I use this salt in my 10 gallon nano FOWLR tank. I haven't had any trouble with this product. Starfish are sensitive to salinity and my chocolate chip starfish is doing great. I probably should, but i don't wait 24 hours for it to completely dissolve. I just mix it really well and test with my hydrometer and everything has been working great with this mix so far. I can't speak for a reef tank though since this is a live rock only aquarium.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Giorgio An OK product!
Did as the instructions dictated. Waited over 24 hours to dissolve. It did not dissolve 100%. I waited another 24 hours to make sure, but it left a small amount of mixture in my buckets, as well as residue.
I'm gonna try another salt mix next time.

I've been using Instant Ocean for years and have never had any problems with it. Very reliable, safe, and excellent quality! I would definitely recommend it to experienced and novice saltwater hobbyists alike!

Rated 5 out of 5 by advoc8 The Best Salt
After having problems with another salt many years ago, and knowing many others through the Marine/Reef Aquarium Club who had problems with another prominent marine aquarium salt, we all switched to this salt which some had sworn by for years. Instant Ocean has worked very well for all of us since. I wont sue anything else anymore. No more problems from companies who make salt mixes with poor batch to batch consistency. Instant Ocean Salt has always been very stable! I've been keeping reef Aquaria since 1993 and love it, as do virtually all who walk into my living room (only a well kept very simple but gorgeous 75 gallon tank in my living room nowadays).
