Red Sea Coral Pro Salt Mix - Bucket

Please make a selection

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!

Here’s what we really like about Red Sea Coral Pro Salt:

  • Accurately formulated for use with RO/DI water
  • Can also be used with soft water
  • pH stabilizes between 8.2 – 8.5
  • No phosphate or nitrate contamination
  • No need to immediately add extra calcium, magnesium or carbonates

Red Sea Coral Pro Salt Mix Features:

  • Long-term testing proves captive corals demonstrate vigorous growth and vibrant colors
  • Formulated specifically for the advanced reef aquarist using purified water
  • Provides the extra foundation elements needed to promote coral growth
  • Proper pH level quickly stabilizes after mixing
  • Manufactured in small batches to ensure all elements are evenly blended throughout the salt mix
  • Contains all trace elements needed for fish and invertebrates

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.

Q
I recent bought a 60 gallon water container to store salt water. I cleaned it out with bleach water prior to my first mix. I mixed the recommended salt amount per gallons and placed my heater and power head inside. After about 24 hours I had a white film on the walls of my container that never desolved have anyone had problem with the salt not desolve all the way

This is why they tell you to use the water within 4 hours of mixing. The white substance you are seeing is the calcium precipitating out of the saltwater. Once precipitated, It will never dissolve and is a pain to clean up. While I have never used this particular brand of salt. I have experienced this issue with many brands of salt mix as I also like to store and mix salt water for several days before using. I now use Tropic Marin Reef Pro and do not have this issue.

Hello, all marine salts have calcium included. The level of calcium in the salt differs from brand to brand.

PROS
Abundant mineral concentration
CONS
Mixing instructions are in metric; poor packaging
REVIEW
I switched to this product after using a leading brand for about 2 months. It would always require me to supplement Ca, Alk, and especially Mg. After switching to Red Sea, I haven't had to use any supplements except occasionally iodine. Mixing instructions are in metric, so you need to know salinity...Read More

PROS
Do not have to dose additional trace elements
CONS
Alk is too high
REVIEW
I never have to dose elements when I use this product. The Alk is too high, however, I also use the Red Sea regular salt mix. I do a half and half and my Alk staying around 9.5. Never have to dose trace elements though. If you do small water changes with this weekly, you won't have to dose.

REVIEW
I was new to the hobby and wanted the best salt on the market to give me the best chance of success. After 2 yrs of use I've come to the conclusion that this salt is not for nanos and mixed tanks. The parameters are just too high for softies, magnesium and calcium are always high and I can never b...Read More
