Pharmaceutical Grade Salt for the Modern Aquaria!
Designed to meet the strict requirements of reef aquariums, Tropic Marin Pro Reef Salt mix contains optimized levels of calcium and magnesium while keeping the correct pH value and a balance of all 70 trace elements required by corals to grow and thrive. Pro-Reef is the ideal start to any new tank from fish only to a full-blown reef tank, not to mention when used as the salt for your water changes, it will help re-equilibrate the pH of the tank, allowing the proper balance of carbonates to bicarbonates leading to faster overall coral growth.
We suggest starting with 1/2 Cups of Tropic Marin Pro Reef Salt per 1 Gallon of RODI water. For the best results, the water should be circulating and at a temperature of 73-77 °F. Once the water is up to temperature and circulating, slowly adding the appropriate amount of salt will allow it to fully dissolve quickly without creating any concentrated areas where precipitation may occur.
When you have added almost all of the salt and the mixture is fully dissolved and clear, start measuring the specific gravity with a refractometer or similar instrument. Keep adding small amounts of salt until the specific gravity is the value you desire. The specific gravity of the sea salt solution should range from 1.025 to 1.027 (at 73-77 °F / 23-25 °C) and the pH -value should be in the range of 8.0 – 8.4. If all parameters are correct, the salt water is ready to use.
Note: Always add the salt to the water, never the water to the salt.

I love this place! Everything is extremely healthy and well taken care of. The owner is likely the nicest guy you’ll ever meet who deeply cares about the livestock and their well being. My fiancé and I will be shopping here for all of our aquarium needs. Thanks so much for such a positive atmosphere and just putting your heart and soul into a great small business. Don’t hesitate to go check it out!
