How to Use
The commercially available 180-gram bags of Tropic Marin Pro-Reef NANO Sea Salt are used for refilling the NANO Shake & Make container. One bag of Pro-Reef NANO Sea Salt Sachet makes 5 liters of Pro-Reef seawater. To make 10 liters of seawater, add 2 bags of Tropic Marin Pro-Reef NANO Sea Salt Sachets to the rinsed foldable container.
Then simply add 10 liters or 2.64 gallons of RO/DI water at a temperature of 73-77°F / 23- 25°C to the NANO Shake & Make container, shake it well, and the perfect seawater is ready in a matter of seconds. The seawater prepared in this manner can be used as soon as the salt has been completely dissolved and once the solution is clear. The specific gravity of the sea salt solution should range from 1.025 to 1.027 (at 73-77°F / 23-25°C), corresponding to a salinity level of 32-35 ‰ (psu), and the pH-value should be in the range of 8.0-8.4.
A weekly, partial water change, replacing 10-20% of the total water volume with Tropic Marin Pro-Reef Salt Mix will help to maintain the water quality that your livestock needs for good health.
Approx. 7° KH, calcium approx. 440 ppm, magnesium approx. 1350 ppm
For nano reef tanks with higher calcium requirements. To maintain the alkalinity in a 6-8° dKH range; particularly suitable when using a calcium reactor.
Tropic Marin Pro-Reef Sea Salt has been designed to meet the special requirements of reef aquariums with optimized concentrations of calcium and magnesium, which promote the growth of corals. The lower buffering and the correct pH value serve to stabilize the natural water values, and particularly, the hardness of carbonates, even with the use of calcium reactors. Natural and stable conditions for delicate marine life are achieved only by accurately balancing all influencing factors.
Tropic Marin Pro-Reef is thus the ideal foundation for the care and growth of fish, corals and other aquatic invertebrates in modern reef aquariums. Use seawater prepared with Tropic Marin Pro-Reef for regular water changes in your seawater aquarium, to start a new aquarium and to re-equilibrate the pH of a tank.
