Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long time User but have questions about sediments I have used IO and Reef Crystals for over 25 years in the hobby but not till recently I've been mixing full bags of salt at a time in a 100 gallon food grade water barrel and noticed that there are alot of brown sediment that end up settling after mixing. What is this stuff since it's definitely not seen in my RO water tank?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product!! Use this in both my 26 gallon bf as well as my 75 gallon bf and in my experience this salt is awesome. As long as you follow the instructions and use a refractometer and not a hydrometer it is great!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Results I've been a long user of Instant Ocean, I figured since I had good results with it I would give the Reef Crystals a try since my system was much more heavily stocked with SPS.After using several batches I noticed my Calcium and Magnesium dropping after water changes. So I began testing every salt mix after that. On three consecutive batches my calcium ranged from 300-350 and Magnesium ranged from 900-1000. Very poor parameters. It's lower than what I got from Instant Ocean which is cheaper too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for my 65 gallon reef tank! Just make sure to close the bucket completely after you are done using it, the salt pulls moisture out of the air and it will get chunky if the lid is left on the bucket.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from don't waste your money don't waste your money on the buckets of reef crystals. as you get to the end of the bucket the salinity drastically changes as per the recommend doses. spend the extra money and get the better stuff that actually lasts till the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What A Difference! My LFS uses Instant Ocean basic salt in there 15,000 sq. ft. Facility. I now use Reef Crystals with their RO DI water. 48 hour mix, my corals and tank NEVER LOOKED THIS GOOD! All parameters are great. Very highly recommended for reef aquarium!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reef Crystals are nice product. I've used this exclusively on my 15 gallon mixed reef since setting it up. Crystals mix quickly and clear, and if I let it sit overnight I have no cloudiness when doing a water change. The Calcium tests at about 390. The Alk is a bit high (about 14 dKH) but I certainly don't have to dose! SPS seem to grow quickly with just regular water changes.I may switch over to regular Instant Ocean salt since it's a bit cheaper and the levels are certainly high enough for my nano needs, but I do love how quick the Reef Crystals dissolve!
