    i've been using tropic marin pro-reef since day one. MCF had it for a good price and I bought a bunch of it when they closed down. I am going to pick up a couple of buckets of Salinity since @Sho Tank has such a good deal going on. I'm curious to see how my tank responds after the first couple of changes. I plan to slowly work it in to limit any impact.

    I use Salinity and have been for over a year. I like that it makes 225 gallons at 1.025 and the chemistry for each batch are found on the label and online. I find that I need to dose less which also saves me money on Calcium & Alk. When you take a look at how much a bucket of salinity costs versus how much Instant Ocean salt needs to be used to make 225 gallons of water with a specific gravity of 1.025, the difference in cost is miniscule. It's a better value with better composition and more benefits.
