How to Choose a Salt Mix:

it is very important to take your tanks requirements into account when choosing a salt mix. We suggest selecting a salt that closely resembled the balance of elements that is most similar to the range you wish to keep them at in your aquarium.

Mg – 1300-1380 mg/l

S – 840-890 mg/l

Ca – 410-440 mg/l

K – 380-400 mg/l

F – 1.2-1.3 mg/l

Fe – 0.08-0.09 mg/l

Sr – 7-9 mg/l

dKH – 7.4-8.2

pH – 7.8-8.2



Mixing Instructions:

Dissolve salt with RO/DI water in a clean container. To achieve a salinity of 33 ppt, we suggest starting with 1 kg (2.2lbs) of Probiotic reef salt per 7.1 gallons (27 liters) of RO/DI water. Stir the mixture vigorously until it is fully dissolved and clear. Once the solution is transparent check the salinity with a refractometer and then it can be used right away.


Note: We highly recommend heating your freshly made saltwater to match your tanks temperature, allowing for the best results.

Great question! We do recommend following the manufacturer's directions for use. Using the product within their recommended time frame will help ensure that the levels claimed by them are still within those ranges. :-)
