Those are some pretty good numbers out of the box, Steve. I ordered some Oceanic and should get it by the end of the week. I will post those so we can have a comparison.

Just to update this thread for future browsers...

I just tested a fresh batch of Oceanic. It's been mixing since yesterday afternoon and is from the bottom of a 200 gal bucket. The batch is about 15 gallons.
pH - 8.2
PO4 - 0
Alk - 2.5
Ca - 420
Mg - 1380
Temp - 80F
SG - 1.025
pH and Alk were done with SeaChem kits and Salifert, PO4 with a Hagen test kit, and Ca and Mg were done with Salifert kits.

Thanks for the update cmor. I am in the process of changing over as well, so I will post some numbers when I get a chance as well.

I recently setup my 86 gallon with Oceanic salt. I got the 200 gallon bucket. The tank has been running for a week. pH is 8.2. SG is 1.025 Nitrites and Nitrates are both at 0. Alk is 2.75 I'm really happy with the salt.

has anyone ever tried Red Sea salt? or have an opinion on the brand? I just bought a bucket enough for 200 gallons and now I'm wondering if it's any good since I haven't seen anyone talk about it on these posts!
