Kent Marine

Makes 50 Gallons of Saltwater

New Reef Formula! More Calcium, Magnesium and Strontium

Kent Marine Sea Salt provides the essentials to simulate a natural seawater environment. Formulated using fine grain salt to dissolve easily and to supply an enhanced blend of both vitamins and minerals. These provide marine animals everything they need not only to survive, but thrive in their artificial environment. Fully buffered and provides a broad spectrum of beneficial major and minor elements, viramins, trace minerals, and enhanced levels of calcium, strontrium, and iodide.

Compared to natural seawater, KENT Marine Reef Salt contains elevated levels of Calcium, Magnesium, Strontium and other elements to provide the essentials required for proper coral growth, skeletal structure development, and reef vitality.

Directions:

Dissolving ½ cup of KENT Marine Reef Salt in 1 gallon (3.8 L) of purified 78°F water will yield a solution with the following properties:

  • Specific Gravity: 1.021 - 1.023
  • pH: 8.2 to 8.3
  • Calcium: 425 to 450 ppm
  • Magnesium: 1,150 to 1,250 ppm
To reach the recommended specific gravity of 1.024 to 1.026 for reef aquariums, dissolve an additional 2 tablespoons (½ cup + 2 tbsp) of KENT Marine Reef Salt per 1 gallon (3.8 L) of purified 78°F water. This will yield a solution with the following properties:
  • Specific Gravity: 1.024 - 1.026
  • pH: 8.2 to 8.3
  • Calcium: 550 to 575 ppm
  • Magnesium: 1,350 to 1,450 ppm

Great Salt

I have been using Kent Reef Salt for about 5 years now. I switched to Reef Chrystals for a short period of time but came back. I have a mixed reed with a lot of stoney corals and they all seem to love this salt. I will never switch a gain.

Kent Marine Reef Salt

I have been using this product for the past 4 months in my 55 gallon mixed reef. I have nothing but good things to say about it. Since I have been using this salt my corals and fish have been doing great. Colors and growth are excellent. Calcium and ph levels have remained constant. This is best salt I have used. Not expensive when compared to other lesser quality salts. I will be using this prodice when I upgrade to my 155 gallon very soon.

Kent Salt

The kent salt mix disperses easily and quickly without much effort. The fish, inverts and corals in my 400 gallon tank seem to respond well to the water changes. Good value

Kent reef salt

This product is pretty good so far but the calcium levels are over 500 with a specific gravity of1.025. I wish the cacium levels were around 450 at this specific gravity. Mixes realy clear and fast.
