    I'm looking to try a different salt and need some suggestions, also want to cut back on spending on my tank so price is important too. The Red Sea Coral Pro sounds good but then there is the Seachem which is priced very well. On the other hand if anyone can convince me to go with the more expensive stuff I'll consider it (TM, Brightwells etc.) if its that much better.

    Tropic Marine is also a good alternative.. Or even Deltec H20

    Ive had great results with Tropic Marin. Recently switched to Microbe-Lift and am very happy with it.

    I use red sea coral pro. One of the nice things about it is that it has a high SG so you use less. It makes 660L at 1.025 where as tetra makes 660L at 1.018.. It has high parameters so alk is 12, cal is 450 etc :)

    Agree with Dave, I'm a believer of Microbe-Lift. My new tank will run exlusively on Microbe-Lift products. The price range of their products is reasonable as well :thumbup:

    I use Tetra Marine Salt.

    Dissolves better than the Seachem salt, and after making a batch and testing, the results were good. Its well priced, has a high kg/L ratio - used less to make 120L for my monthly waterchanges than i used with Seachem.

    LOL as everybody knows i am a NSW fan but through the years have tried the odd salt mix and as i have just redone my DT i had to fill up 1000 odd litres of water. Being too lazy to lug all the water from the beach i also tried the microblift and was very impressed with it. Not that i am a expert on salt mixes, the one thing that impressed me was how quickly it dissolved and no sediment layer on the top which i have found with other salt mixes that i have tried through the years.
