Typical ion concentrations of the sea salt
1. Sea salt Mix with dechlorinated tap water or purified water. We recommend using a commercial dechlorinator like Prime to neutralize the chlorine in tap water and / or chloramines. If the source quality is extremely poor water purification is recommended with a Seachem Pinnacle RO / DI system.
NOTE: To prepare small quantities, using 34 g of sea salt per liter (1/2 cup per U.S. gallon) of water.
2. Stir well to ensure thorough mixing. Despite sea salt solution can be used immediately, we suggest aerating the water until it reaches oxygen / carbon dioxide balance.
3. Measure the specific gravity. Recommended range is from 1.020 to 1.023 A 24 C (75 F).
NOTE: 675 g of Sea Salt is formulated to create 20 liters (1.4 pounds for every 5 U.S. gallons) of salt water into a specific gravity of 1.021.
4. Adjust the salt accordingly. If the specific gravity is too low, add more salt marine. If too high, add more dechlorinated water or purified water.
5. 25% change of aquarium water every 2-4 weeks (or as necessary) to maintain the optimum water quality.
USAGE NOTE: Never mix salt in an aquarium containing animals. In new aquariums: Transfer animals in the aquarium after salt is completely mixed and aerated and specific gravity has been adjusted. Use Seachem Stability to prevent "new tank syndrome" and avoid unnecessary loss of animals in a new system.
NOTE: Sea Salt is not for human consumption. Keep out of reach of children. Contact in dry form may cause irritation of the skin or eyes. In case of eye contact, thoroughly wash the eye (s) with cool water and seek medical attention. See bottom of this MSDS information.
NOTE: To control the pH of water between the change of use of Seachem Marine Buffer for. To restore trace elements between changes in sea water using Seachem tracking.
