When making salt water should it always be made at hand if i have a contaner or salt water should just be made with in the few hours of mixing it???
Question by: rocky on Mar 14, 2014 3:51:00 PM
Hi Rocky,
Its easy to have it mixed and ready to go, but there isn't any chance you can mix it as you need it with most salts. The Red Sea Coral Pro in particular actually recommends that you use it within a few hours of mixing it. Letting it sit won't hurt it, but it will get a little cloudy the longer it sits.

What water do you recommend? Is DI ok to use?
Question by: Hunter on Feb 7, 2016 8:33:00 PM
Great question!
Ro/DI water is recommended whenever adding water to salt mix to start with pure water. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

I've noticed the alkalinity is elevated to 11-12 range, I havnt seen any information of keeping it at that range, mostly 8-9 range. It's 11-12 dkh still safe for sps and LPs?
Question by: Pavel Bragin jr on Nov 8, 2016 11:42:00 PM
Great question! Optimal levels for Alk in the reef aquarium is 2.5-4 meq/L or 7-11 dKH. This salt is perfect for those with a lower coral demand for Alk/Ca where water changes alone can help maintain those levels. :-)

Do you guys sell the 55lb sack of salt?
Question by: Erik Dowey on Jul 5, 2016 6:58:00 PM
Hi Erik,

As of right now we carry the 55 gallon bucket and 175 gallon bucket. We don't yet have the new 175 gallon (48.5 lb) refill bag.

What sea salt do you use or feel is the best and why. I have used reef crystal instant oceans but have been told Red Sea coral is better. Is there really enough difference to make a change. I have 225 reef tank been up running 10 years thanks for your remarks. Ron
Question by: Ron on Mar 10, 2016 2:13:00 AM
Great question!
We have had great luck with the Red Sea Coral Pro with the added elements where it has reduced the amount we need to dose for trace and calcium, alkalinity. Another great option we have used is the HW reefer. Both will have added elements to help support more diverse tank. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 10, 2016 1:43:00 PM
This PRODUC Is Safe To Used With Fish As Well....
Question by: ivan avina on Jul 20, 2016 4:38:00 PM
Hi there,
You can use Red Sea Coral Pro salt with a fish only tank if you wanted to. It does have some elevated elements which you won’t really “need” and does cost a bit more than the standard Red Sea salt.
Answer by: Charlie (Admin) on Jul 21, 2016 7:24:00 AM
In the directions for Red Sea Coral Pro Salt it says not to mix longer than 4 hours but in the Red Sea Salt mix it does not state this, why should it not be mixed more than 4 hours? what will happen if mixed longer than 4 hours? what is considered mixing then? would having a power head moving the water be considered mixing?
Question by: Jason on Jun 21, 2016 1:31:00 PM
Great question!
If it is mixed longer than 4 hours before adding to the tank there is potential for the precipitation to occur. They recommend only mixing as needed before use. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Jun 21, 2016 4:06:00 PM
I am new to marine tanks can I use this salt for cycling and then I will add fishes and on down the line I will add a couple of corals. is this one better or Reef crystals salt?
Question by: Ronn on Sep 21, 2013 10:36:00 PM
Hey Ronn,
If your just starting a new tank and you don't currently have any corals, then I would suggest using the regular Red Sea Salt. The coral pro salt has elevated levels of calcium and alkalinity that wouldn't be of use without corals in your tank.

Full Details

Unlike the natural reef environment, which has an immeasurable reservoir of all 57 elements, a reef aquarium is an artificial environment that is constantly affected by coral growth and other ongoing biological processes. Red Sea Coral Pro Salt Mix is the result of years of research. Formulated for use with RO water, the unique Sodium Chloride harvested from the Red Sea Reef contains optimally balanced ratios between calcium, alkalinity and magnesium. Coral Pro Salt Mix contains elevated levels of these elements for accelerated coral growth.


Coral Pro Salt Mix is designed to provide the biologically balanced, elevated levels of the foundation elements (Calcium, Magnesium & Carbonates) necessary for sustainable, accelerated growth and enhanced vitality of all corals. Coral Pro salt mix is ideal for reef aquariums, in particular for LPS and SPS corals and growing out coral frags. Main parameters at a salinity of 33.0 ppt are: KH - 11.8-12.2 °dKH, Ca - 430 - 450 mg/l, Mg 1280 - 1340 mg/l.

  • Excellent Salt By Jeff on 12/4/2016

    I have been using Red Sea Pro for over a year now and I can say that this product is vital to a successful reef aquarium. I find that just a 7-10% water change weekly drastically affects my coral in a positive way. This product mixes clear and fast. Although I dose 2 part to keep up w/ massive SPS colonies, the micro elements contained in this natural salt keep up w/ what is hard to test for and evaluate. Highly trust.
  • Great salt By John on 10/27/2016

    Just mixed, 75 gallons last night,, found it takes about 1 cup per gallon (guesstimate) to achieve 1.026 salinity,, mixes clear in a 5 gallon bucket in about 10 minutes with a powerhead,, I left it mixing for about 45 minutes,,, great product,, highly recommend
  • Great Salt Mix! By Bobby on 9/17/2016

    First off i'll start by giving shout out to REDSEA MACNA 2016. These guys are awesome. Extremely knowledgable and helpful. I have been using IO Reef Crystals for 2 months mostly due to the low cost with not much success. I was given a free bucket of coral pro salt at MACNA from the Red Sea guys. I have been using it for a couple weeks now and have seen a huge difference in my coral coloration. My tank parameters seem to be a bit more stable overall but only time will tell. The salt mixes really fast compared to IO. Within an hour the water is clear. IO takes the entire day to mix and still a little cloudy. Also I have noticed that the parameters reflect what the bucket has on it. Not so much for the IO although reef crystals is not bad for the price. One more thing to note is my IO seemed to have a nasty brown sludge buildup on the surface of the water. I have used IO in the past and had the same problem. Probably will not notice this in a small 5 gallon mix but if mixed in a larger container for a day or two you may notice it. Either way I highly recommend the Red Sea coral pro salt ONLY IF you can afford it. Otherwise I would go with IO.
  • Easy to mix By Dan on 9/9/2016

    I have been using this slat mix now for 7 months and my fish and corals love it. It is very easy to mix and convinent as you do not have to let it sit for 24 hours to add it to your tank. I mix mine usually for about an hour.
  • Complete Turnaround By Roxy on 7/23/2016

    This is long, but I have to share. So I cycled my tank with IO Reef Crystals... But then I kept using it for some reason... Even though my water was "safe," (no ammonia, nitrite, etc), my reef parameters were always a little off no matter what I did.... Corals were doing poorly even with dosing and my ph and salinity was always hovering lower than I wanted, but within range. I didn't expect crazy algae since I was running a Phosban reactor, but I had terrible algae and cyano I had to constantly fight.... My water was milky and I didn't know why... I was losing my brain, but my friend suggested changing salt. I decided to get a uv sterilizer instead. It kind of worked to clear it up, but still a little hazy. I said... Alright fine, I'm changing the salt. Can it get much worse in the rectangular shaped money pit? (Wait, don't answer that) ................ My tank was completely CRYSTAL clear within hours of adding this salt. My corals all perked up and came alive, plus my ph and salinity have been stable. No algae, no cyano returns. I can't believe the tank I wanted was here all along. I want to say a miracle happened, and I don't care why or how, but I just realized the importance of quality salt. Do NOT buy cheap salt, even if it is very popular.
  • Great product By Aaron on 7/13/2016

    My corals and fish both love this salt. It is very easy to mix. I have tried a few other different salts and the lvls seem to change. every time I mix new water for water changes.
  • Solid Salt BUT By SnowManSnow on 7/13/2016

    This salt is actually a good salt IMO. It mixes well, and does what it is suppose to do, BUT... for you SPS lovers out there BE AWARE this salt mixes to am alk of 12. THATS TWELVE. The bucket DOES inform you of this level, but it would be easy to purchase it without realizing it. For me no more red sea :( I need my levels closer to 8.0. Besides the high alk this is a quality salt.
  • Great salt By Dennis on 5/29/2016

    Now I watch a lot of the BRS TV videos I know what he said in the video. I also read the not so nice review here about this salt being salt on steroids. I recently ordered this salt switching from another popular brand. This salt does in fact dissolve faster and clearer. Here is how I did my switch over to this salt brand. Day one 2% water change. Day three 5% water change. Day seven 5% water change. So far everything is doing well and I think this salt is the brand I will be sticking with from here on. My parameters are doing great, corals are looking much better and fish seem to be doing well also. I plan on doing my next water change of 10% on day 14 and then doing a 10% water change from that point out. I think like when adding fish and coral to an aquarium when changing salt brands it is good to make the change in small increments to measure the impact the change may or may not have. I am really liking this salt right now. All parameters are great right from the mix.
  • Great Product - Trusted Brand By RJS6711 on 5/4/2016

    When I chose my first reef tank a couple of months ago, I went with a Red Sea Reefer. However, being a brand-loyalist, I stuck with a brand of salt that I was familiar with from years of keeping FOWLR tanks - Instant Ocean. Because I was building a reef tank, I chose reef crystals, which I had not previously had reason to try before. I was very disappointed with the result.

    Now, I don't want to unfairly blame all of my water chemistry problems on the Instant Ocean folks. After all, I am using a few other products for the first time that could have contributed to some of my issues (such as live sand and reef saver dry rock) - who knows. But I had one heck of a time trying to keep my water chemistry in the target range for pH, alkalinity and calcium. I tried to buffer it and ended up with carbonate precipitation (milky water).

    I decided to do a water change and used Red Sea Coral Pro Salt Mix and like what I'm seeing so far in terms of those same water chemistry factors.

    I highly recommend this product and have been happy with all of the Red Sea products I have used thus far. Spend a little more up front and save yourself frustration later - go with Red Sea salt and test kits. They are worth the extra few bucks. Happy reeling. Robert
  • ??? By NewFisher77 on 4/18/2016

    I cant really give an opinion on this as ive never mixed water before and had a friend mix this up for me to start my aquarium.
  • Corals By jose on 3/25/2016

    I use Instant Ocean for my 95 Gallon tank . I only have fish . I want to get corals . Can I still use instant ocean salt with a calcium reactor
  • Works well By Sam on 3/12/2016

    fish and sps/lps seem happy. Also like the small buckets :)
