Salt is something you have to try yourself and find one that fits your tank. I started using Reef Crystals when i changed from a FOWLR to a reef. Didnt like it, tried Seachem Reef Salt liked it but wanted to try Red Sea Coral Pro and thats all I have ever used since. I have heard good things about Tropic Marin Pro, but have not tried it. I will stay with Red Sea Coral Pro they have just reformulated it, I am on my first bucket and so far it dissolves better. I mix in a 20g Rubbermaid trash can with a powerhead, heater and an airstone. I always use RO/DI water
