Is there an update to the use of this salt I am thinking of switching to this. I had been using Instant Ocean but I want to switch since I want to start adding corals at some point.

Most if not all corals will do fine in instant ocean. My 40G tank was all oceanic until recently and i have zoas, frogspawn, a scoly, and a brain to get a broad range.

Great question and discussion! I looked at my oceanic salt and my coral life salt. Neither one had ingredients. My Seachem salt says that "it contains all essential major,minor, and trace components found in natural reef water, but contains no toxic or non-essential components such as nitrate, phosphate, silicate, arsenic, cadmium, beryllium". There were no ingredients listed. It specifically said that it does not contain arsenic.

good to know! I am looking for a reef salt was trying to decide between Reef Crystals and Tropic Marin. Hmmm, might have to look into Seachem
