As long as you mix/aerate for 24 hours and match the sg/temp of the tank prior to using the brand of salt mix you use is not relevant as far as a cause of death. Red Sea is about as good as any brand. Consistency of using the same salt brand is more important that the brand itself.

Update on re cycle of tank........

I've been dosing with ammonia for about 4 days now to simulate bioload and the filtration is now dropping the ammonia from 1ppm (when first dosed) to zero in less than 12 hours....just waiting for nitrites to zero (they've already spiked). Once cycled, I'm doing two 50% water changes with RO and then I'm just going to add 3 Chromis and leave the tank for 3 months before getting anymore expensive fish.

I've now read up on drip acclimation and will give that a try when adding the Chromis.....fingers crossed!!
