Xaqua DNA SALT + MINERALS is hitting the market from this Italian company combining high-quality dry salts and liquid mineral supplements to deliver a one-two punch for your next water change.
Each box will contain five single-dose packets of Xaqua DNA Salt premeasured to prepare 20, 50 or 100 liters of water and five single dose packets of Xaqua DNA Minerals, a liquid mineral supplement. This has been on the market for a little while, but the company is beginning to distribute more broadly.
Like other premium salts, the idea is all about mimicking natural sea water and keeping unnecessary additives and pollutants out of the salt mix by using lab-grade products.
Another recent trend they are on is the simplicity and convenience of premeasured packages. Since all are measured and bagged their laboratory using high precision weighing and mixing tools, at controlled temperatures and humidity, it takes out the variables that could impact the mix.
Mixing 38g per liter of water of Xaqua Salt delivers these results:
- Carbonate hardness 6-7 ° dKh
- Calcium 420 mg/L
- Magnesium 1350 mg/L
- Potassium 380 mg/L
- Strontium 8 mg/ L
- Boro 4.6 mg/L
- Sulfur 885 mg/L
- Fluoride 1.3 mg/L
- Bromo 6.5 mg/L
To compensate for the rest of the missing salts present in tropical NSW it’s recommended to use the Xaqua DNA MINERALS for the final touch.
Xaqua DNA SALT + MINERALS retails for around €28 in Italy for the smallest box to mix up five 20L batches, €61 for the 50L packets and €109 for the 100L packets.
