THE POWER OF ANHYDROUS
CONSISTENCY IS PURITY IS QUALITY
Not all salts are created equally. The new paradigm in salt is not only about “parameters”. This is a remedial expectation of a quality salt. What separates mediocrity from mastery is consistency and purity. This is best achieved through the elimination of unknown contaminant variables contained in the moisture of salt mixes. Because Hot Salt Reef is anhydrous, meaning that it contains little to no moisture in its molecular structure, it is absent these contaminants.
Problems With Hydrated Salts
Hydrated salts contain, on average, 12% moisture. This means that in a 25kg bucket, 3kg of it is water weight. This means less salt and therefore less mixing volume capacity. In addition to inefficiency, the contaminants contained in the moisture add unwanted materials to the product, creating issues such as residue, unpredictable parameter results from batch to batch, material drop-out, and long mixing times. In effect, moisture is the culprit behind most known headaches associated with salt mixes.

Hot Salt Reef Workshop From MACNA 2017
INSTRUCTIONS: Measure 1 lb (453.5 g) of ATM Hot Salt Reef per 3.6 (US) gal (13.7 l) of pure water to achieve about a 33 ppt salinity or 1.023 specific gravity at about 77 ˚F (25 ˚C). Using this measurement, 3.78 grams of Hot Salt Reef will achieve a salt concentration of about 1 ppt per gal (3.78 l). Always mix Hot Salt Reef in a separate container prior to introducing to any aquarium. Depending on the mineral content of the “make up” water, Hot Salt™ may show haze for 5–20 minutes while it finds an equilibrium with minerals and salts already present within the “make up” water. Hot Salt mix is ready to use after one hour.
CAUTION: NEVER MIX DIRECTLY INTO THE AQUARIUM. TO AVOID INJURY NEVER PLACE WET HANDS DIRECTLY INTO HOT SALT REEF AND ALWAYS USE CLEAN LATEX GLOVES WHEN HANDLING. TO PREVENT CONTAMINATION, ALWAYS MAINTAIN THE UNUSED PORTION OF HOT SALT REEF IN A TIGHTLY CLOSED CONTAINER AND STORED IN A COOL DRY LOCATION SO TO ENSURE SUPERIOR QUALITY.
