Fauna Marin (an Advanced Aquarist sponsor) has just released their new Professional Sea Salt to the public. According to the supplied information, the salt when used at 39 - 40 grams per liter (5.2 - 5.3 oz per gallon) will mix to 35 ppt and yield:

  • saltflyer2.jpgMagnesium: 1.250 - 1.340 mg/L
  • Calcium: 410 - 440 mg/L
  • Potassium: 380 - 400 mg/L
  • Sodium: 10.300 - 10.700 mg/L
  • Chloride: 19.100 - 19.800 mg/L
  • Sulfate: 2650 - 2750 mg/L
    Strontium: 7.0 - 9.0 mg/L
  • Alkalinity (dKH): 8.0 - 8.5
  • pH: 8.0 - 8.4

The literature further states:

Professional Sea Salt contains all of the important macro and trace elements in the correct relative amounts that reflect as closely as possible the mix that occurs in natural seawater, and provides your corals with all the essential minerals in bioactive form. Professional Sea Salt has been specially developed for coral breeders and aquarists with the same professional standards. As a well-balanced allrounder, it gives you the best results when used in conjunction with any modern filter system. Pharmaceutically purest salts, and regular purity and composition inspections in independent laboratories, ensure that the highest standards for sensitive coral can be satisfied consistently. You can find the appropriate certificates at www.faunamarin.eu.

Despite the extreme care taken during production, individual values may change because of conditions during transport. These are average values that apply to the complete content of the product.

According to Fauna Marin, the new salt should be available state-side around Christmas and it is also currently available in Europe.
