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.

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.

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 7/17/11
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 7/16/11

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 6/29/11
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!!
