Coralife Scientific Grade Marine Salt
replicates seawater chemistry, delivering every major, minor, and trace elements
required for the success of your reef or fish-only aquarium. The Micro-Process
provides the proper pH and optimal levels of calcium and magnesium. It is fast
dissolving and phospate and nitrate free.
Use dechlorinated tap water, distilled, deionized, or reverse osmosis water. Mix
the salt in a separate container before adding to the aquarium. Add the salt to
appropriate amounts of water (about ½ cup per gallon). Aerate the mixture to
attain the proper gas equilibrium. Adjust the salinity (specific gravity) to the
desired levels using a hydrometer. Store the remainder of the salt in a dry
To increase the salinity, add salt. To decrease the salinity, add water. A
specific gravity of 1.021 – 1.023 is recommended.
Approximately .29lbs (about ½ cup) of Coralife Scientific grade marine salt
dissolved in 1 gallon of distilled water at 78 degrees F, will yield a solution
with the following properties.
