good consistent mix By Josh on 7/13/2014Josh would recommend this product to a friendBeen using it for over 4 yes with no complaints
My go-to salt By Albert on 6/29/2014Albert would recommend this product to a friendWhat can I say? This salt dissolves fast, and is incredibly affordable. The parameters of the mixed saltwater is also in line with what I need to keep my corals healthy. Sure there are a lot of other great salt out there, but for the price I would highly recommend reef crystals!
Possibly Bad Batch IO By Jim on 6/27/2014Jim wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI've used IO for many years and have not felt the need for the overpriced boutique salts. I bought two 200g boxes for a new tank build. This batch seems to be severely lacking in CA and it does not come close to its claim of "When dissolved in pure water to a specific gravity of 1.026, Instant Ocean® should provide a solution that has 400 mg/L calcium ion and 1320 mg/L magnesium ion." I tested Ca and KH, at 1.024, and while KH is 10.5 Ca is so low its off the Red Sea chart at ~150. The lowest they go is .58/290. That test was verified and after adding 4 tsp of Turbo Calcium levels measured 400 the next day. I should also add that the levels are probably lower being I had a calcium reactor online several days prior to testing.
GREAT SALT By Ezy33 on 4/18/2014Ezy33 would recommend this product to a friendI find the box easier to handle and the 50 gallon bags reduces clumping. Having it delivered to my front door makes my life easier!
Industry Standard By Donald on 4/1/2014Donald would recommend this product to a friendReef Crystals are pretty much the standard in reef keeping. It dissolves fast and is well formulated. Highly recommended to anyone!
Highly Recommend By Brad Shook on 4/1/2014Brad Shook would recommend this product to a friendI have been using Reef Crystals for 6+ Years for all my Reef Tanks. I have tried several other salts but I always come back to Reef Crystals. It is by far the best Salt on the Market.

Best Salt Mix By Adam on 4/1/2014Adam would recommend this product to a friendThis is the salt mix you want to go with. It dissolves fast and has my corals looking a lot better. It also does not make my skimmer go crazy like the other salts that ive used. I have tried a couple other brands and none compare to reef crystals. I will only buy this from now on.
Great product By Ryan on 4/1/2014Ryan would recommend this product to a friendLove the product but really needs screw on type lid, snap lid is hard on the fingers after while, but its still my favor of the sea salts for my reef
