Nothing Better

Comments: I've been in the hobby since 1988. I've tried just about every brand - some of them several times because they are/were rated more highly by other aquarists. Everything just seems healthier when I use Instant Ocean. It mixes well and dissolves quickly. For me, the regular product works better than the Reef Crystals even for SPS. I find the most economical recipe for success is a good skimmer, good lights and regular water changes with Instant Ocean (5%/week). No other gadgets, reactors or supplements needed - except for phosphate reducer on heavily fed tanks.

Comments: The LPS(a large chain) stopped carrying the larger salt containers. Thought I would order this online. Shipping was free. Worked out great. I ordered the box. It contains individually sealed bags so nothing gets damp. Its Instant Ocean so you know its quality stuff.

Comments: I've never had a bad experience with this salt. All levels are right around where they need to be and for the money, this is the best salt available (when you get the big 200g box). Each of the 4 bags makes about 50g which makes it nice and easy for those w/ a 55g drum or a 55g mixing tank. Just pour and circulate... DONE.

Comments: I have tried different types if salt, but I always come back to Instant OceAn basic mix. I can always bring up the calcium and alkalinity and other salts that claim to get the proper quantities always seem to fall short. I have been very happy with this mix in about 10 years if aquarium experience. Shipping cost is low for the box salt as well!
