this is the only salt I will use, it dissolves and turns clear in about 15 mins making water changes painless. and I can trust the trace elements Cal Mag Alk will be inline.

I havent ever used any other salt mix. Why should I? It mixes easily and my numbers stay consistent week after week. A good friend recommended it to me when I started and I would recommend it as well
Great salt By Albert on 6/6/2014

The salt works really well. The values are as advertised and the salt mixes quickly. However, keep the saltwater agitated, in my experience, precipitates form if you allow the salt to sit too long undisturbed. I would definitely recommend this salt to anyone who is looking for a quality salt for their reef tank!

I changed from Instant Ocean, it left scum or a film in my bucket. This so far is quick and easy, no film.

IM SEEING ALL THESE NEGATIVE POSTS ABOUT CLOUDY WATER!! WELL FIRST OFF THIS MIX CAN NOT MIX LONGER THAN 4 HOURS PEOPLE. IF IT DOES THE CALCIUM LEVELS DROP DRAMATICALLY AND I MEAN BIG TIME. HEAT YOUR WATER, ME I GO TO 76 DEGREES THEN I ADD MY SALT AND I MIX FOR 3 HOURS. TURN OFF ALL PUMPS LET SIT FOR ANOTHER HOUR AND THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO CLOUDINESS. NONE. IF YOU DON'T FOLLOW DIRECTIONS THEN YOU SHOULDN'T KEEP A REEF TANK IN THE FIRST PLACE IMO.
Great Salt Mix By Maxwell on 5/19/2014

I switched to this product from Instant Ocean and don't regret it at all. Only negative I see is that the water is kind of cloudy in my bucket. I mix the water for 2 hours and let it sit for 24 hours until the water change. However, the water in my tank is crystal clear so I guess it clears up. I also have had problems with Instant Ocean clumping up, has not happened since the switch.
Excellent Product By David on 5/9/2014

Read the directions!! I have see many people complain about how this product clouds up. Here is my 2.5 cents.
1. This is probably the most important step....
Roll the bucket around for 5-10 minutes to redistribute the different size crystals that have settled during storage and shipping.
2. Raise your ro/di water to 68 deg.
3. Add the required amount of salt and let it circulate to mix for 1-2 hours.
4. STOP MIXING, raise the temp to 77
5. Do your water change

Have been doing using this salt mix for my last 6 or 7 water changes. The salt is very consistent and my coral growth and colors have been better since switching to this product. The only negative I have found is upon mixing the salt, the mix can be a bit cloudy if mixed too long. After doing the water change at night, the next morning my tank is perfectly clear again.

Awesome salt! Fragile container : ( By Bruce on 3/8/2014
Bruce would recommend this product to a friend
This stuff mixes up easy and my numbers are always good! My only complaint is the buckets are extremely weak and I've yet to receive one undamaged from shipping (and they are packaged in a heavy duty cardboard box). Thankfully none of the inner bags have tore open.
Some other brands of salt I've received in perfect condition with nothing more than a shipping label on the bucket.
best salt so far By peter on 3/3/2014

i've tried a few different salts and this one seems to raise the levels up without you having to do it afterwards. seems all the other salts are way low on the mag, alk, and cal.
First Time mixing my own salt By Adam on 2/21/2014

I used to buy the premixed water from the big brick and mortar store for my nano. I don't know why I didn't switch to mixing my own years ago. It's so easy and cost soooooo much less.
