This is really a matter of personal preference and you will get several opinions here. Bottom line...get a salt that is fast desolving and keeps Ph steady. I use Coralife.

Instant ocean. It has more concentrated minerals and other elements that occur in ocean water, and comes in an easy to pour blue container.
