Tropic Marin Pro Reef salt is German-engineered with ultra-pure pharmaceutical-grade salts. This eliminates any chance of unwanted contamination, like nitrate, phosphate and ammonia, that is often found in industrial-grade salt ingredients.

Tropic Marin also makes sure each batch contains all 70 trace elements that occur in natural ocean water. The high-grade salts completely dissolve due to the purity of the formulation and tight quality control. The Pro Reef formulation is intended for reef aquariums with SPS, LPS and other reef organisms that need a steady supply of calcium and magnesium for growth.

Calcium and magnesium levels are higher than regular Tropic Marin sea salt. Pro Reef also has a reduced alkalinity level that complements regular use of calcium-adding supplements or calcium reactors. Lower alkalinity is believed to help corals calcify and grow faster. You’ll find that it will be easier to maintain the pH and alkalinity when using calcium and magnesium supplements or reactors.

10% weekly water changes are recommended when using Pro Reef salt.

What we really like about Tropic Marin Pro Reef Sea Salt Mix:

  • Fast dissolving with no residue
  • No impurities like nitrate or phosphate
  • Very consistent batch to batch
  • Formulated for reef aquariums
  • Available in 32 and 200 gallon mixes

Tropic Marin Pro Reef Sea Salt Mix Features:

  • Pharmaceutical-grade salts
  • Lower alkalinity for SPS and LPS corals
  • Increased calcium and magnesium levels
  • Compatible with calcium dosing and reactors
  • Contains no artificial chelators
  • All elements are in their natural state

Q
It appears that the PDF Owner's Manual recommends aging this salt for at least 24 hrs before using? Is this just for TM or for other salt mixes as well?
There are 2 owner's manual on your site for the Tropic Marin salt. The first one recommends aging the salt for 24 hrs. However, the instructions do not refer specifically to TM or have the TM logo in the PDF. So I don't know if the instructions are generic or apply specifically to TM salt since the PDF name says TM Owners Manual.

Yes, most synthetic salt mixes recommend mixing the salt and water together for about 24 hours. Always follow the manufacturer directions when measuring and mixing salt, as it can vary from brand to brand.

Tropic Marin salt typically mixes at 7-8dKH; which make it great for Zeovit SPS aquariums and systems that utilize carbon dosing.

REVIEW
I've used Reef Crystals and Tropic Marin extensively. Reef Crystals is way way cheaper and bottom line I've had equal success with both. Which is why I use RC now because it is sooo much cheaper and I water change often. There are two things about Tropic Marin that were superior to me. (1) It mixes ...Read More
