feelin salty?

I was wondering what type/brand of salt do you guys use?? Iv been using instand ocean and recently got a small box of instant ocean reef crystals because the calcium levels are being depleted fast with my regular water changes!

What do you guys prefer and why????

I use instant ocean too because it's there (at LFS) but I would like to get something more "premium" in the near future to start preparing for corals.

I use Oceanic. I think it dissolves easily and clears quickly.

When/If I start I'll use IO Reef Crystals, one of the cheaper ones.

However, if I wanted to get pricier salt I'd get Tropic Marin, not the reef one though

I use Oceanic because of the higher calcium. Just so we know there is no one great marine mix out there. They all have their pro`s and cons.
