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.

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.

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.
