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 – 1200-1300 mg/l
Ca – 360-400 mg/l
K – 300-350 mg/l
dKH – 8.0-9.0
pH – 8.0-8.2
Dissolve salt with RO/DI water in a clean container. To achieve a salinity of 30 ppt, we suggest starting with 1 kg (2.2lbs) of Probiotic reef salt per 8 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.
Crystal clear By aquanut59 on 4/7/2018aquanut59 would recommend this product to a friendI just switched from Kent Salt Mix which I had been using for years. They changed something in their formula (not to mention packaging) and was making my tank very cloudy upon use during a water change. I thought I would give this a try and I noticed the difference in clarity right away. My water was crystal clear when I replaced what I took out of my tank. Even my fish seemed happier. This is my new go to Salt Mix for now.
Decent alternative to IO, but the numbers don't match By Jase on 2/4/2017Jase would recommend this product to a friendAfter testing some IO, I was looking for a salt mix that was higher in mag so that I wouldn't have to dose so much with water changes. This seemed like a perfect match from the numbers quoted on the website, but the actual testing showed much lower alk numbers when mixed to 1.026.
Calcium-375, Alk-7.2, Mag-1290
The calcium and magnesium numbers are about where I want them, but I was really hoping for at least the quoted 8-9 range in alk. All I've done is traded dosing lots of mag for IO to lots of alk for this. FWIW, the potassium levels are supposed to be higher than IO, but I was really hoping for a cheap salt mix that would only require a minor bit of tweaking before a water change.
Mixes quickly and easily By Johnny on 1/16/2017Johnny would recommend this product to a friendSeems to be a quality mix. Only time will tell
