Instant ocean is just fine. If all the public aquariums use it you can too. If your corals aren't doing well its likely something else in your system.

Yes, I dose calcium (DowFlake Ice melt) and alk (Arm&Hammer baking soda) but because of the SPS corals in my tank I would have to dose regardless of the brand salt I used. My point is Instant Ocean isn't lacking in anything that would have a negative affect on corals.

I use Red Sea Coral Pro have been since I had some algae issues years ago and could not git rid of them then I read that Reef Crystals has the highest levels of phosphates than any other salt. So I switched. That being said a lot of people use it with great success. I am sticking with Red Sea Coral. I have been thinking of trying Tropic Marin just to do it. I order from Drs Fosters and Smith $54 shipped

We use the tropic Marin in both of the tanks and the mix is consistent and mixes up clean. Stable calcium of 400 in the 180 fowlr. Testing at 420 in the transformed reef. Good luck. Have been using for 3 years with the same results every time. IMO, woth the extra $$
