Product Specification

Reef Octopus Marine Salt, is a high quality solar evaporate based salt

It has been checked and modified to ensure that the main and trace elements content is as close to natural sea water when mixed at home,

Small batch runs, with each batch laboratory tested, additional enhancements and adjustments are then performed to ensure their physical and chemical stability of the re-dissolved end product.

Once the salt is tested, it is then dehydrated and processed to make it as effective as possible.

The end result is a product which is both uniform and perfectly clean .

It dissolves quickly and uniformly, with little precipitation, saving time during water changes

RO water

  • Reef Octopus Marine Salt is recommended for use with Reverse Osmosis water or soft water with a calcium level lower than 30 mg/l.
  • As the calcium level in Reef Octopus Salt is already enhanced to 420 mg/l, when mixing with hard tap water which may contain additional calcium may raise the concentration above normal recommended levels and cause the calcium to precipitate out of solution.

We use this salt in many of our systems, with it showing superb Magnesium and Calcium stability, and proving to be particularly suitable for hard coral propagation.

Mixing:

  • Using a clean container: Add 1 Kg of Reef Octopus Salt to 27.5 liters of water.
  • Mix well until all of the salt is dissolved and the solution is clear. 
  • We recommend that you aereate and recirculate the solution for 2 hours and bring to aquarium temperature before use. 
  • Check the S.G. before adding to the aquarium, and  if required add more salt or water to obtain the correct S.G.reading.  

Remember that S.G. changes with temperature, Reef Octopus Salt recommends the use of a portable refractometer for accurate and consistent measurement of the S.G. of your salt solution.
