- B-Ionic Seawater System Salt Mix - ESV
For the serious aquarist that wants complete control!
Make your salt the exact way you want it with the B-Ionic Seawater System. ESV put together an ultra-pure 4-part salt mix that let's make consistent batches of salt from bucket to bucket.
- 4-Part System
- USP Grade Magnesium Sulfate
- Ultra-Low Heavy Metal Sodium Chloride
- Predissolved Trace Elements
ESV B-Ionic salt lets you create your own consistent salt mix. Other types of salt may not be entirely homogeneous with all the different kinds of salts and dried trace elements in a single mixed bucket. It is very common for salt mixes to settle and not be consistent from batch to batch. The B-Ionic system uses pre-dissolved trace elements in super concentrated solutions that will stay evenly mixed and wont clump in humid environments. Since the hard to dissolve trace elements are already in a liquid solution, batches mix very quickly and can be used within minutes.
The only dry portions are USP grade Magnesium Sulfate, and Ultra-Low Heavy Metal Sodium Chloride. Since the only dry parts are completely the same element through and through you never have to worry about settling or uneven batches.
Recommended Mixing Values @ 34ppt:

The best! By Ramsey on 2/8/2018Ramsey would recommend this product to a friendI've used many different salt mixes over the years and ESV is by far the best. It's a bit pricey and a bit more work, but it's worth it to know you're going to get the same results every batch (assuming no user error).
Long time user By Josh on 12/3/2017Josh would recommend this product to a friendI've used ESV primarily for about 5 years. After a tank crashing bad batch of RedSeaPro mix, i made the switch to ESV. It makes perfectly clear, clean, almost clinical sea water. Only negative is that by weighing nacl, mg, 2 part liquids, its a little time consuming labor- but its quick to deploy after making. Parameters match the chart and I can custom blend if need. I usually run out of Mg before my salt is gone, not exactly equal parts.
Excellent salt - clear, consistent and easy-ish By Reza S on 2/23/2017Reza S would recommend this product to a friendI have used Redsea Coral Pro (great salt but higher parameters than I am looking for), Aquavitro (mixes cloudy - the more it stayed in the mixing bucket the cloudier it got) and then moved to ESV. This salt mixes clean, is spot on everytime in terms of parameters and I find it as easy to mix as any other salt. Here are some tips before you do your first mix:
1- Buy a digital scale - nothing fancy the same stuff that are used in kitchens
2- Decide on you water volume and add but use 10% less RODI water to start
3- Calculate the amount of components that you need for your target water volume
4- Add each component and mix (let the container mix for 15 minutes before adding the next component - between wet liquid components you can wait five minutes).
5- Measure salinity and add more RODI to reach your desired salinity (keep track of how much water you are adding)
6- Record the final amount of RODI and respective weights of each components (this is your baseline - next time you can start for your next mix)
