    Hi

    Has anyone used Red Sea Salt? If so, what has your experience been with it?

    I see they have a product for Corals as well.

    So many brands to choose from :whistling:

    I have started my tank the beginning of the year with only Red Sea Salt, and so far things are developing quite nicely, so from a beginners perspective, i dont see any problems yet...

    We have knowledgeable customers that swear by it & their aquariums are beautiful as well, so YES not a bad comment on RED SEA salt at all.

    We are so spoiled for choice now!!:thumbup: just a few years ago quality, variety and availability was a major problem:( The MARINE TRADE ARE SLOWLY GROWING UP:)

    The Red Sea corral pro is better , has higher cacium level and should be used when using R.o water.

    I'f used it before and never had any problems with it.Does take some time to mix with the R.O water.Make sure to heat the water up to the right temperature before mixing it with the salt,it will make your life easy!

    I buy all my stuff at panarame pet shop, the stock all red sea stuff at good prices, they really do birds and reptiles, so they do not try and screw people with there prices. The price might have changed, but when i was there two weeks ago it was that price, i bought my one about 2 months ago

    Well, I decided to go with Tropic Marin. Hope it's good!

    Thanks for all the comments. I am sure I am going to sample a lot of the salt brands out there ;)
