Instant Ocean® Sea Salt is the most carefully formulated and universally preferred sea salt in the world. The #1 choice of hobbyists, public aquariums, and scientific research facilities, Instant Ocean Sea Salt has set the industry standard for quality, consistency, and value for more than 50 years.
 
1. Mix Instant Ocean® with ordinary dechlorinated tap or purified water.
NOTE: To prepare small quantities, use 1/2 cup of Instant Ocean per each U.S. gallon of water. Mix as directed.
 
2. Stir vigorously to ensure a good mix. Although the Instant Ocean solution may be used immediately, we suggest aerating the water until it achieves oxygen/carbon dioxide equilibrium.
3. Measure specific gravity with an Instant Ocean® Hydrometer. 
 
Recommended Specific Gravity Range: 1.020 - 1.024 at 77°F.
NOTE: 1.5 lbs of Instant Ocean is formulated to create 5 gallons of saltwater at a specific gravity of 1.022.
 
4. Adjust salt level accordingly. If specific gravity is too low, add more Instant Ocean. lf too high, add more dechlorinated water.
5. Change 20% of aquarium water every two weeks to maintain optimum water quality.
 
USAGE NOTE: NEVER mix salt in an aquarium containing animals.

Purchasing these box salt are the cheapest way to go. They are nicely packaged is 4 separate bags to keep dry. I dumped 3 bags in used saltwater pails I had. Will purchase from here from now on. Shipping rates make these cheaper than buying 5gallon pails

I used this salt years ago as standard, never an issue. When I came back to the hobby, I saw all the new brands and claims made. I tried different brands, saw nothing special. You still need to supplement parameters depending on what is in your tank, such as alkalinity or calcium levels. I have just a few lps soft coral and anemone IO is practical.and good levels for this tank.I have not experienced the dirty mixing at the bottom as some have claimed.

Been using it since 1993 here at SBMarine. Very reliable. Best all around in my humble opinion.

Maybe not the best salt, but the best priced and in my experience the most reliable out of the dozen plus types I have tried. Also nice packaging job and shipping time from reef supplies. No issues with these HEAVY boxes coming courier.
