I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

So the price I been paying is about right ....I get the 200 gallon box ...I was paying 20.00 for a bag that makes 50 gallons from local fish store which was kinda exspensive ...does anyone notice a big difference between the brands?

I use tropic marine Bio actiff it is expensive but night and day in a reef tank compared to reef crystals if your running a fowlr tank instant ocean is the cheapest and the fish don't care

Since my LFS stopped carrying regular Red Sea salt, I now order 2 200g boxes at a time of Instant Ocean from Drs F&S for $80 shipped.

I switched from red sea coral pro to reef crystals. I had alkaline levels of 15 with red sea, now they are around 8. I may switch and mix 50/50 instant ocean with oceanic as that may give me a little higher alkalinity. I noticed my calcium am mg are more stable with the reef crystals. I get mine from dr fosters but think I am switching to BRS as it is a dollar or two more but you get points towards future purchases.
