It's tough out there for IO salt, prices rised and I have heard they filed for bankruptcy, just remember to check shipping as some places still sell it for $30 a bucket but a ton for shipping

This is what i heard so i'm not 100%, and even though they might be broke doesn't mean they stopped making salt as this is aquarium systems/marineland were talking ;)

Bankrupt? Sheesh, Foster & Smith alone probably keeps them in business with all the Reef Crystals salt they go through at the farm!! :lol:

Anyways, F&S are about the cheapest, at least with the shipping charges,, they still charge the flat rate for shipping,

+1 on the F&S, the shipping is what makes it an even better deal.

Depends on how much you want. I've been getting the 50 gallon bags at petco for $19 and with a discount card that takes 5 minutes to apply for, they throw in a free 10 gallon bag. I've got an odd habit of always buying salt whenever I need anything for the tank, so I've got tons of it lying around.

The best deal I got was at my lfs: 13 bucks for a 50 gallon bag

$.70/gallon at LFS. Premixed and all.

I have been using Tropic Marine Pro, but will be switching to DD-H20cean next time.

Too many positive remarks for this salt to not give it a try.
