Reef salt

What reef salt do you prefer? I'm looking between reef crystals and Kent's reef Salt mix, what's the difference?

Both are good choices. I like Coralife myself.

Kent's is a little higher in all its elements. I've been using Kent for 10 months now and I'm perfectly satisfied with it.

That data is over 3 years old...... I use Red Sea Coral Pro, and it's nothing like what that table states. My last test of mixed salt (last week - freshly opened bucket) was 1.026/430/11.6/1420.

I think I'm gonna go with Kent's.

Higher trace elements are good.

It can become quite the annoyance right above the sandbed though at times. Especially if you keep lots of corals on the sandbed making it hard to see them at times haha
