No free sample here either. I just decided to switch from IO to Tropic Marin, maybe I should have waited to try this salt?

I just called Oceanic themselves and they were able to provide me with the #.. I am unaware if there is any website with the distros listed however on the Oceanic website there is a page where you can find a retailer in your area that carries their products..

here is their Phone #.. 214.320.6050 PHONE

Just got my sample in the mail yesterday and cant wait to try it after reading this thread.Of course our local petco doesnt carry this brand but i did find it online at premimum aquatics.There must be a run on it already because they are already sold out of the 200 gal buckets.

I am wanting to switch to a different brand of salt as well as, IMO, Reef Crystals and IO totally sucks. I was in the my LFS the other day (I just found this one as I didn't know it existed. Soooo excited!!!) and Oceanic is about the only salt they carry. I will definitely be picking this stuff up when I run out of Reef Crystals.

What is the name of the store and where is it located?

Ive been researching the best and cheapest place to get the oceanic salt and what I have found is www.thatfishplace.com is the cheapest, $67.04 delivered, 200gal bucket.

Anybody else find a better price?

150 gal inwall reef tank, DIY everything except the tank and skimmer, MAG-24 return, 3 1200 Maxi-jets, Turboflotor 1000 Skimmer, 100qt Igloo Cooler sump.
