Salt, Supplements, and Conditioners

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to get opinions on various brands/products of salt, supplements, and conditioners.

Personally, I use Aquavitro Salinity for salt, the entire Aquavitro supplement lineup, as well as their conditioners. I also use Seachem's prime and stability, as well as reef trace. And, yes, I am aware all of these products are made by the same company :P

Products I've tried and liked include Kents marine trace elements, red Sea reef salt, and red sea's coral colors kit.

Anyone have input or other good brands? I've heard that zeovit is pretty prestigious

Brands in terms of what exactly?
I'm a fan of my Hanna checkers for doing water tests and love my Milwaukee digital refractometer.
Zeovit is an entire system of nutrient management.

Lineups of products, or if anyone uses various different brands, like if they've chosen the best of the best for everything you need in your tank.

I want to get the Hanna digital nitrate checker, but I'm not made of money haha

Other than that, I just wanna hear what people use, and what they think is a quality product. For example, like I said, I use aquavitro salinity, and it's the best salt I've ever used (in my opinion).

When it comes to salt, I'm really liking my first run with Brightwell.
Seachem for Purigen, Phosguard.
I like Eshopps skimmers.
