Aquaforest SeaSalt is a high-quality salt specifically formulated for aquariums housing fish and less delicate corals and invertebrates.
When setting up new aquariums, it is recommended to wait at least 10-14 days after filling the aquarium before introducing the first animals.
Once the salt is dissolved, the freshly prepared marine water is ready for immediate use.
- Dissolve the salt in demineralized water that has been previously prepared.
- Maintain a water temperature of approximately 24°C.
- To achieve a salinity of 30 ppt, dissolve approximately 345g of salt per 10 litres of water.
- Stir the solution vigorously for about 15 minutes until the salt is fully dissolved and the solution is clear.
- The saline water is now ready for use.
- Store the salt in a dry and dark place.
- Once dissolved, it is recommended to use the salt within 5 days.

Macro and micro elements in the water have different levels depending on the salinity:
How is Aquaforest’s Marine Salt product range tested?
The Marine Salt is mixed in 1 metric tonne (2204lb) batches, and 3 separate samples per batch are collected during the production stage for testing.
Each of these samples is dissolved in 15 litres (4US gal) of RO water.
Aquaforest’s experienced team of professionals conducts ICP-OES analysis to verify that the chemical composition is within consistent range, and to rule out the presence of unwanted contaminants at the same time.
Note: Even though our salt is thoroughly mixed, not every bucket/box will be identical.
The parameters can vary slightly between containers and around a 2-3% variation is acceptable.
This fluctuation is a result of both physical properties of the mix and the limitations of the processing techniques available.
These variations are still smaller than the typical margin for error for popular hobbyist test kits.
