Red Sea Coral Pro Salt contains biologically balanced, elevated levels of the foundation elements necessary for sustainable, accelerated coral growth. Red Sea Coral Pro Salt is ideal for reef aquariums, in particular for LPS and SPS corals, and for growing coral frags. Red Sea Coral Pro Salt is a specialty salt mix formulated for today’s advanced reef aquariums. A scientifically formulated marine salt is based on using pure water. This is a necessary to accurately calculate all the elements required to recreate tropical seawater. It is the best way to create a baseline salt formulation that most precisely mirrors the reef environment. Research laboratories and professional aquaculture facilities often use ultra-pure reverse osmosis and deionized mineral-free water for mixing saltwater. Reef aquarists using RO or RO/DI can have this same level of “saltwater perfection” with Red Sea Coral Pro Salt. Coral Pro Salt is intended to stimulate growth of SPS and LPS corals in aquariums and frag tanks. The coral-building process of calcification demands adequate levels of Foundation Elements: calcium, magnesium and bio-available carbonates. These elements play a key role in coral metabolism and growth, pH stabilization and ionic strength of the saltwater. Coral Pro Salt contains the levels of foundation elements and trace elements necessary for coral growth in your aquarium. You won’t have to use additives to “fix” your freshly made saltwater!
The recommended salinity level for reef-building corals is approximately 35 parts per thousand (ppt). At 35 ppt, Red Sea Coral Pro Salt supplies 480 ppm of calcium; the same calcium level required for growing LPS and SPS corals in reef aquariums. The following table shows calcium levels of Coral Pro Salt mixed in RO water for various salinities at 75°F (24°C).
|Specific gravity||Salinity||Calcium||Quantity of Salt Mix|
|1.021||30.6 ppt||420 ppm||33.4 g/l 1.4 lb/5 US gal|
|1.023||32.8 ppt||450 ppm||35.8 g/l1.5 lb/5 US gal|
|1.025||35.0 ppt||480 ppm||38.2 g/l1.6 lb/5 US gal|
If you have a marine fish and invertebrate, SPS dominant, or ultra-low nutrient system, consider the standard Red Sea Salt Mix formulation. Here is a short video on the product.
