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
Great salt By Albert on 6/6/2014

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
