  • Extensively tested for over three years
  • Manufactured in our own facility
Marine chemists estimate that the chemical composition of seawater has remained relatively constant over the past several hundred-million years (perhaps longer than the last billion years); this stability is largely a result of the immense volume of the ocean and the physical, chemical, geological, and biological processes taking place within it. The so-called “modern day” corals largely responsible for building reefs in tropical marine environments have been in existence for well over 200-million years (soft corals have been around much longer than that!), and more primitive life forms (such as sponges) have been around still longer, collectively evolving and thriving in relatively stable chemical conditions. Recent findings by advanced aquarists and scientists in many countries confirm what has long been suspected: there is no obvious benefit to maintaining the concentrations of calcium and other elements depleted by reef-building organisms at grossly elevated levels; in fact, this practice can be detrimental to their long-term survival. All of these points taken into consideration, it seems elementary to replicate the most important aspects of natural chemical composition of seawater as closely as possible to properly care for delicate marine creatures in captivity. The single most important contributor to success with a marine aquarium is maintaining water parameters within tolerable ranges; no amount of lighting and filtration can compensate for water that is lacking in numerous essential elements and that does not meet the criteria required for survival by marine organisms. A successful marine aquarium therefore begins with quality seawater.

Brightwell Aquatics NeoMarine Salt Mix creates an ideal marine environment for aquarium inhabitants by providing all major elements, all non-conservative (depleted by natural chemical and biological processes) minor and trace elements, and elements known to be utilized in the production of biological pigments (biochromes) in precise natural seawater ratios; all ions are formulated to be present in natural seawater concentrations. Conservative minor and trace elements are not depleted in marine environments, indicating that they are not utilized by marine life or do not take part in chemical reactions in seawater; as such, they are not necessary for the survival of aquarium inhabitants, and are not part of the NeoMarine formulation. NeoMarine is not formulated to have enhanced concentrations of certain elements at the expense of sacrificing others and creating a solution with grossly inaccurate elemental ratios; this formulation is based wholly on current marine science data and extensive testing.

NeoMarine is manufactured in Brightwell Aquatics’ production facility in Pennsylvania, ensuring that we maintain absolute control over quality; NeoMarine is not outsourced as many competing US-manufactured salts are. Additionally, elements are provided by individual salts (no seawater evaporite is used); this enables us to maintain a consistent formulation and appearance to the finished salt mix at all times. Ingredients are measured using an extremely accurate process, and each batch of NeoMarine is blended in a dry, clean environment. Our production process promotes uniformity of particle size and homogeneity throughout each container. Small batches are created and lot numbered to maintain the highest standards of quality control. NeoMarine utilizes ingredients of superior grades, and contains no detectable ammonia, nitrate, phosphate, or organic substances at standard specific gravity. It dissolves completely to create crystal clear water. NeoMarine has been extensively tested over a multi-year period with 100% success on all manner of marine invertebrates, fishes, and desirable algae; numerous species of fishes, corals, and mollusks have reproduced freely when maintained in water prepared with this salt blend. NeoMarine is formulated for all marine organisms, not just fish or reef inhabitants.

REVIEW
The product itself is great and has alot of trace elements. There being so many trace elements tends to give off heat as a combustion reaction so you will need gloves when handling this salt. This eliminates burns from wet hands contacting the salt. Like all solvents and solutes add salt into the wa...Read More

REVIEW
I have tried just about all the Marine salts out there, and even though most will do the job just fine, NeoMarine is the closest one to natural sea water. It costs a little more than some but it's well worth it. You actually will save because you shouldn't have to add any, or as much additives if y...Read More

I have been using Brightwell NeoMarine Salt mix for several years now. It mixes easily, seems to have consistent levels of trace elements and is very reasonably priced for the quality. The corals in my tanks have flourished since switching to this brand.

REVIEW
Mixes up very quickly, no residue or cloudiness. The 5 gallon bucket is filled to about 3/4 capacity so it allows me to shake and thoroughly mix the ingredients. Coralline algae is turning a nice purple, fish are happy. I plan on sticking with this brand.
