Favorite Salt By ange062 on 1/19/2012
ange062 would recommend this product to a friend
I've used a few different salts, but found a keeper in this one. The trace element levels are all great when mixed to 1.025, I especially noticed a significant decrease in the need for Mg dosing. Alk is a tad low for some people, 7.5-8 is what I have seen, but this is ideal for a ULNS system. Another bonus is that this salt mixes very quick compared to others I have used.

i like how fast this salt dissolves crystal clear and how the parameters are exactly where they should be every change and the free shipping with the larger orders is great to save tons of money on shipping with this item!

I bought this salt for the first time and was pleased to see the test results they claim were close to right according to my red sea test kits. Corals seem to be doing better and the coraline algae is growing rapidly.
dont buy this salt By scampy on 12/23/2011

A very inconsistant salt mix. 3 different buckets had cal below 350 mag 1050 kh 10. It cost alot to dose this salt back to where it should be.

i been using this salt over 2 years and have great result. Very affordable price so I can do more water change and never add any trace/addictive.

this is by far the best salt for a reef tank
Love It By MTWiley on 12/6/2011
MTWiley would recommend this product to a friend
LFS recommended it and I've used it since I setup my first reef tank. Works great always mixes well, leaves a bit of residue in my mixing buckets, but easy to cleanup and well worth it for a relatively cheap and high quality salt.

I switched over from reef crystals to coral pro, and I love it. It dissolves fast, and the price is good.
Outstanding!!!! By FuDz CWerner on 11/25/2011

I switched to this salt from Instant Ocean. I do 30 gal per week water changes between all of my tanks and I am very impressed with how easily this mixes. My Ca, Mg, and Alk are near perfect after each water change. There is a very small amount of insoluble material settled on the bottom of my mix container, I would say that it is less than 1/8 cup. Which is pretty good considering 15+ cups for 30 gallons. I highly recommend this product.
good salt By denis on 11/24/2011

I hahve been using coral pro salt for over a year now and it has been better than reef crystals (what i used to use). reef crystal wasnt bad either but since i have a bigger load of corals over the years the demand for alkalinity calcium and magnesium have been higher and after fully dissolving all the levels are quite high which is great! if you have a mixed reef or sps tank this mix is perfect!

Probably my favorite salt. I've used it for around 6 months now and am getting consistent test results with each batch.

High Quality Mix By Daniel on 11/12/2011

I've used this product since day one for my 110 gallon tank and couldn't be happier. Salt dissolves fast and water parameters (Mg, dKH, Ca) are better than other salt mixes I've used with other tanks.

It seems to be much better than the reef crystals brand
Excellent salt no dosing needed By Charles on 10/11/2011
Charles would recommend this product to a friend
This is a good salt mix although its a little pricey. You make up for it by not having to dose other trace elements. Mixes fast and clear.
Just switched over By AC2020x on 10/8/2011

I switched over just recently from oceanic to this salt. Overall I haven't noticed too much of a difference however I believe that both are great salts and this one has some better trace elements that a lot of corals crave.
However, just as it says in the video review.... just make sure you get one of the great salts out there (you probably can't say 1 is better than another), just as long as you don't get something like petco salt.
This is one of those great salts!

Well I'am a kinda new to reefing, and after spending hours looking up salt on many websites, I chose this one. First of all is that this salt has all the nutrients that are needed in the right quantities. I also never had any brown film on the bottom of my salt mixing bucket. Also this salt mixes really fast like within an hour after mixing the water will be crystal clear.
Similar results as others By tonythefish on 9/22/2011

I have used this salt before and never had a problem. With this new bucket I am getting brown sediment like crazy. I use RO/DI and make sure everything I use to mix is clean. I will never buy this salt again.
Calcium floating after 24 By Bryan on 8/11/2011

I use RED SEA products, I have a red sea max 250 red sea test kits and used the Red sea salt mix. I switched to Coral Pro and every batch of salt I make has white film after 24 hours. I saw in a review above me red sea told them to not mix for that long. it is usually crystal clear after 20 minutes so ill give that a try.

great for LPS only tanks By Rocky on 7/17/2011
Rocky would recommend this product to a friend
I have been using this salt for a while and really like it because the calcium and alkalinity levels are so high. I only have anemones and a few LPS and this salt allows me to manage my levels with weekly water changes alone. No calcium reactor or other additives. I have noticed like some of the other users that if you mix it too long the calcium starts to precipitate out because the cal/alk levels are intentionally really high so I generally mix it and use it a hour later to avoid that. I’d use the normal blue bucket red sea if I were concerned about that or managed calcium levels with a reactor or something else.
Lots of sediment By antole on 7/15/2011
antole wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
Lots of stuff floating around lots of calcium precipitation and as other reviewer stated not clear after 24 hours of mixing. I contacted red sea about the issues and they told me that I should not mix for so long and to only mix a maximum of 3 hours, but its not even close to clear after that, no way imo putting it in my tank. I emailed them again and got no response. The parameters are way off in the mix, (not whats stated on the bucket)i even dry mixed 2 buckets together and have bad results each time.
Best salt if you have coral By Lynn on 6/29/2011
Lynn would recommend this product to a friend
I started off using Instant Ocean salt as this is what almost everyone uses in this hobby. One guy from my LFS recommended using this salt as it as close to natural salt water that you can get. Boy was he right! I no longer have low magnesium issues and my calcium and alkalinity are always the same value! All I need to do is my regular water changes to keep my water chemistry spot on! Also I really started seeing some great growth in my coral frags as well as coralline algae which did not grow well when I was using Instant Ocean. It is the same price as Reef Crystals as well so why not give it a try? I'm glad I did!!
I like it By Ally on 6/27/2011

Most of the other salts I have used required me to mix it the night before. This stuff dissolves almost instantly. I feel comfortable using it an hour or two after mixing.
Best I have used By Jay D on 6/25/2011
Jay D would recommend this product to a friend
I have been doing this for close to 20 years now and I am a long time Instant ocean user. I have tried most salts out there but I always ended going back to IO because it is the cheapest and easiest to find. Some of our club members convinced me to try this salt mix. I was pretty skeptical I would notice any difference over IO but I was wrong. After about 3-4 water changes I am seeing incredible polyp extension and some of the smaller frags I recently added seem to have begun encrusting the plug base much faster. It also dissolves much faster than IO. I mix in a 55 gallon food grade drum with a koralia 4 and it looks ready to use inside an hour.
No Sure Just Yet By Neil on 6/24/2011
Neil wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I ordered this salt mix to try it out and see what it was like. I mixed it with RO/DI water in a 42gal Brute food grade trash can. I have a mag drive 7 for the water flow and to help mix the salt for the water change. I mixed the salt and the water and let the mag drive do the mixing for 24 hours. The next day the water was not clear and there was a brown sediment floating around in the trash can. I cleaned the trash can before making new RO/DI water and mixing so not sure what it is. I did not want to put this in my reef tank so I got rid of 35gal that I made and went back to my old salt. I will mix again to see if it does the same thing and hope for better water mix.
