We do not use sea salts made by solar evaporation! While the remaining salt is natural, all of the pollutants remain along with the salt Some salts (calcium & magnesium) tend to separate in the mix during international transportation as well as local shipping.
Ecological Laboratories INC takes extra steps to grind all the salts to the same mesh size to prevent stratification, so separation is kept to a minimum.
Colored specs in this dry mix contains all essential major, minor and trace elements.
Please note that dry forms of trace elements are NOT always white.
When we formulate our salt mix, some of these trace elements will be visible to the naked eye They are essential for a successful closed reef system.
We do NOT add bromide to our salt mix.
Bromate is an extremely powerful oxidizer.
When used improperly it can rapidly kill fish and corals.
Ozone is not commonly used in the USA, however it is very popular in Europe.
Aquarium ozonizers are relatively cheap and imprecise.
Unless you have a professional quality ozonator to ensure the ozone is precisely dispensed, it will cause additional problems.
Excess ozone, oxidizes the bromide to hypobromite and then to bromate ion!
Reef Salt 1.025 specific gravity/32.35 ppt salinity Reef Salts should not dissolve quickly! One of the best ways to know if a salt is designed for reef invertebrates such as corals, clams, sponges and many other animals is to see how rapidly the salt dissolves into crystal clear water
If the water clears immediately that indicates that there are very few trace elements and likely low magnesium levels Our Reef Salt is pretty clear five minutes after mixing, very clear after an hour and crystal clear within 12 hours.
Sea Salt 1.022 specific gravity/29.8 ppt salinity Basic Sea Salts do clear rapidly Without the enhanced levels of the various trace elements, the salt reaches an ionic balance rapidly in the water and usually is very clear in five to ten minutes
These basic Sea Salts are designed with marine fish in mind, but are safe to use with invertebrates However, they do lack the higher levels of trace elements required for long term care of invertebrates in a captive saltwater system We do not recommend using Marine/Sea Salt for Reef Tanks
It would not be in the best interest of your reef livestock.
