Great salt, can be cloudy with insufficient mixing By MJ's Custom Aquarium Water on 9/21/2012

It took me quite awhile to master the mixing process with this salt. Even when poorly mixed and very cloudy my saltwater tank loved it. After switching from the LFS water to my own RODI and this salt, I completely eliminated my nuissance bubble and hair algae within a couple months. It was miraculous. I would give this 10 stars as a product if it wasn't so hard to get mixed thoroughly in small batches. Now I have a 55 gallon mixing station and it mixes like a dream.

Just got my 175 Red Sea Coral Pro Salt 175 Gallon. Bad thing about is that doesn't come with the measure cup.

I ordered the big bucket. It has some serious heft to it--the UPS man was audibly angry about having to carry it around. Anyway, this stuff dissolves faster than any salt I've ever used, and its stats on mixing it up are exactly what it says on the package (at least, within the error range of my test kits).

This stuff mixes great, clear water in just minutes. It also mixes up very close to what the label says at 1.026.

Mixes clear and quick. Levels are better than the mass produced salts.
Best Salt So Far By Rob on 8/18/2012

I have tried about 5 different salts and this is the best so far. I cannot think about anything bad to say about it. It mixes very fast and clean, and helps me keep parameters more stable. I have noticed I have not had to dose as much in my mixed reef compared to other salts.

I bought this salt at my LFS. When I did a 15% water change, the next day both my Powder Blue Tang and my Yellow Tang were dead. I freaked out. I had them for months and they are not cheap fish. So I got them out and did another water change. While I was checking the water chemistry I noticed the ammonia was high. So I did another water change, same results. So I checked my freash water it came up 0 ppm, then when I put the Red Sea Pro Salt in the good water and checked it it came up 1.0ppm the tube was green. I checked it over and over again with the same results. I then took pictures and emailed them to my LFS. They gave me my money back and wanted 2 cups of the salt. They got the same results I did. I don't know if I got a bad batch or what, but when I contacted Red Sea, they never even emailed my back. So now every time I do a water change I check the new water before I put it in my tank!
Best salt I've ever used By David on 8/11/2012

Ive been using a quality salt I buy at a local aquarium shop or by mail order in my 210 gallon reef tank but since I've started using Red Sea Coral Pro my tank looks 100 percent better. Great polyp extension and the alkalinity and Ph are just where I like to keep it. I'll be using it in my tank from now on
Thanks again BRS!!!

I don't have to supplement and it mixes great.
Love This Salt. Fish & Corals Love It Too. By LeeBo on 7/21/2012

I recently switched from IORC to RSCPS and what a difference. I can tell just from mixing the quality difference. The cheaper IORC leaves a floating residue on top of the water in the mixing tank while the RSCPS leaves no residue. Fish and corals have seemed to respond better to this salt too.

I find it interesting to read some of the varying observations in these reviews.
Using a Hanna colorimeter I find that with a fresh mix of 1.025, ALK is at about 15--which is higher than the advertised level. I measured the Ph to be about 8.2.
Beyond that, what I observe over time is the need to dose ALK and Mg, which leads me to believe the Ca, Mg and ALK numbers are actually, in practice, a bit lower than advertised as others have observed.
Beyond that, end results are what matter to me. And I have had tremendous results with this mix over the others I have tried, and for now will use nothing else.
