After dissolving the salt, freshly prepared marine water can be used straight away. When setting up new aquariums it is recommended that the first animals are placed no sooner than 10-14 days after filling the aquarium.
This marine salt contains bromides that are found in natural marine water, so it is not recommended for use in an ozone supported filtration systems (for such systems we recommend Aquaforest Reef Salt as an alternative).
When using this salt which contains probiotic bacteria the dKH value should be maintained at 6.5-8.0. Higher values may have a negative effect on the growth of some SPS corals.
