H2Ocean Pro+ is a new pro formula aquarium salt - produced by a solar evaporative process which produces a totally natural base salt where all of the main and trace elements are in complete balance as nature intended.

The pure natural salt is then specially enhanced for aquarium use by elevating specific elements that over time become depleted, such as calcium and magnesium which are used by corals and coralline algae for growth.

Free from Nitrate and Phosphate.

CHEMISTRY
The formulation for H2Ocean+ salt has been developed by D-D following many months of testing and evaluation. The salt is designed to dissolve quickly and easily and to have a specific chemistry which in our opinion is the optimum formulation to maintain a healthy reef and allow regular water changes whilst maintaining a natural balance.

Calcium and Magnesium levels are boosted to replace that used up through coral growth within the aquarium whereas chloride levels are slightly lowered to allow post additions of calcium and magnesium chloride with a minimized affect on the chloride balance.

Parameters when mixed to a S.G: of 1.025 @ 25°C = 35.5 ppt

Potassium (K+)410380-420mg/l


RO WATER
H2Ocean Pro+ salt is recommended for use with Reverse Osmosis water or soft water with a calcium level lower than 30 mg/l. As the calcium level in H2Ocean+ is already enhanced to 440 mg/l then mixing with hard tap water which contains additional calcium may raise the concentration above normal recommended levels and cause the calcium to precipitate out of solution.

RO water removes undesirable ions like phosphate and nitrate from your tap water which otherwise would contribute to nuisance algae in your aquarium.

D-D manufactures a range of Reverse Osmosis units which are available from your retailer.

MAGNESIUM PRO PLUS FORMULA
Many salts concentrate on boosting calcium levels and ignore magnesium levels.

Maintenance of the correct magnesium concentration is equally important in a reef aquarium and will make it much easier to maintain stable calcium, pH and alkalinity.

MIXING
Using a clean container:
  • Add 1 Kg of H2Ocean+ to 24.2 litres of water ( 1 Lb to 2.9 U.S. Gallons )
  • Mix well until all of the salt is dissolved and the solution is clear.
  • We recommend that you aerate for 24 hours and bring to temperature before use.
  • Check the S.G. before addition to the aquarium.
  • If required add more salt or water to obtain the correct S.G. reading.
  • Remember that S.G. changes with temperature.
D-D recommends the use of a portable refractometer for accurate and consistent measurement of the S.G. of your salt solution.

Product Review: H2Ocean Pro+

Wow and awesome are my reactions to this very well-designed synthetic sea salt. My personal feelings about synthetic sea salts are not the measurement of its compounds or trace elements, as those elements can be adjusted. However, the most important factor for me is how well my aquatic creatures react to the new salt. If the animals in captivity do not react negatively to the product, then I proceed forward with the measurement of its compounds.

There are other well-designed synthetic sea salts on the market, and adjusting those salts should not be necessary. Having to adjust alkalinity, magnesium and calcium levels on a new batch of salt is something most hobbyists do not want to do. Most hobbyists are not aware that a newly mixed or created batch of salt will require adjustments.

I tested the elements described on the package and was pleasantly surprised that the bucket I mixed was very close. Another important factor for me is how quickly it dissolved when mixed with RO/DI water. There are other well-regarded brands on the market that have a reputation for leaving residue after mixing. I feel I should mention that this salt did not live any residue in the mixing container after being added to the RO/DI water.

Something that may also be of interest begins with a true story.

My daughter has a freshwater tank that I help her maintain. Each and every time we perform a water change, I have to buffer the pH, alkalinity, hardness and add aquarium salt. Each of these products has to be purchased separately and then added to this small 10-gallon freshwater aquarium just to get the parameters correct. As it turns out, we did a 5-gallon water change and, after adding one tablespoon of D-D H2Ocean Magnesium Pro PLUS, all aquarium parameters were instantly corrected. I was ecstatic that I did not have to add anything other than the synthetic salt to get the water just right.

This is an incredible product with loads of potential. I love when something needed in this hobby hits the market and it’s not just another product, but a product made with quality in mind. Providing an instruction manual with each and every bucket of salt is a great idea. Providing valuable information with this instruction manual is a strong key to success that should be taken advantage of by all who purchase this product.

Great numbers Product Review by CHARLES DE BOCK (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I mixed up a full bucket, 78 deg 1.025(Refractometer calibated w/pinpoint solution), dKH 9.5(Lamotte), CA 435(Salifert), Mag 1275 (Salifert), K >400(k-z). PH 8.3(RK2). A little residue on the bottom of the barrel after mixing, but not as bad as most. I think I'm making a switch to this salt.

Comments: Tested as labeled which is a good sign, mixed like red sea salt with a little residual of undissolved solids. Just starting to use it will get back with results.

Awesome Salt Product Review by CHRIS L (Posted on 2/17/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I have been using this salt for almost year now and have been thoroughly impressed. I have seen an explosion in my corals both soft and hard. I couldn't be more happy. Unless someone can prove to me that there is a better product, I highly recommend this salt.

I have read some reviews about sediment and water discoloration. However, I have not personally experienced these issues. As for the water discoloration (chalky/milky), I have experienced this with other salts as well, but only during mixture. I turn my mixture water over for a couple of days before adding to the tank so the salt can thoroughly dissolve and the water has a chance to clarify. Furthermore, I use RO/DI water exclusively.
