Kent Sea Salt - 200 Gallon Box
Item # 256776 / Manufacturer Part # 02113
Nitrate-free and phosphate-free with superior dissolvability. For fish only and reef aquariums. Kent Marine Sea Salt has been designed to provide all of the necessary minerals present in the ocean, down to the minute trace minerals. Kent Sea Salt contains an enhanced blend of important nutrients, both vitamins and minerals.
This blend provides your marine tank or reef with everything the animals and algae need not only to survive, but thrive in their artificial environment. Because of cost, many of these minerals are left out of conventional synthetic salt mixtures. The result is that the animals are deprived of necessary nutrients, and may suffer.

I have used this salt for over a year. I changed from Reef Crystals to Kent Reef Salt and haven't looked back. It mixes very well and quickly and doesn't leave a brown ring around the side of the bucket like my last salt did. My corals and fish thrive in this salt and paramiters are spot on.
