we used instant ocean and it crystalized on the sides of our tank . it was horrible we had to drain our tank and scrape it off. so i do think there is a difference in salts. we use tropic marine and it dissolves so easy.you can get a 200g salt mix from big als on line for 37.99 with out shipping included.

Interesting. So your saying the IO crystilized under the water line on your tank? I have used IO for years with no such behavor.

Can you describe your system at the time and what events lead up to this?

If you have a Petsmart near you, I know that their Instant Ocean 200gal bucket is approx. $35 US ... not even sure about exchange rate, but it was pretty cheap for me here in the states. =]
