TheReef® supplies a broad range of dry chemical salts suitable for use in freshwater and marine aquaria.  These pure food or pharmaceutical grade salts require a little preparation but can be an economical alternative to commercial liquid additives. 


The Balling Method / 3-part method

Hans-Wermer Balling in Germany and Randy Holmes-Farley in the USA independently developed similar recipes for supplementing calcium and carbonates using basic chemical salts, and subsequently extended their approaches to cover a reef aquarium's magnesium requirements as well. You can download an information leaflet on a simplified version of these methods here [pdf].  TheReef® supplies the following pure chemical salts for use with these methods:


• Sodium Bicarbonate (NaHCO3) pharm grade

• Calcium Chloride dihydrate (CaCl2.2H2O) food grade

• Magnesium Chloride hexahydrate (MgCl2.6H2O) food grade

• Magnesium Sulphate heptahydrate (MgSO4.7H2O) pharm grade
