It's been a long time since I had a saltwater tank so I have a few
I went to my LFS to get some of the supplies I need to get up and running , when I came across this issue .
I always used instant ocean salt the one in purple tub with no issues.
the guy at the fish store said even if I don't have a reef tank I should use the instant ocean reef salt the one in orange tub , he said it cycles faster and also keeps fish more healthy, also contains better nutrients for the live rock . how true is this and would I be better off with the reef salt.
it's only a matter of 2 or 3 dollars between the two in cost
just want my new tank to run smooth like the one I had many years ago ,
thank you for all your input
tank specs are as follows :
37 gal bow front
JBJ reaction 4 stage canister filter with built in uv sterilizer
external penguin bio filter with skimmer attachment
ETH 200 watt inline heater
2 power heads
