Coral Sea Salt is a synthetic marine salt for maine aquariums with fish and hard corals
as well as invertebrates by providing a balanced level
of the main elements (Calcium, Magnesium, Carbonates) to be found in a premium quality salt.
The Coral Sea Salt is mixed in small batches of 500Kg then separate samples are taken per batch during this production stage for testing.
Each samples is then dissolved in 1 litre of RO water.
The chemical composition is then tested to enure the salt is within a 2-3% variation which is acceptable as these perameters
are smaller then those found with the normal hobbyist test kits.
There may be some small fluctuations in the result of the physical properties of the mix and the limitations of the processing methods available,
however, as stated these are smaller then those found with the normal hobbyist test kits. .
Directions for use
1. Gather the necessary materials:
- Marine salt mix specifically designed for aquarium use
- Clean container or bucket (non-metallic)
- Mixing pump or powerhead
- RO/DI water or pre-mixed saltwater
2. Prepare the water:
- If using tap water, use a reverse osmosis/deionization (RO/DI) filtration system to remove impurities and ensure
the water quality is suitable for marine fish and corals.
- If using RO/DI water, check its salinity using a hydrometer or refractometer.
The ideal salinity range for most marine aquariums is 1.022-1.026 specific gravity or 32-35 parts per thousand (ppt).
3. Determine the required amount of salt mix:
Always add salt to water; never vice versa. Never add unmixed salt to an aquarium
Use 1kgof Coral Sea Salt mix with 30Litres of fresh water (RO water recommended) until the salt has completely dissolved.
At a temperature of 23C-25C the specific gravity of the saltwater should range from 1.024 to 1.026.
Use a mixing pump, powerhead or large air flow stone to circulate the water and dissolve the salt mix thoroughly.
After the salt has fully dissolved, test the salinity of the water using a hydrometer or refractometer.
Adjust the salinity if necessary by adding more water (reduce the SG)or salt (increase the SG).
4. Let the water age:
For the best care of your aquarium where possible prepare the water at least 24 hours before adding to the aquarium.
Maintain the mixing during this time, also checking the salinity and water parameters.
This will help stabilise the water chemistry before adding it to the aquarium
Remember to maintain regular water testing and monitoring to ensure proper water quality for your marine aquarium.
A weekly, partial water change, replacing 10% of the total water volume, will help to maintain
the water quality that your live marine organism need for good health.
