How To Use Blue Treasure Reef Sea Salt
You would think that mixing salt and water together would be easy. Well, it is. But if you are mixing
up saltwater for your marine aquarium, there are a few things that you need to do right or you can
do some serious damage to your aquarium critters.
1. You can not use common table salt! Use a good sea salt mix. Such as Blue Treasure Reef Sea
Salt. Qingdao Sea-Salt Aquarium Technology Co., Ltd will help you choose the best sea salt mix
for your aquarium.
2. If you are starting a new (unoccupied) tank, fill it with either R/O or filtered tap water. If you are
adding water to your tank for a water change, you can use a large clean container (5 gallon plastic
bucket or larger container like a garbage can) to mix the sea salts.
3. Add the sea salt mix to the water (start off with less than you think you will need. It is easier to
add salt than it is to take water out, then add more freshwater)). The sea salts will dissolve faster
if the water is agitated. You can stir the water with your hand (for a small container) or with a
powerhead (a lot easier and faster). Mix the water until it is clear.
4. Test the salinity (SG or Specific Gravity) of the water with a refractometer. The salinity of the
water should be the same as in your tank if you are replacing water in your tank. For reef tanks
with corals, the salinity should be between and 1.023 and 1.025. A fish only tank should be
between 1.019 and 1.023.
5. Keep adding the sea salt mix and stirring until the SG is where you want it and the water is
