great stuff By Joe on 11/21/2014

I ordered this and it arrived supper fast! One thing that caught my eye was that the bucket it came in cracked and cut into the bag of the salt as well. Leaving salt everywhere in the bucket and in shipping box. I live in minnesota myself hence the fast shipping but i wouldnt think that the bucket would break that easily. Is there something we can do here? Other then that this product is great! I would reccomend this to every user out there.
Doing it wrong for so long! By Adam on 11/18/2014

I have been using the wrong salt mix for years and didn't even know it. I always thought i was getting a good product at a great price but it turns out that it was just cheap crap!!! I obtained a small bucket (55gal) in a kit i bought from BRS and figured i'd give it a try. I was amazed at first on how fast and clear it dissolved in my mixing bucket which was the first indicator it was far superior then what i have been using. After a few water changes using Red Sea, there was a noticeable difference with the corals as well. Every thing just seemed happier with better colors and polyp extension I haven't seen using the other cheaper brand. Will never use the cheap stuff ever again!!!

What can I say, this is a great product. I set it up for my 80gal tank, mixed it up for a while and pumped it in. Everything came out perfect, no cloudiness. Love it and recommend it!

The weight to water volume guidelines are spot-on with no precipitates. Mixes quickly and easily and offers just the right water parameters.

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

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.

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.
The only salt I will ever use for my reef. By Burnie on 2/20/2014
Burnie would recommend this product to a friend
I have tried other salt varieties, but Red Sea Coral Pro Salt is 2nd to none in my opinion, I've never had issues with clumping that I had with previous brands. The PH remains stable and all of it dissolves which was an issue in the past as well.The only drawback is its expensive to ship, but the way around that if you can afford to buy 3 BRS ships free at $175.00

I had a fellow reefer refer me to this type of salt after I was using Instant Ocean Salt and was unable to maintain my calc and alk levels. After switching to Red Sea Coral Pro, I have not had to dose two part as much as I usually used to do. I would recommend this product to all reefers.

I heard many good things about this salt. I got it and did a few water changes. My coral had mixed reactions, some went dormant others thrived. Easy to mix and use. I use 1/2 cup per gallon of water and i get proper salinity levels.
Don't even look at others! By Steve on 1/20/2014
Steve would recommend this product to a friend
I have been reefing for about 7 years and do not use any other salt! It keeps the parameters perfect, I stopped dosing everything (even B-ionic) once I started using this salt so I won't be looking back. I do 10% water changes every other week and don't have to worry about anything else. Note that I do not keep SPS corals though.
Coral Pro Salt By Nate on 1/17/2014
Nate would recommend this product to a friend
I have used this salt since the start of my system. I have read that once you find a salt that your tank responds well to stay with it. This salt does just that. I instantly see results from all my corals as soon as I do a water change. With in a few days you can see new growth. so far all the levels are in check. Overall, this is a really good salt. If you are on the fence about this, go ahead and give it a try. It mixes up in a few hours. it says 1.6 pounds per 5 gals. i use a digital scale and convert it to OZ. Which for 5 gal it is 25.6 oz.. Every time I do a 5 gal water change and use that ratio it is spot on at 1.025 S.G. hope this helps.
So far so good. By Brian on 12/13/2013

Mixed clear with Alk 11 and PH 8.3 after about 3 hours. Has a fine consistency kind of like BRS soda ash.
Haven't tested other params but trust their stats.
Like others have said they need to do something about the buckets. It's in a plastic bag inside the bucket but still leaking salt out everywhere upon arrival. Cracked bottom.
