Hey all, I'm a bit out of touch with salt, what brands are currently available in the shops?

Thanks.

I am going to try the Blue Treasure SPS.

I think the popular one is the Red Sea.

Seachem, Red Sea salt and coral pro, Blue Treasure, Sera salt and Aquaria has their own brand. Sure there are more availible on the market but those are the ones I am aware of.

I must say, I've changed over to Blue Treasure because of the reviews on it on this forum, and because I had to make 400L of water to fill my new system, so price was a big tipping point.
But I found the salt to be very "dirty" and it takes long to dissolve, if it even does.

To the Mods, it's not a sale post, its opinion on salts and grades used for DIY chemicals
