Aquaforest Sea Salt is a ideal salt for Fish only, LPS and SPS coral tanks.
Aquaforest Sea Salt Synthetic marine salt for aquariums with fish and less delicate corals and invertebrates.
When setting up new aquariums it is recommended that the first animals are placed no sooner than 10-14 days after filling the aquarium.
After dissolving the salt, freshly prepared marine water can be used immediately.
Instructions for use:
Dissolve the salt in previously prepared demineralised water. Water temperature should be about 24°C (75°F).
For salinity of 30 ppt dissolve about 345 g per 10 litres of water. Stir the solution vigorously for about 15 min.
When the salt is fully dissolved and the solution clear the saline water is ready to use. Keep the salt in a dry and dark place.
Once dissolved, use the salt within 5 days.
Parameters of a salt are presented below:
24°C / 75.2°F
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
Aquaforest products are manufactured in the EU under strict laboratory supervision to meet the highest quality standards.
Each product is prepared from carefully selected raw components in quantities proven to yield consistent composition.
How is Aquaforest Marine Salt product range tested?
Aquaforest mix their Marine Salt in 1 metric tonne (2204lb) batches, and 3 separate samples per batch are collected during the production stage for testing.
Each of these samples is dissolved in 15 litres (4US gal) of RO water.
Aquaforest experienced team of professionals perform ICP-OES analysis to verify that the chemical composition is within consistent range, and to rule out the presence of unwanted contaminants at the same time.
Note: Even though Aquaforest salt is thoroughly mixed, not every bucket/box will be identical.
The parameters can vary slightly between containers and around a 2-3% variation is acceptable.
This fluctuation is a result of both physical properties of the mix and the limitations of the processing techniques available.
These variations are still smaller than the typical margin for error for popular hobbyist test kits.
