Fritz RPM Salt: Consistent Quality
Why does AlgaeBarn like Fritz RPM Salt?
Made especially for the reef tank enthusiast, Fritz RPM (Reef Pro Mix) is made with the highest quality raw materials. For total quality control, Fritz makes RPM in their own facility. Their own, dedicated salt blending equipment helps to avoid contamination. Their production process produces particles of a uniform size, which reduces stratification of the salts. Every batch is tested at the facility–before a single grain is shipped–to ensure the utmost quality and purity. This premium salt mix is used and trusted by many public aquariums, zoos, research institutions and aquarium hobbyists.

Fritz RPM salt makes saltwater that is truly like clean, natural seawater. When prepared with purified make-up water, this product reliably mixes to an acceptable pH and buffering capacity. It contains all of the essential major and minor elements that are typically found in natural seawater (this is particularly important if you run a planted refugium!). This top-shelf aquarium salt is appropriate for use in both diverse reef aquaria or in fish-only systems. It features enhanced calcium, magnesium and potassium levels to compensate for the typically rapid depletion that occurs in reef aquarium systems. It is completely nitrate-, phosphate- and ammonia-free.
Mixed with purified water to a specific gravity of 1.0264 (35 ppt salinity), this product makes the finest synthetic seawater with the following parameters:
- Calcium: 400-450 ppm
- Magnesium: 1300-1400 ppm
- Alkalinity: 8.0-9.0 dKH
- Strontium: 9 ppm
- Potassium: 400 ppm
- It is complete, down to the last essential trace element.
- It is made from high-purity raw materials.
- Its production process leaves few, if any, contaminants.
- Its different salt constituents cannot separate/stratify in the bag.
- Each batch is fully tested in-house.
Note: Never mix sea salts in water that contains live plants or animals.
