I use IO Reef Crystals and have been happy with it. Tropic Marin or TM Pro Reef are supposed to be *the* salt.

I don't like Instant Ocean at all. doesn't fully dissolve even after 24 hours, and has high alk/low calcium.

I've switched to Oceanic and love it.

I started out with IO. Now i'm only using Oceanic salt. It disolves as soon as it hits the water. Good salt mix.JMO
