Excellent By Cory on 10/18/2013

There are a ton of reviews on this salt. And reefers have a ton of opinions of which salt is the best. So it comes down to what is best for you. This salt works for me because it mixes well, it is consistent from batch to batch, and when I test the mixed water I get the ratio of elements I am looking for. I have had better results with Red Sea than Instant Ocean. But I have friends who say the opposite. If your not using Red Sea, give it a shot and see how it works for you. For me the result has been healthier corals. Just don't use the cool looking leftover buckets for water storage....they leak :-)
Awesome product! By J on 10/15/2013

RSCP salt is awesome! Switched to this after hearing that it was better for coral growth. Got some browned out SPS from someone and after a couple of weeks in the RSCP, all the sticks have color now and great polyp extension. Also made my zoas and palys spread like crazy! Will not use another salt after this!
Great Salt Bad Packaging By Jake Wilkerson on 10/14/2013

I've ordered both sizes now. Each time the bucket comes with a huge crack down the side. I don't know about everyone else but I like to get my money's worth and re purpose those buckets.
Disappointing but I still love the salt.
cloudy water, brown filter pads By mikec on 10/14/2013

At first I couldn't figure out where the brown was coming from on my filter pads and filter sock. I thought maybe it was GFO. Then I changed back to reef crystals and it cleared up, also my water is now crystal clear. Something is wrong with this salt, I am very disappointed.
Great growth on my zoos! By Scott on 10/8/2013
Scott would recommend this product to a friend
Mixes a little cloudy, directions say not to mix over 4 hours. I have 3 high end zoos I purchased that were sticking around with 3 polyps and now they have 9-10 polyps each. Acans are growing new heads as well. This only after 3 weekly 20% water changes. Prior to this I used Reef Crystals, it mixed super clear over night but I did not see this kind of growth.
I know this is a top notch salt I did not use it yet I will soon (175 Gal Bucket) By Kenneth on 9/4/2013

The order arrived quickly as I have come to expect from BRS the only issue was the bucket was shipped in a box with the shipping label on the side of the bottom of the box, so the shipper handled it with the lid down when I opened the lid was destroyed and completely off the bucket salt had leaked out of the bag I don't know how much salt was lost? also the metal handle was badly bent, I am glad I had a empty spare salt bucket, I save the empty buckets for water changes etc, I called BRS they offered me a couple options to make it right (Thanks BRS) I must just be having bad luck lately, Past salt purchases I have made online from a other site ships the salt with the label on the bucket making it easier for the shipper to handle the heavy product, the next time I will ask for the bucket not to be put in a box since this is the first time out of 4 5gal purchases one was damaged in transit! I am not going to stop buying from BRS just sharing my experience.
Had Red Sean and ran out By Sean on 8/28/2013

I bought Red Sea awhile ago and ran out, was using up some salt that was given to me, and now am out of that thankfully, looking forward to using Red Sea again since my corrals like it and it supplies more of what I need for my tank

This is the best salt out there in my opinion, I have tried everything and nothing touches this stuff.
Years of healthy tanks By Kris on 8/6/2013

I have been using this salt for a long time. I tried a few others along the way, but this is the most consistent mix out there. My tank is very healthy due to regular water changes and coral pro salt.
?????not for me??????? By Pietro on 7/11/2013
Pietro wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I really wanted this salt to work for me. I read the reviews, and decided it was what I wanted to start my 180g. reef with. The first time I mixed the salt with RODI water it seemed a little cloudier than I was accustomed. I let it rest and the next day added to tank. After four months of use, I did a large water with Instant Ocean and I noticed the clarity of the water from end to end of the tank was crystal clear and coral seem to be responding to weekly water changes. This product just not for me. I could see no benefits except a cool bucket.
Best salt mix out there By Luis on 7/4/2013

Mixes consistently and clears up quickly. I also noticed my corals seem to have better growth after switching over from my old brand of salt mix. Definitely would recommend this mix!

salt mixes clear and fast. after a year of using it I've seen better polyp extention and color on my sps. always mixes to the correct peramiters and helps keep my tank in check.
