In a competitive market for sea salt mixes we’re curious where this new salt should fit in.
Fauna Marin from southern Germany is a private manufacturer that’s only just celebrated it’s tenth anniversary, with things ever changing and developments always under way this one has crept out largely unnoticed.
A change in tune has come since a lot of cheap, crude, products have hit the trade in recent years, there has been an increasing trend by aquarists to focus back on quality and cleanliness.
Fauna hopes their latest product will cater for the tastes of such people. Made from the purist ingredients, more carefully blended and combined together this one is supposed to avoid many or the alleged ‘settling’ issue’s experienced during transportation.

USE AND DOSAGE
Dissolve the measured quantity of Professional Sea Salt in a
clean container, stirring evenly all the time. To speed up the
dissolving process, add 100 ml mineral water (sparkling) for
each 100 l seawater. You can use the water once it is clear
and the salt content has been checked. Approx. 39–40 g salt
is required to reach a salinity level of 34–35 PSU. To look after
your sealife in the best way possible, we recommend that you
change approx. 5–10% of the total volume of the aquarium
every week with Professional Sea Salt.
