I buy Kent Reef Salt for 44.95 from Drs. F&S and always find something for 5 more $ and they ship it free to my front door. When I lived in an apartment the guy carried it up 3 flights of stairs. It about killed him off. Free shipping for any purchase of $49, including salt...anything.

I started my first saltwater tank with Instant Ocean ( 1985) and have been using it ever since.
I do use Reef Crystals in my 50.

i really don't understand. it starts out with fedex. then goes to my local post office. my old mail girl wouldn't deliver it. she said it was to heavy and i had to go to the post office and pick it up there. my new mail man is a old guy. he said he didn't care. i meet him at the end of my drive way and help him move them

It has something to do with the program called "smart mail".
When I order my salt like you do, in the checkout part there is a question that asks if the address can get US Mail.

I have tried a few different brands. The price of instant ocean (regular or crystals) on the Internet is hard to beat. Its what im currently using. I used oceanic for years. Oceanic dissolves fast, clear, & you get a big bucket. I use brightwell products but their salt was expensive by comparison when it came out. The price has come down & I tried a few buckets. I didnt care for how long it takes to dissolve or the lack of 200 gallon size. People have had great sucess with all the salts listed.

Cheapest I have found is the Kent Reef Salt, dissolves fast and great numbers. It is the only salt I will ever use.

Since I voted on this a few years ago I have switched to Red Sea Pro. It turns out that when you can get it for 55$ a bucket its hard to pass up. Also I started a new tank so can't really compare a whole lot exepct my magnesium seems to be more stable then when I used Aquavitro in my old tank.
