Preferred Pets in Janesville has the buckets of Oceanic Salt for $46.99, a dollar more than IO. Just a heads up. :)

Is Oceanic better than IO?

That is in the eye of the beholder. :)

I think there Cal. is high, Alk. is low, if I remember correctly. MiddletonMark tried it out, he can probably tell you more about it, otherwise, RC has a bunch of threads on it, shouldn't be hard to find.

If that's the 200 gallon bucket, Petsmart has it for $39.99. You have to print their ad off on the internet and take it in but I'd do that for $7!

I don't use Oceanic, but I usually see it and it's around $60-$70 for the bucket. Right on with the petsmart thing, even better yet. :)

Nice - yeah, I used Oceanic for a while.

Seems like varied experiences on it - a couple phenomenal tanks are running it without issue. I ran into low Alk issues and felt that given that, my prior IO use had more stable chemistry for my tank/methods.

High Ca + Mag, low Alk, maybe other things. Search RC, think for yourself.

But while I have, I wouldn't recommend changing salts regularly. IMO, what's not broke does not need fixing.

Good prices, Ereefic.
