Online fish and coral retailer LiveAquaria recently introduced its first private-brand Professional Reef Salt Mix, making available to home aquarists the same exclusive salt mix used at the LiveAquaria Coral Farm & Aquatic Life Facility.
Formulated for all marine aquariums, including coral reef, fish-only-with-live-rock and fish-only systems, the Professional Reef Salt Mix contains all essential major, minor and trace elements found in natural seawater. Enhanced calcium, magnesium and potassium levels—in carefully balanced ratios—support vibrant growth in reef aquariums.
Before release to the public, LiveAquaria Professional Reef Salt Mix had to pass rigorous testing criteria to meet the 30,000-gallon coral farm’s high-volume demands. It had to mix clean and clear with no residue, it had to be formulated with the highest-quality raw materials, and it had to be made in small batches to ensure consistency. The result is a salt mix perfected for show aquariums of all sizes.
Advanced reefkeepers will especially appreciate LiveAquaria Professional Reef Salt’s finely tuned parameters.
“It mixes up at much lower alkalinity than other brands (around 9 dKH), which I think is perfect for hobbyists who primarily grow Acropora and other Small Polyp Stony corals,” LiveAquaria Director and 2012 MACNA Aquarist of the Year Kevin Kohen explained. “Furthermore, if you’re already a LiveAquaria customer and begin using our salt in your home aquarium, you’ll be giving new arrivals a head start on acclimating safely, since the salt parameters will be better calibrated between our reef systems and yours.”
LiveAquaria Professional Reef Salt Mix is available starting in October 2017 from LiveAquaria.com and DrsFosterSmith.com in three sizes: as a 53-gallon bag, 180-gallon bucket, or 205-gallon box.
