    MACNA XXI : Aquavitro Salinity Salt

    Seachem has continued to develop and expand their Aquavitro line of supplements thanks to their new Salinity Salt mix. Salinity salt will be made by Seachem in house using a proprietary mix of elements to provide what they are calling a high concentrated salt–meaning less salt will be required to hit 35ppt.

    The exact parameter values have not yet been settled on, but we do hear the pH value will be decreased from the initial 8.8 that they released when first promoting Salinity. One Seachem rep said they expect the mix to roughly hit the following parameter values (note – numbers are not official):

    • 8.6 pH
    • 3.5 meq/l Alkalinity
    • 440 calcium
    • 1300-1400 ppm Magnesium

    Living up to the premium look of the salt, each Salinity batch that is made will be tested by a lab and the parameter values for each respective batch will be included on the bucket. Two thumbs up on this idea. Between settling and test kit error, we don’t expect this to become an industry standard… but it is a good way to distinguish their product.

    We appreciate the forthright position Seachem is taking. Hopefully this will help aquarists improve parameter values while insuring a level of confidence in a new salt mix.
