Started with Instant Ocean, switched to Seachem reef salt (super high borate content)...switched to Reef Crystals (hard time keeping Ca and Alk balanced)...switched to Kent and am pleased so far.

..but I ran with Instant Ocean in a FOWLR for 10 years and the fish never complained.

Oceanic.. I have tried IO, Kent, corallife, Crystal Seas Marinemix, RedSea.. out of all of them I have decided that Oceanic is the one to stick with.. dissolves fast.. Very balanced salt except Alk could be higher... I figure thats the cheapest to raise.. All other slats were either very low in Ca, low in Mg, too high in alk or caused some mad algae blooms.. I am Extremely happy with Oceanic and will stick with it until someone proves to me there is better out there or that its bad for my tank..
