SALT

Tropic Marin

Tropic Marin

Tropic Marin® PRO-REEF Sea Salt has been designed to meet the special requirements of reef aquariums with optimized concentrations of calcium and magnesium, which promote the growth of corals. The lower buffering and the correct pH value serve to stabilize the natural water values, and particularly, the hardness of carbonates, even with the use of calcium reactors. Natural and stable conditions for delicate marine life are achieved only by accurately balancing all influencing factors.

Tropic Marin® PRO-REEF is thus the ideal foundation for the care and growth of fish, corals and other aquatic.

The pharmaceutical grade sea salt especially for modern reef aquaria.

Seachem-Vibrant-Sea

Seachem Vibrant Sea

Vibrant Sea™ is a highly concentrated blend of salts formulated for marine and reef aquariums that contains all essential major, minor, and trace components found in natural seawaters, plus the added advantage of enhanced potassium levels. Its formulation is ideal for the reef environment and will provide accurate seawater concentrations of magnesium, calcium, and strontium with proper alkalinity and pH for closed reef aquarium systems.

Vibrant Sea™ is an anhydrous salt, which allows for unparalleled uniformity from batch to batch as well as the ability to produce more saltwater from less salt. In addition, it is highly soluble and can mixed and used in the same day.

  • Highly concentrated synthetic sea salt
  • Enhanced potassium formula
  • Superior calcium and alkalinity stability
  • Fast dissolving

At a specific gravity of 1.026, Vibrant Sea™ will yield the following:

pH: 8.4-8.5
Alkalinity: 3-4 meq
Calcium: 425-445 mg/L
Magnesium: 1,250-1,350 mg/L
Potassium: 500-550 mg/L
Strontium: 8-10 mg/L

SEACHEM

prime

Prime

  • Complete and concentrated conditioner for both fresh and saltwater
  • Removes chlorine, chloramine
  • Detoxifies ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate
  • 5X more concentrated than competing products

Prime® is the complete and concentrated conditioner for both fresh and saltwater. Prime® removes chlorine, chloramine and detoxifies ammonia. Prime® converts ammonia into a safe, non-toxic form that is readily removed by the tank’s biofilter. Prime® may be used during tank cycling to alleviate ammonia/nitrite toxicity.

Comes in 50ml, 100ml, 250 ml and 500 ml.

Pristine

Pristine

Pristine™ uses bio-augmentation, a non-chemical and natural method, to improve water quality. It provides bacteria that break down excess food, waste and detritus in freshwater and marine systems. It will also reduce excess nutrients (e.g. ammonia, nitrates, and nitrites) that may fuel the growth of nuisance and disease-causing organisms. Pristine™ increases water clarity and promotes overall better health for the aquatic environment.

 

  • Natural organic waste management
  • Rapidly and safely eliminates sludge and detritus
  • Helps increase water clarity
  • Marine and freshwater
