Stable Parameters By Vinny on 12/16/2014

I'm new to saltwater(about 6 months in) and started with Instant Ocean salt mix. I constantly had to monitor/test my parameters and dose multiple elements. On top of that, I was getting terrible algae outbreaks.
My LFS recommended Red Sea Coral Pro Salt or Salinity Salt. I chose the Red Sea Coral Pro mix. I have a small tank(30 gal + 10 gal sump-about 6 gal of water in it) and perform 5 gal WCs every week(sometimes I will skimp and go 2 weeks before a WC). It took about 2 WCs before I REALLY noticed the results. All my parameters stabilized, the CYANO algae died/disappeared, GHA reduced. The only thing I have to dose now is magnesium and thats only if I go 2 weeks between WCs. I'm super satisfied with this salt mix. Unless something better comes along, this will be my lifetime salt mix.
Good Salt...Follow Mix Instructions By Daniel on 12/12/2014

I've had a few people vouch for this salt, so I made a purchase. The first thing I noticed was that the bucket was broken. Literally split in half. The only saving grace was that the salt was bagged in the bucket. I still would have preferred to keep the bucket that came with it, rather than use one of my own, but this is probably more of a shipping issue. I've been using it for a little over a month now, and everything in the tank is happy. One thing I've noticed, and have read, is that you need to follow the instructions closely. Mix for 1 hour or so, bring it up to temp and do your water change. Don't mix too long.

This is so far the best and my favorite salt. Awesome coral growth, really no need supplements.
Its my first time ordering here & based on other reviews I was afraid I might get a broken bucket (cos bad shipment handling) but was lucky to get it in perfect condition :)

Great stuff I was using another salt brand That took forever to mix and my tank was always having issues this stuff now I just finished my first 55 gallon buck and I have noticed corals splitting like crazy regrowth and lots of growth in exisit inc corals. I just bought two more buckets and will continue to use this product in all my future tanks. Well worth the money and I don't normally write reviews. That's how awesome this stuff is.

The only down fall was that when I opened my box the bucekt was broken on the bottom cutting into the bag of salt leaving salt everywhere in the box and the bucket (not happy). Being that I live in minnesota too the shipping was supurb overall! Other then that, this salt mix is GREAT! I'll recommend this to a friend but not the plastic bucket!

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.
