Great Reef Salt Mix

Coral grows like it should with 10 gallon weekly water changes in a 80 gallon system. Rarely have to add additives. With weekly changes it has become a no fuss tank.

Fine Salt, Poor Value

I've used about all of the salts out there and have had good results with Reef Crystals. The biggest reason that I stopped using it is that you get less per bag then other brands. A singe 50 gallon bag makes between 40-45 gallons of water for me. With Kent, I get a solid 50 gallons. In addition, the RC bags do not have a zip-lock feature which tends to be messier and absorbs more moisture from the air. Just not a good value IMO. Please MD, carry Kent salt again!

Ideal Mix

Have used Instant Ocean Salt Mixes (primarily Reef Crystals) for over 12 years in my 144 gallon tank. Have four specimens that are 12+ years old and very healthy (had five, but my 13 yr old Maroon Clownfish decided to stage a 'Finding Nemo' escape right before X-Mas) and the proof is in the pudding, Clearly superior results using their products.

Inconsistent salt dont bother

I used this salt for 2 years and started having inconsistencies from batch to batch. Alk 8dKH, Ca 450, and Mg 1080. Did my own research and compared 4 big brands. Reef Crystals, Seachem Reef Salt, Tropic Marin Pro reef, and Red Sea Coral Pro. All were off except Red Sea Coral Pro spot on with what is labeled in the bucket.
