RED SEA Salt - Good or bad ?

I have been using Instant Ocean sea salt for the past month. My lfs has a sale on "Red Sea" brand sea salt, $37.88 for a 200 gal bucket.

I'm not familiar with the Red Sea brand. What do you guys think?

Its not bad. I've gone from IO to Red Sea to Oceanic and eventually back to IO. IO seems to be the most consistent one.

I've been using Red Sea for over 10 yrs. Never had any problems.

I use either red sea or Instant Ocean. Instant Ocean is cheap at my LFS. I get 60 lbs for $35.00 in bolk. They bolth do the same for me.
