Salt opinions

Gonna transfer everything from one of my tanks to another, should I use the same salt for the safety of the fish or does it even matter? And I'll take anyone's personal preferences of types of salt lol

A long as the temp, salinity and pH are the same it doesn't matter which brand salt you use.
I use regular Red Sea salt and have been using it for close to 20 yrs.

There is no one better than all when it comes to salt mixes. If it was we all be using it. They just have their trade offs. I use Oceanic salt. Do a search on the site about salt brands and you`ll find many with everyones opinions on theirs.
