Why does BRS recommend this?

We have been using HW salt in our office tanks for a while with great success.  The salt is very consistent and mixes quickly and clean.  With no unnecessary added chemicals that most salt mixes add to appear clean, HW has passed the test, and standards that many public aquariums and high end displays require in a salt mix.

hw-Marinemix Reefer Salt Mix is a high purity blend of salt mix produced using a synthetic process and does not contain any recycled components. Created specifically for the reef aquarium and the constant demand for minerals, trace elements, amino acids and biocatalysts. Provides enhanced calcium and magnesium concentrations for vigorous growth of corals.

  • One of the first synthetic salt mixes ever produced
  • No anti-caking agents
  • No chemical or environmental pollutants, no nitrates, phosphates or silicates
  • Natural, stable pH and optimal alkalinity
  • Contains no EDTA which can chelate many necessary trace elements
  • Optimized with amino acids and organically stabilized iodine - great for the reef hobbyist
  • Makes approx. 160 Gallons of solution at 1.024 salinity

hw-Marinemix Reefer Salt Mix is highly used for reef hobbyists across Europe. hw-Wiegandt has been producing aquarium salt for over 50 years experience producing salt mix, boasting its professional use in public aquariums, universities and research facilities since 1968.

 

hw-Marinemix is produced under strict quality control guidelines using a biocatalyst system based on the analysis of natural seawater.

 

BRS recommends using a complete salt mix, to save money and time on testing supplies and major element adjustments. Upon BRS analysis - hw-Marinemix Reefer contained Calcium at 445-450 ppm, Alk of 9.0 dKH, Magnesium at 1380 ppm.

 

Mixing Instructions - Add 1/2 cup of HW Reefer Salt to 1 Gallon of RO/DI water. Let it mix until it is clear and test the specific gravity of the solution. Add salt or water as needed to meet your desired salinity.

To mix by weight - Add approximately 1lbs of HW Reefer Salt every 3.6 gallons of RODI water. Let it mix until it is clear and test the specific gravity of the solution. Add salt or water as needed to meet your desired salinity.

Product Questions

I am currently using tropic marin actif salt mix. If I wanted to switch to this hw-Marine Mix, can I just switch for my next partial water change or do I need to make the transition more gradual?
Question by: Bryan on May 8, 2016, 8:36 AM
How much do I use for this 30 gallon tank? I tried to find the direction but nothing for mixing direction per gallon.
Question by: Max McLaughlin on Jun 28, 2016, 2:48 PM
Great question!
Salt mixes typically do not include an exact amount to use rather you will use a refractometer and slowly add salt until you reach 1/026 SG or 35 PPT. Typically you can start with 1/2 cup per gallon and increase from there.

Great question! HW is optimized with amino acids and organically stabilized iodine, it contains a proprietary blend of trace elements so there really isn't a need for additives.
