LiveAquaria 53-Gallon Mix Professional Reef Salt
For best results, use Reverse Osmosis/Deionized (RO/DI) water at a temperature between 70-78°F when preparing LiveAquaria Professional Reef Salt. It is best practice to check RO/DI water quality with a TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) meter. Ideal TDS level should be 0 ppm and no greater than 10 ppm. Use a new, food-safe container dedicated to salt water mixing only.
Mix 1/2 cup of LiveAquaria Professional Reef Salt with each U.S. gallon of RO/DI water. Add salt slowly using a mixing pump, powerhead, or airstone, and mix until salt is completely dissolved. Use a properly calibrated refractometer to measure salinity.
Adjust salinity as necessary to reach desired range between 28-35 ppt (1.021-1.026 Specific Gravity).
Once mixed to a clear solution, add a heater to maintain the water temperature of the prepared saltwater so it matches the water temperature of your aquarium (70-78°F).
Please allow 2-4 hours before using the freshly prepared saltwater to ensure optimum clarity and stabilization of alkalinity and pH levels.
