Aquaforest Probiotic Reef Salt
Aquaforest Probiotic Reef Salt is a 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.
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.
