You just need a marine salt mix.

You could ask a thousand people on which is best and get 1001 responses, it's a very personal preference and there have been many debates over which is "best." They all have advantages on their own, like say one may add more calc to your water than others, or somethin along those lines.

Do some research on here, I believe there was a thread here or somewhere on the net of someone who did a very in-depth testing of various salt mixes and what they had in them.

My advice is try several different ones and see how you like them

They are not all the same. But there is not any one type that is the best. They all have their pro`s and cons. Just IMO find whats close to you or something you can pretty well be accessible to. I use Oceanic but marine salt is one of those things that if you ask 10 people which is best you`ll get 11 different answers. LOL
