    Thanks for posting this. I have always wondered if there were any differences in the mixes. I guess based on this analysis, they are not all created equally. Kent, which I have never used, appears to have a better profile. What is not addressed is how closely they replicate the ocean. Then again, not all oceans are created equally. Can't anything in this hobby be black and white.
    If my wife asks, it was only $20.

    Thanks again. There are two things I have learned from the two readings. I should start premixing my water changes a little more in advance than I do now. I just mix it 5 gallon jugs, shake the heck out of it, let it sit for a few hours, shake the heck out of it again, and then pour it in. I may start heating and airating it. Secondly, I might still consider using the Kent product. I use Instant Ocean because its readily available and is what I have always used.

    the most attractive thing from the kent salt is the high calcium, it looks like u don;t even need to add any calcium just regular waterchanges.

    anyone here use kent?
