Salt mix

What is the best salt mix to use when making your own salt water?

There are lots of brands out there and everyone has their own opinion. I've been using Reef Crystals since I started my SW tanks and I've been happy with it so far.

I usually get them from Petco. It can be cheaper online, though. Next time I order I was planning on getting it from Drsfostersmith.com. I think it's a few bucks cheaper there.

Yep. I mix it in a bucket with a heater and power head for at least 12 hours (usually I go for at least 24)
