Now those seem pretty close to what Petsmart sells it for.. A Store around here had a tag on it for 89.99 but it was on sale for 39.99 LOL I smell a Marketing ploy??? LOL

Depending on your local laws, that sort of mis-marking is usually illeagel.

OK i have my sample pack mixed up in my 5 gal jug.Let it sit overnight.I have a 55 gal reef tank and was wondering if i should just do 1 gal changes over a period of a few weeks or would it be ok to throw the whole 5 gal into the tank at once.Ive been using IO salt since i set the tank up over a year and a half ago and i have read that the changing of salt brands should be done gradually but not sure how gradually

I did about 2.5 - 3gals per week.. Seemed to work great as I had no problems..

Well everyone I just got back from one of my LFS's and saw something of interest. On the new All-Glass Aquariums they have advertisements for Oceanic Sea Salt. So my guess is its gonna be a widely found product probably soon. Meaning price should be considerably cheap when that happens.

Or, to paraphrase an old computer term, "Change early, change often"

Hey all,

I just got off the phone with a LFS that was supposed to carry the Oceanic salt and he said that he had been reading bad things about the salt on the internet and reef central. He does not think he is going to carry it.

He did reccomend red sea though. I thought this salt was not recommended here?

IO has been doing ok so far but I don't test for anything other than the normal stuff yet. I would like to get more corals so I want to be ready

I was just reading thu the Oceanic Post on RC and Didnt see anything bad in the numerous pages except for one guy that lost a few fish.. Other than that everything that I was reading was pretty awesome.. There is alot of pages so I didnt read them all but I read the last few and middle few.. I still swear by this.. My tank seems to be doing completely awesome and I am completely switched over to Oceanic..
