Been using IO since the price is right. I really like the Red Sea but can not find it at a resonable price. Also like the TM but it is always over priced. I can buy 320g mix of IO with money left over for the price of 150g of TM
I use Seachem Reef Salt. However, I was fortunate to take a behind the scenes tour of the Georgia Aquarium last week. They have a 6 million gallon "ocean" tank in addtion to a ~170,000 gallon reef tank. Guess which salt they use?
Yep. You guessed it.
Good, old fashioned -- IO.
I saw pallets and pallets of HUGE bags of the stuff.
I used to use Crystal Sea Marinemix and it was fine for my Fish Only tank. When I switched to a reef I couldn't keep the SPS from dying. I switched to Oceanic and it started to thrive and virtually came back from the dead. I also couldn't keep the Chaeto from dying until I switched. No sure if it was a coincidence, but I'm not switching now. HTH
Thanks for voting boys and girls......... I have just heard some much controversy about salt was just wondering which way to go as I am getting ready to get it all fired up and want to start and stick with one salt............. But alas there seems to be much contro about everything and anything reef related drives me nuts
