Aquaforest Probiotic Reef Salt 22kg
Fully synthetic marine salt created for cultured corals. Its formula is designed to create the best conditions for marine animals. The micronutrients and macronutrients contained in the formula fulfil the demand of corals for proper growth and pigmentation. Probiotic bacteria contained in the salt reduce the content of nitrates and phosphates and prevent the growth of pathogenic bacteria in the marine aquarium. After dissolving the salt, freshly prepared marine water can be used immediately. When setting up new aquariums, it is recommended that the first animals are placed no sooner than 10-14 days after filling the aquarium. Due to the content of probiotic bacteria the dKH value should be maintained at 6.5-8.0. Higher values may have a negative effect on the growth of SPS corals.
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 compositi on.
How is our Marine Salt product range tested?
We mix our Marine Salt in 1 metric tonne (2204lb) batches, and 3 separate samples per batch are collected during the production stage for testi ng. Each of these samples is dissolved in 15 litres (4US gal) of RO water. Our experienced team of professionals perform ICP-OES analysis to verify that the chemical compositi on is within consistent range, and to rule out the presence of unwanted contaminants at the same ti me. Note: Even though our salt is thoroughly mixed, not every bucket/box will be identi cal. The parameters can vary slightly between containers and around a 2-3% variation is acceptable. This fl uctuati on is a result of both physical properties of the mix and the limitati ons of the processing techniques available. These variations are still smaller than the typical margin for error for popular hobbyist test kits.
Recommended salinity for different aquarium types:
Macro and micro elements in the water have different levels depending on the salinity:
GO PURPLE, GO GREEN!
We simply love the oceans, that’s why our buckets are made with 20% of ocean-recovered plastic! Instead of producing more plastic waste, we decided to make world a better place and use materials, that are collected straight from the ocean!
To make the packaging safe we used:
- safe dyes & enamels
- fully recyclable plastic (20% of which comes from the ocean waste)
Gradually, we’ll work on using more ocean waste materials for our packaging. We’ve also reduced the amount of plastic produced by replacing old-fashioned packaging with bags dedicated for reefing products. These new bags allowed us to reduce plastic introduced into the environment by 85%! We still search for natural solutions, new suppliers and packaging ways, that help us all to clean the oceans. Please, remember, that you don’t have to throw away the buckets, you can always:
- use Aquaforest refill bags
- use it for storage, cleaning, tank maintenance
If you don’t need the used bucket, please recycle!
