5 Star Review   By DANIEL GARCIA on PetStore.com - Feb 20, 2015   

The product is mixed with another salt mix, but I've test the mix alone and it's spot on for a reef tank that is SPS dominant. Remember, consistency makes the tank stable and we all know how important that is for success. A bit more than others but well worth it. Same review for two different salt mixes, think about it. Try mixing them 50/50 and you'll see!

5 Star Review   By SCOTT J on PetStore.com - Aug 28, 2013   

Like most hobbyists I have used most of the mainstream salt mixes out there and found PRO-REEF to be the best for my reef. Mixed at 1.025 SG my levels remain stable (I do dose TLF Kalk & Brightwell Liquid Reef) with 5% weekly water changes on my 180g system. I mix 40gal batches and never have residue or mixing problems, dissolves fast and clean, also low salt creep compared to past brands. An easy 5* rating and I highly recommend this salt, happy reefing!

This is not a bad salt, but over priced. The best salt I have used over the past year is Brightwells. Brightwells salt measures out as good, but mixes faster and better, never gets clumpy or hard and leaves no residue.

4 Star Review   By ANDREW ALLEGRA on PetStore.com - Nov 21, 2012   

This salt is a really good product, as it mixes very well. The problem is, I had to guess at how much to add, as there are no guidelines at all as to how much salt per gallon of water to add. I figured it out for 35ppt and wrote it on the side of the box.

I have had Instant Ocean, cheap buy for $51.00/ 175 Gallons, I learned a lesson with swiching SG, algea broom and worst, lost some of my SPS. So I called Marine Depot for recommendations, I got advised from expert....switching to Tropic Marine Pro. I switched 30% water change from Istant Ocean to Tropic Marin...and resulted paid off. My SPS seems happier, so my advised to folks out there :" I don't try to save 40 bucks of salt when it costs you more than 200 buck of coral..."

By far the best salt we have used. Maintains most reef systems with little or no additional additives. @ 90.00 a bucket by far the most expensive, but for a reason, it's good salt.

I have been using Marin Pro in my mixed reef for about 10 months now, and I am very happy. My Ca, Alk, Mg, and pH all seem more stable after switching. Granted, I do not have SPS at this time.

5 Star Review   By WILLIE TANG on Marine Depot - Aug 12, 2011   

This is the only salt that I will use. I had used a couple of different brand before, but Pro Reef gives me the best quality. They have the best trace elements, all my corals grows and are very happy living in this water.

Salt above all salts!
5 Star Review   By DANIEL HOST on Marine Depot - Jul 8, 2011   

I have used this salt in the past, but I started buying salt from my local pet store, just because it was cheaper. OOPS!!! I will never do that again. Wow the difference is obvious in my corals when I use Pro reef! I was using coral life and it is not even close! I think my fish are even more active. I stopped in to see an old frined and looked at their tank and it looked so good! I asked what they were adding to the tank to make it look so good and they said Nothing! Just using Tropic Marine Pro reef and changing 5% of the water every monday moring. I knew what my tank had been missing! If you are not sure just give it a try, you will not be let down!!! My kids are even noticing the differences.

Great stability.
5 Star Review   By OLLIE SMITHWICK on Marine Depot - Apr 1, 2011   

I had several problems with BrightWell Aquatics and Instant Ocean. They both seemed to have excess pH swings and algae blooms. Running the lights for 4 hours a day, adding a phosphate reactor, changing the water 20% weekly... nothing could eliminate the algae. Finally I noticed a difference after the second 20% water change with Tropic Marine Pro Reef. Now I am actually keeping SPS successfully.

Best salt
5 Star Review   By es on Marine Depot - Feb 7, 2011   

Tropic Marin Pro Reef Sea Salt seems to be the best available salt. Yeah, a bit pricey, but if you have a coral heavy reef tank, it is so worth it. Much better price ratio for the 200gl buckets than boxes. Keeps the levels where they need to be of all the elements and limits need for other supplemented elements. I use it for weekly 50gl water changes on a 225gl tank / 440 gl system. It disolves fast and leaves very little residue at the bottom of the mixing barrel compared to other brands I've tried. And I've tried lots over the years, which have left a lot of residue and dont mix as well or as fast.

5 Star Review   By JOHN SCHMELZKOPF on Marine Depot - Dec 14, 2010   

Been useing Tropic Marin Pro Reef since it came out. Have tried other brands, always come back to Pro Reef. Never had a bad batch, but have with other brands. Always get consistant results no matter how much I mix up, read the info on some other brands. One brand I recently used because Tropic Marin was out of stock had an insert warning to mix entire bucket at one time or thoroughly mix entire bucket of salt before useing smaller amounts.

Clearly the best
5 Star Review   By JESUS BERMUDEZ on Marine Depot - Dec 9, 2010   

I have used several salt mixes through the years to try new ones. I keep coming back to Pro reef. Unlike some other mixes it does not contain solid particles that do not dissolve in the water. This mix is completely transparent with no solids.

Good Salt Mix.
4 Star Review   By Rizano on Marine Depot - Aug 30, 2010   

Seems to be a good salt mix. Really brings my calcium levels up when I do a water change however, Magnesium levels are at the lower end of the acceptable range when I test. My Magnesium readings are 1300. I have no phosphate issues. I've been using this for 5 months now since I started the 120 gallon tank. Corals are vibrant and wide open. Fish have all been fine. Coraline Algae is growing well. Two different LFS's said this was the best mix to buy. At first I thought that was just a sales pitch but then when I tried to purchase it from them they said they ran out.

5 Star Review   By GUST ELBE on Marine Depot - Jul 11, 2010   

Pay the extra and get this salt! Leaves no residue or anything in the bottom of buckets. You can actually feel the difference between this and other salt mixes. I switched to this salt about a year ago and will never go back to the others. I have nothing bad to say about this stuff, you will not be disappointed.

Excellent salt! After using it for 2 months the colors of my SPS corals became much more brighter and intense. The magnesium level is 1250, CA- 460, KH- 9.3dKH at 1.024. Used Salifert test kits for measurements.

Would definitely not recommend this product. Magnesium levels are way too low, approx 900ppm. Calcium is well under 350. Why would anyone go with this salt? PH and Alkalinity are fine. I switched to Red Sea and am much happier.

5 Star Review   By Nemo 1 on Marine Depot - Oct 30, 2009   

I've been reef keeping for 6 yrs now and this is the first time I used this salt, and I would say that I don't know what I was thinking for not trying this product sooner...It is the best salt IMO, no powdery residue and no chlorine like smell...it disolved very quickly as soon as it get's into the water. My corals are never been happier and open up really good, even the colors are back...especially my Montipora and zoos. Yes it's a little bit pricey but it's WELL worth it.

5 Star Review   By CRAIG NAEGLER on Marine Depot - Jun 4, 2009   

I was looking for a salt to replace the Reefer's best i was using and thought i would try this brand. I've researched a little about this salt on RC and found it's parameters to be in line for what i wanted. It mixed up well and didn't leave that residue in my mixing container like other salt brands. Seems to be pretty good stuff.

Excellent Reef Salt
5 Star Review   By PAUL SHIROMA on Marine Depot - Jun 28, 2008   

After trying out a couple of other brands, including Seachem's Reef Salt and Red Sea's Reef Salt, I switched to the Tropic Marin Pro Reef Salt. I was impressed by how well the salt dissolved (no left overs) and how easily the corals made the transition to the new brand. My water chemistry seems to have improved as well, although longer term testing will be the only way to confirm this (as of the date of this writing I've only done a couple of water changes).

Low Magnesium
3 Star Review   By Scissorhand on Marine Depot - Apr 25, 2008   

When I first tried TMP, I bought a 200 gal box and after mixing at 35ppt the magnesium was lower than NSW. I thought that was due to the fact that I did not mix up the entire bucket. Thus, I bought a smaller 32 gal box and mixed the entire box at one time, magnesium was still lower than NSW (around 1150 or so). I believe TMP is a high quality salt, but manufacturer has got bump up the magnesium for the amount of $$$ that I'm paying for it. I tested magnesium using Elos test kit. I had a friend who tested with Salifert and came up with the same numbers.

best salt
5 Star Review   By rayray on Marine Depot - Apr 19, 2008   

Owners at my frequented LFSs grudgingly told me they use this in their professional displays but sold the cheap crap because thats what hobbists and maintenance crews used - cheap sells. I bought a small box, used RODI H2O & it is amazing. I now add NOTHING to the salt, it dissolves in 10 minutes leaving no residue, and the colors of the SPS/LPS really showed after 2-3 water changes. I do weekly 10% changes and will use nothing else. I now only test for Ca+ & Alk. My expensive corals live & thrive in this stuff. Worth the cost!

great salt
5 Star Review   By ANDREJ SPEC on Marine Depot - Apr 14, 2008   

Dissolves before it hits the bottom of the bucket, just like the other tropic marin, and has tons of calcium and added compounds. Always known as the best salt ever. Worth the extra price.

Best Salt Period
5 Star Review   By Leonard Papagno on Marine Depot - Apr 13, 2008   

Without a doubt this salt is the hands down winner when it comes to synthetic sea salt. I originally bought this at a local Store in Orlando, Fl when I was picking up a coral. I had never seen it before or even heard of it and the price was three times higher than any other salt I had bought. I went ahead though and purchased some and I have not been disappointed since. The results have been nothing less than great. I use to make up water a week in advance in a large Rubbermaid can and after a week the diatoms covered ever in of the can and ruined the water. I don’t use RO like the majority of people in this hobby use so I always thought that was the reason. Plus my tank after a few days would start to bloom diatoms even with an abundance of snails on the glass. Since I bought Tropic Marin Pro I know longer have diatoms and I can go longer between water changes and use less salt per gallon than with any other mix. I mix it up 3 weeks in advance and the water is just as clear as the first day I mixed it. I will use no other mix ever period. A bonus also is my coralline algae have finally taken hold of my tank after 4 years of trying to get it to go. Great Product and it the long run you will save money with fewer changes.

Nice salt
5 Star Review   By Ryan Lynch on Marine Depot - Mar 8, 2008   

Well I have used Red Sea Coral Pro Salt and this salt. Red Sea salt was great dKh 10 Cal-420 1.021. The only reason I switched was because of the residue left over in my mixer after I mixed. Tropic-Marin has no residue after I mix and is very clean but only has a dKh of 7. I questioned them about this on there website and the answer I got was natural seawater is 7 and that is what there salt stays at. I personally like to be higher so I use a dKH additive with this salt.

Best salt
5 Star Review   By BRYANT on Marine Depot - Mar 4, 2008   

This salt dissolves very fast. I used to use Instant Ocean, but that would always leave some white particles/residue behind. After every water change, I see a remarkable response from all of my hard corals. Dosing calcium/alkalinity alone doesn't seem to keep the growth up. I worry that continued use of this will leave my bottles of supplements useless.

The Best Salt Ever
5 Star Review   By PATRICK L on Marine Depot - Feb 22, 2008   

I have used many Salts before and I have never found any that I like until I used Tropic Marin Pro Reef Salt on my 200 Gallon Setup About a year ago and I am still using it today and will continue to use it

Pro Reef salt is the BEST!
5 Star Review   By RAMAN on Marine Depot - Feb 22, 2008   

I have owned saltwater tanks for over 15years now. The Marine Tropic Pro-Reef Salt is by far the best salt I have ever used. The only algae that it promotes are purple coralline algae. With other products I would grow purple coralline on the rocks and a green type of coralline on the glass. After switching to Marine Tropic Pro Reef, I have noticed the green type of coralline go away and now I only grow the purple coralline on the glass and rocks. Also, all of my coral is growing like crazy!! This salt is a little high in cost but well worth it.

Decent Salt
3 Star Review   By Jeff on Marine Depot - Feb 5, 2008   

This salt dissolves fairly fast. The trace elements are definitely in there. Only problem I had was with calcium levels and alkalinity once I mixed a batch. Ive done 2 since I bought this product, both times calcium was 500+ and alkalinity was a consistent 2.8 meq/L each time. Sorry, but next time I will be choosing a different brand.

Best salt I've ever tried
5 Star Review   By RICKY GOETTEL on Marine Depot - Jan 27, 2008   

This salt gives amazing colors to my SPS coral. I like that the dKH buffers at 7-8 and Calcium is around 420ppm. I'm never switching back to Red Sea Pro Coral after seeing great results with Tropic Marin Pro Reef!

Great salt
5 Star Review   By LUIS on Marine Depot - Dec 31, 2007   

I used to use corralife which is fine but think this is much better it might be a dollar or 2 more but my fish colors are better and overall just seems to be great salt. It might take a minute to disolve more than corralife but big deal its great salt. I find less algae with this salt than corralife . I also like seachem as much both tied for first place . Both take a minute more than corralife to disolve but both I notice things just better in tank. I have nothing against Corralife used it for yrs but dont find it as good as tropic marin or seachem.

The best I've used.
5 Star Review   By SJB on Marine Depot - Dec 31, 2007   

For a long time I relied on additives to keep my Calcium and Magnesium levels up. Then I discovered Tropic Marin Pro and I now use very little supplements to my water. I have two reef tanks, one 500 gallon, one 210 gallon. I do a 10 percent water change weekly on my tanks. I'm able to maintain my mag and cal at optimum levels this way and it costs much less than constantly adding additives or using reactors - and safer. Obviously I make my own water and this is absolutely the cleanest salt. Every other salt I've used has left deposits in my mixing tanks. Tropic Marin is always clean. WELL worth the extra $$.

Great Value
5 Star Review   By James on Marine Depot - Dec 24, 2007   

Well we all know that Pro-Reef Tropic Marin is an AMAZING salt for your reef because of all the elements infused in the mix. Its really great that this 200 gallon mix is available from Marine Depot because its a great value compared to having multiple 32 Gallon boxes.

Better
5 Star Review   By NICHOLAS HANSEN on Marine Depot - Dec 24, 2007   

I was originally using coral pro sea salt. And decided to switch to tropic marin because i heard good things about it and my red sea salt had a low calcium reading when i mix it. So i got the TM and it dissolved much quicker! But the calcium reading was still low. So I think I have a bad test kit.
