You can ask 10 people what the best salt is and you will get 10 different answers.
The best way to mix it is put it in a bucket with a powerhead and heater (if necessary) and let it mix for 12-24 hrs.

LOL

this thread may help a bit.http://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...er-101834.html As for which salt to choose that could take years to not answer that question. Just buy something that is readily available and learn to work with it. Instant ocean/Reef Crystals and Oceanic seem to be the most popular.
