Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: I have used Instant Ocean for most of my marine fish tanks. It is a good product that dissolves quickly with very little to no residue. The only thing is that I have to use buffer to get my PH up to 8.2 - 8.4 . My fish seem to like it . For corals you should use a reef grade salt. The price is great especially at Marine Depot , and shipping is very fast.

Comments: This salt takes a while to mix and you get a layer of foam and dirt on the top after mixing. Recommend Coralife (mixes really fast), red sea max, and reef crystals.

Comments: Just starting out again had to upgrade from a 55gal to a 75 Gal CornerFlo this was a minor setback to going to a Reef tank I have to wait till the 75 is stable and fully established I won't put any Corals in till it's running about a year min! so this salt is perfect for now until then! I saw someone say it wasnt sutable for a reef tank and that is correct the same company makes "Instant Ocean Reef Crystals Salt Mix" that I will switch to when needed! it makes no sence to pay extra for someting I don't yet need.

Posted: 3/19/2013 from NASHVILLE, TN UNITED STATES
3.0 5
Experience Level: Beginner


Comments: It's great salt: easy to dissolved. My fish are perfectly happy with this salt. I add 300g of salt in 2 gallons of water. It gives me a gravity of 1.023, pH=8.11 and calcium= 400ppm max. My only complain is that it is pretty low on pH and calcium and may not be suitable for corals.
