Worst I have ever seen. One of the shops I worked for used it once, it turned the tanks brown. They quickly went back to their old salt and it went away.

For reef tanks I recommend Tropic Marin (regular, not the Pro Reef). For fish only I would just do Instant Ocean.

There is actually more calcium, alkalinity, etc in the regular than the Pro Reef. The idea was that the Pro Reef was for high tech reef tanks with calcium reactors to provide those essential components. Even they admit they should have switched the names.
