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.

What we really like about Bio-Actif Sea Salt Mix:

  • Clean dissolving salt crystals
  • Stabilizes alkalinity and pH levels
  • Corals develop brighter colors and increased calcification
  • Micro-gels help keep the water clear
  • Stimulates natural bio-filtration and nutrient reduction
  • Helps maintain the natural biological balance

Bio-Actif Sea Salt Mix Features:

  • Rapid coral growth, even in new reef tanks.
  • Better skimming action for the elimination of contaminants and suspended matter provides a permanent solution to cloudiness, allowing the reef aquarium to shine in full clarity in the most vibrant colors.
  • Enhanced biological activity stabilizes water chemistry and keeps the water crystal clear.
  • Can be used in new and established reef aquariums.
  • Quick-dissolving formula leaves no residue
  • Stimulates natural nutrient removal

REVIEW
I've had people tell me the type of salt you use really matters, then again i've also seen LFS that use cheaper salts and have no problem so it depends on who you talk to.

Soon as I did my first water change my LPS corals opened up a little bigger. The salt mixes and clears up quickly; ready to use in about 20 minutes.

REVIEW
corals responded well to this salt and it is the only salt I have ever used that when mixed actually smells just like the real ocean! I don't know if this salt will work miracles but it does seem to be of high quality.
