Best salt mix

I am just curious as to see what salt mix everyone uses and think is the best and why they chose that salt

I like reef crystals because it almost eliminates the need for two part due to high levels of elements and it mixes clear and fast and is very cheap

I use Red Sea coral pro. Used to use reef crystals. IMO they're both fine and work. I have to dose needless though. There really is no one best salt mix. They all have their benefits and shortcomings.

I agree that all salts are different and have pros/cons, I just thought it would be cool to see everyone's opinions. I don't have to dose due to the fact that I have a low to medium demand tank element wise

I like Oceanic. Low on alk, but mixes clean and leaves no residue, unlike Instant Ocean products, and many others do.
