Aqua One Sea Salt
Synthetic Sea salt is complex stuff and hugely important to the success of your marine aquarium.
Sea water contains a number of bulk chemical salts but this is far from the full story as it also contains a total of 70 trace elements ranging from the fairly well known such as Iodine to the truly obscure such as Selenium or Vanadium. These trace elements are essential for the survival of marine life and any good synthetic marine salt mix needs to contain them all in the correct proportions.
In addition the pH of sea water over the entire earth is remarkably constant due to the presence of three groups of buffering agents. These are the carbonates, bicarbonates and borates. Together they form the Alkali reserve of natural sea water and maintain a pH of round about 8.2. This is another group of chemicals that must be present for sea salt success.
Ultra modern sea salt mixes such as Aqua One sea salt have moved beyond the above not just to mimic nature but to improve on it – if only in small ways.
For example Aqua One Sea salt is very calcium rich because calcium is quickly absorbed by Corals and Coralline algae during their growth and needs constant replacement. Use of such a sea salt mix can reduce the amount of calcium you need to add to your reef aquarium.
Many marine keepers quickly discover that algae grows quickly in a brightly lit aquarium, sometimes far too quickly, smothering Corals and valuable living rock. The best way to control algae is to deprive it of essential growth nutrients such as Phosphate and Nitrate. That’s why Aqua One sea salt is guaranteed free of both these compounds.
Aqua One sea salt makes setting up a successful marine aquarium that bit easier. No wonder it’s Australia’s best selling and best value sea salt.
