Which Salt do you use?

Just wondering what people recommend for salt out there for a FOWLR tank? I currently use Instant Ocean, but I've been thinking about switching to MarineSalt or Oceanic. Just curious.

I started with oceanic and switched to Instant Ocean because of an availability issue here. I preferred the oceanic... it seemed to clear up quicker than IO... but thats just my opinion.

I use Oceanic on both tanks and it works well. If I only have a fowlr I would use what ever is cheaper in your area.

Oceanic for me. Its high Alk and Ca make a perfect salt for any coral tank.
