Received my order.. box looked fine but when I opened the box and looked in.. well the bucket the salt was in was completely smashed. Lucky the bag the salt was in only had a few holes and I had a spare empty bucket I could slowly and carefully pour the salt into.. I do not know what happened but I was happy I could save my salt...... I think next time I will just pay the extra and go to my LFS and get my salt....

I have tried several different brands all needing several hours or overnight to clear up before adding to the tank. Red Sea Coral Pro Salt Mix mixes clear. I brought the mix to temp in an hour and the mix was very clear. Great salt.

I have used many brands in the the 14 or so years of keeping saltwater tanks. I have been using RS Coral Pro for just under a year now and I am happy with the results. Previously, I was using Aquavitro Salinity, with good results as well, but the RSCP is less expensive. First off, I want to address the storage time frame. I fill a 32 gallon Brute trash can with 25 gallons of fresh RO/DI water. Second, I put a heater and a powerhead in the mixing can. I slowly add the desired amount, I keep my tanks at 1.026 or 35 ppt, and I do this approximately 24 hours before my water changes. I have never had precipitation in my mixing vat or my tank. My tank is always crystal clear.
I have great growth with , soft, LPS, SPS, and clams. I do a 25gal water change on my 90gal tank every week. I only dose 2 part once a week, usually mid week between water changes. That is what I do. I like this salt and I am sure you will too.

I love this salt. I was using IO salt mix before and had to test my water so many times to adjust my parameters. We red sea salt pro testing is limited and i do not have to wait 24 hours to use. My corals and fish are alway happy!!! And i spend less time on maintenance. More time to enjoy my tanks.

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.

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.

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.

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.
