Should I switch salt? What do you use?

I'm using instant ocean right now. Though now I'm thinking of switching because I'm getting a lot of new inverts and people say IO dosnt provide a great amount of calcium. Right now I have a purple spot mantis tank and a 50g invert tank that also has two clowns. What salt would be right for me? Or should I just stay with IO?

IO's "Reef Crystals" is a lot closer to natural sea water. I use any reef grade salt mix. They all work fine. You could just supplement a little calcium and stick with IO if you like.
