  • Tropic Marine pro reef

    Anyone using it? If so what did it test at for Ca, Mg, Alk, NO3, PO4 and at what salinity did you test it and temp? Getting ready to get some more salt and this looks really good.. I use Oceanic currently and love it but it seems they have some bad batches out there and I would be pissed if I got ahold of one... Bob, do you use this I can;t rem but I know oyu were trying another salt lately.

    Peace, jeff

    Jeff, I'm using both Oceanic & Pro-reef but will eventually be using just Pro-reef. Both work with ZEOvit, so it's really one's personal results with one or the other Bob

        Hi Jeff, TM Pro-reef at 79 degrees, 1.025 salinity: Ca 430;Mg 1250; KH 9.6; P04/N03 Salifert's undetectable. Remember, Alexander had batch inconsistencies with Pro-reef & he has notified them of same. Their reply was positive in that TM will investigate this mixing process, as currently Pro-reef is processed out of Germany in a neigboring country Bob

                      hi,
                      in austria, Pro Reef is one of the best salt at the market, but also very expensive. but now, aqua medic place a new salt , Reefsalt, at the market and it seems, that this salt have also very high values of Ca and Mg. it also disolve very quick.

                        I have Tropic Marin Salt. Is "Pro Reef" different?? If so what is the difference between regular and Pro Reef??

                              I've been dying to try this salt. The parameters sound just perfect, but nobody in Los Angeles has heard of it; they look at me as if I'm nuts...

                              I can have it shipped from PA or ThatPetPlace. But I'm looking at $100 for a bucket of salt...!

                              ...Sigh.........
