The most important thing in keeping Marine life is the water or more importantly the salt you use to make up your marine water. There are many mixes out there and new ones coming on the market all the time making all sorts of claims.
Instant Ocean is one of the oldest and the market leader if sales are anything to go by.
Instant Ocean salt has been around for decades and is a tried and tested artificial marine salt mix.
In 1964 William Kelley formulated an artificial marine salt replicated as closely as possible to natural seawater. Using a formula based on the one used at Frankfurt Zoo he managed to reach his goal, and created a synthetic sea salt that would maintain invertebrates indefinitely. He called it Instant Ocean®.
During the late 1960s and early ’70s they continued to tweak the formula making it the market leader that bit is today.
Now we can all regardless of where we live can make up with confidence a marine solution that will support a healthy and vibrant marine system.
Instant Ocean® remains the standard for scientific research in marine environments. It has been used by NASA and, with proven results, in numerous public aquariums and parks, including SeaWorld, Orlando; Shedd Aquarium, Chicago; Wonders of Wildlife Museum, Springfield, Ill.; Columbus (Ohio) Zoo & Aquarium; the (Atlanta) Georgia Aquarium; The Dallas World Aquarium; Underwater Adventure in the Mall of America, Minnesota; Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas; the Denver Zoo; and many others.
