H20 Exclusive has Seachem salt for a pretty good price as well.

Yes, I got a bucket of Seachem Reef for around $35.

IMO, 10x better! If you want, I've got a bucket of IO halfway used that I've been looking for a reason to stop using. It's yours for freezy if you want it. It would give me an excuse to go buy the Seachem salt at H2O Exclusive!!! ;)

IO is very consistant salt and i believe alot of the old timers use it. I believe it runs a little low on Magnesium so you would have to supplement. But thats it! I know Randy holmes farley has used IO this whole time

It basically comes down to preference in the end. Use what you want. Like I said, I use IO currently, but when this bucket is gone, to Seachem I go! ;)

H2O Exclusive is over on 14th off of Power Inn I believe. Do a search here for it and you'll find the exact address

IO calcium runs at 380 while Seachem Reef salt runs at 442.

I called H2O and they said they will be closed tomorrow because they are going to get fish and corals and such tomorrow, they will be open on Wednesday. Just thought I'd give a heads up.

DDH20cean has good numbers, so does Coralife.

Oceanic is a little high on Calcium and Mag IMO.

I use Reef Crystals.
