Fauna Marin, the boutique supplement company out of Germany is getting into the salt business for the US market. Fauna Marin’s Professional sea salt is expected to arrive state-side very soon according to sources from Fauna Marin. The salt which has already been available in Europe for some time promises to give you water that is “specially developed for coral breeders and aquarists with professional standards”.
