Still not 100% convinced...

Comments The product does work as advertised. It seems to have those extra elements to make coral happier. Its pretty expensive and not everyone caries it.


Liked about it Corals love it, Growth in main tank and in refugium are amazing.


Didn't like My RO/DI system is in my garage. So my 50 gallon reservoir is also in garage. In Florida that equals to a very hot garage. When i get water and mix it the salt mix heats up like crazy. The salt mix does not mix well. I get cloudy water every time! In fact i let it sit for almost a week and still the water was extremely cloudy.I think and hoping is user error by not mixing in room temp. Going to try this tomorrow and see if mixing problems change.

Reef tank loves it

Comments This was recommended by my LFS. I was using a different brand, and was satisfied, but I have gradually moved away from using additives (well, as little as possible anyway)... This product delivers a stout "pharmaceutical grade" salt mix, in a large (5g) bucket that produces about 225 gallons. Instructions are in Metric, which is cool, but took a quick Goggle search to convert to US. I mix 2 1/3 cup of mix per 5g of RO. I have a 90g reef tank, with a 20g refugium/sump/skimmer below-tank setup, and change 5 gallons every Saturday.


Liked about it This stuff is very fine and mixes instantly in my room temperature (70F) RO. After I sift Salinity into my 5g container, it seems very little mixing is necessary, if at all. I mix it anyway, just because I like to. I also prefer to let it set for 24 hours before perfuming a water change. My fish and soft corals seem to thrive with this product. Also, I noticed valuable coralline algae growth-rate has increased. In fact, the water is so clean I have suffered some significant snail losses, but if there's no food source...
My readings with Salinity are spot-on: pH: 8.1/Specific Gravity: 1.025/Calcium: 420ppm/Alkalinity: 125ppm/Nitrates: 0/ Ammonia: 0. It's chock full of calcium, trace minerals and elements which reduce the need for additives cheaper mixes require. Love it.


Didn't like It does smell like stinky feet to me (when dry)... I always laugh at myself, because I forget about the smell, until the next time I open the container, and I'm like, "Whoa! there's that smell again!" But it goes away fast. The lock on the top of the container is tough to open if you lock it all the way down (it's heavy grade, my pre-teen kids are NOT getting into this thing)...

Aquavitro Salinity

Comments performs as advertised. it is a tad more expensive, but it mixes out 225 gallons per 5 gallon bucket.


Liked about it it smells bad. like the ocean. hrmmm... i would say that is possibly a good thing! this is the only product i use now over any other lesser salt makers. hands down you get what you pay for. the buckets are stout and lock down nicely. the salt mixes well with ro/di.


Didn't like like any other salt in a bucket, mix it up some before using a new one. during shipping it settles and can throw off its ballance. the lid of course is built nicely but Watch that Handle! they snap Right off! i gave it a 4.5 on overall satisfaction due to the handle breaking every time.
