this salt is easily mixed. I just circulate my water with a pump. no paddle. doesn't clump up in storage. I have some fish that are very finicky and they seem to be fine going on six months now.
half cup salt per gallon of water. very easy to remember.
Salt works well. By Franklin on 12/6/13
Franklin would recommend this product to a friend
I like using this salt. It adds some calcium for the corals. If you are dosing kalk then you probably can just get the regular salt. It is really fine and dissolves really fast
it has the big three By rockey 25 on 11/29/13

Calcium, alkalinity, and ph are very stable. This lacks magnesium. Always have to supplement magnesium. I dont like the clay fillers they put in this stuff makes the water look brown. There are better salts out there. But reef crytals brought my tank back from where it was using kent reef salt.
Dissolves fast By HaAl on 8/23/13

Has a little more calcium than the regular instant ocean mix and dissolves much easier. Very happy with this product for the price. That said I would definitely get something like Tropic Marin if you have the money.

I've used both the IO standard mix and reef crystals, and my fish and corals are doing great. Both mix very well. My tank is only a few months old, but so far so good.

I've been using this salt mix for years and can't really say anything bad about it. It mixes as well as any good salt mix and I like the high levels of calcium and magnesium that this mix has, keeps my two part dosing to a minimum. As far as BRS goes, i can't find this salt cheaper anywhere else. If all you need is salt grab three and and get the free shipping, can't beat free shipping. Thanks BRS you got a customer for life.

Water Changes made easy By Eazy Feezy on 12/19/12

Reef Crystals is a good synthetic salt. If your doing massive water changes to combat a problem with nitrate or phosphate issues it works great, but be aware that the bacterium do better with a natural sea salt. They can thrive just fine if the parameters are right but it's a whole lot easier with a natural product. I like to do at least 2 small water changes a month with 1 of natural sea salt and 1 of synthetic sea salt. This helps keep the levels stable though not necessary, my Angels do seem to appreciate it.

Great for corals By turtleghandi on 10/7/12
turtleghandi would recommend this product to a friend
I was using the regular Instant Ocean salt and even some Top Fin salt with my 135 gallon reef tank and it did OK, but my corals really opened up when I switched over to Reef Crystals. My mushrooms opened up and their colors really popped. My zoanthids are looking better and my Kenya tree is taking over the rock it is on. Having seen how well my corals are looking with Reef Crystals, I wouldn't use anything else for my corals.

A little extra money over the plain Instant Ocean but well worth it.
Works Great By jonathan on 8/9/12

I have never had a problem with this salt and I have used it for years. Just be sure to mix slowly because if you dump it in all at once then you might get cloudy water.

Was recommended to me by a friend when I started this hobby 2 years later still using it. Great salt.
one of the best salt mix out there By reginald on 7/26/12
reginald would recommend this product to a friend
this comes with a high Alk (around 14dkh) my sps always seem to grow faster after a water change made with this salt. The calcium on it is about 390-400. FLAWLESS.

My favorite sea salt! By Sarah on 6/28/12

I've been using this in my reef for years. Although, alkalinity is a bit low, magnesium and calcium are perfect. I add extra alkalinity to the mixed water change water to suit my aquarium needs. Highly recommended!

Caviar for coral growth! By Jackie on 6/11/12

LOL, seriously, Reef Crystals is the best out there. Alk is on target with every change and this has been a problem for me when I've tried other salts. My fish and corals do exceptionally well.
a good cheap salt By Earl on 5/30/12
Earl wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
When I first switched from regular IO to RC I was very happy. I dont know if I just had a bad batch but levels were a bit off. Ca 360, DKH 6, Mg 1400. This is the first batch that was "off" out of the past 2 years.

This salt has never raised my phosphates or nitrates. Corals and fish are happy and I've had no problems growing coralline algae.
