The Seachem Salinity shortstack is a great option for those of you not needing a huge supply of salt. The diminutive bucket still gives you a lot of spread making up around 120 gallons of water at a salinity of 35 ppt with the same hand-mixed recipe. Just like the larger buckets of Salinity, each batch is verified by an independent laboratory with the analysis printed on each bucket. More info and a comparison pic after the jump.
Salinity is a great salt and eliminates a lot of the potential variables encountered with their other Seachem salts. Each batch is crafted on-site at Seachem to their exacting standards and if that batch doesn’t pass the lab certification, it never gets shipped out to the hobbyist ensuring you have a quality and reliable salt. From our experience with Salinity, it mixes up a lot cleaner than other salts since the lab-grade ingredients are low in impurities. Salinity is also more concentrated so you’ll have to use less product to get the parameters you need for you tank.
The Seachem Salinity shortstack buckets should start appearing in retailers later this year or early into 2011 and should be priced right around half the cost of the larger bucket.
