Tropic Marin Bio-Actif Sea Salt was developed by German chemist Hans Werner. Bio-Actif sea salts combines high-purity, clean-dissolving Tropic Marin salts with natural marine biopolymers.
Natural reef water contains a variety of organic polymers called micro-gels. The transparent gels are invisible but play a major role in the marine environment. The gels protect and stabilize planktonic colonies that float in the water. These nutrient-rich micron-sized gels are captured and consumed by SPS, LPS and other invertebrates.
The polymers in Bio-Actif help create these packets of nutritious live foods for your corals. Your corals will actively sense and filter-feed on the micro-gels floating in the water. With continued use you’ll see more vibrant colors and steady growth in your corals.
These bio-active substances benefit reef fish by providing protective colloids for delicate mucous membranes. Bio-Actif will also help stabilize a healthy biological balance in newly set-up reef aquariums, allowing you to start reef-building sooner.
Protein skimming will be more effective due to the bio-active substances contained in the salts. Making weekly 15% water changes will maintain a reef environment with a stable pH and alkalinity along with crystal clear water.
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.
