I believe Renroc used red sea, but then again she might source marine salt water from local beaches, which ive heard of many aussie crabbers do with careful screening and UV filtration.

I haven't acutally used Red Sea Salt. BUT yes I did use ocean sourced water (specially for my zoea and babies) but keeping up that supply was very difficult as it is a 30min trip each way to the beach for me. That's when I got the Ocean Pure and it worked really well. I've just run out and have new stuff (from the same shop) which is Tropic Marin. It comes in a box but with a sealed plastic bag inside. The aquarium shop said they were sad to no longer be able to source Ocean Pure as it was a good salt. BUT said this new one is just as good and a little cheaper. Can't remember how much it was though.
Crazy crab lady with 2 babies raised in captivity. One female on male and one unknown. Also 2 adults living in a 4ft tank. Hope to get some girls soon to have another breeding attempt.

Haha, partially correct then! :)

Honestly much of the marine salt mixes work well for the crabs, its just a matter of availability and pricing.
