I never liked Red Sea. Their products are good but inconsistent in my opinion.

Salt mix, not premixed. You make it at home. Enough salt to make 50 gallons.

I've used IO, IO Reef crystals and Red Sea coral pro. Really no difference between coral pro and reef crystals that I've seen. I still have to dose no matter what mix I use.
