Quantum LPS Macro Probiotic Salt


SKU: N/A. Category: . Brand:

Reef Essential® LPS Macro Probiotic Salt™ is scientifically formulated in a humidity-controlled environment to provide you with one of the purest & most stable salts in the world.

This salt is a hybrid between natural seawater and synthetic salt; combining many of the benefits of natural seawater with the consistency and purity of a synthetic mix. This salt contains natural macrobiotics, probiotics as well as vitamin precursors which help to improve mineral content, promote beneficial bacteria growth & enhance fish vitality.

The foundation of this salt is sodium chloride which is sourced from the pristine natural seawater located in South Australia. Natural seawater contains over 70 elements and provides the sodium chloride for our LPS Macro Probiotic along with our FOWLR Macro Probiotic, Mixed Macro Probiotic & SPS Macro Probiotic Salts.

After years of scientific research as well as enthusiast feedback, we have tweaked both element & compound concentrations to provide you with a salt that is optimised to help enhance fish health & vitality in LPS environments.

How to mix Quantum® LPS Macro Probiotic Salt™


Step (1) – Choose your Specific Gravity (S.G)

Using the table down below; choose the specific gravity that you would like to run your LPS Reef aquarium at.

Pay extra careful attention to the Calcium, Alkalinity, Magnesium & Potassium levels that correspond to your chosen specific gravity as you will need to maintain those parameters using our Step 3 – Aragonite Enhancers™ and Step 4 – Bioactive Colour Intensifiers™

Use the elastic band or reusable cable tie to seal the bag inside the bucket then firmly close the lid.

If you are using our top up 20kg box we recommend placing the sealed bag into our 22kg bucket and firmly closing the lid.


Step (2) – Determine the amount of salt you need

Using the easy dosing table (above) determine how much salt you need for your water change.

We recommend 10-20% weekly water changes using our salt.

Keep an eye out on the Q for our updated free app.

Example Calculation:
200L aquarium @ 1.025 S.G – 10% water change.
10/100 = 0.1
0.1 x 200L = 20L
35.7g/L x 20L = 714g of salt you need to add to 20L of RODI water

*allow a +/- of 5% in the values present in the table


Step (3) – It is time to mix

Add the salt to ~25˚C water RODI water and mix (preferably with an aquarium pump) until it is fully dissolved.

Once fully dissolved; stop mixing.

Check the temperature of the mixed salt, once it has been stabilised to 25˚C you can now add it into your aquarium.

Always add salt to water; never vice versa. Never add unmixed salt to an aquarium.


Step (4) – Keep the salt fresh for the next time you use it

Use the elastic band or reusable cable tie to seal the bag inside the bucket then firmly close the lid.

If you are using our top up 20kg box we recommend placing the sealed bag into our 22kg bucket and firmly closing the lid.
