I used to use instant ocean but it wouldn't dissolve all the way so I switched to the kent reef salt and it dissolves fast the waters clear and it has all the trace elements I need to keep my coral happy. I only have a bio cube though so depending on the size aquarium u have you might have to add stuff. It's cheep and it's been working pretty good for my aquarium

Are you using the stock t5s? They don't make a good retrofit kit for this size so it will have to wait until I set my 44 gallon up again. I have metal halides for that. I've found 1 retrofit kit for this aquarium but I don't have much faith in LEDs

I have the stock pcs but if you keep your bulbs fresh they will grow the SPS Coral just fine
