I have used IO, Oceanic and currently I have 6 bags of Reef Crystals. They all work equally well in my experience. The only props I would give goto Oceanic for being way easier to dissolve. Its almost a powder like substance. In my experience all 3 have mixed about the same and have worked well when used on a regular wc schedule. When this salt mix runs dry I plan on trying other brands as well. Agian, in my experience, salt is salt.

Peace.

I'm moving away from Oceanic to Instant Ocean. I can't seem to get my ph to where it needs to be with it.

My CA stays at 400 with weekly PWC with Reef Crystals. But then again I only have 2 LPS and no SPS. It seems that if you have a lot of SPS you are going to have to dose for alk/ca at least eventually.

I use Oceanic as well. My calcium is around 450-475. I'm trying to bring it down a little bit though and keep it a little more stable. I'm having the same fight austinsdad right now. I used purple up for a couple of weeks and man, that through my calcium through the roof! Droped my ph down to about 7.3. I really like Oceanic because with all of my corals I dont have to dose calcium and it desolves really well.
