Can you mix salt? I got a sample pack in but haven't used it since I use IO.

www.thatfishplace.com is the cheapest, $67.04 delivered, 200gal bucket
Dang that is expensive.. It is about 32.00 to 40.00 here per 200gal bucket.. Call Oceanic and Find out the distributors # in your area and give them a call and find who has it locally...

Send a message via MSN to Brisc0
I am currently using reef crystals in my tank but would like to try out the oceanic. its time to buy a 200 gal bucket and my LFS has the oceanic in stock. Is there any "no-nos" regarding switching salt brands, I.E. if I did my typical 30gal change and used the Oceanic will there be bad chemistry with the other 100 gallons of RC thats in there?

I would only do maybe a 1/4th or your normal water change.. Depending on tank size about 5gals per week for 1 month.. Then go back to your normal water change schedule.. The Oceanic salt is pretty low in Alk so make sure you watch that..

What is the name of the store and where is it located?
The name of the store is called Suncoast Aquariums: http://www.suncoastaquariums.com

It is located in Panama City Beach right on Hwy 98 in the Promenade Mall across from the Ocean Opry.

I just found it last week. They don't have a sign up at the front of the mall and its not in the mall directory. Really weird 8O. I stumbled upon it last week when I was looking for alternative fish stores in the yellow pages. There was one called Poseidon's Reef in the yellow pages and when I called it, I got Suncoast. Apparently they bought out Poseidon's Reef and then renamed the business.

I am heading over their now and will check on the prices...

Get this all.. I saw it at Pet Smart they told me they're gonna start carrying it.. Haven't checked out a price yet cause Darin at Caprive Reefs isn't very far from me So Its safe to assume he'll give a far better deal.

I used my 5 gal sample and I have to say that it dissolved immediately. I am pleased with it so far, and if I can find it locally I may support my LFS...

Well my LFS carries it for $15 for a 50 gallon and $29 for a 90 gallon mix. Pretty good prices considering that Reef Crystals is more expensive!!
