How to mix Aquaforest Reef Salt

Dissolve the salt in previously prepared RO water. Water temperature should be about 24°C (75°F). For salinity of 33 ppt (1.025 S.G.).

Dissolve about 390 g (13.75 oz.) in 10 l (2.7 US gal) of water. Stir the solution vigorously for about 15 minutes, a small pumps is ideal.

Once the salt is fully dissolved and the solution is clear, the salt water is ready to use. Keep the salt in a dry and dark place. Once dissolved, use the salt within 5 days. Evaporation can change water parameters, so keep freshly mixed saltwater in a sealed container if you don’t use it right away.

You should check the salinity of your saltwater again before use if you store it for a couple of days. This product is for aquarium use only. Not suitable for human consumption. Keep away from children. Safety data sheet available on request.

How is Aquaforest Marine Salt product range tested?

Aquaforest Marine Salt is made in 1 metric tonne (2204lb) batches, and 3 separate samples per batch are collected during the production stage for testing.

Each of these samples is dissolved in 15 litres (4US gal) of RO water. An experienced team of professionals perform ICP-OES analysis to verify that the chemical composition is within consistent range, and to rule out the presence of unwanted contaminants at the same time.

Note: Even though the salt is thoroughly mixed, not every bucket/box will be identical. The parameters can vary slightly between containers and around a 2-3% variation is acceptable.

This fluctuati on is a result of both physical properties of the mix and the limitations of the processing techniques available. These variations are still smaller than the typical margin for error for popular hobbyist test kits.

Recommended salinity for different aquarium types:
