Saltwater mix

Hi I currently use Red Sea Coral Pro Salt and have found it great apart from some un-dissolved bits. Oh yeh, and some crazy coraline algae growth!

Are there any salt mixes out there that people would recommend or keep away from?

Cheers. Paul.

From what I've seen you are using one of the better salt mixes out there.

I use RS CP as well, and I love it.

I loved it until the price went up $15 a bucket to $70. I always order from the same store and I sent them an email about the price increase what I was told was Red Sea raised the price. I then emailed Red Sea and was informed that there had been a shortage in the warehouse but in no way did Red Sea raise the price of the salt. I have no problem paying $70 a bucket but I what I did want was a reason for the increase. I can see a dollar or two but $15? I since have switched to Seachem Reef and other than a little lower Magnesium I will stay with it since I can get a 200g box shipped to my door for $54

OUCH..... Luckily I've got a friend who works at a lfs and gets a pretty good discount, plus one of BRS's 12 days of Christmas specials was Coral Pro for $45 per bucket, so I got 5 of them with free shipping.

The only other salts that may rival it are tropic Marin and royal nature IMO. I've not used either but my buddies swear by them, more so Tropic Marin.
I've read both cause problems on occasion but no one I've met has had the problems stated online even after several years of use.
I also use Red Sea Coral Pro.
