A customer of mine owns a fish market (for food) and he sells salt from the mediteranian sea. It`s iodized as it`s intended to be consumed. Would this be useful for brackish tanks?

No, it's table salt, check this thread going on here, it lists what marine salt has in it and what iodized or table salt has in it.

But this is marine salt. It`s not mined from the ground in Ontario. I just don`t know what has been changed to make it fit for human consumption.
Contents:Iodized marine salt. No anti-caking agent or other junk. If it`s marine salt, it must contain all that other stuff too right?

yes brad, if it's "marine salt" it contains all those ingredients. they've added iodine as they do for almost ALL table salt for human consumption, due to the antiquated theory that we need iodine to prevent 'goiter'. perfectly safe for use with fish since there's not enough iodine to cause any harm to our scaled friends.
