Any of the reef grade salts should be fine. I've used Oceanic, Reef crystals, Kent, Coralife, Red Sea Coral Pro, D&D, Tropic Marin, and a few I can't remember, all with no Ill effects.

I'm using Fluval Sea salt.

Just go for any "good" brand. I mean thoses ones that don't contains PO4 and NO3, and contains enough Mg,KH,Ca.

I've been using brightwell aquatics neo-marine for a while now with good results but before that I used tropic Marin pro reef also with good results I just find the neo-marine better value for money there's 7.5kg for the same price as 4kg compared to the tropic Marin and I tend to use less of it !
