    Made by Aqua pro aquariums, as far as I know new kids on the block in terms of marines...rather check the new microbelift salt if you are looking at bang for your buck (sorry I get my NSW for free...just a :peroni: and suntan)

    Do the recommended mix. 20KG makes 600L
    So 60L should be exact 2KG (wow my maths are still good)

    anyway, please test the salinity thereafter. Would be interesting to see if the new kids on the block do mix to 1.025

    Why the plastic wrap? The container not closing properly?

    we will only know how it is once u test it. 470 for 20kg is really cheap but then again real ocean was cheap and people had issues.
