Tropic Marin Bio Actif Sea Salt - 200 Gallon Mix Bucket Information

Makes 200 Gallons of Saltwater

The revolutionary new synthetic sea salt which combines maximum purity in terms of its components with the protective and growth-promoting action of bioactive substances naturally found in the sea. They form effective protection for the mucous membranes of the fish whose improved health is clearly reflected in their increased levels of mating and reproduction. Corals respond by displaying even brighter and more vibrant colors. The extent to which both stony and leather corals enlarge and open their polyps is unprecedented. Indications of the improved conditions seen in the corals are greater growth and stronger tissue. They build up reserves which strengthen them and make them less sensitive to unavoidable fluctuations in their surrounding conditions. At the same time BIO-ACTIF SEA SALT encourages the breakdown of pollutants in the water which is evident in the brilliant clarity of the water after every change. Regular use of BIO-ACTIF SEA SALT maintains optimized conditions at a consistent level over the long term. It is never too early to add Tropic Marin BIO-ACTIF SEA SALT to the aquarium and, if added when the tank is filled for the first time, it will guarantee healthy microbiological development from the outset and the best possible preparation of the water before the aquarium is stocked with fish and corals. This effect is revived and prolonged each time the water is changed. Changing up to 15% of the water on a weekly basis will sustain the quality of the water at a level which is conducive to the well-being of fish, corals and other invertebrates.

Manufacturer Info

Tropic Marin
Tropic Marin: A strong foundation in science and hobby: The successful methods and techniques of today`s marine aquarists are the result of a close collaboration between serious hobbyists, scientists and specialists at public aquariums. Tropic Marin came about in exactly the same way over 30 years ago! This close cooperation resulted in one of the first complete one-part synthetic marine salt mixtures that provided the optimum natural environment for the professional as well as the private aquarist.

Excellent Salt - Worth $s?

Comments: I have used both this salt and the Tropic Marin Reef Pro in my reef tank, LPS softies and a few SPS. While this is a great product, I can't say that I see a difference between this and the Reef Pro.

Comments: So far so good, I love how clear the water became, but its kind of hard to rate it because my aquarium is a new setup and it won't be finished cycling until next month and then I can add the fish, but really in love with the idea that everything your fish may need is already in the salt mix.

Comments: The Tropic Marin Bio-Actif is hands down the best reef salt on the market today. It's quite funny when LFS owners and reef hobbyist say salt is all the same. Well it’s not! This salt is expensive however there are cheaper alternatives. Having a beer budget with champagne taste in the reef hobby seems to be very prevalent amongst reefers. I have been in the hobby for over 12 years and all I can say is WOW. This salt has longest lasting supplemental mineral life for clarity and ultimate light penetration for corals. I have been using BIO-Actif for little over a year now. My corals have transformed with growth, massive polyp extension, and vivid color. People always ask how my tank looks so good; I will tell them it's the reef salt quality. Your skimmer will love working in the is stuff.

Comments: Without hesitation I could say that it does what it is advertised to do. After using this salt the water is crystal clear, corals do have a more vibrant color and expansion and it also seems to help the skimmer work much better due to the active ingredients. I wasn't sure what to expect at first, but like the title says, I was pleasantly surprised. Also, if you're used to regular Tropic Marin or Pro, this salt is a little more course when dry, but dissolves just as nicely as Tropic Marin is known to.

Comments: Mixes up quickly, parameters are right where they should be as well. Not too sure if it's worth the extra $ over regular tropic marin pro or not. I am seeing improved color after 3 10% water changes, but there were some other changes made to the system during that time so I can't attribute the color improvements to the salt 100%.
