I used H2O and switched to ESV. LFS stop selling it H2O. Instead carried ESV and made switch. Mixing the 4 parts is easy. Your water will be clearer not cloudy. Not much of a difference in coral doing any better. ESV was $75 for 200gal. at LFS. A few dollars more wasn't a big deal. But didn't like to have 2 gals of solution and than around 40lbs of Sodium. And around 15 lbs Magesium Just a guess on weights. Just had to store it away from the kids. Its a good salt but got not sure if I will buy it again.

ESV, period. xD
Keep the "G" in the front. Replace the "P" with an "O", then, subtract the "S" with the "D." Your navigation system is now all set.
