I went from oceanic to IO because I could get it MUCH cheaper. I liked the oceanic a little better. More CA and dissolves easier. When doing 150 gal water changes I tend to follow the "deal".

IO - usually - very stable pH. Just bought Red Sea because that was what was available - pH won't hold. I've had this issue before with Red Sea.

Switched from IO to Coralife (for me also easily available), ph has been much improved since the switch (now I run 8.2-8.3 easily). Calcium/alk also much higher now.
