kent.

I love kent salt but but dropping almost a grand on salt is insane
I haven't seen a price hike in over 2 years on salt spend your money on better things like coral and stuff

Stock up when you find it on sale. That's how I order mine...just no place to store a stockpile.

I would alternate salts. What one salt lacks, another makes up for.
