What's the difference between Tropic Marin Salts? - #AskBRStv
Choosing the right salt mix is important as you want to pick one and stick with it. Whether your focused on quality or price, consistency is the key when it comes to mixing saltwater for your reef aquarium. Tropic Marin is one of the foremost brands when it comes to salt mix and for good reason, their salts are made from pharmecuetical grade materials and mixed in smaller batches to control consistency. That means your salt will dissolve fast, it will mix clear in minimal time, and it won't leave behind any brown residue or impurities like you get with many other salt mix brands on the market.
There are four different types of Tropic Marin salt mixes formulated specifically based on the type of tank you maintain.
Tropic Marin Classic - Great for fish only systems and reef tanks with a higher alkalinity level. Can safely be mixed and stored away for future use.
Tropic Marin Pro-Reef - Designed for reef tanks with lower alkalinity and stable major element supplementation. Can Safely be stored away for future use.
Tropic Marin Bio-Actif - Contains probiotic bacteria for fish and invert health. Cannot be stored and should be used within 24 hours of mixing.
Tropic Marin Syn-Biotic - Contains probiotic bacteria for fish and invert health. Also contains prebiotic additives for a mild carbon dosing effect that naturally reduces nitrate and phosphate levels and feeds corals. Cannot be stored and should be used within 24 hours of mixing.
