- Original Balling Component - Part C - Tropic Marin
Part C - 1 kg Sodium Chloride Free Reef Salt
One of the three-part original balling method, Tropic Marin components add calcium, alkalinity, and sodium chloride free sea salt to maintain the crucial balance of elements in your aquarium's water. The balanced mixture allow for fast growth of coral skeletons while maintaining the major and minor trace elements to avoid the decrease in required elements like traditional two-part dosing regimens.

Tropic Marin Three-Part Balling System
- Original Balling Component Part A - Calcium
- Original Balling Component Part B - Alkalinity
- Original Balling Component Part C - Trace Elements
Dissolve the appropriate amount of the salt separately, as indicated below, in individual containers containing RODI water. Once mixed and clear the solutions are then ready to use. The amount to dose is as simple as dosing equal quantities of the separate solutions daily or varying quantities of each separate solution to achieve the recommended levels in the aquarium. These separate solutions are very stable and can be stored indefinitely.
Salt needed for 5 Liters of solution:
A - Calcium chloride dihydrate (part A): 380 g / 0.84 lb / 16 scoops
B - Sodium carbonate/sodium bicarbonate (part B): 378 g / 0.83 lb / 21 scoops
C - Sodium chloride free sea salt (part C): 120 g / 0.26 lb / 5 scoops
Salt needed for 1 Gallon of solution:
A - Calcium chloride dihydrate (part A): 288 g / 12 scoops
B - Sodium carbonate/sodium bicarbonate (part B): 286 g / 16 scoops
C - Sodium chloride free sea salt (part C): 91 g / 4 scoops
30 ml / 1 fl.oz of each solution raise the calcium concentration of 10 US-gal./35 l by 15 mg/l (ppm) calcium and 2.2 °dH. The maximum recommended dose is 60 ml / 2 fl.oz. of each solution per 10 US-gal./35 l per day.
Concentration of solution:
A - Calcium chloride dihydrate (part A): 20.000 mg/l (ppm) Ca
B - Sodium carbonate/sodium bicarbonate (part B): 2800° dKH/l
C - Sodium chloride free sea salt (part C): 3350 mg/l Mg; 980 mg/l K
Recommended concentration in the aquarium:
A - Calcium chloride dihydrate (part A): 400 – 450 mg/l (ppm) Ca
B - Sodium carbonate/sodium bicarbonate (part B): 6 – 9° dKH
C - Sodium chloride free sea salt (part C): 1250 – 1400 mg/l Mg; 375 – 400 mg/l K

Recommended By Philip on 11/28/2019Philip would recommend this product to a friendI love this stuff, makes mag + trace elements so simple that it would be hard not to recommend it. but -1 star due to the price constantly going up over the last 6-12 months
Mixed clean and clear. By Jeff on 2/8/2019Jeff would recommend this product to a friendI'm using this with BRS 2 part.
Good Product, Bad Package By Patrick on 8/24/2018Patrick would recommend this product to a friendThe plastic bag in which the powder is packaged is zipped shut, but it is not heat-sealed. The package at some point had been put under pressure, and the relatively weak zipper on the bag burst open, littering the inside of the box with powder. It wasn't a lot, but the stuff in the bag has clearly absorbed moisture from being exposed to air. While it hasn't clumped too badly, I'm not sure how the increased weight will affect measuring this out with a precise scale.
It mixed up crystal clear and I'm sure does what it says on the packaging. But, the way this is packaged before shipping could definitely use some more fine-tuning.
If using BRS 2-part, what are mixing and dosing guidelines for TROPIC MARIN Part C? I am dosing 6.5 ml Soda Ash and Calcium 24 doses/day (Soda Ash on the hour...Calcium on the 1/2 hour)
In a BRS video, it shows part C being added directly to the BRS 2 part mix. Is this the recommended approach, or should we dose separately in a third reservoir?
Great question! We would recommend using a separate dosing container and mixing 7 1/2 scoops per 1-gallon. Dose equal parts per your Alkalinity consumption. If you have any further questions please let us know. Take care!
