Looks to be a decent product suprisingly!
I know people who have used Nutri sea water and said it was great.
If you want more info on the petco water search "ocean water for aquariums by catalina".Catalina is the manufacterer of this product.
The Nutri sea cost like $17 for 4.4 gallons I think?
I have not used either myself.

So I did a half tank change and only used 11 gallons of water. And yes its a little expensive. My tank is supposed to be a 36 gallon tank, am thinking that with the sand and rock, took up a lot of room, lol. Hubby also decided to bring home a fish. A little blue chromis, very cute. Anyway, the petco water was faster but the salinity was a bit high at 1.026-1.028, mine is kept at 1.023-1.024. So had to dilute it a bit. Before I started today my water was as follows:
salinity- 1.022-1.023 was in the middle
Calcium- 440
KH- 9
phosphate- 0
nitrate- 20
Ph- 8.0

gonna check tomorrow and see

There are only a few Chromis that are peaceful, and the blue ones aren't one of them. Unless you are talking about the Blue Reef Chromis. The Green and Axil Chromis chase each other to the poin of only one being alive in the tank. In a small tank, they flat out just think they are the kings. Quite the meanies.

uh i have to disagree about the clown fish how are they mean?
ROFL. Extremely territorial fish, theyll even attack your hand when you try to clean glass. The Clarkii Clowns have even been known to draw blood, they have Teeth!

All the clowns are mean, some are just a bit tougher than others. Even the Nemo that everyone knows and loves will rip your arm off if you stick it there to long. They dont care how big a fish is when it gets near their territory, they are going to either chase it off or try to chase it off then dive back into the Anemone he came from. The Occelaris (Nemo) are calmer than most, but dont be fooled. Once they get used to everyone in the tank it gets better.

Clowns will you know they are there. I had one nipping at my flippers while scuba diving in a Aruba last tuesday. But for 4.4 gallons $17 thats steep. I can get a 25 gallon mix of instant ocean reef crystals for $14.99 before tax at my LFS. I would think you would be better off in the long run if you mix your self.
