Im a newbie and used it very easy to use the only problem i see and that i have with it is that i cant seem to get pH high enough with only salt.

Previously used Reef crystals. This salt dissolves more quickly. Easy to use.
Great Standard Salt By Nathan on 2/3/2015

This is the salt I prefer because it gives me less of a headache when trying to maintain proper levels using an addition system (such as dosing or reactor). Other salts with artificially elevated levels always seem to make my dosing go out of whack.

I purchase the 200 gal box, which contains 4 individually sealed 50 gal bags - open only 1 bag at a time and avoid clumping!
clumps together By perry on 7/22/2014

the only reason i don't like this mix it that it clumps together after siting for a while. other wise it is a good salt mix.

2 words, free. Shipping. !
I do have to preface it and say that I'm a newbie, so I don't know my table salt from salt coming off my face when I sweat, so I can't comment on quality of these. I do know they cycle my tank pretty well so far, lol... Again, newbie, so I don't even have any livestock yet

I have been using this salt for years with no problems. Though I don't have any experience with others to compare I feel I don't need to because Instant Ocean has always worked great for me.

Ive been using this salt for the past 5 years, it is a great salt. However if your growing sps you will need to supplement calcium alkalinity and mag in-between waterchanges

Instant Ocean salt is very easy to use and is a great price when adding to a large order qualifying for free shipping! the SG is right on when following the 1/2 cup per gallon noted on the bucket.
Good Stuff By Robert on 4/1/2014

This stuff works great for FOWLR tanks, yet I plan on having corals. Therefore i'm thinking i'm going to switch over to the reef crystals.

IO is a great product and fulfills all the needs of a reef. Don't be fooled into thinking inexpensive means cheap.
Awesome salt for both entry levels reefers and experts. By Jordan on 4/1/2014

Excellent product by Instant Ocean. They also have an upgrade with a few of the elements required to dose your aquarium. Both work fantastically.
works well for my FOWLR By turtleghandi on 4/1/2014

This salt works about as well as salt can for my 75 gallon FOWLR. I would recommend this salt to anyone running a FOWLR, but I would recommend the Reef Crystals to anyone wishing to maintain corals.

I have been using this salt for over a year, and have nothing negative to note, except I have to raise calcium from time to time. Might switch over to Reef Crystals, but there is nothing wrong with this product, especially for the price.
Great for beginners By Matthew on 4/1/2014

Being new to saltwater aquariums I went right for this salt. It was a wise choice, this salt mixes fast and easy making an otherwise complicated process super easy.
would have given this product 5 stars but some 5 gallon batches came out cloudy and wouldn't clear up

I contacted BRS via email about their shipment of my bucket of salt, which was arrived broken and spreading salt all over the inner box. They were gracious and quick to make to ship out another bucket at no cost to me. I'm grateful that BRS stood behind their product.

Been using this product for years. Never an issue. I don't think I'll ever switch....even for reefing. You're going to have to supplement anyhow...no need to do it with the salt (unless you're really lightly stocked with coral).

This salt is inexpensive and mixes quickly. So far I have had nothing but good results. This salt mixes is no time and I get stable readings after about an hour maybe hour and a half.
Great salt and best price per gallon By Jason on 4/1/2014
Jason would recommend this product to a friend
I have used IO salt mix for many years. Since I have a 500g tank, price is a important factor for me. The salt mixes within 24 hours and always comes out at the proper levels. Would recommend IO salt to anyone in the hobby, starting or experienced.
Great salt By Christopher Kosak on 4/1/2014

I have used alot of "premium" salts over the years and I just recently came back to good ol' trusty Instant Ocean. Its the cheapest salt only by price. I have noticed an immediate improvement in my corals since switching from Tropic Marine Pro Reef. Hard to understand how this salt can outpreform a 90$ bucket but I believe it does. Just be careful if you run a vodka/zeovit based system because the alk seems to roam around 11DKH at 1.0264 SG. Def worth the money and I am going to stay with my Instant Ocean, should have never spent hundreds more on other salt brands just to come back to "good ol trusty IO"
