I used to be in touch with the owner, Mike, and he sent me a batch of the salt. I used it as the first salt ever on my first ever reef tank and everything was fine. When I finished that salt, I went with Instant Ocean and saw no difference. So in my experience, I had no problem with AquaCraft's salt but saw no difference between it and Instant Ocean.
Hope that helped,

I don't have the link, but there are several articles that say that all marine salt is the same.

You will probably not see any sort of difference in your tank between batches of salt.

there have been many different studies done on salts. aquacraft has one on their site, but they paid for it so some have said it shouldn't be paid much attention. There was one that was done recently, which might also be mentioned on the site as it also gave their salts high marks.

I use Marine Environment. I like the stuff but hate the little bottle. annoying as hell for small tanks. If you have questions about the salts, (I think that's mike's email) will answer them. he's usually pretty good with the questions and I know he pops into the chat at from time to time.
