What brand of salt do you use?

There seems to be lots of brands to choose from and I was curious what everyone uses?

There are a lot of brands and a lot of people have different prefrences.

I use Reef Crystals and have nothing but great results, healthy corals, and crazy coraline growth for a new tank.

I use Instant Ocean, but am going to try Oceanic next for hopefully higher CA levels.

Instant Ocean, although I have recently been using Seachem Reef Salt and Meersaltz with great results.

I have heard nothing but good from both Oceanic and Seachem, as well as RC and Tropic Marin.

I use IO, which I havent had any particular problems with. I was thinking about trying Reef Crystals, but saw a report online somewhere that did a lab test in IO and Reef Crystals, and said Reef Crystals had little to No difference to IO.

I use oceanic because it seems that I can do just PWC`s and not need to add supplements to it. Example is that my calcium stays at 450 with weekly PWC`s whereas with IO it would only stay around 300-350.
