I used IO for almost 2 years and didn't have a problem mixing, as long as the water was to temp (78-82). The reason to switch up to the more expensive salts are the trace elements. It cuts back on the amount you have to dose, and also clears up the unknowns like strontium and molybdenum.

I've got both brands here right now, guys, TM dissolves almost instantly and I have two bags of IO that both take forever to dissolve.  This is the first time I've used IO.  I got both bags of IO from the same place, and they've sat around for awhile, so maybe they are contaminated.  Either way I buy the Tropic Marin for the supposed completeness of trace minerals and such.  I am sure the IO is adequate though, and didn't mean to offend anyone, I was simply using that as an example of differences, however inaccurate it may be.  Happy reefing!

For the people who are using Brightwell salt, could you give the reasons why you like it more?

I like the brightwell as it has raised my calcium, alk, and mag levels up higher so I dont have to dose as much. It also mixes cleaner that rscp does.

I use Oceanic.  I don't have a lot of corals.  Has anyone used Brightwell?
Love it... Really fine and clears within minutes after mixing......
A Indonesian fisherman once stated if we blow up the coral reef we have no future...... But if we do not we no way to feed my family now...... How sad the circumstances are today that ruin the opportunity of the future!
