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.

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!

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!
