D-D H2Ocean *6.6Kg Tub makes 165 - 200 liters of saltwater (43-52 US Gallons)

H2Ocean Pro+ is a new pro formula aquarium salt - produced by a solar evaporative process which produces a totally natural base salt where all of the main and trace elements are in complete balance as nature intended.

The pure natural salt is then specially enhanced for aquarium use by elevating specific elements that over time become depleted, such as calcium and magnesium which are used by corals and coralline algae for growth.

Free from Nitrate and Phosphate.

CHEMISTRY
The formulation for H2Ocean+ salt has been developed by D-D following many months of testing and evaluation. The salt is designed to dissolve quickly and easily and to have a specific chemistry which in our opinion is the optimum formulation to maintain a healthy reef and allow regular water changes whilst maintaining a natural balance.

Calcium and Magnesium levels are boosted to replace that used up through coral growth within the aquarium whereas chloride levels are slightly lowered to allow post additions of calcium and magnesium chloride with a minimized affect on the chloride balance.

Parameters when mixed to a S.G: of 1.025 @ 25°C = 35.5 ppt

Parameters Level Range Units
pH 8.3 8.2-8.4  
dKH 9.3 8.7-9.8  
Calcium (Ca2+) 440 430-460 mg/l
Magnesium (Mg2+) 1340 1300-1380 mg/l
Chloride (Cl-) 19550 19960-20130 mg/l
Potassium (K+) 410 380-420 mg/l


RO WATER
H2Ocean Pro+ salt is recommended for use with Reverse Osmosis water or soft water with a calcium level lower than 30 mg/l. As the calcium level in H2Ocean+ is already enhanced to 440 mg/l then mixing with hard tap water which contains additional calcium may raise the concentration above normal recommended levels and cause the calcium to precipitate out of solution.

RO water removes undesirable ions like phosphate and nitrate from your tap water which otherwise would contribute to nuisance algae in your aquarium.

D-D manufactures a range of Reverse Osmosis units which are available from your retailer.

MAGNESIUM PRO PLUS FORMULA
Many salts concentrate on boosting calcium levels and ignore magnesium levels.

Maintenance of the correct magnesium concentration is equally important in a reef aquarium and will make it much easier to maintain stable calcium, pH and alkalinity.

MIXING
Using a clean container:
  • Add 1 Kg of H2Ocean+ to 24.2 litres of water ( 1 Lb to 2.9 U.S. Gallons )
  • Mix well until all of the salt is dissolved and the solution is clear.
  • We recommend that you aerate for 24 hours and bring to temperature before use.
  • Check the S.G. before addition to the aquarium.
  • If required add more salt or water to obtain the correct S.G. reading.
  • Remember that S.G. changes with temperature.
D-D recommends the use of a portable refractometer for accurate and consistent measurement of the S.G. of your salt solution.

Great for SPS

REVIEW
In my opinion this is the best salt for SPS. I used it for a few years, then switched to another brand because of the cost. After just a few months I saw all my SPS suffer. I am quite sure it was the salt. I switched back and everything is looking great again. Marinedepot is one of the only pla...Read More

Great Salt

PROS
Mixes clear and without residue, Alk, Calcium and Mag levels perfect for mixed and SPS tanks.
CONS
Not many online vendors or my LFS carries this brand
REVIEW
This salt mixes clear with no residue. It also tests very closely to the listed ranges for alk, calcium, mag, etc. I had switched from another brand that had very high alk in the 11-12 range and I much prefer this salt at 8-9 alk. Much less of a spike when I do 20% water changes.

One of my favorite salts

REVIEW
The product is mixed with another salt mix, but I've test the mix alone and it's spot on for a reef tank that is SPS dominant. Remember, consistency makes the tank stable and we all know how important that is for success. A bit more than others but well worth it.
