Both are perfectly fine salts to use. I have been using regular Red Sea salt for close to 20 years. When it's not available at my LFS, I buy Instant Ocean.

Are you using ro/di water when you mix your salt water? it's kind of odd that salt mix will have nitirites in it.....

I use instant ocean reef crystals myself, cheapest salt mix I can find and seems to be good for my tank.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
