Engineered Sea Salt Complete Mixes (Formul8) and Pre-mixes* (Formul8x)

All Formul8 and Formul8x mixes dissolve completely within minutes to yield crystal-clear water with ionic accuracy of >99% between containers, and leave no residue in mixing vessels.  Produced entirely within our private U.S. facility (as with all Captiv8 Aquaculture goods). Coral aquaculturists: for pertinent details, please read our Artificial Sea Salt Primer and general information pages on Formul8 and Formul8x.
