D-D H2Ocean Pro Plus Salt Mix (23KG)
Inventory Status: Instock
H2Ocean Pro+ is a new pro formula aquarium salt - produced by a solar evaporative
process which produces a totally natural base salt where all of the main and trace
elements are in complete balance as nature intended.
The pure natural salt is then specially enhanced for aquarium use by elevating specific elements that over time become depleted, such as calcium and magnesium which are used by corals and coralline algae for growth.
Free from Nitrate and Phosphate.
- Chemistry - The formulation for H2Ocean+ salt has been
developed by D-D following many months of testing and evaluation. The salt
is designed to dissolve quickly and easily and to have a specific chemistry
which in our opinion is the optimum formulation to maintain a healthy reef
and allow regular water changes whilst maintaining a natural balance.
Calcium and Magnesium levels are boosted to replace that used up through coral growth within the aquarium whereas chloride levels are slightly lowered to allow post additions of calcium and magnesium chloride with a minimized affect on the chloride balance.

- RO Water - H2Ocean Pro+ 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 H2Ocean+ is already enhanced to 440 mg/l then mixing
with hard tap water which contains additional calcium may raise the concentration
above normal recommended levels and cause the calcium to precipitate out of
RO water removes undesirable ions like phosphate and nitrate from your tap water which otherwise would contribute to nuisance algae in your aquarium.
D-D manufactures a range of Reverse Osmosis units which are available from your retailer.
- Magnesium Pro Plus Formula - Many salts concentrate on
boosting calcium levels and ignore magnesium levels.
Maintenance of the correct magnesium concentration is equally important in a reef aquarium and will make it much easier to maintain stable calcium, pH and alkalinity.
- Mixing - The volume of salt water that can be made from
a single bucket of salt will depend on the final SG that the salt solution
is mixed to.
A 23 KG Bucket of H2Ocean Pro + will mix between 150 and 180 gallons of saltwater
